Ladies and Gentlemen...

As many of you know, we have been working on making the commentary of FinHeaven better. We have worked on this in many folds....

First and foremost, we have a new commentary section. No longer will commentary be posted in the forum and look like "glorified posts." Instead, you can find all the new commentary here: http://www.finheaven.com/cms/

Secondly, we are bringing a long a new group of writers (some of which aren't named at the time...) and we'll also be having special guests from time to time... :cooldude:

Here is the list for this season:

Steve Sykes - You can expect to see his articles every week! Many on the forums say that he is one of the BEST Dolphin writers around... and he is now writing on a weekly basis for FinHeaven!

Matt Kent - Love him or hate him, he is the "controversial" writer for the site. Matt, known as being the pessimistic-Dolphin fan, will bring his views on a weekly/biweekly basis.

Phil Unwin - While he is a veteran of the board (and our 3000th member), Phil is a new addition to the staff. Expect to see his intelligent insight on a weekly basis.

Miguel Lorenzo - Resident forum mod and writer, Miguel will be brining us his weekly predictions for the NFL along with his opinions.

Brian Recchi - Brian did a fantastic job last year with the Beasts of the East that we decided to carry it on for another year. Brian will bring to us his views on upcoming and previous games on ALL the AFC East teams.

Frank Corral - Writer since 2000, Frank will be writing us his great, to the point post game wrapups in his "Weekly Phinishers"

Clumpy - Yes... we know, a Bills fan on the staff, what has the site come to? Well, he will be doing his specialty... writing about the salary cap. Not so much on a weekly basis, but on a "whenever" basis... lol. We definitely look forward to this!

Mike Olivia - Mike will be assisting FinHeaven with Fantasy Football this season with his weekly views and such.

Other special guests to come!

To introduce the new commentary section is Steve Sykes, who is opening up the commentary system! You can view his new article here: http://www.finheaven.com/cms/12.html

For the rest of the week, a NEW Fantasy Football article will be up. Additionally, there will be a couple articles from special guests to help bring some life to Dolphin fans... since news has been DEAD tired!

I hope everyone enjoys the new commentary system and commentary for that matter. There are still many more features to come, so keep your mind and ears open!

Sincerely,
Andrew Tatum

I'd also like to announce that we've added one, possibly two more writers that we are very excited about who are not listed above. We will add them to the list once their roles are confirmed. :)

I don't know ... that name bothers me a bit. Is an "Unwin" the same thing as a loss? :chuckle:

But seriously folks ... :goof:

I very much look forward toreading Phil's contributions.

I should probably be writing about the Bills, given that. :lol:

Thanks!

As Muck said, my first article will be up soon, but for those jonesing for a preview of my work, here are some recent articles from one of the other sites I write for frequently, pistonsonline.com (a fan site dedicated to the 2004 NBA champs).

Not sure if anyone here is a subscriber, but I also write for drstats.com, a fantasy football site. If you're a subscriber, thanks. If not, check it out. Thus endeth the cheap plug. :)

I also write for mopsquad.com, but unfortunately, a server disaster sent my work (and the old site) down the memory hole, and I haven't gotten to posting anything to the new site yet.

PHil + UNWIN = PHUNWIN. :) I should have specified that earlier to clear up any confusion. Thanks again!
Actually, I should probably change it to PHINWIN (PHIl + uNWIN). You know, for good luck.

Wow, nice Salary Cap chart. I'm god-awful at math, so I could never in my life put together something like that.

I am glad to be here. I know my writing is somewhat controversial but it is the way I see it. However, always remember that I am a Fin fan through and through.

To all the fans who are relatively new I hope you appreciate, as much as I do, the caliber of writing and participation from this roster of fans. These guys write great stuff and I appreciate them. I am their fan as well.

That would be a really great idea and play on words!

I will really be looking forward to reading these articles through the season. Thanks FinHeaven and Clumpy ;) :up:
