beta-7, shut the fuck up, period.
Posted by: CJN at July 14, 2003 02:38 AM
oh my god, this is suck a piece of shit. Just stop this hoax, its so fucking stupid. A game is the reason you can't ask a girl out? HA! I think it's more likely you are a pussy with a tiny dick.
Which seems more likely?
Posted by: CJN at July 14, 2003 02:40 AM
Get of beta-7's dick you fucking dickriding faggot with a pussy for your mouth.
Beta 7 has done nothing to you, and you wanna clown him?
Maybe your just too happy sodomy is legal.

Wow, that was the dumbest thing I have ever saw. More gameplay vids please. Thanks to football-gaming.com this site has no more vids. If they didn't piss beta-7 off then we would be watching REAL videos of the game not this blackout shit.

I have proof that this is a hoax.
a page was forgotten about when this website was put online, here is the company handling this website:
GMD Studios [gmdstudios.com], a "groundbreaking new media production firm based in Orlando, Florida".
The person directly linked to this page is a person that goes by the name of Jim Rhoades, he is the Vice President of Media Development & Creative Director of this company.
Nice try guys, some of us can do detective work though, and you were too lame to delete the files in question in time.
Really funny hoax at first, it got dumb quick, and this is why i'm dropping the bomb.

Posted by: PROOF at July 14, 2003 02:57 PM
how do they have beta copies of the game then?
Posted by: unn at July 14, 2003 03:08 PM
Nice work PROOF. Hmmmm.....another thing that makes me wonder is that beta-7 claims these disks were from march, but yet from the movies I saw from fldude2k1, the rosters have all of the rookies from the april draft, intersting. I have proof that beta-7 told me Rob, his friend, "stole" these beta disks from sega in march. So either beta-7 is a filthy liar, or sega just so happened to guess what players would be drafted to each team. Sega is not a mind-reader and they didn't know what team was gonna what player in march. This here is solid proof of a lie and there is no dogding this one beta-7. I have proof that you said that this disk was stolen in march, then you just recieved your modded x-box a little more than week ago. Then you made copies and sent some out, one being fldud2k1. Well after viewing his movies I realized this. So beta-7 did you personaly update these players into the game and give them ratings??? There is no way that sega would have drafted players in a march beta disk. Or maybe you have a june/july beta disk that sega let you use to put over the internet for marketing. I could go on with more info, but I think the truth has already been revealed.
Posted by: EVEN MORE PROOF at July 14, 2003 03:19 PM
Nice detective work along with my observations of the videos realeased.
Posted by: GOOD JOB PROOF at July 14, 2003 03:20 PM
i might as well mention the files in question that led to the decision that this is quite obviously a hoax
an example archive url looks like this
but you might notice that the following ones are missing:
this is because these contained the information that led to the absolute proof
thanks for playing boys, the hoax is revealed, now stop trying

Also, this idiot beta-7 claimed to have shut off the power to his server -- but this very server is located in rackspace.com which is located in.... Texas.
Not everybody is stupid.
Posted by: PROOF AGAIN at July 14, 2003 03:24 PM
read the blog, moron:
They stole the Beta copues on JUNE 19th you f'ing idiot.
This calls into question EVERYTHING YOU SAY because you have NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKINMG ABOUT.
Posted by: PROOF THAT PROOF IS A RETARD at July 14, 2003 03:27 PM
You failed to prove me wrong, but you might have proved my friend in crime wrong, but I'm sure I'll have more information to dump shortly, I am researching.
Posted by: THE REAL PROOF at July 14, 2003 03:29 PM
Proof - I'm not who you think I am, but I do some freelance web design in Orlando and would appreciate if you didn't screw up my relationship with the people that hire me from time to time. I'm a college student and I'm not vice president of anything for anyone. But, no, my real name isn't "Rob" anymore than your real name is "Proof".
Posted by: Rob at July 14, 2003 03:30 PM
If I am wrong then prove that you are not a retard.
Posted by: PROOF THAT PROOF IS A RETARD at July 14, 2003 03:33 PM
Rob -- What made you assume I was referring to you? What web-design has this site had? It's a damn BLOG backend. Let me dig through the blog's source code and see what I can reveal that might be of use to me.
Until then, have a good day kiddies.

Hey, "REAL PROOF"
Keep digging all you like. You're not the only one that can dig. Would you like for me to share your IP address with the world?
Also, since I'm sure "PROOF" will make a big deal of it, I deleted one of his messages in this comment, the one where he posted fldude2k1's home address. Pretty lame to go picking on him, and unacceptible to be posting people's home address on the Internet. Do it again and I'll just ban your IP address (it's nice and easy since this is just a blog.)
Posted by: Rob at July 14, 2003 03:45 PM
NOTE: the place where this "beta test" took place is a 2 minute drive from GMD studios... coincidence?
i will be trying to call the owner of the 7033 sta point court building to find out who was renting the place, if anybody, at this time.
peace from windsor.....
Posted by: THE REAL PROOF at July 14, 2003 03:46 PM
I say we hunt this beta-7 character down and grind his penis in a blender. That would be most enjoyable. Pussy.
Posted by: at July 14, 2003 03:47 PM
i beleive that fldude received a copy of 2k4, but i beleive this was known by sega
he seems to be a.... hardcore gamer, the perfect kind of person to send the game to -- hyping it up for release.
posting my ip..... what will that accomplish, me getting a new address via dhcp? yeah, very productive.
me > you
lets not make this personal, lets just make it me vs. lame viral marketing taken too far
not a big deal to delete the post anyways....
peace from windsor...

