What is really interesting about the success of Dr. Ken's podcast is the "breaking down the fourth wall" transparency that Management has welcomed. I see this as a huge positive of the Board.

This got me thinking: what's the long-term goal for the Board? Is there one? Does there have to be one?

The reason I'm asking is because I see a big opportunity for this platform to grow and expand in the same light as other online forums I've used. Plus, since a moderately substantial investment by was required to purchase the Board, I'm assuming some thought was given to potential growth.

The goal should be to not have the owners take a hard left into FuckHeadsville

I believe the long term goal is to end world hunger

The short term goal is to take down the evil shirt button industry.

The goal is a bigger and better Lakemoorfest.

I've heard that the Wisemen plan on holding a bimonthly CFMB gathering in a NW suburb where they will be able to raise modest sums of money through selling drinks and raffle tickets to board members, and put those funds into future development of the site and social media campaigns to advertise the site to Chicago sports and media fans.

you and I worked on a blog a while back. Are you trying to monetize things? Do you want to pull traffic here for other reasons? What are your thoughts related to a goal?

Curiosity, mainly.

With as much traffic as this site gets, and with as many interests and skill sets inherent in the members of this place, AND considering the board was just sold for what sounds like a substantial amount... I wonder what the Wisemen have in store.

Of course, the main goal could simply be to remain a place for people to call each other names.

In the past the three who purchased the board have said they don't want to monetize it. Way in the past I approached BF about turning this into a msg board and blog. I received no response. I've come to realize BF mainly just wanted to cash out on the board for himself.

Cool. People spend money on hobbies all the time.

In the event that something were to be done, however, I could see value in doing something close to what you've approach past ownership about.

You know; instead of using this site to simply talk about other sites doing it.

I agree there is loft talent here who's opinions on sports could be showcased in a better manner.

I'd say that getting Mac to appear less than 6 months from the start and Parkins fairly recently is mild success at the very least.
