New to the board

Postby CraigHog » Sun Oct 17, 2004 10:22 am

Hello fellow Hogs and Hogettes. I just registered today and look forward to being involved in board discussions.

I do have a question/request, and I'm not sure where to post it so I'll put it in here.

Is there a way to get copies of past Redskins games? I want to digitally encocde them on my computer. I'm able to get MPEGs of Virginia Tech games from a buddy of mine. But I've had no luck in finding Redskins games. Anybody out there with games already encoded? Tapes are better than nothing, and I'd gladly pay for supplies, shipping, and handling if anyone is generous to send their collection my way.

Well, regardless, I'm here to learn and fellowship with my fellow compatriates... Go 'Skins!

Greetings, CraigHog and welcome to the board. If you're interested in board discussions about the Skins, you won't find a better (and especially a better-run) website. BossHog and crew (many people) work very hard to make this place great, and it certainly shows.

As for the Redskins games, there was a guy who came on the site several months ago that was looking to trade DVDs. Here's his post:

Here is his website:

I didn't have any DVDs to trade, and he was open for cash offers/negotiations. Hope this helps. Again, welcome to the board. :)

Thanks for the warm welcome, FanFromAnnapolis. I have to agree I have not found a Skins' board that even comes to close to this one in any way!

And thank you for finding the links to SonnyRules' post. :D I browsed his website and couldn't stop drooling over the games he's got in his collection! I will definitely be getting in touch with him. I really appreciate you taking the time to find this for me. =D>

No problem. Like I said, I had an interaction with the guy. This isn't a plug, but do know that I was very, very happy with how high quality the games were (it was a father's day present for my dad and it didn't dissapoint). Good luck on the game hunting.
