      The pictures on my site were either scanned by me or taken off ebay.

      I have created a separate page for each player using info from scotts book
      (as he already knows), your site (as you already know), media guides, and
      asking this list. etc. He thinks I am stealing his player info and
      pictures. I've noticed that I have a few pictures that he has because we
      are using the same sources to scan the pics (game programs), he seems to
      jump to conclusions when he sees someone else has a picture like his. either
      that or he thinks he's the only one that has these pictures. He is also
      harassing webmasters of other Jets sites.

      My site: http://www.wpgjets.com

      His site: http://www.jetsarchive.com

      My site has also been up one year longer than his has so its more like he is
      using my ideas etc.
