And the business argument for it is simple: more eyeballs during high traffic times = more ad revenue. Hopefully that would offset or at least mitigate any increased hosting costs. Without knowing the whole infrastructure we’re just guessing at solutions, but I agree with other posts that Drupal is likely a main culprit. I just hope the post for a dev. was answered and they get a workable solution implemented.
And while we’re making wish lists: responsive site redesign, por favor.

Top player on my board, purely from a name perspective. Can't wait to see that jersey.

I kind of hate comments that reference vague financial issues as motivators. While that may very well be the case, it’s not mentioned anywhere in his statement. Maybe that’s made clearer on paywalled sites, but it’s by no means public knowledge and seems like needless speculation. Just the facts, ma’am.

Posted too soon. Since it's db dependent it might be hard to scale across multiple servers. The lesson here is probably to get off Drupal or throw some advanced caching/CDN in front of everything.

Trust me the load issues are not this "bandwidth" thing you speak of. I promise if they could just throw money at the issue to keep the site up in periods of high load they would. Some issues are not easy to solve by just increasing capacity. Agreed that more investment in the site tech would be nice, but I'm just not sure the business case is there.

Yeah, I was surprised to see that bullet in the recap. I actually thought Huard’s commentary was generally insightful. Of course they’re going to go over the edge on some stuff, but nothing struck me a terrible. Don’t have much of an opinion on the PBP guy, but that’s a win in my announcing book.

According to Butt, the pass play one was actually drawn up for Drake to be open. You can see him raise his hand, but it's not really there.

Agreed. Seems like a lot of sour grapes on here. I wonder if the split is generational.
