    It looks good, but just for the sake of offering critical feedback I'd like to point out that the blue text that reads "Your #1 San Diego Chargers...." really doesn't stand out well against the lighter blue background. And the LT pic looks kinda squished... the football almost look like a circle.

    Thanks, it is due to all the pushing, complaining, crying and yelling Ray did at me.

    Looks sweet guys. Love the new Banner. We need to get some of those made up by Mini-Camp so we can have them out while we are down there.

    Yeah, the new banner is dope!

    Anyways, I actually have another two cents to throw in. Not a big deal, of course, but the "Recent Posts" and several of the catagories underneath are a little tough on the eyes. Most the titles wrap to two or three lines and unless you put the mouse cursor over 'em it's very difficult to find the breaks between one post and the next. Same goes for Press Releases, SignonSanDiego, etc. It's perfectly easy to read when you put the cursor over the links, but at a glance it's very tough to distinguish one post or story from the next. Perhaps a line break or space between said posts/stories would make it a little easier on the eyes. But, of course, this make the whole thing take up more space, which may or may not create a problem. I dunno... just something I noticed.

    Thanks for the feedback. I made the font size in the sidebars a little smaller. How does it look now?

    Just a thought. How about a mass showing of Bolttalk members at minicamp? Show up early and take over the bleachers at the back.

    It would be better if the "Bolt Talk" stood out more. It is too similar to the blue background.

    It won't bother me at all though, since I never go to the home page. Great job Conc! :tup:
