Sorry I have not been checking back in the comments at all but just randomly clicked on this one in my e-mail. In a way, my absence from the site has actually had a bizarre effect in that comments have remained relatively strong, hits are still coming, and the site's facebook following has practically doubled since i stopped updating it.
I realize that despite my lack of time/interest in the football world lately, there is obviously a demand for sites like this that are community-based. I would love nothing more than to get re-invigorated and jump back into the Dolphin pool, as it were, but as previously mentioned, family, finances, and the general scope of the project have pushed me away from it.
I may have a solution, however. If our community can provide the news/articles, I can provide the time involved in publishing and general upkeep of the site. I can also provide the live chat features on game days as we had in the past. I can even provide updates to the rosters and the occasional editorial and the rare pop-in on the comments board. What I can't really provide is the research time involved in writing anything factual-based.
I'm not going to lie to you, I don't know anything about training camp, contracts...hell I don't even know when the season starts, or who is on the roster right now. I have ignored everything American Football since the draft.
However, I will start to make little updates to the site here and there - it is time consuming so don't expect version 3.0 overnight. It may take a couple of weeks to get it into shape for the season.
In the mean-time, anyone interested in submitting articles, please take your time putting them together and proofread, as I don't have time for that aspect either. If it's respectable, I'll publish it (include your name and article title as I'll just be cut and pasting for now).
