Sorry, wanted to ask this on our main board as it gets more traffic.

Is anyone else experiencing semi regular problems getting on BigFooty?

I couldn't get on at all last night, from when I got home from work at 6:30, until I went to bed at 10:30. But I can see other posters were able to get on and reply to threads during this time.

There's been a couple of times now where this has occurred, BigFooty won't load but every other site loads for me.
I wasn’t able to get on for an hour or so last night, maybe from 6.30 to 7.30 or so.
And it has happened a few times before that.

So let me get this straight. There was no game on this afternoon in the normal time slot, only twilight games. A perfect opportunity to have the women's grand final one might say. But instead they're having the grand final tomorrow afternoon, right when there IS a mens game on???? And of course it's the Lions game.

Much the same here......I click on BF and it just goes around and around not loading anything. It's not all the time though, but a nuisance nevertheless.

Bigfoot have a twitter account where they post info on problems with service. Every time I've had problems there has been a tweet saying they are sorting problems

Watching On The Couch - god I love Roos. Been a fan of his since forever, read one of his books, like listening to his thoughts on footy, life, cake, whatever....just a fantastic human being.

FAGAN ON SEN 1116 THIS MORNING - PODCAST :D



*Edit - Hall of Fame evening after the Round 12 game vs Carlton in Melbourne. Players in the game will wear themed jumpers honouring Kevin Murray :)
3KZ, Pope, MM, Dylan, royboys4eva, Roylion - FYI :)
Slightly awkward. Certainly seemed as though Whateley watched little or nothing of the game before the interview.

After just over 200 games in 4 seaons of umpiring, my sons were asked to join senior umpire training this week with the view to being selected for their first senior game over the next 4 to 6 weeks.
Late withdrawal from a game and my youngest gets his first crack at umpiring his first senior game tomorrow !!
Very proud, nervous and excited for him.

Why is The Sausages goal kicking comp closed?
Because it requires me to tally up the different votes into a tracker, reset the poll and then post results. Finding time to do that with a sick wife and child isn't always easy

Well, you obviously have your life priorities wrong. Your lack of dedication and commitment to ensuring that the goal kicking comp is maintained 24/7 is noted and if it happens again you will be promptly reported to a moderator that cares.

Last night I dreamt I was recruited by the Lions and was playing in the NEAFL. I ran to make a spoil, much faster than I've ever run in my life, missed the spoil, then had to lie down and have an asthma attack for a while. I don't know what we were expecting recruiting me either.

* what can I say, my dreams can be brutally realistic at times
