Gray Boxes?

Just curious, I see the Darius Slade commitment is no longer a gray box. Will new important articles like commitments no longer have a gray box? If so, I felt like that was one of things that gave this site its identity. Just my $.02

I certainly hope so, how am I supposed to know if something is important otherwise?

Perhaps the term could be included in the headline?

For example:

Gray Box of Joy: Jamarco Jones Remains a Buckeye

On the converse:

Gray Box of Doom: Tatgate

Maybe against this new background they should be Scarlet Boxes going forward.

We could also just make them... a little bit darker gray boxes?

Oh really, Woodhouse? Or is one black, and one a slightly darker black?

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

That might be the best show on TV.

I guess it's just something we will get used to, although that is kind of disappointing

As in many things, I'm not a great fan of change, but have learned to wait and watch, etc. before reaching conclusions. In addition, I don't think we should be slaves to routine/tradition. However, not all tradition is bad, and some forms our identity. Not to set Gray boxes on a pedestal, but it is a term synonymous with 11W. Keep the GRAY BOX!!

Gray boxes = legit.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

I already miss it, and I can't wait for the gray box stating that the gray box is officially back!
