Evening folks!!

Earlier today I had to close submissions to our auction. They have been coming in fast and furious and then all the contracts had been sent and now all but a couple have been returned and I am reserving 5 slots for headliners above and beyond what we already have.

We now have 350 domains in the auction in less than 100 lots. We are registering phone bidders and I think you are all going to be surprised when you see COMBUSTION!

52 of 93 lots are NO RESERVE!! That's incredible and thanks goes to those that understand what we all need to do and have really stepped up to the plate. You are going to see some real action when the gavel goes down!

Will be on the Auction Block? T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Domain Submissions Now CLOSED!

Morning Folks!!

I have to stop submissions to the domain auction at this point. There are already enough contracts out there to bring us to 100 and I am reserving a few slots for some last minute additions.

Will be on the auction block?

I doubt it this time around but things are fluid and moving quickly. Yesterday's front page Yahoo! story now has some 2700 comments in less than 24 hours. Some of them are brutal. It started here last week on and then CBS in Dallas. Then it hit just before it spins out of control yesterday and 1 week later it is still growing. The whole city of Dallas is buzzing.

Then it hit Then Then the

In Philly, they talk about the

The 'Trojans' are now worried. As are other teams that have a 'Gay' outlook. Buccaneers Titans.

All with STRONG opinions attached followed by comments from various groups of folks.

There are now stories that started last week and continue and grow. It will hit TV soon. Mark my words. This is having a life of it's own and it is so STUPID and UNBELIEVABLE in so many respects I don't even know where to start.

I have not commented on this so far but let me write what I did this morning when asked. And let me state, I am talking for myself and not the group.

'Let me say this....It was only a matter of time before this happened.

When you do something stupid, it comes back to haunt you. This was beyond stupid and helps to illustrate just how wrong Madison Avenue has been in regards to domain names. They have really let their clients down by being behind the curve when it comes to domain names.

Corporate America has been behind the curve as well, maybe because they depend on Madison Ave. But then again I always ask why not one CEO or any exec up and down the line at Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton, Holiday Inn, Westin, just name your hotel chain and ask why not a single one figured out that if they owned they would have a leg up on the competition. Have first shot over their competition because a domain like gets several hundred THOUSAND type ins back as early as 1996. They all FAILED!

When the Dallas Cowboys attorney stated he thought it was $275 and not 275,000 back 5 years ago, after 10 minutes of bidding, few of us believed him. I mean how much is the guy paid an hour?

But when they passed and made it clear that they were the DALLAS Cowboys and not the Cowboys that gave a group of us the permission and power to scoop up this very valuable domain name.

They fumbled the ball in public and it was sure to come back and bite them in the butt. The Yahoo story along with about 5 other stories see clearly the screwup.

That's what happens when you make a bad decision. A bad play. A turnover.

We would have been just as happy to show the DALLAS Cowboys how having MULTIPLE entrances to their website is not much different than having multiple entrances to their stadium. Imagine if their stadium only had one door. The game would be over before they could get all the people through that one door. DUH!'

This story is FAR from over. Bad decisions never go away.'
