I know this board isn't well read, but I need to vent.  Since track started having seasons available for coaches to post schedules, results, and rosters, there has always been a simple text box attached to dual meets where coaches could enter their comments about a given dual.  Since track asks for your media contacts and sends them the dual results, this was a hugely useful feature so that you could e-mail the media your quotes or thoughts at the same time that you were entering the results of the dual.

This year for the first time, this feature is gone.  I submitted a ticket to trackwrestling, and got "This feature is no longer supported.  We are very sorry for the inconvenience." 

Look, I'm not a computer programmer, but I don't see how a text box is a feature that they can't be bothered to support anymore.  I know not every coach puts his results on track... which only makes it harder for fans to follow the sport.  Now with this feature gone, it really doesn't save as much time to use track, since you have to contact the media again to send your thoughts or quotes.  I would hate to see track become just for the big tournaments with so much interest in them already that they can sell trackcast matches.  Please don't forget about the small guys and the overall mission - to help connect the wrestling community with the results of matches.  Pushing coaches further away is bad business and bad for wrestling.
