Nice, thanks jamf. I thought I'd follow up with a pic I photoshopped to kick off the voting. It is a recreation of James Flagg's popular recruiting poster of Uncle Sam.

Below is the link to the Uncle Skins fanpage if anyone is inclined to 'like' it and keep up with the status of the Redskins contest.

Re: Redskins Fan Draft Photo Contest

THey have a kid up there with "Dallas Sucks" on his naked rear end. Isn't that considered child pornography? Probably not a wise decision.

Also, kudos Uncle Skins. Looking good bro. I'm surprised you have a wife that actually goes along with this...lol

I'll cease & desist my attempts though since there is no active interest. Enjoy the offseason Warpath!

Re: Redskins Fan Draft Photo Contest

Wow, you were robbed!

I couldn't vote though, never will be on F-book, but I would have voted if it were open to normal people, I mean everyone.

Love the pic for #1 though and WOW at #5, the tornado guy.

I have to give credit to the idea of the #1 picture but what's funny is he is from Dallas, Oregon.

He took the picture in front of a "Welcome To Dallas" sign that is located in Dallas, Oregon, no where near his implied location of Dallas, Texas. If you look at the sign you'll see pine trees which are not prevelent around the Dallas, Texas area but are in Oregon...Lol.

It's definitely sour grapes for me to even mention that but it's also decieving on his, especially with the title of "Hating Dallas In Dallas"

Oh well, I'll go lick my wounds as we didnt even place in the top 5, doh!

Re: Redskins Fan Draft Photo Contest

Dear Uncle Skins, Im sorry you feel that our pic was in some way deceiving. That was not our intention. Our intention was to take a pic that was both creative, fun and that showed our love for our beloved Redskins. I grew up in Dallas 'Oregon' for most of my childhood, so 'Hating Dalllas in Dallas" is exactly what we did for years. I also believe my kids played more of a role in winning than did some welcome to Dallas sign but thats just my opinion. In closing to be honest with you I thought your pic was gonna get drafted first overall and like you, was shocked it didn't make it in the top 5. Perhaps when I attend my first home game I can buy you and Betsy Ross a beer. You guys ran one hell of a campaign. HTTR!
