Isn't that the site with the "funky bunch" dancers as mods?

With respect to the OP, nothing good will come of this thread. If people get their jollies from bashing other Redskins boards, then so be it. I personally don't see the point and I think there are better things right now to talk about.
It was all of them, and they also printed compromising pictures of SGC and tax records linking Matty and this site to the Russian Mafia. Ooh, I just hate those guys.

I think overall he does a good job of capturing the mood and sentiments of most of the fans, depending on whatever situation the Redskins are in at the time. I actually like the fact that the organization chooses to showcase his work. However, I could see those that have a dissenting opinion taking issue that he speaks for everyone or for the organization.

I think most people realize that the opinions Mark expresses are not endorsed by the team, but it might be to their benefit to include a disclaimer in his articles.
in the military, you're not really allowed to comment on anything in uniform, because, even though you're an individual with a right to your own views, being in uniform makes it too easy to confuse personal views with those of the military itself... they're generally pretty strick on that too.

same thing. an article linked to by the redskins or posted on redskins.com is much easier to confuse as team gospel.


and ES is the reason we no longer have camp access... while they were busy bragging about being the first website to have press passes to training camp, we'd already had a guy doing it for two years... and they're the reason we don't now.

they don't seem reasonable (again, for the most part) and luckily they don't come here often. they tend to be a lot more courteous here than on ES though. Om's probably one of the better ones, but it's stupid that he's allowed to insult whoever and can't take it in return, or that he feels a need to undermine legitimate conversations for no good reason.

and it's REALLY hard to argue that those guys AREN'T bought sitting in the press box and getting free trips to every game. If they didn't want the heat for that, they shouldn't have signed the deal.

And how. Although, I don't suspect the mods here would behave differently if they were lounging around the team hotel the night before the game. I KNOW I wouldn't. I'd be defending Snyder like Perry Mason on crystal meth.

nope. that's http://hailredskins.com.

As far as being the OP, my intent was to show what was written and to see what others thought. I find it amusing that both the writer and the ES mod would stoop to such childish nonsense on a blog merely to see who's unit is bigger.

Re: Washington City Paper article on "The Redskins official fan message board"

Can somebody tell me why that guy Shadowplay was banned in the first place (the 1 week ban -- not the perm ban)? Was it because he attacked another poster? If so, was Om banned for a week as well?

Then, he was banned permanently for something he said in an email to Om? That seems kinda strange to me. Are there forum rules about what you can say to the mods in private? What if you saw them on the street and didn't hold the door for them? Would that deserve a ban? Seems to me like there should be a distinction between real-life and the message board.

@hess: You were the first person I thought of when I read about that Om guy again. LOL.

They take things personally cause they have alterior motives to protect. You can't insult the owner of their site and the person that gives them benefits and expect those benefits to keep rolling in.

People here complain about the mods, but fact is, even though they are human, they allow for people to express their opinions without repercussions. All you have to do is pretty much not insult others, or be rude beyond belief. They have even allowed people to rant and chaulked it up to emotion. Not saying they are perfect, but I have been around, and they have the most patience I have seen.
