I want to thank each and every one of you first and foremost. Yes, I have decided to permanently make PhinZone my sites forum and as such this one will no longer be open. I have toyed with the idea of selling it outright but the main page of is something I won't part with.

I want to tell you all this is not an easy decision by me. Most of you will remember that I was one of the original members of the Miami Herald forum and when that forum collapsed I tried to integrate as many from their into a new forum that we could call home. For the last eight years that has been the case.

I could single each and every one of you out for a myriad of reasons but I want to personally thank SOBE for helping me get this going in the very beginning. It would never have happened without his help.

Freak, you sir are a major pain in the ass. That being said you already know that... We may have had a few go arounds but I was very thrilled to see you back on the forum and behaving somewhat...LOL. There are and never was any hard feelings my friend.

Guys, and gals, this has been an incredible ride for me and through forums I have achieved goals in my life I never thought I would. Many have you have heard me talk about the growth of my son Logan and you all have seen me grow as a writer. Sometimes better than others but I still hack away at it.

Truth be told, I'm going to miss this place but I will likely be posting more often on Matt's site because to be honest, I didn't post here because I didn't want to be that elephant in the room. That owner who might be judging or something. It was easier to stay away and let you guys handle it and trying to add mods was often more difficult because you never knew what my reasons were.

This has been and will always be my fondest memory. I fought early on for a forum and got it, then had to migrate it over here once I took over this site. Over the years we have seen a lot of changes and friends come and go.

Words will never fully express my gratitude to all of you and my real failure was never getting this forum to the level it should be at. I can assure you that Matt's forum will reach that goal and if it doesn't it won't be for a lack of effort as it was with me.

All of you are great people and I have cherished every post that I have read and every argument we have enjoyed.

Thank you for all your visits and thank you for your trust in me to provide you with a platform to express your opinions. I want all of you to know something about Matt Kent. He is one of the most honest men I have met. I think of him not on terms of a friend or simple acquaintance but a brother.

Matt and I have had a lot of long talks over the last six or so years and for whatever reason we couldn't come to a solid way to integrate our interests into a cohesive bond that both of us could gain value in. With his new site we now have that opportunity and it took only a short talk to get to the same conclusion.

From my end, nothing pleases me more. Matt is a great guy and believe me when I say that over the years I have had plenty of opportunities to do things similar to this one but I have always wanted to work with Matt. Why? Because I trust him. Implicitly.

I know all of you will grow to enjoy the new forum and I will make one very simple promise to each and every one of you. I will not permanently delete this forum. I will only redirect it. In the event that Matt's forum doesn't take root I will promise you to re-activate this one so you have a place to chat and continue your friendships.

I won't say I will miss you because I'm likely going to see a lot more of you least that is the plan.

Thank you all for being such great friends and the support you have given me is extraordinary.

Thanks sincerely to all of you.

First of all let me say I have a huge amount of respect for Brian and what he has put together. He is not only a great webmaster and fan, he is also a friend.

I owned and operated FinHeaven for about 6 years. It was an exciting thing to be involved with, but in the end I was not able to enjoy it the way I wanted to enjoy it, which was just being a fan. It had gotten so big that it was a business and the costs were high and I sold it because it just wasn't what I wanted. So I just started Phinzone.

Plain and simple it is about being a fan. The concept is simply a place for real, hardcore fans to come and talk about the team. Never want it to be too big. When it is too big than it loses the personal touch. Never any Ads and a strict policy on trolls and BS. Quality posts by fans who love the team.

I am 50 and have been a Dolphin fan my whole life. There is no decision that Brian is going to move this direction, but if he did, we welcome all of you. You would be treated with respect for you tenure here, and would be welcome to participate in the growth and development of the site as moderators and admins if you were so inclined.

We are going to have some giveaways, and setup ways you can personalize your presence with photo albums etc. Most of all we want good fans to talk Dolphins football with.

I hope if Brian goes this path you will come on over and give it a chance. The strength of any forum is the people. And so there would be no reason for that to change because everyone here is welcome.

If you have ANY questions, concerns, or if you want to get involved. Just hit me up. My email is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Thanks for hearing me. Brian thanks my brother for handing me the mike for a minute.

No matter what evolves I think we can all agree: GO DOLPHINS!]]>

Subject: Matt Kent to post under my name - by: Txmedic5
As you know I have been talking to Matt Kent who is the owner of the forum we have been talking about. He wants to speak with all of you.

I can't remember how to unblock the forum and don't have a lot of time today to try and figure it out so I have invited him to talk to all of you through my login.

ANY concerns you have about a forum move you should feel free to openly ask him. He is a great guy, and I consider him a personal friend so please listen to what he has to say.
