One of my favorite bits was when he would post "leaked" entries from burgundyngold's private diary... I would laugh myself sick.

    I was still a heavy drinker back then, so my memory from that time is a sketchy.
    Some of the best times ever was the ESPN boards 1999-2003ish

      That's messed up since ESPN? Cripes we are getting old

      • Yeah, I was on ESPN with guys like Bipo, sbk, 2233, etc.

        And FWIW even though sbk has unpopular opinions at times, football wise I think he's a good board member to have around. It's good to have your assumptions challenged on things sometimes. And FWIW he's not a Garrett fan.

        • LT, VA, Doomsday, myself and several others in the mid-90’s posted on the Austin360 site in an obscure page called “You make the call”. That was just a single thread.

          For some reason it showed up on Cowboys internet searches at the time.

          Then most of us went over to Mazevo.

          I missed the whole Hutchinshlong drama until I realized a bunch of regulars were suddenly gone, did a search on “boozeman” and found the DCC.

            sbk92 was a good board member. Lord knows I disagreed with him at times (his ridiculous blind spot regarding CBs for example), but that’s part of what makes a board interesting.

            Again, I missed the whole Mexico debacle.

              That Austin360 forum goes back with me to the mid 90s. There was also a CalCB fan who moved back to Texas and joined the SKB site but disappeared. Then there was ColoradoCowboy later modified to CoCo but he also disappeared.

              As I recall some idiot decided to blitz the site and did this two or three times and the site was dropped from the publication. I think the culprit was Diego but that was just a hunch.

              • I was browsing DMN articles back in 2002 when a kind gentleman offered me membership to his site, thecowboys.net.

                He didn't seem TooHostile, but it was his screen name. After I heard the story the first time, I could tell he was a major douche.

                But thecowboys.net gave me an opportunity that I'd never had. Having lived in Illinois and Georgia, I was never able to interact with other Dallas fans minus the occassional ^5 in the mall.

                It took a little while to get going there and feel out who was cool, but it seemed like there was always some hot topics going on...this was around the time Parcells came on board so it was pretty crazy.

                They used to give you avatars based on your post count, and by the time I'd hit 1,000 posts and was eligible to pick my own avatar, the group of folks who I enjoyed chatting with left the site.

                The thing that sticks out the most from my time there was the ROY!!!! BOOM video. Anytime I hear that song it reminds me of the old board.

                  Can you post said video? I'm not sure I have ever seen it.

                    I think I have it on a computer somewhere. I don't see it on Youtube.

                    • Here comes the BOOOOOOOOM!

                      I've seen some bootleg Roy boom videos, but they're not the same as the original.

                      Things were really looking up back then.

                        • SBK has a lot of football knowledge he just went on rants where he was insufferable.

                            He was rude beligerent and went out of his way to belittle people. In short an insufferable jerk.

                                Not to the same extent it doesn't. He was on a different level. On the whole this board has settled down now and I don't see that stuff nearly as much.
