    Here's to Coach - Hes true blue........

    On reaching 500 posts I would like to take this oppertunity to pass on my gratitude to the guy that made this Website/Forum possible. This is my tribute to Coach.

    This Site, that I, like many of you like to claim as my own, is run and operated by a guy as a hobby. To call it a backyard operation would be unfair, as the construction of this site is very well put together. And the content is outstanding for someone who not only has a full time job but also a young family and a wife that requires both time and effort. He cant spend all day and all night monitoring TWF.com nor writing articles.

    It may suprise you to know this but the running of this site actually has continual and ongoing costs that have to be met.

    Some of these costs are covered by donations. others by the small amount of advertisements that you see on the left side of the Front page. By clicking on those ads Coach receives some money from Google. But the amount is insignificant. Donations that Coach has received have greatly helped. But the biggest supporter of this website is Coach.

    I would like each of you reading this post to ask yourselves these questions. How long would I continue to spend my own hard earned cash on this project. How long would my husband/wife/life partner/bank manager allow me to continue to spend my own hard earned cash on this project before they say enough. How long until the lovely Mrs Coach says thats enough!

    If the answer to these questions is "not long". Then you may start to get the feeling that I got that inspired me to write this post. How long until this site closes due to their being an inability to meet the costs of running this site? Coach cant support it forever.

    Please dont misinterpret this as a Dire warning that the site will be closing shortly. I dont have this information. Please dont say OK - how much does Coach need for the continued operation of TWF. I dont know that one either.

    All I can say is every little bit helps. Every click on those ads, every day helps. If you can afford to there is that link to PayPal for a Donation. Or if you dont like PayPal get in contact with Coach, I am sure he can tell you about another way of making a donation.

    Coach isnt asking for Millions, Thousands or Hundreds. In fact he isnt asking. And I am betting he is going to kill me when he reads this.

    In closing I want to say this, thank you to everyone, and I do mean everyone who has contributed to this website in some way since its inception. Heres to the Western Force. and Heres to Coach. Hes True Blue

Itís a very mean and nasty place and I donít care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ainít about how hard ya hit. Itís about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. Thatís how winning is done! Now if you know what youíre worth then go out and get what youíre worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ainít where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ainít you!

    Congrats Coach, here's to a whole lot more posts, possibly about cheerleaders and Mat Henjak... But probably not in the same thread now that I think about it.

    Jealous of Coach? Yes, I'd love to have all that puter knowledge

    Jealous of Exile? He can't even pick 50% of the games correct! He wants to be like me when he grows up!

    Congrats on the 500 pass. It'll take me forever.

    Have found this site sometimes amusing and others really informative, Thanks Coach. My hats off to you.
    I'll send you 10% of my lotto win to-night. Don't laugh, could be worth it!!

    Yeah, full marks to Coach on creating this wonderful beast, the best Rugby chat site in Australia by miles (I'm not bias am I?).
    Any support he gets either financially or in kind goes towards making this site even better, with more features, to make your experience here even more enjoyable.
    Huge plans are afoot during the year to make the S14 2007 season an absolute ball tearer on TWF!
    Also a great effort by our intrepid Exiled one to reach the 500 Club, well done mate
