Transplanting The FishDuck Community To Another Site: My Vision for Going Forward

Lou Farnsworth Announcements 24 Comments

When Charles announced, (Tuesday July 20th), the end of daily articles on FishDuck, only one of two paths forward were available. Either the community that had emerged surrounding the FishDuck daily articles and FishDuck Forum would melt away and drift elsewhere; or an effort would be made to keep our community alive. Charles made it clear that any effort to preserve …

An Open Letter to the FishDuck Community

Lou Farnsworth Announcements 28 Comments

Dear fellow FishDuckians, Tuesday July 20th was a sad day for our community, with Charles’ announcement regarding the future of the site, and his dramatically reduced involvement in it. The good news in all of this, is what happened in the blog below the article. I spent most of Tuesday reading all of those comments. I was impressed not only …

The BRAND is Changing: For Oregon Football and FishDuck!

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Announcements 27 Comments

The Oregon Brand has changed with the massive improvements in recruiting, which the fans love, but that change has also marked the demise of the high scoring offense that made Oregon known nationally, which a great many of us have lamented. But let’s face it folks: the recent extension of Coach Mario Cristobal‘s contract has cemented Oregon’s new “tough” label.  …

FishDuck, like Oregon Football, will PAUSE and then RETURN

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Announcements 47 Comments

The pause on Oregon football has been beyond frustrating to us fans, but there is excitement as it returns. This website, FishDuck, is now following a similar pattern, but will have a much longer pause than Our Beloved Ducks. In short, this is the last article on our current schedule, and we will not be publishing every day any longer. …

Your Feedback Please: Yellow Background and the Direction of FishDuck.com?

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Announcements Leave a Comment

Whoa!  Is that background of yellow on the site bright or what? Is it too much? As many of you know, this site is going through a ton of updating and improvement and I would love your feedback.

Charles Needed a New Look…so he CHANGED THE SITE!

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Announcements Leave a Comment

An aging Mr. FishDuck cannot change his look, but he can change the theme or appearance of the site! The photo above was taken at a UO Job Fair four years ago and I’m seated with Pat Pannu, who wrote over 100 articles for FishDuck.com over her college career.  I enjoyed working with her and with another Job Fair coming …

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Announcements Leave a Comment

“So … do you have a big enough seat belt for Wednesday?” I had to laugh at the question from fellow Duck fan and Greybeard, Steven A. Smith, an attorney in Modesto California. He’s right, as it has already been quite a bumpy ride and while we hope for no drama today–you know there will be some! Let’s just hope …

“Translated” DVDs! Local Sports Editor, FishDuck.com Writer, Makes an OREGON Movie!

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Announcements Leave a Comment

You like to root for the good-guy, the local fellow who works hard, is honest and someone the community can count on, and in this example not only is Jerry Thompson that man, but he has also created a movie “Translated,” that features the state of Oregon and highlights Lane County. This is a fellow Duck fan that I ask …

Holy Crap! Kayvon Thibodeaux, No. 1 Recruit is a DUCK!
