Golden Nuggets: Welcome To The New Guys

I'm taking over the Nuggets for the next few days while James enjoys a bit of a vacation. Since I didn't formally do it before, I thought I'd use this initial Nuggets intro to provide a quick introduction of our new writers, and also an explanation as to why I chose the people I chose. Our three new writers are D.DeSimone, WesHanson and DerekRE_3.

Of the three new writers, Wes is the only one with any sort of extensive posting history here at NN, with 600+ comments before his first front page post. I decided to go with newer members in part because I thought they could bring a bit of an "outside" perspective. They're just as strong 49ers fans as the rest of us, but they're new enough to NN that they haven't quite seen all the inside jokes or become ingrained to the existing writing style. Consider it a chance to try something new. Welcome, and on to the links!
