I found this article. It's pretty old, but it shows the league has been doing this kind of stuff for a while.

The Big Picture: NFL crackdown on Web sites aggravates Steelers fan

I found an interesting quote in this article...

Quote:
''To the extent that it's purely a non-commercial site devoted to commentary about the team, we're supportive and happy that fans are excited about our sport,'' says Paula Guibault, NFL senior counsel. ''It's not an issue for us.''

Jeez, the No Fun League must have a lot of time on it's hands in the off season - haven't they got better things to do, like take care of retired players? The changes shouldn't be such a big deal in and of themselves but it is the principle of this action that really stinks.

The giant corporate monopoly flexes it's considerable might to pick a fight with the little guys.

NFL = No F#cking Loins.

The NFL is shooting itself in the foot with this policy. Don't the NFL realize that sites like this stimulates interest in the teams and the league. We are more likely to be season ticket holders and purchase licensed merchandise. This is stupid.

As much money as the fans spend each year on the team this is crazy. Makes you now want to spend less money.

What about other companies that use part of the team name....like say......"The Washington Post." LOL. "The Washington Times." LOL. I know I know I'm going overboard but it would be nice to see someone stick it to the Post. LOL.

I wonder if you can call the site the "Washington Warpath" this way anyone who googles will find anything related to Washington which would include "The Warpath"?

Re: Important site news please read

I want to change the name of the forum to the "Ultimate Redskins Coca-Cola and Pepsi Forum for Redskin Fans that Eat Frito Lays and Trade Stocks on E-Bay so one day they can drive BMW's if they don't already, in which case they can get a Honda Warpath"

I remember my marketing teacher telling me that one time a kid working at KFC got sued by Pepsi because when an "undercover" person working for Pepsi ordered a Coke the kid didn't correct him.

Re: Important site news please read

This is ridiculous. I don't see a reason for the NFL, Redskins, or anyone else to say that this site would/could be a detriment to either of the two. It's stupid to me that they would look at the NFL's whole world, all of the things that are wrong with it and pick out fan sites. Fan sites ? A bunch of men, women, boys, and girls who MUST be fans. Pretty dedicated fans I'd say. Either I'm reading something here or I'm posting. Mostly reading but the feelings that fans have for this game and this team resonated throughout this site. Extremeskins, to their credit are I guess you can say the "official" site but so what ? There can be only one ? What the hell is this freaking Highlander ?

The site will be fine. It's a blower because there are so many hoops that Matty will have to jump through just so we can have a place such as this to talk about the NFL, the Redskins, Grand Theft Auto IV, Lavar, Ramsey, or the cult like Question 3 ! Whatever must be done can, and will be done. If the site name must be changed then we can make sure that we search for it either through yahoo or google on a regular basis. I spend a lot of my work day here. My wife found this site one day when looking for a place to find me something for Christmas a couple of years ago. I've loved it since. I've tried to share my time between here and extremeskins but it's a tad difficult to sort through. Or maybe I just got spoiled here.

To all of those who work on this site be it running it, posting, trolling, making duplicate threads lol, reading the threads, ot spreading the world. Keep on doing what you're doing. You can change the name but you cannot change the content. You can't change the soul of this place which is our love for the game of football, more specifically the Washington Redskins. Oh yeah and you who are fans of other teams in the league......we'll give you time to get your life right ! Back to my point. Keep on what you're doing, we'll still be here with you guys !

Hail To The Warpath !

Hail Matty K

And to the NFL

You can all, go, to hell !

Come on everybody let's sing along !

I certainly understand the legal problems behind the IP and trademark issues, but man talk about shitting on the little guy.

"Hey, let's go find some of the most diehard, loyal NFL fans around, the guys who sit around and talk about their team all day long...let's find them, and force them to take anything NFL-related down!"

Brilliant plan. Way to encourage the fan base that made you all billionaires.
