On the Rivals news, from Vital Man City:

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.’

If you are or were a publisher on Rivals and you want to bring your site over to Vital, please contact me on the following link: jonathan@vitalfootball.co.uk
