Ad in the FSView

Fellow TNers... I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of all the negative trash going on around Twitter. First was all that garbage during OU week. Now, following the loss at Wake Forest, all our beloved athletes shut down their Twitter accounts (and many of their Facebook accounts) to cut themselves off from a small handful of ignorant so-called fans. The fact that the players felt they had to go that far disgusts me. These young men VONLUNTEERED to wear the Garnet and Gold for Florida State. They could have gone to any number of schools and gotten a quality education while playing football, but they chose us. And for that reason alone, we should support them in all they do throughout their lives. Sadly, we can no longer counter the garbage that was tweeted to our 'Noles due to the cutoff. But I still feel a need to find them and let them know that they ARE, in fact, appreciated for everything that they do. So I contacted the advertising department at the FSView to inquire about rates for taking out an advert. If we so desired, we could sign it on behalf of Tomahawk Nation (with Bud's approval, of course) or use individual names if the group is small enough. But I feel this is something very important that must be done. Our guys can't be feeling very good about themselves at all right now. I want them to know we still appreciate all that they do. EDIT 1: I got an email from FSView staff. The minimum cost is $180.05 for a BnW ad fitting roughly 3.28" x 6.25". The maximum cost is $2061.65 for a full page color ad. (Yikes.) Some more... appropriate... prices: Half-page - BnW $893.33, color $1168.33. 1/3 page BnW $595.55, color $810.55. 1/4 page BnW $443.20, color $603.20. EDIT 2: A PayPal account might be the easiest way to collect funds for the ad, but there is a cost. PayPal charges 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction. (Ex: $3.20 charge on a $100 donation.) That cost isn't particularly high, but it is there. If there is an interest, we can choose someone to create and manage the account. (I volunteer, btw.) My wife is a graphic designer, so we can create an ad amongst ourselves and decide what we like free of charge. That cost, therefore, should not be factored in. Just the cost of printing the ad. All ads must be submitted by 5 pm one week prior to printing. So this won't get out anytime soon. Let me know what you think.
