Just don't run your mouth on ES. Last thing we need is their rejects, well unless you outline the fact that you won't be able to create threads on obscure topics just because your post in the main thread happened to fall on the bottom of a page and become replaced by a new totally.......no stupid threads.

Thanks.
How much for a lawyer I would be willing to throw in a donation, A consultation should not cost too much to find out if the NFL has a right to the domain name. 10, 20 dollars a member should be way more than enough. Seems to me this team is called the washington redskins. Not the redskinswarpath. How can a judge rule for the nfl on that one. I would stall for a few days and find out about your rights. If you are willing to give to the cause then someone start a new thread and get some volunteers. We need to go quickly.

I tell all my B&G friends, and few get motivated to visit. I'm not sure why. This forum has seemed like family for more than four or five years now for me. When I got the error message, I felt like I had lost many hundreds of friends with no way to re-connect.

Intelligent discussion is great, but sometimes I just enjoy bringing a little humor to the discussion.

It's great you are able to bring the site back, but I'm sorry about the circumstances that brought this about.

I think I will go in and change my User CP, or thread subscription or something. I echo an earlier comment about some sort of e-mail system for members about any other drastic shutdowns should help ease our worry.

It does suck but ultimately I think we're getting too worked up. The content of the site will remain unchanged and that's what matters.

One thing we could do is utilize the visitor messages to welcome new people when they sign up. We don't have a hospitality section where people can introduce themselves, so that might be a good way to make people feel at ease and encourage them to join the discussions.

This is the lamest thing I have ever heard. I work in online and personally, think that this approach of sending a cease-and-desist over trademark / IP infringement is such an archaic and old school approach.

It makes me sick. Sicker than the Redskins picking three receivers in round 2.

F the NFL!
I'm just a season away from giving up!
It's the internet, let there be fans!
Bad protocol for the future I'm afraid...

I think our highlight videos got their attention and things just snowballed.
I wonder if any of this is a result of the warpath being deatured on Ch 4? No matter what the reason it stinks.

Doubt it. We were featured on Fox 5 a few years ago as well.

Archaic and old school, businesses use their branding more today then ever before and I can understand why they asked for us not to use their logo's. For all they know Matty is making money off this site while using their logo's so that makes sense. The domain name is what I don't get. They do not have a trade mark on the word redskin rather they have a trade mark on the way the logo is done. Like how the "R" is designed and associated with the NFL and the Redskins.

Re: Important site news please read

I have a hard time understanding why the NFL is coming down on fan message boards. In my opinion, they would be better served to work with message boards. This would only promote the NFL and create tons of goodwill.

They should be able to see that there isnít a monthly charge or any fees to be a member. The Warpath, like most all message boards, give you the chance to make contributions to defray the cost of running the site.

I understand copyrights and such, but most message boards are created by fans for fans. Instead of trying to have games all over the world, work with your real fan base. Help us to develop better sites to promote their product.

Perhaps you should no longer take advertising of NFL Licensed products?

All jokes aside (yes, that was a joke)... While they are being petty, they are within their rights about the logo's. I would not give them the domain without financial considerations. You can always tell them you plan to give the domain to a Native American Casino.
