Re: Who has ownership of FGB?

Wow! Start off with choice words about HQ and their motives and end up with a personal invitation to an audience with Greg and staff!

Count your lucky stars, Phil!

I am so happy to see this response from you, Coach Glassman. This should be a message we all take to heart as affiliate owners. We should have no unhappy customers if we can help it.

Re: Who has ownership of FGB?

This is why things should be settled with a phone call or an in-person chat and not on a public forum, where things are said, apologies made, etc. Just like Facebook, more harm than good is done by voicing opinions without a real discussion taking place.

Kudos to Coach for reaching out and making things right.

Re: Who has ownership of FGB?

Why do people always, and I do mean always try to villify CrossFit HQ. Yes there are some things that I do not agree on but that doesn't cause me to just start saying they are a profit driven heartless machine, its a business isnt it supposed to make money???

How come no one is talking about how completely disrespectful it was for SportsGrant to just up and send lawsuits to these CrossFit affiliates that they sued? And I may be out of the loop, but I doubt they called the affiliate and said hey you know you can't do that because we trademarked it and by doing so completely took away the open source portion of FGB to begin with. There is outright disdain and hatred for HQ but not SportsGrant WTF people? Coach cared enough to respond how come the SZ guy hasnt? Whatever either way from what has been shared here the case looks like it will be in HQ's favor which I think is the way it should be.

Haha. I know right.

Actually, I really hate CrossFit too now that I think about it. It's all about the money. Let's have lunch Coach so we can talk about it!
