They even asked me if there are sites out there I wanted to direct them to and I said nah, I'm definitely not interested in throwing others under the bus.

I think our highlight videos got their attention and things just snowballed.
I would have given them links to any Dallas, Eagles, and Giant sites that you knew of just to get at them a little. Heck, I didn't even see this until today.

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

Absolutely perfect. Could not have said it any better myself even if I tried.

Matty,

I am sure this is not an easy time. I agree with not giving up a domain you own. If they want to purchase it, then... that is a different story. Of course, they are within their rights to stop us from using their logo's. Just stupid overall though.

Can I petition to change my user name so I don't get sued by the NFL?

Matt, just a suggestion..

What if I called Chris Gordon over at NBC 4 and "bring this up". Or do you think that would cause too much of a stink?

I'd rather not go that route

Re: Important site news please read

Eeesh. This sucks. Oh well, they can't change the quality of the posters and the discussions we have, and ultimately I guess that's all that matters. I suppose rather than embedding youtube videos we could just post links, right? I would think in that case the NFL would have to take it up with youtube and not us....

Sorry you had to deal with this, Matty. Thanks for taking the time to make the proper corrections and keeping us all in the loop.

Re: Important site news please read

yeah thanks for everything Matty. I am sure the site quality will not go down. the NFL is being a huge douche right now but what can you do? I cant even get Redskins checks because I live in TX and Bank of America only supports the Cowboys. The way this is being handled only makes this site better IMO.

Re: Important site news please read

It's all my fault, fellas. I tore one of those mattress labels off my mattress--a very serious crime. Then I was busted for jaywalking. And finally, I drank beer as a minor. The feds had me in a bind, so I gave up all the crazy illegal stuff going on here. Look, I just can't do time. I am just too pretty. I wouldn't last an hour in there. My bad.


What a crock of horse shit. Yet another way to pay back the loyal fans.

Let us know if you need anything to help keep the site going, Matty. Do we need a legal defense fund?

FREE THE WARPATH! FREE MATTY! ATTICA! ATTICA!

Re: Important site news please read

Could the solution be as simple as removing the "s" from Redskins? They only have the word Redskins trademarked right?

The reason I ask is because the guys a RedskinRoadtrips made it a point to leave out the "s" to avoid the trademark issue when they named their site.

Yeah we've discussed (among the mods) several possible alternatives, exactly like the one you mentioned. Our current position is simply to comply with their request and remain inconspicuous for the indefinite future. We don't want to draw more attention at the moment.

Best thing everyone can do is continue to provide quality posts and contribute to intelligent discussion. People will find this site. They key is to encourage them to want to stay once they get here.

And some word of mouth advertising doesn't hurt either, to fellow fans that you know and think would make good additions to the site.
