I read that yesterday on my local fields forum - I checked here for it & was surprised it wasn't posted either. I just got lazy/distracted & didn't make one myself ;)!

From everything I've read & heard, Billy is a quality guy. Some of the guys from the home team at the local field know him personally & they've only had great things to say about him.

Just a note.

There will be no rule or schedule changes for this season as it is underway. Next season we will see significant structure and changes to benefit all, so keep an eye on things.

The words "to benefit all" aren't the most comforting words. Can you elaborate on what you mean by this?

That aside, I'm happy this has happened.
Stand before the gates and watch metropolis, empires come and go we live forever.
And eternity is in your hidden eyes, take my broken wings teach me to fly again.
Down the empty streets head for the seven hills, vestal virgins dance, we steal the fire.
Battered columns stand as silent monuments, deep inside their dreams I see your memories.
I stand alone, we stand alone.
We Stand Alone ~ Covenant

Billy is a great guy that knows the industry and the players very well. He really cares about the game and I'm certain he will do an amazing job with the SPPL.

As for it not being posted here sooner, I had to be careful as I was privy to inside info early on and didn't want to step on any toes as far as the release of that info.

No I cant elaborate, not as of yet. Things are all in the brainstorming, and outline phase

Rest assured that SPPL ver. 2.0 is on the horizon

:P Mo Money... jk

@ Mo - I didn't expect anyone on the "inside" to post up weeks ago, just that it was on The Ford Report for over a day before SirRod posted it here. Usually news travels faster on here, especially news directly related to SO.
