    I read Dion's post and it hit home. HF is one of my regular stops and I enjoy the information and (mostly) the opinions. Management of this site is on a volunteer basis and I hope we all recognize that. I don't know if Dion is having to support the site from his own pocket, but I'm fairly certain that he is not basing his retirement on any proceeds here. You folks who are on here all the time, how much is it worth to you? Give up a couple of Starbucks each month? I would miss this site if it were gone, and am willing to pitch in to keep it going.

    Probably this from a Dion post last fall:

    Hey Hornfans,

    With football season fast approaching we are rolling into the busiest time of the year, which means more traffic and more work for the Hornfans website team (one guy with a laptop).

    If you enjoy spending time here, I am asking you to do your part and become a Sponsor to help support Hornfans. It takes time and money to keep this thing going every day. Or make a one-time or recurring donation.

    Sponsors get a few perks. Read more here: Hornfans Sponsorships

    To our current Sponsors: thank you for your support. You are the reason this site exists.

    Actually, it was posted here in WBB a few days ago. He was expressing dismay at some of the bickering going on and mentioned that he was tired of it and that, really, most of us don't contribute anyway. If you click on the sponsor link, you'll find that you can contribute as little as $5 per month to help support the site. I realized that as much time as I am on here, I really had no good excuse not to contribute.

    I can’t find that thread. Last activity owed from Dion was in December.

    Okay, so, a few days ago is now the same as a year ago? I guess that's why I didn't find it.

    Glad to see people joining on to be sponsors. If you post here frequently and depend on this site to gather or share information, I challenge you to do the same. I wish I would have... and SHOULD HAVE... done it a long time ago.

    Take a look at the sites from some other schools and you'll realize how fortunate we are to have this one. The sponsorship is very affordable. :hookem:

    If not sponsoring is a matter of affordability, then those folks ought to be looking at their finances and not spending time on the internet.

    We get enough talk about how women's athletics are not profitable, and men's sports have to carry all the weight. It would be really cool to see the regulars join the sponsorship and try to change that narrative here on our forum.

    I finally became a sponsor a few weeks ago. Long overdue and well worth it.
