FanPost

Overdue Thanks

I would like to say thanks to everybody who's been reading and contributing on RTT for making this site a very fun place for me.  Most of the joy in blogging comes in the conversation and feedback that we get with other people.  Even during the disagreements we've had, I've appreciated every discourse and every comment I've read.  [Except for the invitation to the gambling sites; those I can do without.  ;)  ]  But even though I tend to be a stats-first guy, it really helps me to see non-numbers perspectives (e.g. Old Smokey, or whatever SBNation 2.0 calls you now).  Otherwise, football would devolve into some Matrix-style raining-numbers-on-a-football-field thing, and nobody wants that.

I also want to give a particular welcome and thanks to those who have made their first comments / FanPosts over the last few weeks.  I've tried to thank each commenter personally when you write for the first time, but I'm sure I've missed a few.  I haven't read a new comment yet that I didn't appreciate, and I hope all of you stick around.

So what I'm trying to say is:  thanks.  Watching the team struggle may not be fun, but I've still had a terrific time blogging because of you all.  I just want you to know that.

(Oh, and I wanted to be clear that this is not a prelude to departure.  After proofing it, I realized it read kinda like a farewell speech.  That's not at all the case; like it or not, you're stuck with me.)
