  • Mass 247 Cancellation Movement

    Will it do any "good"? Who knows. But no self-respecting ND fan should support a network that employs people this unprofessional who actively work to the detriment of ND. This goes beyond Justin Hopkins unabashed trolling and antics. Remember JC Schurburtt's vitriolic anti-ND rant on national radio that he had to make a public apology for? These are the people in power at 247.

    Cancel your subscription and post here when you do. A social media movement will be following tomorrow, including distribution to other ND boards. Even if it's only temporary and you plan on re-upping in short, a mass exodus of subscribers in response to recent events will send a clear message that this conduct is unacceptable.

    Because they intentionally make it hard to cancel: E-mail customer support at support@247sports.com and provide your name, user name and e-mail address associated with the account. If you want to avoid a subscription renewal, you must cancel 72 hours prior to the end of the then current subscription period. If you sign up for a free trial or take advantage of an extended free trial, you must cancel 24 hours prior to the end of your free trial to avoid automatic charges associated with beginning your subscription. 247Sports customer support is staffed between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM (CT) Monday – Friday. Put "Cancellation Request" in the subject of the email and provide a short reason for cancellation.

    There are many great alternatives out there to 247, including Irish Sports Daily, Rivals, and Scout. Do not hesitate to take your business elsewhere.

      I'm cancelled.

      I haven't posted in a long long time.

      But I'm a goner.

      With Sapp gone, it died there.

      Fuck Oregon. Fuck Hopkins. And shame on Loy.

          Showing that grit that Restoners are known for! WOOT!

          BTW-I cancelled a few months ago. That has to count for something.
          I have invested everything BUT tuition for Notre Dame. I make no apologies.

                              I signed up five minutes ago and cancelled right after.

                              Not sure if any effect was had.

                              But I wanted to feel like I was a part of this movement.

                                I'd cancel were I a subscriber.

                                I'm a joiner.

                                What's the beef?

                                Do I give a shit about bloviating rectums?

                                Nope.

                                Not when I know more truth than they do.

                                    I've been cancelled since Loy had been on the beat for about 2-3 weeks. Shame I couldn't bolster any metic of cancellations from this latest round of shameful conduct.

                                        Don't forget to tweet this movement.

                                        Instant attention.

                                        In fact, someone ought to tweet it to Loy and Hopkins. Let them know what they're in store for soon.

                                          What about ad revenue? IE probably sends a lot of clicks their way for player profiles and free stories

                                                Obvious, but make sure you make your 'reasons' clear.

                                                  Right they probably make 2/3 of their revenue from ads by using free stories. If we don't click on that shit they may lose ad revenue.

                                                  Its crazy because you get the same info from Rivals, Scout, ISD, etc.

                                                  Fuck you 247

                                                    Not sure how, but when people search 247sports on google lots of negative feedback pages need to be on the first page. Some of you geniuses here get to work!

                                                        I was considering a while back to join there. Now I'm not. Glad I found out about the shady dealings before I pulled the trigger.

                                                                          Looks like IE just became Anti 247.

                                                                          If you click or post anything 247, a dude comes to your house, punches you in the face, kicks your cat and bangs your mom.

                                                                          You really dont want this happening do you? Do the right thing...

I didn't like the way Loy went about his business, and I especially didn't like the way those douches were tweeting on NSD, going overboard in making fun of Rivals bs their site crashed. I mean, tenwork the same beat as Sampson and Prister, and that shit was out of their control, and you're going to take to twitter and rip on them?

                                                                                        I don't do twitter but when I heard that, that was it for me. That showed their true character, the character that is shining through today. .

                                                                                        But great movement Lax and I hope it catches on.
