  1. Nice work mods. Glad to see my annual sub $ are truly getting value while you crap all over the one owner who made this site sub level take off. Nice work.
  2. I left OB for the same reasons. If you think OB is the standard that's sad. If you think the way this site is treating a friend of mine, who was an owner here, is acceptable then you better get used to my posts. Granted you can put me on ignore or not read them, but it's pretty ridiculous how many of you supposedly great character Longhorn brethren condone absolutely shitty treatment of a valued mod. Darrell is being pushed out as his content overshadows that of the other mods and for that, they are making him leave. The content here is crap and there's no reason to charge people for it. Believe it or not, there are great posting communities with better, faster, more pertinent content than this site and the content is free or no more expensive and I'm not talking about OB. Having you pay my refund defeats the intent. The idiots who treat my friend like shit are the ones who need to pay my refund. Honestly you should pull on both ears and when you hear a loud pop, that will be your head exiting your ass.
  3. I see the pushing out of Darrell hasn't garnered any improvements in site content or speed. Not sure what servers are being used, but they are extremely slow which is odd due to the small number of subscribers. Content since I last logged in is even worse if that's possible. Unbelievable that pro-rated refunds aren't available for those of us stupid enough to trust the site and it's hoped for trajectory and purchased a full year. Once again, paying month to month and at higher rates is the way to go when the content is literally bait and switched.
  4. It's ridiculous that the treatment of the crossfire author is leading me to leave? I know the author. He didn't ask for more $. He is getting hosed and I won't support a site that treats a friend in this manner. Trust me, I won't let the door hit me in the ass.
  5. Darrell didn't discontinue anything. Aaron and crew stomped it out permanently.
  6. It's actually not a "look at me" post, but it is definitely a look at Crossfire post. It's gone. Anyone wondering what that means for the author of Crossfire? Extremely terrible way to run a business and to treat what was a valued contributor/mod on this site. Ideally many of you will realize what is happening and not support a site run in this manner or that treats employees/partners in this manner. I'll leave it at that. Frankly, I just want my $ back as I'd love nothing more than to never post on this site again.
  7. Sorry guys, but I'm out. Similar to Bigg Ugly's departure,the content on this site can be found elsewhere and more promptly. There is no value that warrants charging for a sub at this point. The one true, inside sourced feature is now gone. I'm on an annual membership, but would appreciate the mods making an exception to provide a pro-rated refund immediately. The birdie features are dated info and watered down unfortunately and already covered by other sites.
  8. Appreciate it Doc and Slim's post is spot on as well. I don't want to leave. I want the site to continue it's progressions as was laid out months ago. I don't want it to turn into OB etc. I'm leaving OB for all the reasons many of us have experienced. I'm simply concerned with the lack of apparent progress as the stated plans were extremely impressive. Having a mod generated summary of the open practices or what the mods are hearing from practices or inside the team would be appreciated along with our mods takes on these developments. Just because Chip or Burton says something, doesn't mean that's the gold standard.
  9. I've never, ever said Darrell started this site. Do you know why he's on this site? He didn't just show up. Tell me something. How much has the membership on this site increased since Darrell came aboard? I know the answer and I definitely know you have no clue. Let me know in any of my posts where I've made ridiculous or untrue statements, much less any unreasonable or indecent posts? That you don't like my posts, concerns, or views doesn't mean my posts are unreasonable or indecent, but thanks for playing. You've elaborated on why you can't afford $5 a month so you would likely agree that paying that amount deserves real value correct? You also currently don't see the "premium content". Help me understand why does that prevent those of us who do spend our hard earned $5/month from wondering why our content is basically no different from what you see for free and content that is already posted before it shows up on this site on places like Shaggy Bevo, TexasSports.com, and other free boards. Next time you post, get your facts straight. Frankly I would have cancelled by now, but I'm one of the idiots that paid for a full year and I've not been given any options for a pro-rated refund thus far. Not sure why that makes me an unreasonable or indecent poster and especially when you haven't contributed one penny to this site. Lastly, you have no right and are in no position to tell me where, what or when I can and can't post and especially when you aren't even a premium member while I paid for a full year in advance. I've asked straightforward and civil questions and expressed my concerns rationally and without any vitriol. Just because you don't like my viewpoints gives you no right to try and dictate how I can conduct myself on this board and especially when I've been civil and rational. I've seen horrific posters on this board and never once have I seen you dictate squat to any of those individuals. If I didn't care about this board I wouldn't post my concerns. Unfortunately, I see no improvement and the trajectory since several of us signed up for the premium service has decreased instead of improved. Sean Adams is apparently not contributing despite the big announcement a few months ago that he was joining. Rumor was Gerry Hamilton was going to contribute......never happened. Crossfire is either gone or delayed when it is available, but has not been posted in over 2 weeks and was the best content on this site.....like it or not. I do know Darrell. I don't know Aaron. Nowhere in my posts, questions, or concerns, have I even remotely attacked Aaron or Matt personally. I'm sure they are good guys and true Orangebloods. I also know Darrell is a great person and EXTREMELY well connected. He's one of the few in this industry who is brave enough to post what he hears, but only when he's granted permission to do so. Except for your comment that you know Aaron, which I can't verify, your post is extremely opinionated and full of inaccuracies and/or you have a very challenged level of reading comprehension. I'll anxiously await your reply and any facts you can provide to address my concerns. Otherwise, opinions are like a$$holes, everyone's got one and they all stink.
