I have good news. I spoke with a gentleman from SFX Baseball earlier today and he told me that I can continue to operate MarianoRivera.com as I always have! Unfortunately, though, he was not able to tell me that this would always be the case. So, I don't know if this will become an issue, once again, at some point in the future. I expressed this as a serious matter of concern to me and I asked for something in writing and was told that that could probably be done, so hopefully I'll be able to get that to help ease my mind and the security of this site.
I want to make it clear that I don't enjoy airing out situations like this. I did so because I felt it was necessary. The conversation was opened with a threat and, being a good fan site that is 3 and 1/2 years old, I felt that I was treated inappropriately
. And that is what I wanted to bring light to. Nothing else. I hope that it's not something I have to do again. I would like to thank SFX for, in the end, allowing us to continue - hopefully, forever. Though I'm not sure if it's possible or not, I would certainly like to have a positive relationship with them moving forward.
So, for now at least, this situation is over and we can continue being the #1 fan site for Mariano Rivera. I'd like to thank everyone that helped and supported us during this situation. That includes Adrian Padill, Franklin Gomez, Lee LeFever
, Dave and Aziz Nekoukar
, Ben Martin
, David Askaripour
, Matt Schweber, Whitney Hoffman
, Jonathan Bailey
and Michael Singer. I'd also like to thank Ron Blum.
Thank you all.
