Ummm.. I don't think he was "hanging his hat" on the one interview. He simply stated his opinion that the Cooley discussion was more informative than the Gibbs chat. It's hard to argue with the statement but it is just an opinion. Exactly what is your point in being here and why now are coming here and bringing up issues from weeks ago? If you have a beef just state it rather than flaming. Then we can discuss the issues.

I don't think anyone here said they expected him to answer the question but many of us felt it was ridiculous to simply avoid asking the question. Who ever heard of a journalist simply not asking a question becasue he thought he knew the answer or knew that the interviewee wouldn't answer? It ridiculous and honestly a little embarassing for you all. If you all don't want to seem in their pocket I would suggest not avoiding controversial issues in your future chats for any reason. Especially lame ones.

Re: extremeskins chat with Joe Gibbs

Extreme -

I am not a mod for this site and can only speak for myself. I enjoy warpath, I tried extremeskins a few times and found the site interesting with lots of good content. I also found that I had to sift through tons of less than good content and the various avatars and sigs to be a huge distraction and the color scheme to be bearable for only a short time.

The Skins picked your site to meld into their own. Congratulations. I should hope that as part of the deal you should get the best "chats" possible, if only from an access point. At the same time, avoiding the key QB issues when they are hot did seem to be playing right into the "resistance is futile, you will be assimilated" concerns that were voiced by many, many Skins fans who visit more than just one site (including many of your own regulars). I am sure you have a reason for it - but, the whole "we are going to avoid QB questions" seemed to be directly contradictory to the whole purpose of having a fan website serve as the access point to the Skins hierarchy. As for the Cooley chat here, the cheerleader issue came up AFTER our chat with him or, trust me, their WOULD have been questions!

In my opionion, we are a smaller site and to a certain degree have to take what we can get when it comes to inside info. Previously, one of own (JoeCrisp) had been given press passes and given us inside reports. About the same time the Skins merge with Extremeskins, our guy gets his access taken away. Because of that, we have a tendency to be a bit defensive about our site and, perhaps, a little envious of/angry at the access given to extremeskins - which seemed to come at the expense of other fan sites.

Our mods don't go to your site and spit on it and, while maybe some random member may have, I doubt that any of our loyalists did. So, if we want to gripe and thump our chests on our OWN site, why should that be of any concern to you? If you want to trash the warpath, go do it on your own site.

We may be small here but we have a loyal, knowledgeable following who appreciate the different content and feel of this site. There really is no need for you to come in here and shit on us for feeling good about ourselves.

You have your style and it works well for you. Good luck with it and thank you for the good stuff you do post.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions... but I actually think it's quite funny that ES are getting their feathers ruffled by little ol' us.

Love to hear about that... let's see if you guys have some balls.
Somebody is a little testy, huh?

Your own members had some very strong opinions regarding the Gibbs chat, and some of us here did as well.

Some of us felt you guys dropped the ball a bit... that's all. It's not the end of the world, and it certainly didn't warrant your condescending remarks.

Nice response Matt. Its actually funny. the smaller, independent fan sites that promote real honest to goodness unfiltered info and discussion, and we are a threat? You know it gets old hearing that we should all just be redskins fans and get along. The only one not taking that advice is ES. Come on folks, lets just cooperate. We are proud of what he have at hR and I can attest to the great site Matt has right here! Bottom line is, we love this franchise. Were not competing with ES, we don't want to, we just wanna do our thing. With ES you get the opfficial word. With theWarpath and hR, you get great discuussion, honest evaluations, and point blank commentary. Let's just get along ES!
