Cafe no longer withering; sets record for most users online

I used to work third shift and spend about 5 hours/night on the Cafe which helped me stay awake. I was basically getting paid to chat about fantasy football...go figure. Now I have a day job so my time is much more limited...

Also, this Cafe is just too damn informative. I feel like I have a good grasp of what I'm doing these days and don't feel a NEED to discuss a plethora of topics. I still enjoy it and when I have the time, I will. But I don't have that panic moment when putting together my draft board when I say, "Crap, I don't know about this. Hurry Robin - to the Cafe!"

Once the season begins, I utilize the Cafe much more for injury and player update info. But preseason...it is more of a luxury. And these days, many of us don't have time or money for luxuries.

Is it a good sign that a tread about the Cafe withering gets over 60 posts and a thousand views?

Wow, somehow I read that as 'a thousand wives.' Something's withering all right... I need a trip to Vegas.

That's just it and I love it. The cafe will never wither. We simply consolidate and get stronger for the next season. :-)

Well, 1000/60=16.6. So, 17 wives per poster?!?

NO interest in 17 wives for me, I'll take 8, you guys can hold a draft for my extra 9 or do they just go straight to the waiver wire?

Ha, this is usually the time I get bored of baseball and come back here from my vacation. Just wait for the rest of the flock to fly in ;-)

You can pretty much ignore the 2002 and 2009 data points on there because they are only partial years.
