    Gentlemen, greetings. FYI, I’m alive & well..as is my family (thank God), I’ve been inundated with a new job (same company), family items & some various issues that I needed to address. I decided to “fly under the radar” for a spell but have missed some of the good CF threads. I appreciate y’all thinking of me & hope everyone is well. :)

    P.S. - I still keep in some occasional contact with our old pal “Colonel Reb” from time to time. He is busy with his growing family & career but seems to be well. :)

    Welcome back Dixie! Let’s hope some of our others return soon as well - Thrashen, Heretic, Average American and Heretic.

    DD glad you’re well, one of my favorite posters. Hopefully Thrashen and others will re-emerge for football season.

    Glad to hear you are well my friend.

    I was worried they’d thrown you in the clink. After all, a White man only has to defend himself or his family during a chimpout these days to be convicted of a “hate crime”.

    What about Truthteller? I admit the name seemed familiar when he came back a while ago but I couldn't place him. But he was away for years. Comes back like a battleship with erudite often detailed posts and then what a couple of months ago or longer disappears into the mist once again.

    And some of the people that were involved with college football who some have mentioned above would include Heretic and RTTAS. Thrashen is still around and I am sure he will be on top of the Patriots this season.

    I miss Thrashen as well. These 3 are some of my favorite posters.

    Thrashen, Dixie Destroyer, Colonel Reb, and Hawkeye. Thrashen was the premier NE Patriots advocate. Now that the Patriots have gone full caste, I guess he’s lost interest.

    Unfortunately, natural attrition is how it goes on forums. I recall Shadowlight wondering what happened to Truthteller. Now Shadowlight has disappeared "into the mist" as he phrased it about Truthteller.

    What's greatly harmed Caste Football is the lack of replacements for the attrition that happens on all forums. There used to be a steady supply of new posters, but that ended when the hate monopoly known as Google deeply buried CF in its search results.

    Other than Arerequired, there have been no consistent new posters in the past few years. How can a forum survive under such conditions?

    People need to get off the mainstream search engines and social media sites. We need to get our site towards the top on search engines like bing, duck duck go, etc. Google is a lost cause.

    Heretic was another great poster - I miss his posts - used to post almost daily. Has not been online since May of 2019. All I can do is hope these members are all ok and still above ground.

    Yeah, Shadowlight seemed to be a prolific poster but went offline recently. You can in fact see one of his post further up this thread. I did originally find this site when searching for something unrelated to caste football, lurked, and signed up later on, can't quite remember what for though or exactly on what search engine, probably was Google though. Seems they still have some holes in their "system";).

    This is the only site I am aware of with its combination of subject matter and views. The "alt-right" has much to learn, while many individuals have positive views on white athleticism and even have an inkling of the manipulation behind sports, more than it was years ago. The "popular" view is sometimes quite defeatist such as is the case with Richard Spencer, although this may in-part be to fallaciously point out racial differences without being "racist". Few places acknowledge the importance of the "physical/masculinity" aspect/perception even if they may otherwise advocate for physical fitness.

    Hard to believe a blabber puss like me hasn't posted since mid May but I decided back then for personal reasons I was not going to post anymore. I have been diligently following this site noticing Leonardfan, Bucky and dolphin15, to name a few, have been plugging away on football topics. And since Tanner Muse left Clemson there was a need for a new set of "Stud Brothers" so I'll nominate members TwentyTwo and Red raider for their work here.

    I started feeling guilty seeing my name pop up here as the site needs logs on the fire to continue so I will begin posting again but in a much less prolific manner. More a twilight phase than vanishing "in the mist" (ha). I will stick to meat and potatoes sports since that is by far what I am most interested in and leave the "black lies matter" and "fake noose" to others here. There is always the possibility computer issues could keep me away for long periods as well.

    I am surprised neither the media or even here, unless I missed it, has connected to at least some degree this aggressive BM ( black movement or bowel movement what's the difference?) to the fact that what has been missing every day since the sports stoppage is the routine in our faces black sports idol chatter and drooling worship. ESPN bought some time early on with their ten part "Jordan is Jesus" documentary but since so many blacks are like crying infants they just couldn't stand to not be front and center for more than two seconds.

    Since I started with a space reference I'll finish with one. That recent space launch probably had White people thinking that the idea of a Honky Space Colony sounds like a great idea now. Imagine the waiting list though.

    It's good to hear from you and know you are doing ok. I think I speak for everyone when we say we hope you stick around and continue to post - the attrition of quality forum members is slowly killing this site. Sports news is slow right now obviously but when it picks back up I hope you come back with a vengance and continue to share your thoughts and insights with us.

    Thankful to hear from Shadowlight as well as others. Also, I remember Foobar75. He hasn't been seen since January 2015? Time and tide wait for no man.
    I'm guilty of not posting much as well. With MLB on hiatus, not much happening. I'm miss watching Mike Trout, Cody Bellinger, etc.
    Jack Lambert has been gone for awhile, too??

    I miss Jack Lambert as well. One of the originals when it came to the college football write ups. Hopefully he is doing alright too and will stop by to say hello.

    Gotta say, right now as I post this there are three registered posters online -- one of them since 2013 -- who have seven posts between them. What is the point of registering on a site you theoretically support, yet never post on? There's been a number of posters who have signed up in recent years, who post a few times and seem to have promise and then stop, or don't post at all yet can be seen online. I just don't get it, can someone explain?

    If you support Caste Football -- then post! You may come here very soon one of these days and CF won't be.

    I hope we weather the storm Don. This site has gotten me and others through some very tough times in this roller coaster we call life. Things are pretty bad and they might get worse but this site helps all of us to keep a little bit of sanity in these
    crazy times we live in. I've always thought of it as a good group of friends that lean on each other for support. So yes guys let's try our best to post more despite what is going on. Let's make it happen gentlemen!

    Long time lurker who signed up recently, just wanted to say to say thanks for the work you do. Truthfully though the way things are going in this country the bread and circus that are sports seem to be on the back burner.

    Long time poster, short term lurker...... I know in the past this site has had a few financial drives you should look into using Bitcoin for a financial boost if it's needed again and the old PO box for snail mail for cash donations too....

    Money isn't an issue as this site is cheap to run as long as it isn't being hacked or otherwise compromised, which has happened a few times over the years but not since I reduced it to a forum only and switched to Xenforo from V-Bulletin in early 2016 (at the suggestion of Heretic, another great poster who disappeared into the mist).

    Is there a way to get new posters when search engines bury us and forums in general are in decline? Is there a way to get posters who have signed up the past few years to start posting more often? Is there a way to get posters with thousands of posts who still come here but rarely post anymore, back to posting again?
