    B BGO's Last Day

    A number of you have asked when the site will close.

    BGO's last day of operation will be Monday, 3 February (the day after the Super Bowl).

    We will ensure we have contact info of this season's contest winners so we can get prizes out. For anyone who isn't aware, Elephant has opened a Facebook group 'The 5 O'Clock Club' that we encourage you to join so those that desire can continue to stay in touch. That page also has chat functionality so those that want to continue game day chats can continue to do so.

    If anyone has any questions, please let us know.

    So I got a forwarded news (?) piece from a buddy of mine the other day about Facebook charging users in the near future. Knowing this person as I do, it could easily be fake news that took him for a ride. The mental faculties here are far better judges of whether this is true or not. Thoughts? I only bring this up because many of us are going to keep in touch through El's page there, and if this does come to pass, well, that would suck.

    I think that rumor gets floated every year. Can't imagine they'd go that route.

    I think they would lose money in the long run. Their earnings this year will nearly be double what they were expecting from their ad revenue, so the need to charge is not there.

    The day they do that is they day they lose millions of members. They are an ad revenue based platform that just made Zuckerberg $27 Billion in the last year (and that's when Facebook is supposedly declining). I'd say your friend has indeed been taken for a ride.

    I would be foolish to try to turn RGIII into a pocket passer. It would be foolish. The way he is as a runner, we have to take advantage of that. He strikes fear into defensive coordinators when he runs outside. I'm going to let him be himself. -Jay Gruden Jan. 2014

    Is there an echo in here?
