Hey guys, as you may or may not have realised by now, I haven't been spending any time on this site anymore, and I've decided I'm not going to in the future. Thanks for trusting me with mod privileges the last few seasons. I've met some great friends in real life through these pages, which was the last thing I would have expected 10 years ago (I mean, c'mon... internet friends??) so I'll always be grateful to the OG's of this forum in creating and running it all these years. Sharing our first premiership through these pages is also the best thing ever as a fanatical Cows fan. Best of luck to you all in the future, and this page will be in my mind when we take out the title this year.

Thanks for the good times. Cheers :happy:

We'll always have Round 11, 2015 ;)

We've lost another one.

Good luck for the future C4L. Thank you for putting up with us.

The Stampede will always be around as long as people post here. The amount of long term members that have left recently is quite alarming though. Beaves is another and IanC was talking about leaving as well. Not good.

This place has been around for a long time.. I've been posting here since I was a teenager. It's been so long I find it hard to imagine being a Cowboys fan and not having the Stampede to vent on after a loss it celebrate after a win.

This place isn’t what it used to be and a few of us don’t want what it has become. It’s as simple as that.

Well I honestly don't know what to do to make it better. People complain about members so we ban them and next minute the place is dead for weeks.

We've had a couple of lean seasons so hopefully a bit of success on field can result in an influx of new members.

2018 was a tough season for many of our fans. From pre-season premiership favourites to narrowly avoiding a wooden spoon. Watching some of our greatest ever age a few years in an offseason. Watching some of our best leaders argue with referees in total frustration etc. Having the league's most promising junior in Coen Hess turn into a player we now have serious questions about. Then watching this all happen all over again in 2019 without the ability to attribute it to JT and Thumper (who sadly copped a lot of blame in 2018). A lot of that regrettably spilled over to the Forum here.

Fortunately for us, we might be slowly turning a corner, and get back to playing some good footy. Not winning premierships but very competitive. Oh, and there's a silver lining... we aren't the Broncos right now lol

Hopefully we start winning regularly, and all the old timers start returning back in mass numbers. I am excited about the prospect of getting Hamiso, Gilbert and some other good young players into our season over the next 1-3 years.

From memory, he was banned, then rejoined and was quickly identified and either rage quit or banned again.
