The M Den banner

Submitted by Subrosa on September 2nd, 2009 at 2:13 AM

Am I crazy, or is that new? And what ELSE does this alleged "sponsorship" entail, hmmm???? We MGoCitizens have a right to know!

GOD this site was so much better before it sold out.

As an aside, I can only wonder how the M Den managed to secure such prominent internet real estate given that there is apparently no way for them to reach the "Website Master" on this we-blog doohicky. There must be a post office box listed in the yellow pages or something.

it entails a sidebar ad and some clearly-marked links once a week, FWIW. they secured prominent internet real estate by being fantastic and awesome.

PS: WOO SELLOUT

the continued existence of this blog is alright by me. Brian will be making a living at this blog long after Rosenberg is fired from his next job as PR for a girls field hockey team.

Actually I think the MDen idea is great. Now media people that question a blog's credibility will have to realize that it's actually recognized by a respected institution (I respect MDen). Not that MGoBlog wasn't considered credible to begin with, just to the media people that questioned it.

C'mon. We would all prefer no advertising anywhere (except where we want it), but that is not realistic. First, this website needs to generate funds to pay for itself, including all the future improvements I see all of you keep asking for. Second, Brian is entitled to make a profit off of his good initial idea to start the website and the hard work he has invested in building it. This is America, right? We are still a capitalistic society?

now they've become popular and quoted in the MSM, which means that to maintain my own indie cred I have to immediately start slagging them. They were so much cooler before they changed their music to go mainstream. Sellouts.

We should take this opportunity to make Mgopoints have tangible worth. Can we finally start redeeming them? I'm sure an all in for Michigan towel shouldn't be worth more than 10,000 Mgopoints or so.

/half joking.

I usually think advertising is a waste of money. Not this time. M-Den - please put 4 tee-shirts on hold for me that I'll pickup when I'm in town for the ND game. I'm not joking.
