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.

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.

(10)Selling of items, including game tickets or Colts merchandise, is also prohibited.

Please note, we advise our members NOT to enter into any transactions with other members. If you choose to do so, you assume all risk for your choice

    • Excellent question. I believe the guy is a fraud.
    • Ryan to me is the epitome of a spoiled rich, Olympic athlete who doesn't believe that normal rules of society & codes of conduct apply to him. He should not have gotten drunk, ransacked a gas station bathroom in Rio, or lied to the police, which embarrassed himself, his sports colleagues, his sponsors, & his country.    Was Mr. Lochte shaken down for an illegal bribe from what he thought was a local police officer? Maybe. I will give him some latitude here since most visitors in a foreign land have no idea what law enforcement officers typically wear uniform wise & if Ryan believed the man was a cop & paid him some money, I could see how that would confuse a celebrity to comply with what looks like an authority figure, especially if you are intoxicated on top of it.    Was it a stupid thing to do? Yes. Should he have lost endorsement deals over this? Yes, because his foolishness overshadowed all the winning US athletes achieved there winning prestigious medals & you have to conduct yourself in a dignified & professional matter when you represent your homeland abroad in the public eye.    Is Mr. Lochte the devil? No, of course not, but lying to authorities comes with a heavy price as an Olympic athlete as it should & you have to be sincere when you show contrition for your actions meaning no smirking, laughing, or joking when you apologize & explain how you know now what you did was a mistake & a gross error in judgment that cannot be tolerated under any circumstances whatsoever.    Will he ever swim professionally again in the Olympics? No. Do I feel sorry for him? No. But SW1, he was drunk where's your compassion? To that I say this, I'm sure all participants in Rio were briefed on how to carry themselves, what to expect there, & what to not do as athletes representing America; & he chose to ignore those helpful guidelines willingly. He should have known better.    Should Ryan be ridiculed about this behavior in Rio for the rest of his life? No, that's just cruel, & I do wish him future success away from the pool later in life. However, he never swims for the USA ever again in the Olympics. That's my position on the whole situation.  
    • I would say Indy should just wait until cuts and claim player help at CB, RB, and OLB.
    • Fingers crossed that this signing works out like the last minute Mike Adams signing that most people thought was a waste of time because of his age.
