Semi-Retirement: Launching DraftTV.com
 
Well, if you have listened to the Podcast recently or followed me on twitter, you know I have opened my own website:

www.DraftTV.com


It has been a true honor to work under one of the best NFL Draft minds and internet entrepreneurs in Scott Wright. He has been beyond kind and patient with me learning the process as well as taking me down to the Senior Bowl on his dime and putting trust in me to do work for a website that he rarely let others contribute to.


This forum has been a tremendous part of my life, has gotten me through some of the darker times and given me such a release from the "real world". Along with that, finding true friends in all of these like comahan, Forenci, vidae, Deep, fenikz, DG, Caddy, Njx, Scotty, and others. It also have branched off some great draft minds like Eric Stoner, Ryan Lownes, Matthew Jones, Jordan Grove, and others.

I really can't do a gigantic write-up thanking everyone out there for everything they have done for the forum, site, and me, but my 10,000th post does the trick from back in the day.


I'm not gone forever or anything, I'll still be an admin, popping in and out, still doing the fantasy stuff (maybe?) but I think it is worth noting and telling people about as we go forward

I hope people will support both DraftTV and DraftCountdown going forward! I look forward to how it will go in the future :)

I do, he has been helping me promote it and been awesome about that.

So who's gonna do all the work on SWDC now?

Halsey 04-28-2013 07:00 PM

Still doing the podcast? If not, what are Scott's plans with it?

Can you make the text on the forums anything except Comic Sans?

GOOD LUCK SHANE!

CJSchneider 04-28-2013 09:40 PM

Good Luck, Shane. I look forward to wasting my time on two sites from now on instead of one.

Yeah, this sounds about right.

Nice site shane - looks like you are going to be doing more video type stuff rather than text based

Congrats Shane.

Good luck brosky :)

princefielder28 04-29-2013 08:19 AM

Congrats Shane! Exciting to see how this site has branched out with its contributors on the forum

nfl.com links?

Best of luck Shane, I'll be checking in on your site as well. Excited for the videos.

CJSchneider 04-29-2013 01:00 PM

So in all seriousness, is this a situation where we will see an evolution of each of your own strengths and then at some time rejoin or is this a permanent separation on the best of terms. Also, I do recognize that in addition to natural collaboration, there will be a new work load generated for each site. Will some of the persons who have been contributors have additional opportunities to do so as well as possibly seeing new contributors at both sites?

D-Unit 04-29-2013 03:20 PM

That's a kick ass logo Shane! :)

Good luck chasing it! You will get there, I know it!

tjsunstein 04-29-2013 04:36 PM

Kudos to all the 2014 content you've put together already. Honestly, I'm going to stay loyal to these boards, nothing against your forum, but I will be a regular visitor for your content on the main page.

Still listening to the podcasts. Gonna have to check out your others. It does still say that you and Scott are counting down to the 2013 draft on your podcast page, however.

niel89 04-29-2013 05:13 PM

Congrats man. I'll be checking in on it. Just please put up content. The idea of putting up actual cut ups and showing visuals in very interesting. Best of luck in all your endeavors.

vikes_28 04-29-2013 07:55 PM

cool looking site. Congrats JBond.

WCH 04-29-2013 08:53 PM

This is a great idea and I definitely think there's a market for this type of content.

Best of luck!

brat316 04-29-2013 09:26 PM

Will there be scouting reports?

There's already two up.

I really like this format. Much better for the ADD generation of people who prefer to watch videos rather than read.

bigbluedefense 04-30-2013 08:36 AM

Am I the only one having issues logging into Shane's site and trying to post?

Also, Shane, can you set up team forums on there as well? I'm getting logged out of your forum every team I click my user cp (even after I click the remember me checkbox) and the site itself works on and off. Is there a server issue?
