Comments: FFToolbox Announcement: Welcome to Scout

Hello FFToolbox Friends,

Ian Ritchie and Scott Atkins here, owners of FFToolbox.com and the World Championships. We're co-writing this in an effort to say everything we want to say to you today as quickly as possible.

As we approach the football and fantasy football season, we have some great news to share with all of you. Our coverage of the hobby you love and the league you love (the NFL) has just gone mainstream. Want to hear from a scout sitting AT the Vikings practice facility to know about your breakout guy, Cordarrelle Patterson? Done. How about the inside word about the Patriots offense? Consider that done too. In a Dynasty league and want to know more about Todd Gurley's fantasy future? We have you covered.

FFTOOLBOX IS NOW PART OF THE SCOUT NETWORK!

Our team now has an embedded scout inside all 32 NFL Teams and embedded scouts for EVERY college football team. We are not kidding!

For years, we've been approached by companies wanting to help expand the vision for Toolbox, and one by one we turned them down. Some were good offers, but we never felt it was the right fit for you, the players. It needed to be the right partnership, and today we can tell you, we are 100% confident this is the right partnership.

Scout has always been much more than recruiting coverage. The Scout Network has long established itself as it's own media network that has combined the Best Collegiate Athletics websites with the Best NFL Team websites and communities, along with a whole lot more. Scout is now building a network that includes the Best Outdoor websites for Fishing, Hunting and even Builder and Military sites.

By adding our team, FFToolbox will be the anchor fantasy site for the all-new ScoutFantasy.com; providing rankings, content, and expert opinion for the entire Scout network, as well as fantasy players everywhere.

What does this mean for us?

To start, our fantasy experts and our cast of professional fantasy players will now have a tremendous mainstream platform to share their knowledge and love for the hobby like never before.

What does this mean for you?

First , everything on the site will be getting a long overdue facelift. We've grown attached to it after all this time, but we know it's time for a new coat of paint around here. Don't worry, all your favorite tools will still be a click away.

Second, we're most known for our rankings and cheat sheets, and they're going to see some major improvements. We've always listened to your feedback and we've compiled a feature improvement list that will blow you away. Dominating your leagues will be much easier this year.

Also, our loyal Toolbox visitors will now have access to the Entire Scout Network, and have the opportunity for Scout Membership, which provides access to Insider Information, Member-Only Forums, Exclusive Videos and a whole lot more. We have some cool things planned for our Member forums, such as Q and A Sessions with the High Stakes Pros in season-long and daily fantasy sports.

If you're trying to research Kyle Rudolph or Jarret Boykin, you can go beyond our fantasy content and go right to their respective team pages at Scout to see the latest discussions from the real insiders for the team.

Are your Content and Rankings still FREE?

ABSOLUTELY. You will still enjoy the same free content on FFToolbox and on Scout Fantasy as you always have, plus free content on literally hundreds of other sites in the network. Your work productivity has just suffered a major blow. Everything we do at FFToolbox just became a whole lot better.

HELPING YOU WIN IN 2014:

Our goal is to give you the best fantasy information and tools, with experienced tips from the pros and the inside knowledge from the scouts. When the best fantasy players in the world are giving YOU the "start 'em sit 'em" information you need to make your playoffs in week 13, you will not only see the expertise we can provide but you will know you have access to inside knowledge your league mates do not have.

For years, several of us here would text or call high stakes pros we knew when we needed that shot in the arm on Sunday morning. The light bulb finally came on in December 2012 when the decision was either Reggie Bush or Stevan Ridley for all the marbles. The pro we called said definitively, "Start Bush", flying in the face of many of the so called "expert" sites that had Ridley higher that week.

REGGIE RUMBLED for 100+ yards and 3 Touchdowns en route to a 28 point day.

We knew then that we should share this advice with the world. When the best players in the world give you their 2014 bust players, breakout players, comeback players and deep sleepers, you will start to understand the DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REAL EXPERTS AND CELEBRITY JOURNALISTS that have never won anything on a national level. Our players win every year which is why they're ranked the best in the world.

What is Scout Membership?

Scout Membership is all about Expert Access. You want the best info out there and you don't want your competition to have it.

For NFL fans, 32 NFL Teams, just one membership.

Like college football? You'll get access to Members-Only Forums, Insider Information, Recruiting Coverage and Exclusive Videos, just one membership.

Want access to the #1 Player in the World, Chad Schroeder? He'll give you his Sleeper, Bust, Breakout and Comeback Players to arm you for your big draft. So will the rest of the high stakes pros, yep you guessed it, just one membership.

Over these next few months, we will be releasing MEMBER ONLY content including the return of Pre-Season Pro and an all-new advanced statistics engine providing incredibly useful stats we've never had access to before!

Very soon, we will be offering an introductory Scout Membership to our FFtoolbox community that will give you 3 months for only $7.95. That's 3 months for the price of 1.

This will give you access to all Member content across the entire network including everything we release at SCOUT FANTASY which will cover you through the start of the regular season.

We could go on all day, but we'll let you get back to what you were doing. Thank you for all your years of support. We're so excited about this next step in the journey for all of us. So head on over to the brand new forums and join the fastest growing sports network on the internet!

Welcome to Scout.

Scott & Ian

Hi, just want to point out that the new scout banner is terrible, and I am having a problem finding all of the old functionality that made me love this site. The integration with fftoolbox login is clunky and confusing. You really should have waited until the redesign was complete rather than implementing this frankenstein patch-job....

I would also add that it is disappointing to see the site go downhill and at the same time be expected to pay for it. There are just to many free sites to even bother coming here anymore. Scout has ruined this for a few of us who came faithfully for years.
