Since word is already spreading fast, we figured we'd just let everyone know what's going on and clarify a few things.

In short, FinHeaven.com has absorbed PhinZone.com. There is no merger. The name "PhinZone.com" will no longer exist. If you type www.PhinZone.com (http://www.phinzone.com/) into your browser, you will soon be redirected to FinHeaven.

This absorbtion comes at zero cost to FinHeaven. And the FinHeaven administrative staff remains unchanged and as it was. We look forward to what the future holds for the greatest fans on the planet. And we welcome our new members to the greatest Dolfan site on the planet. :welcome:

Thank you for your time.

Some columns will be coming over to FinHeaven. More specifically, Ken, Nestor, and Nancy... that is, if they accept.

It happened because things over at PhinZone just didn't work. Things happen I guess. There truly is no other simple reason.

It benefits us because we bring along more content... Sandra Williams, Nestor, Ken, and Nancy are ALL great writers.

Welcome all, I'll be looking forward to some excellent articles from some of the new writers. Hope you guys bring it, cause the people on this board are very intellegent posters (most anyways). Always helps to add to the already great writing staff here. Once again, welcome aboard.

Might as well take over BillsZone as well.

They've copied and pasted 3 FinHeaven threads and posted them there in the last 2 days.

5 Threads, only about Miami, over there occupy the main Buffalo page

Not to mention, Patriots fans on KFFL are screaming and yelling to their fellow fans about not posting so many "Dolphin ONLY" threads over at their main Patriots board there as well. :lol:

Great news, Phinzone and finheaven are the only two sites I vist for Dolphin info! Now all I have to do is visit finheaven. For those of you that are not familiar with Phinzone, Nester, Ken and Nancy do have some great insite to the dolphins and It is always great to hear from Sandra Williams (Ricky's Mom) GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!

Every newcomer from Phinzone, I welcome you now to the ONLY Miami Dolphins fan site on the planet that is worthy of being in that category.

While most of you may be shocked by the news, we welcome you to register and become a member of finheaven as soon as possible because there is truly no other Dolphins website to go to but us.

Enjoy what is hopefully your permanent stay at Finheaven.com :cool:

Phinzone had some cool people (been at both sites for a while) and FH has dominated. More posters, cooler mods, and less dumbasses. Hopefully some guys will carry over though, they did have some good people, frosty, Ken, and the other main mod (columnist).

A book? Now there's a good idea. I always thought I could make some money from it one way or another!
Seriously though, it's going to be great to be a part of FinHeaven. I always felt FinHeaven was the second best Miami Dolphins fan site on the internet, but now there is no doubt it will be the best. :)
As for what happened, that is a long story and I'm sure there will be a lot of rumors, but plain and simple, I was more or less burnt out on the everyday running of the site and Mike had things going on that were starting to take up too much of his time. There were a few disagreements, and in the end, when this offer came along, we thought it would be best for all. There is no site that can come close to rivaling FinHeaven now.
Most of you probably don't know this, but your webmaster AJ helped me get that site started over 4 years ago.
Quite honestly, I don't know what I'm going to do with myself half the time now! I no longer have to get up two hours before I go to work to update and edit, and rush home after work to do the same! I guess I will get used to it.
Thanks to all of you for your warm welcomes, and looking forward to a long relationship with the people here at FinHeaven.

Ken,

First and foremost congrats to you for 4 years of success in running one of the better sites on the Internet.. I know it must have been a trying experience, but you guys made a hell of a showing over there and always put up site happenings that were worth visiting.

Secondly, let me be the first to welcome you to FinHeaven! As a long time, off and on poster here, I can honestly say that although I don't necessarily agree with the views of all who post here, that we have without question the most passionate Dolphin fans on the Web..

Hope you enjoy your stay herre man!

well I recognize a couple of names from Phinzone (Boston Dan aka Panzer, and of course Ken)... and I have to say it was a bizarre couple of days ... it was as if people could sense Phinzone's days waning; there didn't seem to be much new posting at all... then the rights were sold, and then the site was absorbed ---- funky stuff!

anyway... I'm looking forward to a fresh start here... at least this little bit of news in Dolphan land distracts us from the whole Ricky situation, right? :D

I notice a few people here from the Phinzone like Ken in Boca. MischiefDolphin, Phins2006 and a few others....you guys have to be as surprised as I am at the turn of events, I figured the Phinzone was going to be around a long time.

It happened because things over at PhinZone just didn't work. Things happen I guess. There truly is no other simple reason.

It benefits us because we bring along more content... Sandra Williams, Nestor, Ken, and Nancy are ALL great writers.
It happened because the Editor in Chief of Phinzone disrespected his most active board members by reading their Private Messages. It happened because the Editor in Chief of Phinzone was logging on to a rival site (guess which one) and stirring **** up. It happened because his most active members decided to leave the board, and he could do nothing.

I know members of Finheaven staff can't talk **** about Michael Oliva, but I am not a member of the Finheaven staff. I'm a loose cannon who thinks everyone should know the truth about that guy.

Good riddance.

We're not surprised Phantastic...

We purposely left Phinzone to start our own site. The demise of Phinzone was by plan once Ken turned his back on us and Mike bought it....

We let him know we would not be told what to do by a paranoid little kid...

And that is the straight up truth.

