    I really don't like seeing an ad when I come here for a pats shirt with pat patriot holding a camera and a big asterisk in the middle of his head.

    Seriously, that is bad karma all around.

    Interesting. Can you get a screenshot of it and send it to me if you see it again?

    Hey Ian, welcome back.

    I saw what neuronet was referring to. It appeared in the "featured advertisement" block. The ad was for tauntr.com (I think I got the site name right, not positive), a site that sells t-shirts - many of which are meant to 'taunt' someone else. The ones in that ad basically taunted all the AFC East teams and maybe one additional team as I recall. So the ad was probably targeted for the Pats and their rivals based on this being a site that attracts - well, fans of the Pats and their rivals.

    Hope that helps.

    I haven't seen it a day or so.

    Yes, it's a taunting shirt, it also had a dolphin cut up into sushi. :eek:

    I guess it worked.

    Thank you jmt57 :D

    If it was in that block I know what network it's from, so I'll send an e-mail to get that one pulled.

    I did go to that site, and I do have to admit...some of the stuff is actually pretty funny :cool:
