    I agree 100% AT. is a archery forum for all archers where this forum is a mathews forum!!!

    AT is owned by Martin and Bowtech throws money into it also.

    AT. is a website that was set up through many many sponsors. Martin and bowtech as well many other companies pay money as a yearly fee, so it is a open forum or public like mathews. So it is not just a companies forum it is more than one comapany that puts into it where mathews is an individual company.

    I’m for the freedom of expression….and that should be upheld as much as possible.
    This is a place for the exchange of thoughts and ideas. If somebody needs their
    brandbashing or brandbragging, so be it.
    Who cares???

    Maybe they just like Their brand of bow and This forum.

    And BTW I appreciate Hoytboy here very much. I like him,
    and the way he proudly carries his Hoyt here.
    Good for him. Good for us.

    couldn’t agree with you more. it is a public forum, and controversy brings conversation. we all can learn from it.

    Your poll is somewhat skewed. Is yes right or is yes wrong?

    I voted yes. As long as people aren’t bashing the bows I shoot I really don’t care what others shoot nor what they indirectly advertise in their avatar! [=}=]

    I am sure there are allot of decent bows out there, we have chosen Mathews for whatever reason each person decided. This whole forum to me is to make me a better archer by listening to everyones tips and comments no matter what bow I shoot. Just because I might like another bow, doesn’t mean I am being disrespectful to others by having it as my Avatar.
    Now if they had the little Calvin sticker, you know the one where he is p@@ing on Mathews name, that would be disrespectful.

    The poll shouldve read, yes if Im right and no if Im wrong. But I didnt read through it and I see the problem.

    I see more than one guy running around here with a BIG Ross logo in their sigline and an a Ross avatar. I guess the overload of both is just a little low rent in my opinion there I said it. Maybe an Avatar is enough. I’d like to see those who are saying I think they should be allowed ought to try that on the PSE Forum or the Ross forum and see how long it works out for you. Or put a link in your sigline to a manufacturer that doesnt sponsor AT. If you notice Mathews doesnt even let their own dealers put a nice logo promoting their shops.

    I guess I get tired of that and “Staff Shooters” and the infomercials we get blasted with. A recomendation from an uncompensated customer when someone asks a suggestion is one thing but it just aint what it used to be around here.

    One last time, I just wanted to add this IS NOT ABOUT WHAT BRAND PEOPLE SHOOT. Its about respecting the people at Mathews that gave you this place.

    I’m primarily on this site because I shoot a Mathews bow, however, folks on this site seem to be very mature and display good Outdoorsman comeradery. Other forums I have been on seem to have a lot of bashing about choice of equipment.

    What I value the most is the tuning and setup info that you guys have shared with me. I have used this info to set up my bow to perfection. By myself. Thank you so much. Everyone.

    I don’t realy care what you guys shoot. Thats your business. I value your opinions on the gear you have used and your field testing results. It saves me money and allows me to make informed decisions.

    If you want to put your avatars up go ahead. It doesn’t bother me in the least.

    Good luck hunting.[/quote:1o96azke]

    have had some time to give this post more thought . i think i would like to make an amendment to my first reply . this is a mathews web site , not ( insert another archery co. name ) . and i think that brings up respect ; i personaly really don’t think to much about people using this forum to brag up their other brand . i personally don’t know what mathews co thinks , but it would be in comparison to you going to your church and having other denominations enter in and start touting that theirs is the best , latest and greatest . i would hate to see this site end up like the ” other ” site. so please gives mathews the courtesy and respect that they deserve . i think all are welcome , just leave off all the other co.’s logo’s and things relating . keep the integrity of this site.

    I agree with you about the infomercial part of it. I frequent AT quite often, although have never posted there. I always get a kick out of the promotion of some products, that quite frankly, are garbage. I know because I bought one of the rests because of the hype it received over there, and was so disappointed in it that I returned it. And no, it wasn’t even the Limbdriver or the Whammy.

    Last one out turn off the lights!

    I am going to say your wrong.

    To me personally its fine. I think competition helps drive the archery business, without it we would of been fine with the Mathews Standard. As members of this forum I believe its our duty to help people find what is best for them If some one likes to shoot a bowtech, for whatever reason is unclear to me :^O , by golly let them shoot the bowtech and express it. Maybee sombody will stumble upon this site and see the bowtech avatar and go shoot one and happen to like it over a mathews. Stranger things have happened, like…..ummmmm…………well I can’t think of anything right now but it could happen.[/quote:x1985dwt]

    I understand what you are saying Jason. :thumbup This is the way i see it, and I have made a few avatars for people here, that were other brands. :oops: As long as it’s allowed, and they aren’t bashing Mathews, or just causing trouble, then I really don’t it matters to Mathews, heck you never know (and I have seen it happen in the past) shooters of other brands have came here, and before you know it are converted. :D :D I do think that having 400 pixels by 100 pixels banners in your sig. is going alittle far though…
