Re: sports template
Looks very good. I like the sports theme and especially the way you executed it in a simple but memorable manner. This approach perfectly matches the “simple but elegant” slogan of bbPress.
I am not as good as you are at coming up with a nice looking theme (plus mine is a business site, so slightly more serious topic), so I just modified the standard header and colors a bit. But I still like my new bbPress forum much better than my former YABB forum system. YABB was somewhat slow for me, but the biggest problem was that it was nearly ignored by every search engine. On the other hand, my WordPress blog is very well indexed by the main search engines and I am hoping that bbPress will have the same results.
