    Why should we pay 20-25 dollars to advertise your site. You should give them away to the members.

    leadarrows....I think you are right, I have had a few people in the last day or two tell me about the same thing you told me.....

    J&R....if you do not want to buy a shirt, no problem....but give a shirt to the members for free? The site itself is already free and then you want me to spend another 6 figures on handing out shirts? I swear, if I had the money I would do it in a heart beat... But if you read through threads of old and new, people often ask for site merchandise to show their support and pride

    I agree with this.... I can't see spending that much money advertising your site. While I do understand that the shirts shouldn't be free (because they aren't free for you) I don't think you should be charging that much extra for them. I buy shirts for my company all the time and they are between $7-$10 so I'm sure your not paying any more then that. You've gotta make some profit, and I do appreciate the idea, but I'd rather wear my own shirt for that price.

    I'm sure the shirts and mousepads will look great.
    However, do you think you will be able to get any smaller sizes?
    First thing matt said when I told him about them, he says, "What about all the little guys?" He's an XL but, I'm sure there are guys that are smaller. And hey what about me? I'd like a medium. ;)

    I agree about the price.....I am going with a sponsor (who made the shirts) and the shirts are very high quality, so no need to make money...

    XL and up is what I started with but I am placing a new order with all sizes except small....

    I will try to get a picture on the site of the shirts tomorrow.
