Wow. Matty's gone mainstream.

Good read. I agree completely.

Re: Redskins Insider: Guest Blog - Message Board Equity?

Let me start by saying I enjoy this site very much and I think it is well done.

But, to think Dan Synder gives a rat's ass about this site you will find yourself sadly mistaken.

He doesn't even care about season ticket holders why would he care about this web site that doesn't even generate revenue dollars for him.

I have no expectations regarding Snyder acting on this, believe me.

However, it doesn't mean we shouldn't voice our opinion on the issue though.

Sorry but you are wrong about that. We help to promote the team, and with our Warpath Shop we certainly do generate revenue for him.

Re: Redskins Insider: Guest Blog - Message Board Equity?

This site is BY FAR the best Redskins board on the web today. While it may not have all the flashy glitter and signatures it does have the best content and discussion about our beloved Skins. All this in one package including for FREE, the CAP SHEETS which have also been used by outside sources in their works.

Kudos to Matty for taking this issue mainstream and kudos to JLC for posting it up on his blog!

Hell, I bet even Lenny P shows up here from time to time to check out the content!

Re: Redskins Insider: Guest Blog - Message Board Equity?

Matt,

I thought some of the comments were unfair to you at Redskins Insider, though that's hardly unexpected. It takes a lot more courage to throw your words out for criticism than it does to take others' work to task.

It is an interesting point that I hope is noticed (though remain skeptical on that) by the team. The existence, prominence, and growing popularity of ES and Warpath and countless other sites is evidence that fans crave more access as opposed to less. It would be beneficial to the average Redskins fan if more competent and thoughtful persons had access to the league. Competition among writers (with access) allows for more choice by consumers -- readers -- and everyone benefits. Best of luck to you in this endeavor and keep up the great work here at Warpath.

Cheers.

Re: Redskins Insider: Guest Blog - Message Board Equity?

Okay, I admit it. All these years I have been masking my identity. I am, in reality, Daniel Snyder. Simultaneous with this e-mail I have purchased the servers routing traffic for this board.

Resistance is futile.

Re: Redskins Insider: Guest Blog - Message Board Equity?

Questions regarding the lockout fan sites, what does it take for a blogger or a message board with a decent readership to be able to obtain press credentials? Can a small town newspaper get press credentials and why? Basically, what does it take to qualify for press credentials?

I'm no lawyer but It seems to me what the Redskins are doing is discriminatory.

Re: Redskins Insider: Guest Blog - Message Board Equity?

Good points Matty, nice article. It would be a real goodwill-creating statement on the part of the Redskins' management to open the door to all fan sites for media credentials.

To have only the Redskins.com Extremeskins site there, they know they control what is being said about the team, and may think they are controlling their image. But it ends up costing them big time in image points when you compare with the pro-fan spirit of the Miami Dolphins' management.

Re: Redskins Insider: Guest Blog - Message Board Equity?

On behalf of theHogs.net, I just want to say thanks for speaking up on behalf of of all fan sites. Sure, this topic gets thrown about on the boards, but to take it to the WP puts it in a light that, while it probably won't change anything, will at least let them know that we are here and that's not going to change, no matter how much the FO tries to strangle out the competition.
