The Directors of COYSDC Limited, trading as comeonyousaints.com, hereby give notice that, as of Midnight on 28th February 2017, the company shall no longer be the proprietors of the Northampton Saints website hosted by SportNetwork.

First things, first – this has not been an easy decision to make. However, since comeonyousaints,com was founded by Chris Gleadell in 1996 on GeoCities, our move to Rivals around 2000 and subsequently to SportNetwork, the COYSDC “brand” has prided itself on honesty, integrity, fun and inclusiveness.

Sadly, since the 2015 demise of the Northampton Saints Official Forum, we have seen a gradual influx of posters who wish to argue for argument’s sake, belittle other contributors and generally seem to think, “I know what’s right, you are wrong – listen to me!”

This has never been what COYSDC has been about. We have always been sociable folks, enjoying message board banter, social gatherings on occasion and generally just enjoying each other’s company whether it be via the message board or over a pint in Heroes prior to a match.

However as always in the real world, times change. Today, social media seems to be all about antagonism, petty arguments and points scoring – not something the COYSDC brand would wish to be associated with.

Before anyone takes umbrage over this decision and the now too usual wailing and gnashing of teeth commences, this is not, repeat not, a case of someone taking their ball home and stopping you play. The ball, pitch, goalposts etc will all still be here, you'll just have a new set of referees. Good luck to the people who step forward. Stewardship of one of the busiest SportNetwork sites is not something to be taken lightly – it takes up lot of (unpaid) time and has to be a labour of love.

So, next week we pass the baton to a new Editor(s) whom SportNetwork will appoint in due course. We wish you well whomsoever takes on the challenge.

Finally, the Editors of comeonyousaints.com wish to place on record their eternal thanks to everyone who has contributed to the site in whatever small way over the years, i.e. a preview, a match report, a rugby-related article, a quiz, a pome or a funny whimsy – tis been fun!

 

 

Please note. The SportNetwork Northampton Saints website will continue under new Stewardship in due course. However, for the avoidance of any doubt, any new proprietor should be aware that comeonyousaints.com as a domain name is the intellectual property of COYSDC.Limited and any use of that name without permission is strictly prohibited. The name “Saints ‘n Sinners” as a message board header (title) is similarly protected.
