Extremeskins

If the Snyders sell the team, hopefully Extremeskins still has a fan in the front office…

One thing I have to say - it was really low of Skins fans to boo Tanya Snyder during her commercial for breast cancer awareness, and this is coming from someone who can't wait for ownership to change.  She is a breast cancer survivor, and the Snyders are the ones who got the NFL to do breast cancer awareness month.If the Snyder’s offered more opportunities to boo them, maybe that wouldn’t happen.

 

Generally speaking, yes.  But it’s her husbands fault she’s been trotted out there to take his bullets.  If the Snyder’s offered more opportunities for the fanbase to voice their displeasure, that may not happen as well.  It would seem that was pent up emotion being unleashed at the first opportunity, even though it wasn’t ideal.

Sorry... Didn't see this, or I would have responded sooner...

 

Both Tanya Snyder and Jason Wright were sporting their ES Pins at that game.

 

If you guys recall, we had a ton of those made up a number of years ago to raise money for the tailgate charity (Abby's Army). Tanya reached out to us and then sent her son to our tailgate to purchase more than half of our stock, and handed them out to a bunch of the redskins staff, coaches and others. FYI, this is not the first time she has sported that pin.

 

During the housecleaning a year or two ago, Extremeskins kinda got lost in the mix, and completely forgotten (we had a couple outages because they forgot to pay the light bill). Huly and I and some of the folks here worked to get ES back on their radar, and I can tell you that Tanya is fully aware of this site's presence.

 

Despite what you think about Dan Snyder, I can tell you that Tanya is an absolutely awesome person... between her charity efforts, and the way she treats people in the organization, she has been a fantastic person to work with.

 

A concern that Huly and I have is what will happen to this site if a transfer of ownership occurs. We may want to make contingency plans to go independent again. WE will do everything we can to help make sure that the organization always knows about the presence of ES and the die hard fans that live here...

Haven’t really interacted here a ton, but I will say that forums as a medium have been dying and many are dead.  They were extremely popular from 2005-2010, then things started to slowly bleed out when Twitter started.  When Reddit became popular around 2014, forums died completely.  There are very few large communities left, and many of them are slowly dying.  I used to run ProSportsDaily, a very large forum, which is now owned by Tribune Media and operated by Nova Scotia Media Pros, who also operate Covers.com.  Needless to say, most of their attention is on Covers.  I stopped coming around to PSD mid 2020, and they still haven’t noticed I rarely log in, and don’t do anything in the AdminCP.  

Before PSD, I ran a sports-gaming site on my own.  We did well for ourselves, but with GroupMe and Discord becoming popular, the sports gaming leagues we hosted ended up going there so we lost a huge base.  


It’s just the evolution of the internet.  I’m sure ES is one of the more active forums out there, and fills a niche, but you also have Reddit to compete with. I f a new owner comes into play and wants to shut this place down and not sell the database, that’s it for ES.  If that starts to happen, you might want to create a Facebook group to start stockpiling people if you do want to start a new site of some sort, whether forum or otherwise.  

 

Just my .02 coppers on the matter.