I would also like to point out that GMD is too hosted by rackspace.com, coincidence?
Posted by: THE REAL PROOF at July 14, 2003 03:54 PM
this is getting to deep for me
Posted by: woah at July 14, 2003 03:55 PM
In another shining example of ultimate stupidity, THE REAL PROOF says he is going to call the building to see if who was renting the place. again, READ THE BLOG THAT YOU ARE CRITICIZING:
Obviously it was some sort of scam, you moron.
Posted by: MORE PROOF THAT THE REAL PROOF IS A RETARD at July 14, 2003 03:57 PM
scam or not, somebody had to sign to rent the room. i will refrain from swearing at you, although you are quickly pushing me to the limits. please figure out what you're talking about before you go spouting off, it makes you look... well... not too bright (to put it nicely).
"sunshine survey systems" never existed, and its funny that out of 25 or so "beta testers", there is no mention of it anywhere. even scams leave a little paper trail.
peace from windsor (kisses and hugs)
Posted by: THE REAL PROOF at July 14, 2003 03:59 PM
oh man i just had a thought that THE REAL PROOF probably is an employee of SEGA!
It has to be a SEGA employee cause no one else would spend that much time worrying about it.
Posted by: xwingman at July 14, 2003 04:00 PM
I really wish i was :-(
sega == elite

Posted by: THE REAL PROOF at July 14, 2003 04:01 PM
i think u are a sega or vc employee. u have to be otherwise why spend so much time researching?
hey the real proof please tell your bosses at vc to forget about this crib bs and work on gp!

I have mailed you as per your request, and asked for what you want, but explained i couldn't prove that it was me.
I will be gone for the day, the night... i invite everybody else to expose this viral marketing.
"repping windsor" ;-)
Posted by: THE REAL PROOF at July 14, 2003 04:23 PM
Sega wouldn't support mods or rip on themself like these guys have... PERIOD
Posted by: what proof at July 14, 2003 04:33 PM
Is "repping Windsor" like being the Queen's pimp or something?
Posted by: not_a_limey_or_a_frog at July 14, 2003 04:39 PM
Well, I think you guys with the "proof" should all just pipe down. Even though it's marketing, it's one of the more original ones we've seen in a while - surely you'd rather this than "the third place"?
Posted by: Nik at July 14, 2003 04:40 PM
ya keep talkin all disbelievers...you just bring more people in ;)
Posted by: what proof at July 14, 2003 04:42 PM
I think this is a bunch of disgruntled lowlifes that got fired by sega and are trying to get back at them when in reality they are doing the opposite.
Posted by: at July 14, 2003 04:46 PM
I really don't care who it is.... I like it..peopel are jealous from it and it's good marketing....nobody can change that
Posted by: what proof at July 14, 2003 04:47 PM
No shit it's marketing Proof. What you don't realize is that you're a participant and that you're helping to spread the virus. The more you fight the more you help propagate it.
Furthermore this exact type of campaign has been done before. It just wasn't very effective. My interest in it comes from how effective this one has been. While this site itself isn't on fire with discussion about the game,there has been a noticable change in public opinion in regards to this game series at message boards all over the net. All in less than 2 weeks...impressive.
Posted by: marketing major at July 14, 2003 07:18 PM
Where's all this GMD shite coming from Proof. Sounds like you (who are possibly a paid employee of VC/Sega) just made that up. It's not hard to look up a internet company in Orlando -- but where's the 'proof' their tied together. Sounds like you're making your own leads.
If you have ever built a blog before you would know you put up a few tests blogs while you're building it to test the look and layout of it. Then you delete them. I've done this several times. You KNOW nothing -- IDIOT!
Posted by: gfys at July 14, 2003 08:19 PM
gfys we all know that you are beta-7. By the typing and who has made a blog several times, yeah right. You are beta-7. How many people use a double hyphen. Beta-7 does the same thing in his blogs. Just out of curiosity how many blogs have you made??? Not the everyday person has 10 websites where the get the luxury of making "several" blogs. Nice try trying to impose as beta-7. Get a life.
Posted by: at July 14, 2003 09:43 PM
You caught me with the 'double hyphen' which is actually called a dash. I also use periods and question marks and commas too. WOW! Look at all the similarities. You make no sense. First you say I am beta-7 then you say I'm trying 'to impose as beta-7'.
Here's an English lesson for you so you don't look uneducated anymore: Use a dash (--) to signal a sharp change in thought or tone. Not a freaking hypen (-).
