I just wish he put more effort in the Mavs these days.
Good storyteller but focuses on Cowboys. Good communicator as well.
I also still read his donuts. And sure enough would I love to have him posting here. This is a place for all Mavs fans. It's an oldsql format I like and that's missing from modern social media or blogging platforms.
The thing with news sadly is that you get them mostly elsewhere as well.
So if you do not put in much effort writing original investigative articles it's a hard selling point.
His and his staffs interaction with the community were what made this place unique. It was a USP.
It's sad this is separate now but it is what it is. Maybe qabic.sports will be a major Mavs source in future who knows.
Mavsmoneyball was also a better place with Tim Cato.

That Haley article brings back memories of the Fish that I used to read in the Startle-O-Gram and listen to on KLIF.
Like iolide above, I stumbled upon dallasbasketball.com back in 2007. I was starved for Mavs coverage, having recently moved out of state, and saw somebody talking about Fish's Daily Donuts on Myspace (!)
I started reading his Donuts, and then started reading the forums. Back in the day, the site was as others have said, a 'one stop shop' for all things Mavs related. The articles were good, the forums were rowdy, and it became one of my favorite places to waste time online.
I agree with iolide. When Fish started concentrating more on Cowboys coverage, the Mavs content suffered. Post 2013, between the decrease in the quality of the Mavs content and the decrease in the Mavs success on the court, I didn't spend as much time there, but I still visited a few times a week.
I wish Fish the best, but I think his Mavs content will slowly dwindle away due to the reduced quality, and more importantly, the loss of this community. It was the community that kept me coming back a few times a week, after the quality and quantity of the Mavs coverage declined.
I visited Maven quite a bit at first, but I don't much anymore. It's just not the same as it used to be, and the interface is horrible.
Site is rising the ranks, almost on the first page when looking for a Mavs forum using duckduckgo

I once posted a thread about losing my wallet; i don't know if anyone remembers that thread lol.
But yeah, i am glad for this board as well as us as Fans just want somewhere to talk over the games, players, news, etc. I think we have the right people here on board to continue with that. Awesome board MFFLs.
Yea, I've been wondering if you ever found that wallet.
How can we cultivate our own "insiders".
Or at least our own podcast.

To cultivate our own insiders from scratch we probably need for one of us to have some journalism chops, get credentialed, build relationships with players, coaches and front office folk, and then give us content for free.
We probably more eqipped to produce blogger type content. There is a lot of amateurish level stuff out there posing as content so we could probably at least do better than some.

Sounds good. Mavsluvr, you're our targeted insider, what say you? However, it means you have to go to games and behind the scenes interviews with the name mavsluvr, no real names from us!
