    We asked, begged and eventually threatning the advertiser to remove the annoying ads from the cycle. They have yet to comply so we have pulled all of their ads until they can get them right. We will not allow the ongoing distress of these cheap ads to infringe on our environment.

    You our membership and fans desrve better than that. When the ads are properly done we will return them to the pages.

    Until then enjoy the site.

    Now that explains why my page loads faster today. I think I have something wrong with my ad loading feature of IE7.

    Depending on how close the PA border you are in Jersey there is one coming soon right around Bethlehem, PA :)

    Awesome news about the ads that beeping is the same sound I get when my computer is overheating it was making me paranoid.

    Thank You! I hate pop up ads. Especially the ones that have a person speaking loudly.

    Oh yea that's not too far at all. Well whenever Shula's opens I will be going to check it out I've never been to one. Luckily where I'm at it's mostly Eagles fans which I can tolerate.

    fin-atic if you come to Bethlehem, PA then I will buy you a steak! :wink:

    This was a very good move Matt.

    Those ads had annoyed some I"ve talked with to the verge of leaving the site altogether.

    This along with the fantastic work on the main page are great signs of this site continuing on a successful path IMO.
