    I’m sure you guys have some well-founded position on not linking to ESPN and feeding your traffic to local blogs like yourselves, but…

    could you please start linking to Keim again, because, despite his recent affiliation to the WWL, he is still no-doubt, hands-down, bar-none, the best “‘skins” blogger out there.

    show him (and me) some love please..

    The article about changing the name to the Americans, but keeping everything else, that’s a great idea.

    @Trevor Good point about Keim. I’m cool to link to ESPN when something comes up, and I need to remind myself to check for Keim’s stuff over there.

    The “Americans” may be the best suggestion yet, much better than the Warriors or Hogs, Or Skins or Renegades…

    Soooooooooo, I read the Oneida article and it did not mention how many people showed up. This really smells of a Martha Burk style “protest”. Also, did they talk about the Braves and their “woo, woo, woo” style tomahawk chop? What about Cleveland’s horrific Amos ‘n’ Andy style logo? Every time that grotesque thing pops up I shake my head and wonder how it escapes all this falderal.
