Though that doesn't excuse Janitor entirely.

I will put the coloured heavyweight title thread up again.

The couloured heavyweight thread is back up and running. It is now up to the moderators to make it a sticky. Sorry it has taken so long I have been busy.

I think that the Harry Greb comic avatar is prety cool but if people prefer the Joe Louis crime fighting one I am flexible.
