Hopefully, you will put those back up. For California our beloved (and oftentimes totally worthless) HS State Federation and its Sections deferred posting results and record keeping to DyeStatCal--expecially when it came to Section Meets. The only meets you can find on the CA State Federation\/Section websites are the State T&F and XC meets. (For "real" sports like Boys Football, Basketball and Baseball, all the play off results are maintained on the Section Websites. <grin>) I was looking for some historical stuff just today. 2) What are your plans for and what will become of the TFX T&F database?

It will take a caring, supportive, energetic fan base once again. Let's make Dyestat a name to be remembered with a lasting futuristic legacy.

Made everyone feel like family. With John retiring this will be a great move. I hope RunnerSpace will remember what made Dyestat great and try to maintain that in the future. Remember, it's high school, not NCAA. Let the kids run amuck a little bit. It's really their fun site and generates an amazing amount of message traffic. Where else can the New York and Virginia kids talk to the California\/Arizona\/Oregon kids. It's fantastic!","date_added":"Dec 10 2012, 02:03 AM","nest":0,"liked":false,"member":[],"can_delete":false,"item_id":74167,"item_type":"news","pb_image":"i\/no_avatar.png","pb_title":"mike mather","pb_url":"profile.php?member_id=9172","pb_url_dns":"http:\/\/mike_mather.runnerspace.com\/","pb_wally_id":"10030"},"649982":{"pb_id":"4","pb_type":"members","likes":"0","parent_id":"649896","pid":"649982","comment_id":"649982","member_id":"4","comment":"Great comment!

DyeStat became the defacto source for information about high school track and cross country. It's amazing how poorly ESPN handled this site after acquiring it. It's like they were clueless. Almost from the start they took a great product and turned it into cr**.
\r\n
\r\nWe'll all be the better now that DyeStat is being brought back by people who know something about the sport. ESPN may know something about B-Ball, Round Ball, Small Ball and maybe even Snow Ball but they knew nothing about high school track and field and cross country. And worse yet, they never seemed to understand how little they knew or sought help from people that actually DID know something.
\r\n
\r\nI look forward to the new DyeStat.","date_added":"Dec 8 2012, 11:40 PM","nest":0,"liked":false,"member":[],"can_delete":false,"item_id":74167,"item_type":"news","pb_image":"i\/no_avatar.png","pb_title":"Don Gosney","pb_url":"profile.php?member_id=42074","pb_url_dns":"http:\/\/Don-Gosney.runnerspace.com\/","pb_wally_id":"1013148"},"649512":{"pb_id":"4","pb_type":"members","likes":"0","parent_id":"649507","pid":"649512","comment_id":"649512","member_id":"4","comment":"Well put!
