I'm in the process of deciding what to name the website I'm getting. I'm lucky enough to have a design company willing to do all the design work for me in order to help market my team and have pretty much narrowed it down to podiumbound.com or olympicdreams.ca. But what would you think of someone with a website like olympicdreams.ca on a jersey because it is almost a little tacky and corny? Anyone have any other ideas? Olympicdreams.ca is reasonable for me because I've already had a lot of success but unfortunately my teammates who although have a huge ammount of potential haven't quite enjoyed that yet.
Thanks for you input!

I have heard lots of stories of the IOC suing and shutting down anything with their name on it.

When the Olympics were in Calgary in 88 they tried to shut down a restaraunt in Toronto called the Olympic Flame, that had been in business for over 20 years.

Just something to think about.
don't post your possible domain names on a newsgroup....mixinbeatz

some yahoo will buy them all and charge you $500 to get them back......
I know a guy who used to do that, he owned names like walmart.ca and dennys.net and other brand recognized sites and would put up porn on them. Then when the corporate lawyers saw the sites they would freakout and buy the domain names upwards of $10,000.

I hope you are at least a cat 2 or have placed well in jr's nationals. Otherwise you will be in shock when you race the big boys. Now that pro's race olympics, amateurs have no chance of qualifying. Have you raced many national pro races yet like the Saturn series? Has anyone from the USCF invited you to Colorado Springs for testing and training? Dreaming and marketing are good, but without solid national placings you will find it hard to get noticed. I don't want to discourage you but you have a tough road ahead.
