Thank you Bobby, You're on God's Team Now! RIP

What a terrible loss to the Murcer, Yankee and MLB Families.  As a kid playing Little League, all my friends wanted to be Mickey Mantle. I wanted to be Bobby Murcer.  He was always playing hard on the field and smiling off of it.  In 1979, the summer I graduated from High school Thurman Munson died in a plane crash.  Bobby gave the eulogy for his friend the day of the funeral and that night, the Yankees played the Orioles and Bobby drove in all 5 runs in a 5-4 win.  For years, Bobby has worked as a broadcaster for YES network and my favorite days have been the Old Timers Day games where Bobby in uniform goes out on the field miked up, and made the ceremonies the most entertaining I've ever seen. 

A great player and even greater person, my prayers are with his family.

I am not posting this to be a jerk but almost as a "Customer Service" assist to CBS.   The last couple of weeks I've seen or encountered numerous problems with the site.   I thought maybe it was my computer at home, but,  the same things are happening with a different laptop and with my desktop at work. 

Here's my list, please add to it:

1.  Error messages- Getting them on both posts and fantasy baseball and football while trying to navigate teams.

2.  Try to submit a post, get an error message and then find the post posted 3-4 times.  Each post a little longer than the previous one.

3.  Site just "Kicks" me out and I have to log in again.

4.  Disappearing posts.  I had a post last week that posted, got scored a 93 and when I went to look for it, it was listed on my messages board but didn't exist on the thread, and the message I got back said there was no message with that number.

5.  Ratings- Haven't gone up or down in weeks.  I see some members getting changes, I haven't seen any.

6.  SLOWWWW!  The site is moving terribly slow.

I don't know if it's a server issue or if it's happening at high volume times.

Steroids-What is the real issue????

Reading the blogs and threads it's hard for someone to understand why roids are so bad.   People not so knowledgeable say "Cause they cheated" and let it go at that.  I had some pretty bad experiences with kids and some adults who were doing steroids when I was a cop.  "Roid Rage" is real!  Alot of kids who were football players and wrestlers in high school started taking them and working out.  Since they didn't know what they were doing, alot of them ended up addicted to some other drug because of the pain caused by ripping their muscles so much.  One kid had a full wrestling scholarship to college, blew it because before wrestling season started shooting heroin and killed himself by shooting up with lysol toilet bowl cleaner and hanging himself from a tree.

Just some thoughts, especially after the physical problems Giambi had when he stopped taking them 2 years ago.
