Thanks for all the positive statements. I know I will miss being an Ed at times. Not too often though.

If someone does come forward to run the site (I hope they do) then I hope all will also support them. It isn't easy trying to tread the fine line between what you should allow and what shouldn't be.

I have made some wonderful friends through my involvement with this site in it's various incarnations - from geocites to Rivals to here. I have learnt so much about rugby from reading the posts from the likes of broonie, oddshaped, ajack, Robbie (although his turn of phrase can rub people up the wrong way) and many others. That we all knew who Clive Norling was but still respected him for posting and never became abusive, even after tough losses - was another highlight.

The community we generated (some may call it a clique) where we did wonderful things such as picnics, the foreign trips and of course the wonderful Saints with Heart fund raising.

I will give you a wonderful example of that community. Through here I got to meet a lovely lady call Lorraine O'Malley (LOM please forgive me if it is spelt incorrectly). LOM has a wonderful way with the English language and so for a time the off topic board was known as planet LOM. Anyhow LOM was also fluent in French which came in handy on away trips. I was sitting next to LOM in the stand in Biarritz as she stood up and gave L'arbiter a tirade in fluent French much to the amusement of the locals around us. As she sat down we did point out that this particular ref was Scottish and wouldn't have understood a word smiling smiley

One more LOM story. She met through this community another old stalwart Mark Hazell. They are now married and have a wonderful young son.

We should all stand proud of what COYSDC has provided over the years.

Things change and I hope whatever comes next here or elsewhere can achieve half as much.
