Sexy Friday has some site news

Sorry to throw a kink (heh) into Sexy Friday, but we've got a problem kids (besides the Habs' crappy play). Earlier this week FHF received a letter from the Canadiens about our little corner of the internets. We've screencapped it for you (with certain info blurred out) so you can be up to speed on what's going on. Click on the pic if you need to make it bigger to read. Go ahead and read the whole thing, I'll wait.


So, um, OK, now what? Well, we still have a few days to figure this out, so in the meantime we're testing out the "new FHF", Four Hockey Fans. You may have noticed the new header, and we've gone ahead and made sure we can have that URL - here it is. The four(-ish) of us are still deciding how to handle this. Of course we have a bunch of lawyers around here so we're thinking of fighting it, but it may not be worth it. If we can still be FHF, what's the diff? Anyway, we're still discussing it at FHF headquarters (over drinks of course). You can leave your thoughts in the comments. We'll keep you updated as to what we plan to do. For now, keep using this URL not the new one.

In the meantime, this will not spoil our Sexy Friday! As a lawyer I advised myself to not do this, but the Club already found questionable content, so it's probably irrelevant at this point. And I've got Kate Upton in some sort of semi-nude Guess video. How can I pass that up? Happy(-ish) Sexy Friday everyone.

Ha, ha...April Fool's Day! Hey, we're your readers and you know us readers ain't dumb, right?

Good try though and happy sexy Friday.

Fucking CDHC creating some serious bad juju with their mean-spirted campaign. Way to disenfranchise the true fans assholes. I just watched the corporation for the first time last night. I fucken hate this corporate world.

I hope you lawyers can come up with a loophole, or better, grouds for other sites to fight this greedy-ass fuckity fuck polluting the last boyish enthusiasm I have left for hockey.

four CHabs Fans?
Four Club Fans?
Four Montreal NHL Team Fans? (FMNHLTF? Buttman might like that one)
Four Beer Company-owned Corporate Sports Franchise operating out of Montreal Fans?
Four Team with the Most Stanley Cups Fans? (FTMSCF?)
Four Canadien Fans?
FourCHFans?
Do Govern Yourself Accordingly?

what numb pricks.

you got me! har! (I hope!)

Sal Paradise said...

Son of a bitch. It's too early in the morning...you got me too.

I was even preparing to search out Me. Blahblahblah , Vice-president des affaires juridiques and write a scornful letter in your support.

Nice.

I will now proceed to take out my revenge on my students.

moeom said...

Are you kidding me? I have been fighting for a week now for the UAE, im in Dubai, to unblock the site only for me to read this post. Really gutted man. FHF for life.

Oh they had blocked to site for inappropriate use of words and im currently the ONLY laptop allowed to come on the site.

Anyway, i hope things go well and im sure dropping the HABS word wont stop you from keeping the wonderful job.

Sonia said...

Niiice Poisson d'Avril, FHF!

But I'd still like to see a lovely, snarkolicious, profanity-laced reply from you guys.

Anonymous said...

Four Habitants Fans forever! A name by the people for the people (even if it was coined by the French).

Daddy Says said...

Maybe "the Club" should focus on the play of its team and not the content of the blogs that support them? I know you guys posted about HIO having the same thing happen... and if it is April fools then fine but I still think that its crap. You don't make money off the name? no adds and such.

Stupid broons can't beat the leaf. WTF? wait what half naked girl on the screen gotta go.

Long Live Inappropriate Blogging and Unauthorized Behaviour !!
Praise Allah !!

subtlepower said...

Why not just change it to fourhabfans? Drop the S off of Habs.... still means the same thing...

vw: rereo.... On a diet and all I see is food everywhere.... I was sure this said OREO...lol

Steve said...

From a street level lawyer viewpoint, I hope you have those mouse in a bottle ready.

What fucked up world we live in where Habs can be trademarked, whats next Hockey, Fans, Four, thats why you should give careful thought to Mr Molson's Vagina. Would Four Habitat Fans pass.

I would tell that asshole its inappropriate to pay the Mexican't 8 million a year, govern yourself accordingly.

Ryan McClean, Biggest Habs Fan on Earth said...

NOOOOOOOO!!!!! I need my Stripperific Previews!

Steve said...

From Steve
Vice-president des affaires naked
Club de hockey Canadien puck bunny
Emily loves tradmarks and has her tits trademarked

Tamee want to consult a lawyer on that.

Steve said...

I wonder if the Leafs have trademarked the Buds? It is pretty lame the Habs was not trademarked until 2003.

I remember Carl Brewer trademarked the Leafs and almost gave Harold Ballard a third eye.

iRiRi said...

You got me.

b said...

