LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Default DB Central has a new owner/operator

Dear forum members,

After over a decade of being the owner/operator of Dirk Benedict Central.com I have decided to step down and pass the mantle to the very deserving, our own "great wise guru", Lt. Dawg.

John Pickard, who also webmasters for Laurette Spang, has graciously accepted and I know he is the best man to continue to be Dirk's liason to his fans.

I wish John all the very best for DBCentral.com's future

I will be staying on as a regular member and as part of John's support team ( moderator ).

I have had a lot of great times, have learned much, and am so grateful for the opportunity to represent Dirk for over ten years.

I am sure you will all join me in wishing John, Dirk, and the websites' future great success!

Best to all and see ya around the boards!

Tracy
Former Owner/DBC....retired

Awww - thanks for the kind words, Tracy. I'm happy to be able to step up and continue what you've built here. Like the old saying: "The more things change, the more they stay the same," I don't plan on making any significant changes to the site. We will still have the latest Dirk news, still have the great discussions...

Pinar, I'm always open to new ideas, so whenever I talk to our design wizard (and good friend) our website designs are often a topic of conversation. We'll just see what the future holds.

I'm looking forward to this great adventure.

I am
Dawg

Tracy: Thanks for all your hard work here on the Central.

Dawg: I think you are the best in line to try to fill Tracy's footsteps.

I hope the Central will stay alive (it has been a bit quiet here...)

It is a bit quiet here, but it's also summer here in the northern hemisphere and that means people are away from their computers more. I'm sure that as we get closer to fall (and school) we'll see people coming in to tell us how their summer holidays went!

I am

I have no doubt that DBC in is best hands. Thanks for becoming our new 'head cheese', Dawg, and all the best!

And thanks to you, Tracy, for doing such a great work for years. You made DBC the wonderful place it still is - even if it is quiet lately.
