THE BIG SURPRISE! - Teaser Image

Recommended Posts

I wonder if MyGolfSpy has taken the advice of the forum members. When the leftter from the "Disgruntled" reader about sponsors, the overwhelming response from us was "taking money does not compromise your principles." Not writing your opinion because someone is paying you compromises principles. Take the money from all of them so that there is no favoritism.

 

Now we have a thread to get us fired up about an upcoming contest, and T has been as busy as a fluffer at a porno shoot trying to keep up the excitement, and now we have hints dropped about sponsors. Then 10 sponsors and now a time frame.

 

I do not know who the OEM's are but if it is the big ones good for MGS. And perhaps even better for MGS readers.

Well definitely some big name sponsors for this contest Rick, but those are not going to be sponsors on the site long term as of now at least.

 

And unfortunately taking money from them has compromised every single media outlet in this industry and the majority in other fields as well. Just human nature. You take money from someone you are less likely to say bad things about them. Pretty much how our government and society is run nowadays. And the other issue is it is great if they ALL sign up and pay even amounts, but that is just not likely at all. You will have ones that don't commit and others that drop off because of things I publish.

 

You guys just don't realize that these guys really are like the mafia, they want complete control of all content, and I get it, but that fact makes it extremely difficult to do the job I want to do for you. We have ones bohooing, not wanting to participate, wanting me to change what i write, etc. already and we don't even take their ad dollars, what do you think they will do once we do?

 

Sorry to get off topic this will be for another day but definitely up for debate and I want all your feedback.

I thought the fluffer comment I made would be more upsetting.:D

 

 

 

My feedback is do what you want? Love the site, and the way it is run.

Well...the good news is I wanted to release a few more details about the contest today. The bad news is that the copy I sent to GolfSpy X came back heavily redacted. Apparently we're still not ready to share all the details.

The grand prize increases your chance of winning and the 3rd place winner has to speak their mind to win big? :blink: :lol:

Just two and a half more days of teasers before we know what's happening. I'm guessing the grand prize will be a full set of custom fitted clubs and accessories from the contest sponsors. Second and Third place?? Who knows but I'll bet it's something almost as awesome.

Man you guys are killing me here - you really are.

 

Can't wait for Thursday. Here's my practice smile :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

 

What do you think?

Taylor Made Stealth 10.5  Aldila Ascent Red R flex

Ping G410 5, 7, 9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 5-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Still on that elusive hunt for a 3 wood that I'm able to hit - I don't know why, I crush the 5 wood and it's really a 4 wood anyway.

Why not Taylormade? They get more press on this forum than anyone. Even the bad press talks about how great they are at some things. Even though the are the best at Marketing. But even us who do not play TMag, admit that they have a quality product. Maybe not the best in every catagory but it is still good. There is a saying about "Who cares what they say as long as they are talking about me." TMag has to benefit from this.

 

This is like the "Why I hate Bubba..." thread. For every bad comment about him there were two or three good ones.

 

I can not wait either....

It appears that they are still teasing. I go to facebook and do what it says, and it says all entries must be less than 100 words and can not use the term robot, and does not give you any place to make an entry.

Thanks mudfish, but this is what I already had. Maybe I am just stupid, I click enter now, and get the five rules but there is no place to enter my entry that is less than 100 words and can be witty and funny but can not use the word r____t or any synonyms for _obo_.

 

 

I am pretty sure that since I clicked over from a link on the MyGolfSpy News letter, that I already subscribe.

I think there is a problem if you use Firefox as your browser. I normally use Firefox, but had to use Internet Explorer to submit my entry. Once I opened the link using IE everything worked fine.

 

I'm wondering about the voting. One vote per day. Can you vote for your own entry?

I have to say, I'm disgusted with the reaction on the blog. It's taken everything in me to not just start ripping people, but I respect the site too much to do that.

 

X and T, you guys have done a great job and I'm sorry that people are being so negative towards your hard work. I know it's hard not to let it get to you, MOST of us appreciate all the hard work and time you invest into the site. You guys are awesome.
