I'd say there is a tad too many categories. Try minimizing them into sub-categories or removing those that are not too popular on the message boards. The clock at the bottom is useless, I think most of us have clocks on our computers. The Icons under "The Street Forums" are too large and can be removed. The scrolling thing on the left hand side is annoying. Theres quite a bit of a gap between the navigation, banner and message boards.
In my opinion the theme you have chosen for your message boards do not really support the Mafia theme. Anyways, good luck on your site, Kevin.
