February 2004 - the only Redskins fan site I use ...

my thanks to Boss Hog and the staff for all the great work ...


Ah the early days of Thn... back when there were only a couple hundred members and we'd actually be happy to see the fans of other F2FA sites come over so that we could fight with them.

Well except for General Failure, cuz the kat was cooler than the other side of the pillow. :)

Thanks for all your time, and thanks for making us your home.

Does that mean I am going to be Zuckerburg rich one day?

Bahahahahahahahahaha

Ahem, sorry.

I'm glad you found a home, and have kept coming back - it's the fans that make it all go together. We may not all always see eye-to-eye, but we share that common bond...

... that burgundy and gold fever.

Thank you for your patronage.

thanks mark =D>


I'll give that a big Amen brother. I know you been here since nearly the very beginning - seen almost all of it - I thank you for giving your time, energy and Redskins sweat to this forum.

I hope we can have many more years to lament and maybe even to celebrate. lol

Thank YOU for the past 10 years, Mark. It's been amazing to have a home among real fans. I've learned so much by sticking around.


There wouldn't have been a ten years for this forum, if it wasn't for you brother.

And through thick and thin as well.

I know the trials and tribulations that you have faced.

I don't really know how to say thank you to you properly, so I will weakly just offer the words...

Thank you Daniel. For everything you do and continue to do.

Still remember the day I met you like it was yesterday Steve. Certainly hard to believe that so much time has passed since then.

I gotta get down there and see you again soon bro. Keep keeping it real like you do.

And thanks for giving us your time and your Redskins blood, sweat and tears.

Thanks bro. Besides, you're just a tad shy and thank YOU for your contributions as a staff member.

And thanks for dedicating so much time to THn and to calling it home.

Been a member since JULY 2003.

Hope to be for many more.... This is our year I have a feeling [-o<


Wowsers! Again, I'm really taken by the guys who don't always post a lot, but have been here so long.

And you truly have been here since the beginning. While I opened the forum OFFICIALLY in June of 2003, it took me weeks to figure it all out - get it all set up etc. So really... July of 2003 was basically when this site started taking on message board members.

And you've been here the whole time.

Kudos. And sincerely, thank you.

Joined in Dec of 03, haven’t posted a lot recently, but I have nothing but fond memories (camp, tailgates, and road trips) of the past 10+ years. I still come here to keep up with Redskins news, always (and still do) enjoy the site. I’m still bitter over my “Scrapple” lost to RfansinR…I crushed him!!! LOL!!!

10 years ago my life was in a rough patch. My daughter was in the hospital for several weeks, and it was touch and go for her. Then I lost my father early that spring. But that summer I went to training camp for the first time, (wearing my TheHogs.net t-shirt), and met Mark, Jake, Chris and several other members. Mark you made everyone feel like we'd been friends for years. I still smile when I remember the big rainstorm that hit before the 2nd practice that day, and you (Mark) invited us back to your hotel for a beer and dry shirts.

TheHogs.net gave me an escape during a tough time and it also gave me a good friend in you Mark. I thank you for that.

Oh by the way, I spent a couple of days in Niagara Falls chasing my now healthy daughter around last summer. We were going to head up to Toronto and I was going to see if you were available, but that was when Toronto was having some flooding so we headed home instead. We do plan on coming back to the great white north though and the Toronto area will be on the agenda. :D

Member since Sept.04' here.

I take in a lot of Skins info through various media and it's great to have the opportunity to let my voice be heard here with fellow knowledgeable fans.
