    Hello everyone. My name is Bryan and my brother Eric(Iceman) are the new owners of ArizonaSportsFans.com!

    Some of you may have seen me around the forum for time to time. I have been registered on this forum since 2008 and checked out the site years before that. I am a native AZer, born here and have never lived anywhere else. I have been a fan of everything Arizona when it comes to sports, Cards, DBacks, Suns, Coyotes, ASU, and others.

    Keebali where awesome enough to sell me the site. They never sell their sites and this site was the first they have ever sold. I think the reasoning behind the sale is that they knew how passionate I was about this forum. I am grateful that they allowed me to buy it from them and look forward on seeing this place grow even more!

    We have many plans for the forum. New look, updating the forum software, adding a few more sections, and so on. All in due time. We are more then happy to hear what ideas many of you may have too. I am so glad ASFN has come back to Arizona!

    If you have any questions, please ask away. Eric will probably be posting his intro post in here too soon.

    Lets keep ASFN the place for all the latest news on Arizona Sports!

    Bryan

    Thank you. About time this site wasn't owned by a faceless overseas corporation that doesn't give a crap about us. I have long wondered if we could buy it back. Thank you for bringing this site back to Arizona fans

    Glad that someone who is a real Cardinals fan bought the site.

    I really enjoy coming here and reading all about the Cardinals.

    Thanks guys! I look forward on growing this forum. Eric and I have a ton of ideas we are bringing to the forums. Look forward meeting many of you at cards/dback/suns games!

    I move this thread to most active place on the forum......in the AZ Cards section!!

    Nope. Portugal tied it with 26 seconds left in the game. Had the U.S. won outright they would have advanced to the 16.

    Oh, and a HUGE thank you by the way.

    Awesome.

    Keebali basically ran this forum into the ground. (Impossible to use without an ad blocker, and I wasn't keen on being a contributor with Keebali running the show.) Looking forward to seeing the changes!

    Are they not advancing then?

    Also, this forum is still on Keebali's server and I will have to be moving it to mine in the next few days. When that move comes, there will be some downtime. Will give everyone a heads up when that happens.

    They still have a chance to advance and they have not been eliminated. They are in a pretty good position, but winning today would have gotten them a guaranteed in.

    Great news! Hopefully the number of ads will be brought down to a reasonable number so I can disable ad-block on ASFN and help support this site.

    Yes it will. That's my first step. There will be a few ads, but no where near what is on it now. You all will be happy with the changes I make in the beginning. Hope to have the members that haven't posted on here for awhile back posting again. We will see how it all plays out.
