    After hearing the replay of Howard talking to Mutt about shutting down SFN, I was curious if that request was cutting into Mutts Livelihood? Which of course Howard didn't seem to give a shit whether it made money or not because he gave Mutt "a Show", Which I'm sure Mutt can retire from that 1 Hour of work!!!

    Anyways, to the point, How much money could a Forum like SFN make?

    Nothing. Bandwidth costs a lot of money, advertising brings in pennies. Mutt does have a day job, you know.

    So you're calling Howard a Jew? Hater.

    He hired some chick in Cali to do the advertising for him....and he makes a few sheckles from that, but PB is right, the donations don't cover the cost of bandwidth.

    He was about 2k in the hole last year.....from what my spies tell me.

    I heard Monk is as deep in bananas and poo flingings. Dawg choose on 24k biscuits and pays a illegal chihuahua to sniff his balls for him. They must make a fortune here.

    The extras involved in hosting Schmoopy's stolen gifs alone could feed 7 third world countries for 11 hours. True story.

    I heard he doesn't even get paid for Superfan roundtable, plus he has to pay to go up to NYC each week. I always paid my supportership the day it would expire. Howard was very hateful about Mutt and the site, Howard makes me sad. He gave the people that work for howardtv gift cards to fast food places as Christmas gifts this week. :rolleye:

    I'm not. There was the Christmas party last night at some place but as for gifts the gift cards were it, big fat Jason Kaplan was saying on the news he was glad to get something but he does miss the days when they got fossil watches and special ipods. Jon Hein handed back his gift card to Burger King since he hates that place.

    I'm thinkin HS needs to set up a trust fund for whackpackers, since he's only exploited them and made untold millions off em, I mean, it's the fair thing to do.

    I don't think Mutt makes much, if any, from SFN. He's not paid much attention to it for several years. I don't think he'd even leave it up if it wasn't his ticket to SFRT and the other benefits of being around Howard. It wouldn't surprise me much is the new SFN is a really toned down version.
