There was a thread saying congrats Edmonton, or something of the like, and a few of your members wandered over to say thanks.

Stauffer gave the site a plug after Diesel was on "Total Sports" (but mainly hockey, even though the Oilers are dead and buried this year:D) last week.

I was completely unaware that a site like this even existed until the infamous Andre Proulx holding call on Wad's last field goal.

The CFL the next day actually mentioned that Wad had been "defending" the call on a well-known Edmonton Eskimo sports blog called esksfans.com, so I checked it out and here I am. You can all thank (read: blame) Andre Proulx for my presence here!!

Cheers,

I believe I saw a banner or sign at a game that said esksfans.com so I came to check it out.

There was a sign on behalf of the site at the 05 Grey Cup that did get TV time. I believe it read: Nik, having a great time, wish you were here, regards Shannon Garrett & Esksfans.com"

Wonder who put that up?:angel:

I don't think that was the sign I saw. I seem to remember a sign that said nothing more than: "esksfans.com."

This part may be incorrect, but I thought I saw it behind the south endzone area. It would have been during the 2004 season because I didn't do anything with it for several months and then checked out the site and joined in March.

I read about it on the esks.com message board... I was a regular there along with a fella' named Fish and Esks4Life... those were the days...

I think the hubby read about in the Sun when there was an uproar about 'inappropriate avatars'. Aforementioned Fish had created the stir by choosing a scantily clad lady for his avatar... Thanks Fish... if it weren't for you he would have never started hanging out here and I would probably still be single.;)

Interestingly, I found Esksfans in 2010 when I googled "New Oilers announcer" and a thread about Rod Phillips' replacement search came up. I then frequented as a guest from then on up until this past March.

And no, I am NOT this Swiv guy that you guys keep heckling me about.

Hello all, heard about the site for a while, in particular about the time when ET got hired and the controversy started. I'm sure that was an interesting time but I didn't check it out as my dissillusionment with the team was already well underway. DM's tenure and the massive fail that was the Tsoumpas trade caused me to lose a lot of interest in the team. It just got worse with the ET hire. Then I moved to Vancouver Island about 4 years ago (I hate all things Lions) and distance seemed to make it easier to ignore the team and the circus surrounding it (can't seem to do that with the Oilers though - mores the pity). I could never quite sever the ties but I found most times I couldn't watch more than a quarter before switching the channel in disgust.

With the firing of KR I got curious about the next HC and started to lurk a little here. I'm a fan of the new HC. The CJ hire has me believing that he can re-invigorate this team. I won't be drinking the coolaid just yet but I have hope. I am actually looking forward to Eskimo news, the expansion draft, the college draft and training camp and I figured I could get a fix here.

I'll try to keep things shorter from here on in.

Lack of anything other that Oiler coverage has made me hate the Oilers
