Unleash the hounds

From its humble beginnnings as a photocopied handout called Road Hockey Illustrated, to its current incarnation as an online multimedia extravaganza, roadhockey.net has always been ABOUT the colorful collection of dedicated players who feel the sting of the evil orange plastic ball every week. But now, the premiere road hockey website on the internet will truly be FOR the roadsters.

roadhockey.net is now interactive.

Now every regular roadster can add their own news items, opinions and game reports, to appear immediately on the site's new Current page.

And while veteran road hockey beat reporter, Jay Suburb, will still be contributing his own candid and painstakingly researched reports, he says he hopes throwing open the site to all the roadsters will breathe new life into it while cutting the demands on his time. He says he'll continue to produce the weekly photo gallery.

"The roadsters always seem to have a lot to say about the media coverage, so now they'll have a way to be the media," says Suburb. "It's kinda the democratization of roadhockey.net. Hopefully they'll use this new privilege responsibly."

And if they don't, Suburb says he'll have his finger poised over the Delete button.

The log in is under Links, over on the right side of the page, a few lines below the calendar.

Hey Beetle,
Perhaps by changing your password ... but where is the location for password anyway? Hmmm ... Suburb may have some tweaking (further explaning?) to do.

Quick Question: How do we prevent people from posting using other people's names?

This could lead to unpleasantness

The Living Legend called our bluff. How can we whine about media bias if we ourselves can now add content.

I predict that the Trash-Talking will be fierce!

Let the season begin!!!!!
