Brand New Layout And Features

Mr. CleanMr. Clean has taken over While he will not be giving me any money, he has swept away the old layout and brought in a brand new look to this site. I hope you enjoy the visual changes and difference in content.

The sidebar now contains an MVQ (Most Valuable Quote), which will be updated periodically. All former MVQs will be listed on a page that may be found on the menu bar located under the header. The right sidebar no longer contains any annoying tabs. What you see is what you get. Each post will have a listing of similar articles at the top right of the page.

If you want to find the most recent posts and most recent comments, you may do so by clicking on the tabs next to the Headline article on the index page. We encourage you to sign up as a user. In order to comment, you must now be signed in to our database. Future features may only be viewable by registered users. There is no charge and it takes a second to accomplish. In addition, the new layout will not always display the most recent posts on the index page (unless you decide to click the Recent Posts tab). Stay up to date with all the latest stories by subscribing through RSS or subscribing via email.

Interviews With the Agent are now extremely simple to view. The menu bar under the header has a nice drop down of all of our past interviews. Easy access and professional style is key to the new design.

How about those sports agencies? No longer are you limited to only viewing them by state. Two new categories have been added. You may now find a sports agency by type of sport(s) and by alphabetical listing.

Enjoy the new, and make sure to check out tomorrow’s interview with BJ Armstrong.
