Forum Rule Question

Is it against the rules to post Colts merchandise for sale on the forum? I lost my job and have some nice items I need to sell.

I believe it is against the rules to do so. I believe the only links to purchase merchandise that are allowed are ones endorsed by the NFL, so that would include things like NFLshop.com and any team's proshop website. Perhaps another mod can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe those are the rules we have in place in terms of selling merchandise.

Sorry to hear about your job loss. Hopefully things pick up for you soon!

Sorry, and good luck. Too bad the forum doesn't have a "swap" section where members could post items. I can understand the liability issues though.

Ebay... Craigslist... or the neighborhood grocery store bulletin board.

Btw, have you read The Doors of Perception? I always wanted to, and may still. Just asking since Huxley is in your sig.

I heard that's how The Doors (the band) got their name, from that book. Jim Morrison read it and the rest is history.

I lost my job and have some nice items I need to sell.

Regarding the suggestions that others have made. I've sort of looked into this. I would search and read about all the on-line sales/auction sites before proceeding. Lots to learn. For example, Craigslist is free, but it's also very localized. That can be a good thing in the sense that you can complete the sale locally without worrying about shipping or waiting to get paid, but it's a bad thing in that there are a lot less eyes seeing the ad and that you have to make sure you don't get clocked in the head when you meet the buyer. It's also an incredibly primitive site that is unpleasant both to list on and shop on. I suspect that most of the time if you don't get interest from people in the first couple of days that something is listed, you are unlikely to ever get interest (although you can keep bumping your ad to keep it current). Also I suspect that since people know what Craigslist is, they are expecting/demanding even bigger bargains than they would elsewhere.

Ebay is much better in most regards (other than the shipping issues and risk of payment problems), however there are substantial fees to use it - some of which are incurred even if you don't sell anything. When you need money, committing yourself to paying fees with no guarantee of a return is a gamble. From everything I've read, "it isn't what it used to be". A LOT of people who loved it in years past simply detest it now. There are numerous other competing sites with lower fees, but of course they have less people shopping. It used to seem like everyone and their uncle was happily using Ebay to clean out their garage, but I don't think that there is a whole lot of "happy" left in it anymore.

Good Luck.

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions I am very familiar and a seller on both Ebay and Craigslist. This is the place were I would want to share with other Colts fans opportunities to purchase Colts related items. Mods perhaps this is something to consider in adding a sell/wanted/trade section.

Oh come on man, couldn't you mention that up front? People were responding to what sounded like a cross between naivety and desperation, and now it turns out that you're an old pro. I have better things to do with my time.

There is a VAST difference between " I lost my job and have some nice items I need to sell.", and "This is the place were I would want to share with other Colts fans opportunities to purchase Colts related items.". The first makes me urgently want to help you. The second just makes me want to wash my hands.

      I think Belichik made an error 2 weeks ago when the Patriots won the toss and took the ball. I think you want to be on defense first in a championship game ..because everybody's nervous and its easier to play 'nervous' on defense..    ..and to get the ball staring the third quarter is gold

      There are some who would say money is the source of their problems.  To most of us, it's simply a tool. But others, the whole "love of money is the root of all evil" really takes hold.

      Do you have a good highlight of him in coverage? Every highlight I've seen has him simply lighting people up. 
    • Manning HGH Accusation - Update
      'Did it?  Did what?  He has not been accused of anything.  What if he was a broadcaster....? Would the same speculation be valid...? To suspect someone because of somethings sent to aid to his WIFE..........assuming it was sent to him.........because it makes a better football story.......is smart...?.   Treat Peyton like anyone else.  Al Jazeera NEVER said Peyton used HGH..and he has never tested positive. There is no evidence (drug tests)  at all that he did and no one says he did. they just included his wife's delivery in a story about doping athletes. Its all speculation based on something sent to his wife..and that's what especially bothers me...   I don't really understand why HGH, human growth hormones..are used by women after pregnancy. I don't know what it does for them....but anyone who took 30 seconds to look it up knows that it is used Its advertised on TV. To blow up the fact that HGH was sent to her nationwide..invading her privacy and casting shade on her husband as an illegal (in a football sense) drug user is a 'double whammy' on them dropped by a guy who doesnt know them personally, apparently had nothing against them....he was just talking.   Manning isn't Mathis but we lump them because they play football?.. Its not smart at all to look at 2 football players and because one of them did something,.accuse another of the same thing with the strongest link being, well, they're both football players.  That's very lazy thinking.