How in 2003 could the Club de Hockey Canadien trademark a nickname that had been in use in the anglophone community since a New York City sportswriter named Tex Ritter coined the phrase? I think we should be looking at caselaw. I think, to use a highly technical term, they are blowing smoke up our ass. I don't think they control the nickname and I think it has been in the public domain. However, for US purposes compare The Pillsbury Company v. Milky Way Productions, Inc. 215 U.S.P.Q. 124 (N.D. Ga. Dec. 24, 1981),; see also Hormel Foods Corporation v. Jim Henson Productions, Inc. here http://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-2nd-circuit/1344381.html but beware of the Mutant of Omaha case- if all else fails change the name to 4SaintedFlannelFans

bea.habs™.fan said...

this is ridiculous over the top corporation BS.
Maybe fans should also stop chanting go Habs go at games.
hell maybe we should stop supporting them - it's not like their playing actual NHL hockey.

well now I'm in the shittiest mood ever and don't even have the PMS excuse

They call me Reef Halliday said...

They won't let you use the word "Habs" anymore, that's ok with me. I just won't spend anymore money on the team. Oh and Canadiens inc. FUCK OFF AND DIE.

Steve said...

Stupid question, why have you removed the CH mask and other labels but left the Talk about the Habs pants? Do you think the Habs lawyers are as razor sharp as the rest of the front office?

Steve said...

While an existential crisis envelopes FHF, I expect they have the finest crisis management team from Tokyo Power under retainer.

Last night was fasinating for Habs playoff hopes and fears.

Toronto beat Boston
Thrashers beat Philly

They bled, we can kill them even with the system and girl slap shots from the boards.

Ryan McLean, Biggest Habs Fan on Earth said...

Kate Upton is about the Hottest thing on the planet.

Can't believe you guys are gonna be FHF instead of FHF.

Oleg Petrov said...

Hook, line and sinker. Very amusing. Almost helps me forget the team is in a tailspin.

marcintouch said...

Completely fell for it, believed every word of it.

Steve said...

@Ryan great point, when I think of FHF I will just pretend in my mind they are still FHF.

Steve said...

@FHF, I have been randomly burning lawyers cars and breaking their windows if this is just a April Fools joke I am going to have no defense.

soperman said...

If they really want you to habs out of the title, they will probably come after you for the "Habs" in the tag line. (to talk about the HABS duh). Totally believable April Fool's joke.

Wv - "pigness" as in "the stupid broons could not beat the equally stupid leafs, your pigness". (that is what I call my boss, but noy to her face.

Boob Gainey said...

This is an outrage of Patrick Roy trade proportions.

Make'em sue you. It will only increase traffic and make them look like idiots.

b said...

By the way, the Pillsbury case involves a cartoon wherein the Doughgirl ( Milky Way's (Screw Magazine) invention) was performing fellatio on the Doughboy. A perfect fit, don't you think?

BigFAtBurt said...

this has to be real cuz there is no way you guys are smart enough to pull off a prank like that. What do you think Steve?

Steve said...

I think the collective mind has the capability, but the inherent inertia associated with social drug, alcohol and masturbation would preclude the effort necessary to fake the letter, and set up a new web site.

It has taken a lot of effort for me find a level of trust that allows me to open up a little and I am afraid that I might not have that comfort level on a unfamiliar web site. I might change my name to Steve.

Steve said...

Does anyone know how to trademark Steve? I would not want anyone using my name in ways I thought were inappropriate.

Orangeman said...

I guess this proves who reads the comments above before posting. Or in Steve's case, before posting several times.

Speaking of Steve (or moe, or 29, I forget who we decided was using Steve as a sockpuppet), I would have been more easily fooled if you instead posted a Cease and Desist letter from his employer.

But this was totally beleivable. I feel as though the Habs don't love me anymore so it followed that a letter from a lawyer would come. At least that's how all my other romances have ended.

Orangeman said...

In real news, Marchant made a golfing jesture to the leaf last night. While I usually support any mocking of the leaf, I find it 'interesting' that PK's celebration (the exact same celebration as any other player) after on OT goal was discussed and analysed on 4 different roundtables on CBC and TSN while this obvious rookie cockiness almost went unnoticed except for some (unnarrated) interviews with Wilson and 2 other leafs.

The good news is the leaf came back to win the game so both teams got to be humiliated.

In other real news, Patches is back on the ice!

Mcdoooooooooogal said...

@Orange Bravo for pointing out the Marchand shit. I was thinking that to myself and literally said if Subban had done that we wouldn't hear the fucking end of it. Fuck Boston and that kid Marchand Im glad Subbs fucking drilled him with his back.

Alain said...

Lawyers don't send threatening emails.

Le Douze said...

I read this this morning and immediately assumed it was an April Fool's prank. (Probably partly because I had just come from my other morning site, the dirty old man site with the naked pretty young girls, and they had just done their annual April Fool's prank - which was an obvious one... I mean, I know they don't do implants, so it must be a prank.) Anyway, then I got to thinking, and I started wondering. Are they smart enough to think that up? (Well, maybe, at least if LG wasn't too hung over.) Are they not so lazy that they would bother to set up a new site just for April Fool's? (I don't know, that's a tough one.) Where are the more videos of Kate Upton cavorting enticingly in her birthday suit?

