    Has anyone else noted the advertisement at the top of the thread display page for ebay, offering a Pats fans a Adam Vinatieri pin and a Deion Branch Jersey.

    Note to advertisers--If you want to get Pats fans pissed off, bring up Deion Branch or Adam Vinatieri.

    You'd think they would try to lure us in by offering merchandise that is not connected to players whose names make us want to vomit.

    But there is sort of an irony to it.

    Zippo,

    Believe it or not, the people who run this site really don't have control over some of the ads. This is a thing called Google Adsense, and the program shoots out site related and key word related ads, therefore pointing people interested in this site towards Patriots related Ads. I actually bought a brand new Bruschi Replica jersey on Ebay last night for $62, which incuded shipping. A pretty hefty savings over the Pats proshop (79.99 +tax+shipping would have cost me $90+). Whenever you see Ads by Google, it means a website uses Google Adsense. Plus Google pays the website everytime someone clicks on the ads. Just like most websites, Patsfans is trying to make some money, and provide a wonderful service to us Pats fans.

    I am aware the site has no control over it. I just think it's kinda funny.

    #54 Jersey

    Googles Adsense takes keywords from whatever is posted on this board and tries to figure out what's hot at this moment and then looks for products that match. That's probably why DB's stuff have been advertised lately. Obviously Adam's status must have come up a lot lately too.
