I have a lot of thoughts on this, but not enough time today to really lay it all out.

Having volunteers provide fresh content is just not a sustainable model. I've been around message boards and start-up websites for decades and the only way they live past the initial burst of enthusiasm is if there's (at a minimum) one person that is getting remunerated on a long-term basis.

I think what we'd want to do define is what, exactly, we want to replicate/pull from the d3soccer.com site... The landscape of information that can be sourced has changed dramatically over the last 5 years. Our ability to look at conference-based sites to gather scores and the like is just much much more robust than it was 5 years back.

I think the idea of having people write fresh content is way too ambitious. But aggregating/updating a message board on various leagues? We could handle that with volunteers. We are pretty much duplicating a lot of what goes up on d3soccer on that front already.

But, again, I'm not sure what other information people want/need. We can expand the polling that jknezak is doing... would be better if more participated... (looks at self).

I have to run, but one of the great things we have going now is that SC has created a channel that we can use to stay organized and come up with a plan if this message board goes dark. We might also want to put together an email list of people that are willing to volunteer some amount of time during the season to do "stuff."

Also also... I have been part of message board community going on 20 years now with about 60 or so folks talking general sports and a bunch of other topics. That site has 3 or 4 tech savvy guys that are admins, the rest of us pony up a small sum every few years for hosting and maintenance. The end is not nigh if d3sports ever shutters the doors, we just have to put the word out here first that we need IT folks to help with "something else."

Really enjoyed myself on this one.  Hope you do as well.

Have a few more interesting interviews coming up, including a Coach I never have spoken with.  Psyched for that!

Just to chime in here.  Without knowing, I am prepared to do whatever is needed to keep the site running.  I am also prepare to host a message board if they shut it down.  Details?  I have none but have some  ideas.

i just wanted to say that I really appreciate all the work that you do. Your interviews with the coaches are top notch.  I have watched a lot of them and finally had to get on this forum after reading for some years some of the posts.  Great job and please keep it up.

Posting hear because I thought it was a real good conversation about many aspects of a program and having a high performing team.  To boot his is a great coach.  Hope you enjoy.

SC - Great interview!  Unfortunately the audio is not working properly for the second half.   Fingers crossed you can get a second interview with McCarty? The first McCarty interview was a factor in my son choosing Messiah.  Thanks for all you do.

I didn't even know that happened.  Everything was fine in the original recording.  I will check on it.

Re: Coach McCarty, I have reached and am waiting to hear back from him.

Thanks SC.  The audio becomes choppy right around the 33rd minute.  Noticed it on the smart TV and on my laptop.

great stuff - enjoy listening to your interviews especially in the long winter months without soccer.   

Nice to see one from the Midwest - teams I am more familiar with.....Hopefully more to come.

How do you get coaches to interview?  Cold call/email or just getting more of a following?

Thanks again

Ok.  So think the audio is now fixed and updated the link.  Sorry about that!  I've gone ahead and fired my AV guy.
