Special Thanks To The Staff Of THN

Postby langleyparkjoe » Tue Nov 27, 2007 4:47 pm

With everything that happened to one of our own, I just wanted to say on behalf of us "regular" members of the website, thank you staff for everything you've done today. Throughout the day people have been coming up to me at work asking am I ok and wanting to talk about it and such. I mean that's great don't get me wrong, but they don't know what it feels to be a Redskin fan for so many years. They have no idea how it felt to have 3 SB Rings and then play like garbage following that. Lastly, they have no idea what it feels like to have your favorite NFL player die. Hell, I was hurt when Mr. Taylor got injured, but now he's dead and it wasn't football related. I pray that Miami-Dade police catch these people that are at fault and prosecute them to the fullest extent. So with all that, I'd like to offer a big round of applause to "Admin" and everyone else on his staff that helped us cope today with this horrible tragedy. Without this website, I'd have no place to call home while I was at work.

Yeah. My faith had been flagging big time this season. I'm an old time old school fan with 42 years of passionate support. And I've been losing the faith more than ever this year, just tired of caring so much, but last night and even so more today I realize it's just a blessing to have a team that I truly care about win or lose. And to have a place like THN where I can be part of a group of guys and girls who care as much as I do makes me feel truly fortunate, especially becaue I'm a long way from home. I think any true Skins fan is devistated right now. I love this team to my core, and now more than ever, when I just ache to my core for Sean and his family and the Skins family, it helps to have THN to call home.
All Hail the Maroon and Black!!!!

The staff has done an outstanding job to help us cope with the loss of one of the most memorable skins there has been. I've just been watching the pro-bowl hit on loop. R.I.P Sean taylor

We are a community. We're all here for each other. I'm so fortunate to be part of such a group. Staff, you did an amazing job of covering this and allowing this site to be a place to discuss and vent our troubles. god bless.
There are only two teams I root for in the NFL. The Skins, and whoever is playing Dallas.

It's okay that we drafted a Landry. After this season, the crygirls will have a new association with that name.

Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans for over a decade and a half. Stay away from football operations !!!
