    Do we have the ignore feature here?

    It's not negative if it's the truth. You just can't handle the truth.

    Wouldn't it be better to be a spelling and grammar guy if you're going to write a book? I guess being able to number the pages correctly is required, but, the actual writing may need spelling and grammar.

    The information makes the book. I can have anyone edit it and make it perfectly readable. I can spell. I just can't type. Its all about the information.

    As the author of one of the great threads of all time on the other board (around 25,000 views before they locked it) I can tell you a thing or two. When it got boring, no one paid attention. Controversy is what brought in the fans. As others have pointed out, the nuts and bolts don't sell very well. To really make any money it's gotta have some obvious take-aways like sensational material, great photos, or a compelling storyline. You also have to have a lot of publicity. Could you get Ben to co-author with you? Maybe you could link it to Princess Diana. Sorry, just brainstorming publicity ideas. Oh, and here's my favorite, you could include a poetry contest.

    I don't know how legal it is...but implicating refs in gambling scandels (with evidence) would sell books.

    Hey, who needs evidence? Salacious rumors are GREAT for selling books.
