That is awesome. Great Pete story also.
This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
To satisfy rule #6, will you copy the interview to this thread?Originally Posted by RedlegNation
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
rule #6 is an interesting rule. BA's lawyers feel it opens Redszone up to legal action. We don't always post the entire article if said article is ESPN. It's a fine line but Redleg Nation isn't a direct competitor of Redszone. In fact, it links to Redszone prominently, therefore increasing Redszone's page rank. The reverse is not true due to the nature of a messageboard only site.
Not having rule #6 would in fact ease some of the server load on Redszone, and face it, it isn't like you are going to lose members, or that they will forget Redszone exists.
Copyright laws for the internet are still blurry at best, but since BA is exempt, this should definitely be on a case by case basis, or have rule #6 better defined to say no links to sites with the express intent of selling a product.

I'll ask again why does a baseball site turn down away free baseball content?
I could understand if Redleg Nation was trying to make a profit off of this but the fact is he is providing free and quality information about one of the Reds personalities. The funny thing is if you look on the side of his homepage there is a link to RedsZone so it's not like it's a post of malicious purposes to try to get people away from RedsZone. Oh and not to mention the writer of this article posted this himself. Great post and great work by Redleg Nation, I'm sure it was a very neat opportunity to have this interview.

He also doesnt appear to feature any Google ads to profit from visitors. I dont see a problem with his link because his site is well thought out and has a following (based on blog responses).Originally Posted by harangatang
I'll post it here, if that's proper. I don't care, we're not making a penny on the site; it's not like I'm trolling for traffic so I can raise my ad rates.
As a matter of fact, I've spent quite a bit out of my own pocket on RN, for hosting and design, etc. Just a labor of love because I'm a Reds fan. I consider it my hobby, and my wife doesn't complain too much.
And one other point...I founded RN, but one of the other contributors is actually the guy who did the interview. I enjoyed reading it as much as everyone else.
That's great and my compliments to your website providing free and quality Reds information. Thanks for sharing it, I learned some interesting about the Reds, most notable that the FSN announcers get paid more than the WLW announcers.Originally Posted by RedlegNation
And for all of that you rock Chad, a great interview.. kudos to Bill and to the batteries in the recorderOriginally Posted by RedlegNation
Yeah, but I just wish we could have kept you on board, WOY.
Great interview. Now, I guess we know another reason why Dick Williams wasn't referred to as "Richard."

Great interview! Thanks for posting. CW should seriously consider writing a book. He's got some funny stories to tell.
