Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

Blair,

I think you're conflating two different things. There's trademark abuse and "dissent" - they're two separate issues.

People have tried to hate on CrossFit while simultaneously making money off of the brand. CrossFit Inc. has no obligation to allow people to make money off of the CrossFit trademark while hating on it.

When it comes to people outside of CrossFit Inc. talking about CrossFit, both positively and negatively, there is a LOT of this going on. I've seen stuff on the websites for SB Nation, CNN, and Forbes, just in the past week, not to mention untold amounts of discussion on blogs and social media. Clearly, CrossFit has no problem with other people talking about it.

Which might mean a 3rd party site not connected to CF might actually be feasible.
That came to my mind mid post.

So it will probably come in time. Not yet. Having the Olympics this year right after the CFGames kind of keeps it in the limelight for only so long.

Considering it has roughly a similar season to Hockey, it has a decent chance.

You may want to contact someone at Crossfit HQ or Crossfit.com and ask them.
So is the forum ownership separate from the main page ownership, or not?

Stu,

CrossFit Inc. owns both the main page and this forum. I believe that Camille was referring to the fact that different people manage the everyday operations of these things.

Cool. Thanks Russell, I appreciate the reply! Management is different but the boss is the same, got it.

So... Threadbump. I'm having a hard time finding it, but does anyone have a link to the video of the 12.1 Burpees workout of the person who had their DOG do the workout? A link would be much appreciated!
