That sucks, Matty, but this site could look like your basic Notepad app and it would still be considered the best Redskin's discussion board on the Web.

I just want to commend Matty for keeping his head above water these past few days and leading us through all these changes. I know it's been stressful.

We'll be as strong as we've ever been.

Should we start searching for this site daily to help boost thewarpath.net

Re: Important site news please read

I allways did the thewarpath.org and it says "forbidden" for the last couple of days.

It does really suck but I guess what can you do. Also Ive allways wanted to say thanks for hosting the site and putting togather the best fan site I know of.

Maybe one day these sites will end up over seas like kazaa and stuff. Really sucks. And if helps ill start finding my way here through search engines too. Any particular key words? "Redskins forum"?

Like you are such a threat to the NFL. Don't they have better things to do then pick on the little people? You even advertise merchandise for the fans to buy. What a thanks you get!!!

This is beyond belief, if it was a month earlier I would be thinking what a poor April Fool's joke.

So no site can use the term "Redskins" in their title or use official logos without the express written consent of the NFL blah blah blah.

Ludicrous.

No worries. The strength of this forum is the intelligent fan base we have and the thoughtful discussions that take place here. That sure as hell won't change. It may be tougher to gain visibility around the internet, but the membership will stay strong and the site will keep growing.

Way to battle through it, keep fighting your guts out, Matty!

Re: Important site news please read

can you get the express written consent to use their logos in some situations, or would they require you to pay for them?

Re: Important site news please read

I think we need to focus on what's important here.

Can we still broadcast major league baseball with implied oral consent as opposed to expressed written consent?

Re: Important site news please read

This is crazy.

I don't think the NFL has any right to the redskinswarpath.com domain. It's yours. They may not like you using it "for profit" (I know, profit - funny, right?), but that doesn't mean that they have a legal right to overtake it. It can point to nothing, if they want. I'd recommend that you check on your other domain names and get them re-registered ASAP - protect yourself from the league trying to pull any future funny business.

Did they say that we could still mention players' names? Or do we have to come up with codes? Probably couldn't use jersey numbers; they'd get wise to that.

For what it's worth, I have no doubt that this comes directly from the Redskins organization. The league may be the ones executing the plan, but I have to believe that it began in Ashburn.

That's a great sig!

Anyway, we don't who the request came from. Might have been the Redskins, might have been the NFL

Either way, it's been handled cordially and professionally. And all we can do now is move forward. So let's try to take the high road here.

I don't believe I could ever post on a <name removed for fear of copyright violation) fan site if this one was to be shut down. For one thing, ES's color scheme hurts my eyes, and there are just waay too many idi........ well, I just like this place better and let's leave it at that.
