You have no favorite boards.
It is not enough to boycott sponsors and cancel subscriptions to magazines. You also must contact the magazine and tell them the reason you are cancelling your subscription, and contact the sponsors to advise them that you are boycotting and telling all your friends to also boycott. If they are unaware what is going on there will be no effect from a boycott.
As an aside, I cancelled my subscription to SI years ago when their columnist in the back of the magazine ridiculed athletes who professed their Christianity. I sent a letter to SI and told them the reason I was cancelling. They sent a "letter of apology" to me and asked me to give them another chance. I did not, and will not, resubscribe, although I get a "special rate offer" from them a couple of times a month.

I started mine over two years ago, don't miss slimebaum one bit.
ON TO VICTORY - STRIKE UP THE BAND
It's time for Fiinebaum to go and take his hatred with him - it's so CLEAR that he's anti Auburn and would kiss the ground at Bryant-Denny! Go AU win, lose or draw! WAR EAGLE!!! And you can forget getting Jay Jacobs doing anything about it!!
No boycott....the best thing to do is ignore. If every AU fan would ignore PF and treat him the way he !deserves to be treated...as a Know nothing... AU outrage only helps him...he follows the bad publicity is better than no publicity philosophy...Ignore, and that will start to hurt his ratings and thus hurt him where it counts...in the ego
I will support the boycott including sponsors for the biggots program.
Let me just say this. Any Auburn fan who reads or listens to this scumbag is as guilty as PF. And the absolute worst possible crime would be for an Auburn fan to actually call in to the guy. The best way to deal with a lowlife like PF is simple: boycott his sponsors and boycott his programs.
So here is a copy of my letter to SI
To the Editorial Staff at SI:
I have observed that you carry online columns by Paul Finebaum. Mr. Finebaum represents the gutter world of sports yellow journalism. The fact that you carry his tasteless and unprofessional junk reflects very poorly on SI. I am extremely disappointed in your lack of good judgement. SI is obviously not the publication I remember from earlier years.
So please do not bother to ask me to renew my subscription when it expires in April. If Finebaum is your idea of a sportswriter, then I'm not sure I'll even bother to read any further issues; however, my neighbor has a rabbit and needs something to line the bottom of its cage.

Here is my reply from SI:
Dear Mr. "AuCat",
Thank you for your frank comments. Your letter will be shared with the editors.
Dear Sir or Madam,
So please do not bother to ask me to renew my subscription when it expires in April. If Finebaum is your idea of a sportswriter, then I'm not sure I'll even bother to read any further issues; however, my neighbor has a rabbit and needs something to line its cage.