Anyway, to make a long story short I didn't make it back here for a while. (Who knew how many European lingerie companies have video clips on Youtube?)

Still haven't figured out if I think that the Habs have actually come after the FourHabzFans or not. But I've definitely decided that an almost naked Kate Upton beats an almost naked Rob Ford.

Moey said...

Ha! I was thinking about that last week with the HIO fiasco. I was wondering if they would go after blog sites too. Well mine's as clean as a whistle, after all fluffy kittens and cartoons could hardly offend anyone, n'est pas? On the other hand the actual content (or lack of) could be deemed offensive by die hard serious hockey fans and by people who actually know what they're talking about. *nervously scratches head*

Anonymous said...

I'm still not sure if I should believe it or not. I can't believe you put that much work on a joke and with the habsinsideout change it makes me believe this real. Still why did you post that today. Arghhh !!! Stupid April fool's, I should stay home and look at the best of Marisa Miller photo shoot the whole day .....

In any case, long life fourhabsfans even habsless!

My call: This is joke ... they would not mention the "high-profile media outlet" in their e-mail

Steve said...

If it was a joke they would have spilled the beans by now, I think the Habs have already taken other actions, they are washing jock straps as I comment.

LeBuuuut said...

I imagine this is a joke since the higherups haven't been participating in the comments today. However if not, how about making Habs into H.A.B.S.

Hockey
And
Babes
Site

(Or any other wittier combination.)

Steve said...

I get letters from lawyers daily, and the letter looks very official, of course they are lawyers, so in concluding I as usual have contributed nothing to the discussion.

BaconAddict said...

Four 'abs Fans?

I am sure plenty of people already think that's what it is....

AceOfSpades said...

Totally, completely fell for it. I came here to post my enraged comment then it all made sense.
Man, I love this blog.

Steve said...

If I was advising one of my clients, no bull.

1) this is not joke
2)If the gazette surrenders, and they buy ink by the barrel, its going to be a Tsumai for FHF.
3)Who gives a fuck, its not a brand its a place. The readers are not Leaf fans or Bruin fans and they can change the bookmark.
4)I like the Habitants or Habz, and I would run down to the registry office and register these, and sell them to all the others.

Steve said...

I fear the FHF is suffering from some kind of post legal ruling tramu. They thought the real Habs found them useful, and now they are battered by waves of cognitive dissonance. Fuck they hurt worse than a towel to the balls.

So what we all need to do to get them back on their meth, is tell them how much we love them, and how much joy they bring to being a Habz fan. I will start,

FHF after a long period of disengagement from the pro team that plays in Montreal and has won lots of things you could drink from, I found your FHF website, and then all my childish emotions came running forth and I once again was silly in love with my team. Against all odds or reason I began to post at this site, and found the real joy and companionship you can only find as a electronic avatar on the internet.

Number31 said...

People who pull April Fool's pranks get punched in the gut.

Marchand's been pulling that shit all year and no one ever talks about it. Cocky doesn't even describe it. HE should be the poster boy for Don Cherry's "someone's gonna get him" crap but Cherry wouldn't dare call out a Bruin. (What's more weird is he's actually a good friend of PK's...though I wonder if that friendship will last for much longer). BEST GOLFING GESTURE was Andrew Conboy to the Marlies in their last game of the season, and it was quite the appropriate gesture to those arseholes because they were eliminated from playoff contention weeks prior and were being all cocky in a meaningless game where the Dogs were resting their top players. Pick your spots, Marchand or someone will pick it for you.

I'll root for the Habz no problem

wv: culastan - where McSplooge gets exiled to

Doogie2K said...

I like that there's a "kill all the lawyers" tag on a site that's pretty much all fucking lawyers.

(Since everyone else is too busy with the obvious joke.)

HabsFan29 said...

so anything happen in here yesterday?

moeman said...

Kate Upton happened.

GYFHABSG!

Orangeman said...

The only people worse than lawyers are people who are up at 819am on a Saturday.

Good to see you were not eating pizza

Breaking News

FHF in civil war about the nipple.
Reporters are reporting its been a long time since we have seen nipples on sexy friday. In fact the nipple may be behind the heinous legal action by Geoff Molsons Vagina, to rob FHF of the FHF.

Stay tuned for more or less nipples.

Anonymous said...

I don't understand why the team would be against content such as this... It is certainly more stimulating than the product on the ice has been recently.
Go Habs Go

sadhabsfan said...

I wuz gonna watch this game again on Canadiens Express to see what I missed while dozing, but Leon Russell is on SNL.

Flying Toaster said...

God dammit! I haven't come to this site in like a week so i read the posts to catch up, and i read the April Fool's one and i thought it was serious, until i read the comments. Man did i feel like a sucker there :P

But if you guys ever have to change names, it HAS to be FourFabFans.com I will accept no other substitute!
