I joined Mets Paradise early in 2013 when the CBS Community was shut down. CBS was a goliath in sports with lateral access to all 30 teams and although the Mets board was the most active every board had it's well versed fans.
I know because I ran MLB wide polls posing the same questions across the spectrum and then reporting back the results. I even became accepted on the Phillies board as opposed as being regarded as a troll.
I also was an active participant in a trading game in which each player had to select a Plus team to build into a winner and a minus team that had to rebuild. This was also spectrum wide and built a trust across all 30 teams members.
I also wrote a blog with 600+ followers.
When CBS shut down that aspect of their empire I remained in contact with a number of my fellow Mets posters including FANG and thomasam, who joined me in joining MP....all though I dipped my toes in the MSG and Pro Sports Daily waters for a period. Two other CBS contacts now play in my CBS league.
I stayed with MP because while smaller than CBS the knowledge level of the members Saxon, mjjm, brian, West Coast, MFO was challenging. Today with the addition of Canadian Mets Fan, jeff, Thor and NYMets5 Mets Paradise is Better Than Ever
