    I see this supposed prank mentioned here a lot, but what was it? I don't remember it from the old shows and I neve frequented SFN. Just curious.

    Turned out that Mutt was the spokesman for Subway. No one saw that coming.

    It was when Mutt got a bunch of new tools for the site to prepare for the large influx of new Stern fans from watching him on AGT.

    And no, I'm not joking.

    ETM was complaining about SFN on the show and Mutt acted like he shut down the site. In reality, he took several weeks to migrate to different board software. When SFN reopened, Mutt called it a prank. Funny, huh? Quite the sense of humor. That was the start of the actual demise of the site.

    I thought OP was talking about the [you] code. When Mutt first unleashed this, early in SFN history, it caused quite the brouhaha.

    IMO, the beginning of the end was when Howard started acknowledging it during his promises of a revolution.
    Mutt got a taste of Howard's cock, and thought he was one of the big boys. Remember him sitting in the audience with his fat wife during the roasts?

    Even before the prank, SFN was already caving to Stern as Mutt started pulling threads upon Sabean's request and prevented people from typing in Sirius CEO Scott Greenstein's name. Mutt also once started a ridiculous thread about his great experience using the scam HSS advertiser Beezid auction site.