  10. Absolutely ridiculous. Nothing was reported here that the sources didn't want reported. You can't believe half of what you type. Just because Powers and Patterson scuttled any Sexton client from becoming our next head coach doesn't mean the info wasn't valid and accurate at that time.
  11. I don't think you understand what level of sources some of the mods have access to. Having access to their insights and access should never go away frankly and to suggest otherwise just doesn't make sense. If I want editorials on Texas athletics, I can get those talking to my buds at the tailgates or from Texassports.com and multiple free sites as well as most any state metro news site.
  12. No offense Matt and I think you are good guy and got a raw deal from OB. Unfortunately, I should not be paying $4.95/month for the press conference coverage that I can get for free at 7 other sites. Just my 2 cents, but the value is in the access you guys apparently have to true sources. If you guys are too afraid to print that info for fear of retribution from Bellmont, then why in the world should I pay for info I can get from Texassports.com? Except for Crossfire and some chalk-talk, the next "breaking" info on anything Texas athletics related on this site will be the first time I can remember this site leading with any new info ahead of other free sites. In Hornsports current state, a premium is being charged for info that is now non-existent per no Crossfire's in 2 weeks or info that is freely available on multiple free sites. Whatever happened to Sean Adams? I know he's back on the radio, but doesn't he have sources? What exactly is the differentiator that warrants a "premium" sub?
  13. Well articulated post. I'd ask the mods/owners at this point, and with no crossfire in 2 weeks and still no practice reports from an open practice today, what exactly justifies charging any of us as "premium" subscribers the $4.95/month or the annual fee for others of us like me?
  14. 247, OB, Scout, IT all had updates. And I note this simply to say that Darrell can't do it all. He's the reason I joined and actually paid for the premium sub, but I need to make a decision soon on remaining subscribed here.
  15. I made the mistake of paying for a year in advance. Am hoping I can have consideration for a pro-rated refund as I may be shutting down my sub as well. The reasons are well documented on this thread and I don't have a warm and fuzzy feeling about how Darrell is being treated either.
  16. Agreed. If Crossfire by Darrell goes away, I'm gone as well. Unfortunately, the content on this site is severely lacking and delayed vs other sites, EXCEPT for Darrell's info. These cryptic messages by mods about changes, and only when forced by subscriber posts is unacceptable.
  17. Why does it take a subscriber post to find this out? Why wouldn't a mod proactively post this info?
  18. Have read elsewhere that the Ags are at 85 right now and have asked this kid to wait until the Spring to come on board. Ag math at its finest I guess
  19. If you only knew how incorrect your statement is. Like it or not, Darrell is very, very well connected. His sources don't always get it right, but they do get inside scoop and share it even thought it may change. You should call or privately email Darrell soon to better understand what I'm clarifying here.
  20. Sorry if I'm confusing you with another poster, but didn't you post something recently that essentially said Darrell shouldn't be posting info about this kid that you thought was exaggerated or unsubstantiated? If so, looks like Darrell was right along. If not, my apologies.
  21. Strong needs to offer Boyd's little brother, Demarco, who plays LB for the 2016 class. Ideally the offer will occur during the July 18th event and ideally Demarco is worthy of the offer.
  22. Ketch mentioned in a chat last night that he'd be surprised if Sanders plays this year. Mahico mentioned the names.
  23. Darrell, what's the latest on the two players allegedly involved in some form or fashion with the sexual assault occurrence from a few weeks ago? Is it looking like a case of them being witnesses and not directly involved, mistaken identity or do you anticipate suspensions, dismissals, or arrests? I too am curious as to the status of the Stansbury(sp?) situation for the Ags. Any insight or updates on the recruitment of Boyd? Ag sites say he's indicating he knows where he wants to go and it may be tough to get him out of the Opening uncommitted to the Ags despite his family's preference for Texas. Also, curious if we have any updates on Sheffield and Jefferson. Am hoping we see some strong commits start to fall and get the momentum rolling. Newsome would be nice.
  24. I wonder if Keith Moreland is a possibility for the contracted hitting coach or hitting instructor role?
  25. I'm relaying what was posted on another site. I also clarified that it was unclear if these players were witnesses or participants. Not sure how else to more clearly qualify and clarify the information, but if I have information I will share it.
