Commissioners: Please add this to report headers

We've had a few complaints from parents of prospects who Google their kids' names and have OOTP online league pages pop up. This confuses them, of course, and then they contact us asking that we pull their kids out of the game.

And they do have a point, especially if the ratings associated with the kid are poor, and they worry that scouts will see those pages and be affected by them somehow. (Scouts probably won't care, but as a parent myself, I understand that these people want their kids presented in the best possible light.)

Since there's no sense in online league player pages being indexed by Google and showing up in search results, we'd like all commissioners to add the following to the HTML code at the report headers. This will prevent online league pages from being indexed by Google and will alleviate headaches on our end.

Will this be done by default for OOTP16 online leagues?

I've had a few emails from people myself. Not parents, but fans saying stuff like 'I don't remember so and so playing for this team' or 'didn't so and so retire in 1997?'
