Even Trying to Do Something Good...

The Nats Marketing can't get out of their own way.

So the Nats are offering a chance to win a suite or other great seats. Or are they? After filling out a survey obtaining so much demographic information that I think I provided dental records to them, I clicked the link they said to "Enter Here", and this was what popped up. Good work, Nats.

This was the link:

    I just clicked the link from your post, ran through the survey, and submitted my entry with no problem. So I'd suggest that perhaps your browser is the problem here. What are you using? I submitted the survey from work running Windows, but I have had problems with mlb.com sites from home, where I run Safari on a Mac, ever since mlb.com revamped their web software early this season. Can you access any content at all from nationals.com or mlb.com using the browser that couldn't handle this survey? If not, then it's your browser that messed up the survey. And for that, you can't blame the Nationals. They are stuck with the mlb.com framework for all web stuff, and it's mlb.com that's your problem.
