Sadly the end of BVN

The recent downhill slide to the gutter of the comments section of this blog has alerted the laywers of certain slandered members and I have been threatened with action unless the blog is removed.

Therefore with enormous sadness I will be removing this domain name and all the items today at Midday.

It's been a good run and hopefully someone can continue to host the same lively debate on another forum.

Sorry all.

I'm going with the April Fool's Day joke theory!

GP is it already April 1st over there ?

The Little 5 community seems to have the inverse 'Midas Touch' when it comes to internet forums.

It was good while it lasted GP.

Let's see if we can get a handle on moderating version 2.0 a bit better than we managed on BVN in its waning days.

For 6 hours longer than it has been here.

GP - thanks for the good times while they lasted. You will have to wear a disguise when you are back for the race so that you don't get served with legal papers.

A better April Fools prank would have been to say that Jerry Springer bought the rights to BVN, since that is basically what it has become. Then GP could retire back to B-Town w/ all his dirty money!

My moneys on Ryan Kiel hiring lawyers. What a shiny asshole.

That said, this is definitely an April Fool's joke.

Is IUSF planning on letting anyone know about Miss-n-out? Just think maybe getting this information out to people is kind of important seeing the event is a little more then 24 hours away.

Instead of being passive aggressive, why not send you message directly to IUSF. Woudln't that be more productive?

SNu to win Miss 'N Outs and Team Pursuit, Green and White Jersey for race day. What day is today?

Good call/April Fools joke GP. We can also consider not just IUSF/IU building a retractable roof over Bill Armstrong stadium, but moving the entire race up to Indy and holding it in Lucas Oil or Conseco Fieldhouse, since it's not like either the Colts or Pacers will needing them for awhile.

I bet that the Tom pooped his pants when he read this post this morning. He was probably already dreaming up a merger proposal between BVN and PS3.2!!

Tom said...

I was the first post pointing out that it was April 1st.

Tom

p.s. we need a M&O post!

As far as I know IUSF has not email the riders with the bracket yet. So based on not seeing the match ups early on.

Men- Young
Women -Brown

SNu - have fun at your semi-formal tonight. Might as well celebrate your pole position and drink up now because youll have no reason to celebrate the 16th.

Does Geraint celebrate April fools day???

Although I did get some interesting offers to take over this site, this was indeed a April fool. If anyone suffered medical issues on account of the potential shock of the BVNs departure then please contact Brian Drummy with the bills.
Ok now I'm gonna plan my CX trip around the US with Ryan Knapp and Sven Nys...
