I was pointed to an interesting update on the Goon situation by a corpmate:
It looks like either the Goons end comes via a of a taste of their own medicine, or a series of serious blunders have lead to collapse and PR damage control. Either way nothing could be a more fitting end for Goonswarm. I know they will return in a new form, just like BOB did, but not without some goon-tears along the way. With the changes in Dominion making the large power blocks so vunerable, this year promises to be full of unrest in 0.0 politics.
It is more than a little poetic that Goonfleet will end alongside Band Of Brothers. These two names have left their marks across the history of EvE and probably won't return as the powers they once were, but they have ended with Hollywood style.