Thrawn,

Allow me to lay ground rule that may be a little different than over at PZ...

We don't like to see personal attacks on any members in the main forum, if you want to fire your "loose cannon", please do so in the Depths of the Sea forum.

So please, refrain from any insults, or name calling, etc on the main board. We're a huge extended family here, and prefer to keep things on as much of a civil basis as we can...
Simple rule... attack the post, not the poster....

Thanks.

This is the best fan site in the NFL and I am grateful to be here.

And personally Thrawn I don't think anyone here cares about the Phinzone soap opera. We care about the Fins and Finheaven. I hope you take your fight outdoors and may you find peace.

You'll find most of his posts just try to stir sh*t up, but he is knowledgable about the sport, and the fins. Let's say he was the Devil's advocate on the Phinzone (literally), but he is a great contributor to the boards. Now that that's been said...Onto some football.

Stirring the pot is perfectly acceptable... we have quite a few respected members here who do that already...

Hi everyone here at FinHeaven, I just got out of school (Freshman 9th Grade) and saw that FinHeaven "absorbed" Phinzone, so I came here and registered. Your site is awesome and hopefully all the posters at Phinzones messageboards come here, Well GO DOLPHINS!!! and hopefully this is the year, but ive said that for about 10 years. But THIS is the year.

Just think.. This all started last week when I, the former Sir Fin, bailed from Phinzone and retreated to the humble confines of FinHeaven. And you all welcomed me with open arms. But I went back because it was my home.. but the damage had been done. Things were said. Feelings were hurt. And it all fell apart. I have a new home now.. a new site founded by the heart and soul of Phinzone. I am not here to recruit new members but to say to my friends who now post here.. Good Luck, Godspeed, and remember.. be it FinHeaven or Phinzmania... we are all FinFreaks!

It also benefits FinHeaven to bring over the regulars at PhinZone.
I just hope that some of the "spicy" writers, like Mike, will be coming along. That helps to keep the whole site super-interesting.

I knew Mike Oliva well. And if the stories of his demise are true, then good enough. He was a petulent little man, who couldn't stand people who stood up to his intimidation tactics, and especially hated being proven wrong.

I knew he would end up being a loser, and I'm glad it happened to him so soon.

Anyway, good to be back here on a real forum talking real football. Hopefully this board won't be like the Neo Nazi boards of Phinzone.

It's funny that you won't join the other fan site...

You know, the one full of people that were ready to help you with Phinzone after you FIRED Mike. The one full of people you told you were looking forward to working with, only to turn around and stab us all in the back.

I need some jelly... where's your spine?


Jesus,WTF happened there?For now Im with Thrawn,I can do without this site taking up my time defending or attacking the Fins and their front office and coaches.Its a shame that Phinzone sold out.It just goes to show that fans mimic their teams.Im sure this site will be above average every damn year and nothing more.At best,thats the persona of our old owner.Ill miss Thrawn and Bad Mr Frosty.I may show back up in a month if my dynasty league drafts finish before the regular ones start,and by then perhaps Ill have forgotten about the Site-that-was/the Site-Owner That Had a Love For His Team.Cute freaking icons dont make up for the sloth-like loading of this sites pages and yes I have Cbl.Phinzone was nothing if not fast and it was designed to be navigated quickly for the speed posters.Oh well,death and taxes right?See ya later.

I'm an Administrator here. And I work 70 hours a week at my real job. But I was laid off for a good part of last year. :lol:

Check the first post of this thread. Mike, Ken, etc are not Staff here. And Phinzone no longer exists. FinHeaven is exactly the same as we were a week ago. A month ago. Etc, etc. And this is a completely different site. We've been here for a long time. Just clarify in case you weren't sure. :)

I'm not sure what you're so angry about. But if you have any questions about this site, feel free to ask. :)

He's leaving for a month on his own anyway. So if he is indeed knocking the site, he's not sticking around. I wish all moderation was that easy. :)

We've got 3800+ other members who love this site. One n00b's negative, uninformed opinion isn't gonna affect me much.

But I must admit, I did misread his original post. And after reading it, I suggest that shotgun tech get a new ISP or learn to keep his computer clean and efficient. The site is flying for me.

I left Phinzone after 1 post. I have my own Dolphin Fan site, its Fantasticfinscom . obviously period between fins and com. I tried to talk about it on their website and they kept editing my posts to erase the name. That upset me because i thought as a fellow fan they would be supportive. I think they had alot of potential, this site is great, the news is update alot, and there are obviously ALOT of intelligient posters. I will continue to post here and hope that some of you folks will check my site out too. GO Phins!!

VIPER42

It happened because things over at PhinZone just didn't work. Things happen I guess. There truly is no other simple reason.

It benefits us because we bring along more content... Sandra Williams, Nestor, Ken, and Nancy are ALL great writers.
Funny thing, I recently was told that Phinzone got millions of "Hit's" so much that they had to add new eqiptment just to handle it. I for one am glad that FinHaven has "Absorbed" PhinZone, I'm sure it didnt come at any cost as why pay for nothing.

I surely hope that you WONT be bringing along Mike "Wannabe" Oliva as a "Writer" the man who proclaims to be the most read writter on the internet, which is a joke. His use of slang, immature writting style, etc etc etc was laughable. I look foward to reading and posting on this site:cooldude:
