We didn't tell all that many people. Just a couple really, Malcolm, Schneed and a couple of others who were going to join in on the hoax in the evening. There wasn't anyone who we told that wouldn't go along with it.

Re: Fools Gold

Great job guys. If I may, I'd like to throw out an idea for next year. Let's craft some elaborate 20+ hour ruse to make the little kid who lives down the street from me think mommy & daddy were killed in some horrific car wreck. We will then vehemently deny it all when he questions the coincidence of it all, even getting his aunt's & uncle's help add to the authenticity. Then, when the clock strikes 12 we will pull back the curtain of deception we've thrown over this poor sap, for all to see...

I enjoy a good joke just as much as everyone else (perhaps even more), but I don't honestly see how this idea got passed around between at least 10 people or so without someone bringing up the fact that "hey, if people get pissed off to the point of even thinking about leaving the forum, we should probably come clean..." The fact that after 12thMan left (I don't think he was in on it) & others brought up the possibility of leaving (myself included), you continued this charade for another 8 hours is clear evidence that whoever was involved in this thing needs to pull their heads out of their asses.

All I can say is when considering the next April Fool's / conspiracy / whatever crap, ask if it could result in even one member leaving. If so, then maybe that should be a sign to back it off a bit.

Look at how PFT handled their April Fool's stuff: Hilarious, but very evident it was a joke. If that wasn't already known, they have a note at the bottom of the page. Total time of joke: 10 minutes & I'd bet money they didn't lose any readers over it. I know some have already left & while I'm sure I'll still visit now & then, for the most part I'm going to be checking out other sites. Most of the people here are very cool, keep it up.

Re: Fools Gold

A Lie is a LIE. Not a joke.

I'm very disappointed at the mod and owners if this was a joke. As a member that posts here I was insulted several times by these so called defectors.


If are going to LIE about something so important and trusted when should expect you not to be lying.

Jot me down as one of the pissed off members over this.

Thanks for the props. At first I wasn't part of the whole thing but I got brought into it mid-morning yesterday.

To anyone that got upset by this farce, I'd like to say I'm sorry that it upset you so. I was a willing participant in what I perceived as a pretty funny April Fool's joke, definitely did not want to scare, anger, or disappoint anyone.

That Guy and everyone else, my derogatory comments directed at CrazyCanuck were all part of the joke. Since I couldn't play like I knew about the mods' dispute between one another, I took the angle of creating a fight between the Warpath's salary cap guru and me, the supposed salary cap guru of this new site being created by the defectors. CC knows, I have nothing but respect for him and absolutely love the work he does. Before I came to the Warpath a year ago, I searched far and wide on the internet, and nobody ANYWHERE keeps the Redskins cap numbers so completely and comprehensively as he does. I just thought it would be funny, and make it more believable, if I started taking a few shots at him as a defector.

Anyway, I'd like to comment real quick. I think the mods thought an April Fool's joke would work well around here because we all have such a good sense of fellowship. We joke around and get along great around here, and I think the mods thought this would be yet another way to have fun. In the end, the angry reactions just show how passionate people are about this forum, and how much they care about it. It shows just how great you think this forum is.

I think the joke was started because the mods viewed this as a tremendous community, one where we could feel free to joke around with each other. And if you got upset at the joke, that's only because you genuinely care about being here at the Warpath. That's a good thing. So lets all keep it together. I think anyone that may have left is going to eventually come back to see if this was a hoax, and when they do, they'll be relieved. Sorry if you got upset, I don't want any of you to leave. I love this place and everything about it, and I think a lot of you do too.

I still think we should add the naked cheerleaders picture section.
