Yesterday we finally got our new odds pages online. There is still some formatting work to do and they still need to be integrated to the menus but they are close enough to being how I want them that I didn't want to wait to share them with everyone. More features and more books will be added in the coming months but these new pages are a 1000% improvement over the current ones especially for those of you who view the site on phones and tablets. If you have any feedback feel free to post it here or email us using the contact button at the top of the page.
Thanks boss. It's been quite a journey for sure and these are far from the finished product, lots more features still to come but as a jumping off point I'm pretty happy with them at the moment and felt there was no reason to keep them hidden any longer.
In case anyone still likes the old odds (although I don't know why you would) don't worry, they won't be going away but they will be replaced on the menu sometime next week probably so bookmark the old pages soon.
Thanks Tim, I appreciate it. But the reality is that there is a lot of work to be done around here. So much of our traffic is coming from phones and tablets now that a lot of things need to be updated to be able to keep those visitors. The odds are just one component of that. I definitely want to add some more features to the odds feeds but we also need to move on to renovate the expanded matchup reports. Those are a mess on phones and tablets and we pay a lot of money for the data that powers them.
It's a lot of work but luckily I have some good people you guys don't know behind the scenes that can tackle these challenges for us.
I appreciate the kind words but what I appreciate more if that all you guys keep supporting our advertisers. My accountant tells me at least twice a month I need to start charging people to access the site and I've told him no for the last 10 years. Ad money is the only thing that keeps all this free for you guys. It pays for tech, it pays for labor, it pays for emergencies so if you love the site and want to see it last another 17 years click a banner and buy something once in a while. That will keep them coming back and allow me to keep everything free and keep making improvements.
I'm sure everyone thinks I'm some multi-millionaire sitting over here in a pool full of gold coins but that's not the case at all. I'm just like you guys for the most part and every penny I get I don't need for my mortgage or my kids health insurance goes right back into this site.
