I continue to become aware of subscribers and members here posting Hookem.com information on other msg boards without crediting Hookem.com properly.
If another site has a problem with crediting a source properly, then we'd ask you stop posting the information we provide on someone else's board.
There is more than one Texas site out there and to devalue the work that Jeff, Gerry, Blake, Dave and myself do is unacceptable. If it was your work, I'm sure you'd feel the same way.
Sorry to have to write this. Thanks for reading this.

All he is saying is tell them where you got it,which is a stark contrast to some of those other sites. They will ban you for posting their stuff on another site whether you credit them or not.
Ketchum and Suchomel can't stand competition. They get scooped so much their ass hangs in the wind if you mention your site.
A timely message and one that should be repeated every now and then on all sites, imo.
I personally would hope that members here don't take this as an opportunity to bash other sites to gain favor with the owners/writers of this site. I doubt it would meet their approval in a fashion you think it does.
This site stands alone in what it offers. So do the others.

If anybody puts anything on the intertrons where it can be read by others, it's fair game to be quoted. What some folks seem to forget is that you gotta attribute your source. I think some folks just get lazy, because hopefully they are not so deluded as to think that others could be lead to think that THEY had such original thoughts! Sorry for such a poor attempt at humor before my morning caffeine infusion. Blur BLARB BLeCHHH! OK, Bobby, I hereby attribute this original gem to you! Lordy! I even had to edit that drivel ... I ain't claiming it!

If this is the best site, and it is, why do you go to another site anyway? Just saying.
When this site premiered it quickly became the best site for Longhorn information. Since that time the content has easily tripled with no increase in the subscription price. Giving proper credit is the least we can do. An even better approach would be not to give away proprietary content on other sites. Building the paid subscriber base is the best way to avoid increases in the cost of your subscription.
I'm a member of all the various pay sites because it feeds my obsession with all things Longhorn.
There are other message boards?

I think people on this site need to keep the info we rcv on this site only. Bobby, Jeff and Dave do a great job of getting info and I think by members posting on other sites is disrespectful to their work.
I have been a member of rivals since it was called Bobby Burton rivals 100 before it was a pay site. When I want recruiting news I come to hookem247 and when I want TMZ news I go to rivals. Please respect both companies and not post the info you receive on a competitors site.
My only source of all things Texas sports.
I am also 100% certain that the Orangebloods mods have subs to this site. I can't recall the details exactly, but there was a point in time two years ago (it may have been junior days) where this site was scooping them so badly that Suchomel and Ketchum were making threads about commitments with no confirmation from sources, and obviously posting them in reaction to Hookem's scooped. I teased them about it and got permabanned...
Guys, I'm not trying to get people to stir the pot here and I don't want that to happen.
All we ask is for people to properly name our site if they're going to use our information. I don't think that's asking too much.
That is the point, guys. Attribute your sources. It is only appropriate and fair - regardless of the source.

Why post it on other boards at all? Why do it?
What is funny is when an poster posts Hookem info and lists it as TOS it usually pisses off posters wanting to know who TOS is.
Bobby you should just change your name to TOS. That would really piss off the bastards at orangebloods.
Its amazing how bad you guys scoop those guys. They have poor sources. They litterally get there info off your site
You call the people over at OB "bastards" just because you've been banned 7 different times.
Good point, as I am a member of only this board I do not post any of your stories on other sites. Though I have posted information on the board that I have collected by using other sites. I should probley try and do a work cited after those post. So that people can also see where I got the information. Plagiarism is a bitch, but everyone deserves their credit
