Hum interesting thread, to say the least. I assume that I was one of the "offenders" who prompted you to make this poll and this post because of my BIG OLE' ROSS banner and my staff position listings (that would fit)..... I find it disappointing and frustrating, to say that least, that anyone even give a rats ass who has what in their signature or what avatar they have. Heck Jason, your avatar could offend someone that had a loved one burned in a fire or committed suicide by dumping gas on themselves and lighting the match.....I see that as much worse than using Ross, Bowtech, Hoyt or whatever in your signature or avatar. People laughed at your new avatar on another thread but I see it as different in regards to being completely inappropriate in comparison to this topic. The use of another brand name is not likely to have deep emotional effect, unless of course the person seeing it has some negative action associated with that particular item. What about all the people that advertise all the products on their bows that are not Mathews branded? Is that not along the same lines? I shot Mathews bows, many different models, for the better part of my life and they have, do and will make one of the best bows on the market today....arguably the best. In my case it was simple, I was afford the opportunity to shoot for my store, with Ross products, and I chose to accept the offer, proudly!!! I put that fact in my signature because I was and am, again, proud to be given that opportunity. The same holds true for the other sponsors and positions I was granted. It is not meant as an insult to Mathews or any other product but rather to display something that one is proud of, like getting that buck of a lifetime mounted. I could go on and on about this thread and this topic but do not want this to be an AT type thread. These forums contain some of the best and nicest people in archery, most of whom give outstanding advise freely. The fact that we have digressed into this thread saddens me...... To refrain from any further controversy, I have removed my signature completely. So in essence, my friend, you win because it is just not worth it to me to even be in the middle of this. Nothing good will possibly come from it. Peace
