Here's what I wrote to Tanner:
'I built the site because I love this sport. period. I also happen to own a web design company so I have access to programmers to do the backend development work. I did all the graphics work myself. Every picture, every video, all the flash.
That said... sponsorship is what keeps sites like this alive. I've dumped a bunch of my company's money and time into this to get the best quality I could without spending a ton more. If I can recoup that and make a few bucks more, then I can make the site bigger and better. It's all good for everybody. I'm certainly not asking you or any site visitor for cash to hang out here. Enjoy the site. Loosen up.'
