Redskins Have Been Asked If Redskins.com Will Charge For Content, Absolutely Not!

Posted by Redskins.com on March 19, 2013 – 7:33 pm

The Redskins have been asked if Redskins.com will start charging for content. The answer is absolutely not! Redskins.com is and will remain free! While some media outlets have announced plans to start charging for some digital content requiring online readers to pay a subscription fee, not us!

Redskins.comTV, articles, blogs, social connections, live streams, archives, player fantasy stats, exclusive interviews with Redskins players, and more! All of it will remain free for the greatest fans in the NFL!

Today’s Redskins Park Update notes that content on Redskins.com will continue to remain free of charge, plus gives an update on the team’s re-signing of OT Tyler Polumbus.

    I would be will to pay a fee if you would stop the spam ads, stop the deletion of posters, and clean up the filthy language from the arguements between posters. This site is a joke for it’s lack of control, some of these posters are out of control using alias names and harassing others who are in here to talk Redskin Football. We will see what you do!!!

    Excellent news! I literally watch every video you guys post up here, and I feel its the best source of information about the team, because its straight from the horse’ s mouth.

    Been an avid Skins fan since the jurgensen for Snead trade…cemented by the hiring of Vince Lombardi in ’69…and I visit this site regularly. While I firmly believe in our 1st Ammenment rights, the “comments” section of this site has become a huge disappointment and embarrassment. The advertising and spam abuse have to go…the ignorant and foul language abuse have to go. If you can’t do a better job of eliminating those posts, I’ll sadly have to go!

    I’d also suggest a feature to edit a post similar to ESPN…that way I could go back and fix my spelling errors above.

    thats great but if we could get rid of the ad spam,troll spam,control the insult/ profanity.
    fix the report button to where it can be only done by the posters registered ,right now any one can do it, put an ignore post button in,and get a moderator that actually monitors the site,that would make the site much better

    I can live with the spam albeit annoying, but what upsets me more than anything else are all the deleted posts. I can understand if the post contains vulgar language but its gotten to the point where anything certain people post are removed regardless of their content. This is supposed to be a place where people from all countries & backgrounds can come & talk about the best sports franchise in the world. That’s just not happening anymore.

    Very few comments are deleted on this blog. If they are, it is for gratuitous vulgarity, not content. I’m all for a community discussion, but everyone involved should have a certain degree of decency. HTTR

    To Brian Tinsman- It would be great if we lived in a world where people would act decently toward each other but there are people in here who claim they are fans but it’s a constant barrage of derogatory insults to management, players and to the fans who have a positive things to say and discuss. One poster(polofourme) says it’s his duty to come in here and set the idiots straight that are drinking the kool aid of optimism. Another RG3isabust has nothing but hatred for the management for picking Robert Griffin and just loads up the board with repeated post designed to illicit a fight.You are in a position to get this out to the people who control this site and they are the ones who have the technology know-how to prevent this.

    Mr. Tinsman:

    I wholeheartedly agree with you that all posters should have a certain degree of civility when visiting this site & leaving their points of view, however I’m not sure we’re talking about the same thing. If you were to read the comment section to anyone of your articles or anyone of your colleagues articles you would find many posts containing “name withheld, comment is under review”. That sir is what I’m referring to. That sir is what I find most annoying & why I believe long time posters are leaving this site & to me that’s a shame. Thank you for taking the time to read & respond to my point of view.

    When it says “name withheld, comment is under review,” that means it has yet to be approved. It’s a simple function of WordPress blog accounts, and it basically means that that particular reader has yet to leave a comment that has been approved on our end. Frequently, after they have been approved for a comment one or several times, they are free to post their thoughts after that. Until then, their comments will be under review. That’s not a setting that we have any control over, but it’s certainly not intended to be an act of censorship. I love that readers choose to spend their free time reading my or my team’s work. It means even more to me when they share their thoughts. Please do not be deterred to share based on a simple technical safeguard on the comment section. It’s an unfortunate side effect, but I approve just as many comments as I possibly can. HTTR, my friend.

    Attention Mr. Tinsman,

    The comment entries manchild and fanforlife are talking about are in the full article section not this blog.

    Along with the spam and poor language, there are people who put others comments under review. It is done by creating 3 logins and reporting the comment for abuse under all three IDs.

    If you read the comments about the signing of Biggers, you will see there are a few posters trying to legislate who can post and who cannot, by using the 3 ids and submitting for abuse, even if the post is all about football. They just don’t like the person and/or have some vengeance towards them. They then attack other posters who support not removing posts that are football only.

    It is taking what should be an awesome place to discuss Redskins football and allowing those few to ruin it.

    Mr. Tinsman,

    Thank you for the clarification. I was not aware that WordPress was affiliated with Redskins.com or controlled the comment section of the articles.
    As my ID states, I am a “fanforlife”. Rest assured that it would take an act of god to keep me from posting on Redskins.com or following this team. If my wife of 20 years can’t keep me from watching the games, no annoying spam posts or “name withheld, comment is under review” posts will deter me from returning.
    If you would be so kind as to clarify one last thing for me. You stated that once a poster has been approved once or several times that they are then free to post at will. There is a particular poster that goes by the name of Polofourme. He is arguably the sites most hated because of his views on the team. It doesn’t bother me because honest I enjoy the debate. He & I over the years have found a common ground & can debate our differing points of view without incident or vulgarity towards each other. However over the last few months his posts or his replies to my posts have been removed. I know as a fact (judging by his past replies) that his replies to me contain no course language & nothing but football talk. I was wondering why this would be happening? If you could clarify this for me I would greatly appreciate it. Again, thank you for taking the time to respond to me.

    I meant to say ” honestly” not honest, LOL.

    I posted a note earlier that you may have missed.

    The posts in the main article are able to be made Under Review by creating 3 IDs and reporting abuse under each ID. There are a few people using it as a way to censor the site.

    While vulgar and abusive language, along with combative posts have no place and should be deleted, they are deleting posts that are just about football. While I do not at all agree with the message and tone of a few of the posters who do not agree with management, blocking their posts simply because you don’t like them does not seem to me to be the spirit of open discussion.

    Both the poor manners and censorship are ruining what should be a great place to talk Redskins football.

    I look forward to your response.
