    Fun read. Thanks for posting.

    When did Jones start writing for ESPN?

    Chris Jones. Does he still post here?

    If he's now with ESPN, doubtful as they put a ban on writers posting on
    social media sites.

    That explains a couple of the departures from here in the last year or so... I knew it was frowned upon, I didn't know it was banned. I definitely did not know it had been banned for five years.

    The ESPN rule has caused the board to lose several of its most respected members/posters. The place just isn't the same without them: jgmacg, Fenian, Double Down, typefitter, sxy.

    Etcetera.

    Wow, I never heard that. So, why am I following so many ESPN folks on Twitter?

    And does that apply to Facebook? ESPN doesn't allow its employees to post pictures of their kids' birthday party?
