    Got my 20 year TATF Wings today (self award). Signed up in 2001. After 30 years as a fan. This board was great back then. 

    Levak was the only Mod. He let everything go. TATF was alive and considered the best message board in the league at the time. A real dead zone now.

    Buddy also hooked several of us TATFers up with corporate tours, marketing studies, luncheons with scouts, field passes, you name it.

    Any old schoolers out there remember that era? @SacFalcFan, @gazoo, @capologist. We were a close community. Good times my friends! Time is moving on. Need rest.

     

    Take 8 years off and come back. That seems to have worked for me.

    There are different Falcon eras with different challenges for the Mods in any given era. I don’t think it’s fair to judge the mods as far as what era was the best as other factors played a bigger role in fan temperament.

    There was a little while where the trolls had taken over and sucked all the oxygen out of the air, but that’s been thankfully eradicated.

    These boards were around before social media. so this was the only outlet for a lot of the trolls. There was speculation in the org that social media would eventually make this place obsolete.  Glad that didn't happen.

    I have a question for the old timers, Buddy Curry was defensive rookie of the year in the NFL in 1980 and immediately the leader of the Falcons defense for many years and then right in the middle of his prime his career was over. What happened to him?

    He had some nagging injuries, but just decided to call it quits. It was very low key. He runs a youth charity in Atlanta now.

    Gazoo still hangs out.  He has been a staple for so long its crazy!  I saw him on yesterday I think!  There is still a large core of old timers around.  I took several years off, nearly 5 I think.  After Christmas, I ducked my head in and stuck around.  The boards are not nearly as intense and crazy as they used to be.  The mods are good folk, and the traffic is probably not remotely like it used to be.  Too many places to talk football now.  But, got to say, its a better discussion going on now.  No flame wars and militant trolling like we used to see.  Its good to see you.  Hang out more man, its nice to see old friends.

    I will. This place was a mess during the post-Vick years. I'm actually glad to see that ABF forum is gone too. That was a constant bed of flames.

    Man, it's been forever since I've seen your name. I hardly ever post anymore but lurk regularly. I hope you and yours are well. 

    I'm not sure if you were part of the crew that did the message board get togethers back in the day, but I sure miss those. 

    Those were so great. I still hear from Dan Levak from time to time. His kid is in college now. And I talk to Clowny and Ton80Kid weekly on Facebook.
