Interesting to read the other responses, though it seems for the most part we're all on the same page.

Upstate, early on in the Finger Lakes region, but mostly in the Albany area.

Good tactic to get the owner to let you get past the "no promoting" rule...promote the owner!

Yeah the other site response to "rival website" was pretty interesting as well as other teams fans coming on to the site...i kinda like when another team fans comes on to talk smack and their serious discussion takes give good perspective....when it comes to a "rival site" its like whatever...there are no rivals to the WP...we stand alone on top

I think we're the only one of the major Redskins fan sites that hasn't had internal unrest (particularly at the front office level) that led to major departures and renegade fan sites.

We've joked about it of course (April Fools 2006 I believe) but it's actually happened elsewhere

I'm a "Jersey" guy, went to school in the Millburn /Short Hills area and then moved down the shore to the Seagirt/ Springlake area.

Yeah good point. Well expect for Joe Crisp of course. Still wondering what happened with him. I found him on Facebook but I feel odd even just saying hello.
