Mac Yak Episode 58 - Important Site Update

-----------------------------

Week that was in sports; there will most likely be an NHL lockout but it won't be because of the players though Gary Bettman will say otherwise. There was a meeting to clean up officiating in hockey while rumours swirl about a big name Jets player. The Swedish Elite League made a bold statement also this week. The CHL could be changing in a big way while Lance Armstrong was officially stripped of his titles. Mississippi State finds itself in hot water on the eve of the season while a fan called a recruit which is scary. How haunted is Iowa at the running back position? Very. Why is The Swamp called the swamp? Arkansas impletmented a odd rule and Kansas State seems to be rejuvented. Graham Spanier made himself look even worse while the Oklahoma Public School Board is stuck in the 40's and 50's. Bobby Valentine made himself look like a hypocrite while the Dodgers could make another big time splash now or in the off-season.


We join Jonnie where we discuss if MLB players should be deported if they fail a drug test. Upcoming thoughts on the NFL season and just how far die hard fans will go when it comes to being a landlord.


***UPDATES***


Our NFL Fantasy Draft for the site will be held this Sunday at 9am PST. To all those who have joined good luck. Anyone looking to join you have until Saturday night to do so. Message Mac D for details.


Pick'em Leagues will commence next week. As well on that Sunday the Top-10 for College Football.


The most important update will be that of a new homepage. It will be launching next week sometime. An email will be sent to all members notifying them as well as in the updates above. www.macapp.ca will still be the URL but the homepage will be more of a hub that allows people to click around the site easier. If bookmarks don't work (they should still) then that is why. www.macapp.ca will still work if typed in as the URL. Just a heads up there.

No doubt in my mind that the league is the culprit for the looming lockout. I wasn't happy with either side last time around and felt like the players could have stepped up sooner and resolved it. Not so much this time.

Haunted is a good way of putting it (the Iowa RB situation). Always the optimist, I somehow suspect they will pick up 175+ on 11/17.

Dodgers comment left in forum.

Always the optimist Galf, take the under!

Vap - I don't think they will do as well but to have two sellouts before the season, a first since 1999 is something big for that program.

Nothing is being removed. Just a new homepage added. Will act like a hub. Have a link to the blog portion, the forums, Mac Yak, fantasy games, polls. A central point like Scurds said.
