    I inquired about this long time ago. I wanted to know who were the first "Adam" and "Eve" of this forum. What were the creators doing before and what are their backgrounds? Hard to believe it but I know almost nothing about sherdog except that he is the evil twin of Tank. He said there was going to be an article on the site soon on some magazine but haven't seen it yet.

    Dave Hojak and Tanner Rhoden have been on the board for quite a while before Jeff and Garret asked them, in december 2001, to lead the new forum. They took up the challange which eventually leaded to the succes of Sherdog.net!

    Everyone know that I'm the proverbial glue that holds this forum together.

    Any way of finding out if the writer Marc-Andre Drolet is from Canada, in specific Manitoba? I went to school with a guy with the exact name. Probably a coincidence, but hey, who knows.

    Thanks rtbrouwer for the explanation. Any plans of opening a Sherdog Amusement Park in the future? :) Damn, I didn't know there were that many people involved in the site. Some of them probably have never met each other face to face. The web is indeed amazing. Everybody has done a wonderful job.

    Sherdogs started off as an old suit case, $50, a bottle of Vodka, and a dream.
