Following the shock news that Rivals.net has closed (more below) Vital Derby would like to extend the invitation for former Editors and members of Rivals to join us here on Vital Derby.
"One of the founder fans football forum and news networks, Rivals has closed down.
Once upon a time Rivals was head and shoulders above any fans independent Internet site out there, however the decline began in 2007 when BSkyB bought the company.
Many Rivals publishers began to leave the Network when, and after no consultation what-so-ever the company decided to launch a long overdue overhaul. In essence and from launch date virtually nothing worked and to top it all, the forums looked bloody awful.
I know Trevor Kramer (Rivals boss) was in an impossible position, but still he fought the editors / publishers corner.
The following is a direct quote from Sky dated 01/07/09...
'Following the closure in hosting all the relevant websites, and a review of www.rivals.net it has been decided to close the Rivals websites as of the date of this letter.'"
This is what the Editor said on Vital Manchester City.
Vital Derby needs some help, and as much as it's sad to see the closure of Rivals.net if anyone from the Derby side of things wants to join us at Vital Derby contact me on email@example.com.
