If you notice though, he is hardly ever pushing his/their product. Most of the time he is there just to help out......not sure what you beef is??? Would it matter if his screen name was something other than "Team Gopher"? He has provided many valuable links which I have done business with. By the way, I have never purchased a Gopher product, if you are interested.

Team Gopher is a paying sponsor around here. Not only does he help pay the bills that keeps this site running, but he is helpful to the members too.
Keep up the good work Team Gopher.
Oh and J Haugner, enjoy the free site.

Stupid thread, I have never seen him push his products in the threads. What I do see him do is take his time to do searches and then post the links. It would be nice if some of the newbies would try the search button first.

Good way to open a can of worms. The guy has done nothing but try to help us. He did put together a company profile for my company and send it to the local papers trying to get me some free publicity. Cost - nothing. He will answer any questions he can, and doesn't push the software, unless the thread pertains to software issues. And even then he is very low key about it.

Keep up the good work Gopher.

I have nothing but good things to say about TEAM GOPHER

Oops, did I post that real big so that everyone could see...Good.

I too have never bought anything from Team Gopher (yet) and they have been more than helpful. They also wrote an article on our business, which was published in The Landscaper, and also has helped a lot in posts and marketing ideas.

Thanks for bringing up this post so we can in fact show how much we appreciate TEAM GOPHER's help

Team Gopher is an excellent source for information. Before posting something you have no idea about, complete a search and view some of the valuable information he has provide. BTW his search ability is excellent and way more efficient than mine.

By the way, I have never purchased a Gopher product, if you are interested. Owner of Quick-books Pro and QXpress software.

Team Gopher has been nothing but helpful to me. I dont get your beef with him one bit. I gotta say, if Team Gopher did something to tick you off, you probably had it coming. Team Gopher is the man on this site and dont you forget it either.

Yeah, I thought about that too. But as you can see, Haugner is definitey in the minority. Team Gopher will see that the members do appreciate his efforts and posts here.

I completely agree that Gopher is a great poster. As a newbie, his links have pointed me in some great directions.

Now if he were to wedge his way into every thread with "Try a set of Gopher blades" and give no supporting info as to why...

Oooops, by "blades", I clearly meant "software". :angel:

Team Gopher has got to be the most positive guy on this site in a world of negatives. I have never even seen a hint of a negative comment from him.

Oh yea I never bought anything from them but I got lots of ideas about flyers,etc. from their site.

Keep up the good work.

WTF are you talking about?

Gopher is Johnny on the spot with greats links to threads, posts, websites and other valuable info that is ALWAYS appropriate and applicable to the thread at hand. Very helpful.

I have a feeling you're trolling, Haugner. If not, you need a chill pill :)

Next time you knock on someone's door to try to sell your lawn service to them - I hope you will be greeted with the same level of disrespect that you have shown Gopher. I have found his posts to be informative and helpful. Some people have nothing better to do in life than to stir up *hit . Get a life ! You Go Gopher Man !!

:) I've said it before and I'll say it again. Sponsors pay for their advertisements here, thats what keeps this site free. Gopher may not push his product but by God he has every right to, he is a paying sponsor. If I was paying to sponsor, I'd use this tool as much as could. Same goes for all the other sponsors on lawnsite. If you don't like it just skip reading that post.

I can't believe I'm even responding to this idiotic thread but I need to say like the rest of you that Team Gopher is first class.....and has always been enormously helpful to all of us here....and I have yet to spend a nickel with his company.....but I will be soon and I will be darn sure the Gopher logo shows up on my threads.

J Haugner
10-09-2004, 01:26 PM
First, let me apologize to Team Gopher. Obviously they are a valued source of information. You are all right this is a free site and it needs sponsors. This thread really must make Gopher proud of all their support.

I apologize to Team Gopher for not realizing all your help you provide to others.

Let me say it was the commercialism and logos that got me. But given further thought we all put our logos on our post. So maybe I was having a bad day.

Gopher had a lot of passionate support about all their information they provide and I deserve most of the replies I got… But, this guy.....

Hey Jhunter that's POT-KEETLE-BLACK isn't it considering how you bash eXmark....remember they are a sponsor also! And again for the record I am not taking up for "my" brand as I use Toro.


Good for you J Haugner for coming back on here and correcting your mistake.

Actually, this post really should have been wiped right out of the thread. It has no meaning and no business being on here. This is a professional forum, not some teenage chat room. THIS is the exact type of stuff that is turning many people away from this site, and to other forums. We already have had to stop my girlfriend's younger brother from viewing here, which is a shame, because he is an aspiring good kid who is just trying to take an interest in what we do in this industry. As it is, my girlfriend doesn't even BOTHER to get on here anymore for these same type of posts. For those who MAY be saying. "Oh well, no big loss", It just so happens that some of MY posts that have been complimented as being good ideas by other members, or being good info, were posted by her.
I don't think I am alone here, in saying that if Jodi or someone else took a little bit of time and extra trouble to sort through this thread and delete out that post and all quotes of it, this place would be that much better for future readers who happen to come across this thread (and it WILL be alot!).
Thanks, Jodi,... for all you do. Also, just to the point, Thank you TG for all you have done for everyone you've helped, and J Haugner, it IS big of you to appologize.

Team Gopher participates just like any other member. Just because he is a sponsor doesn't mean he can't be one of us. As for as the Banners in his post, I have a Gopher banner in everyone of my post too.

JHaugner..Kudos to you for being man enough to apologize....we "men" often have too much pride to do so

as far as Greasyguns comment....like you said Runner...this is the kind of post that makes me nuts as its all too clear of a reminder of some of the goobers that are in this business (if in fact they really are)

I also agree that this kind of post with that kind of language needs to be removed...period. Sean may own lawnsite, but many/most of us also have an interest in its success (or failure) and cursing regardless of how the words are spelled should not be allowed to be viewed and the person who does it should be dealt with accordingly

Sorry greasy_gunn, but I had to ding you on this one. You had good intentions, but the language is uncalled for. There are a lot of kids on this forum too.
