This is not exactly true, I have heard that some members of the Dallas media do check out the fan sites on a regular basis.
If they see alot of threads discussing a certain topic, I would not think it would be unreasonable that the media would pick up on that topic and maybe discuss it in an article or on their radio show. Of course they would never admit they got the idea from a fan site.
So to say that a fan site like this one is totally meaningless is not true, it does have some degree of influence (even if it is a very small degree).
