All of a sudden a week ago I became unable to access the sports website bleacherreport.com. Whenever I attempt to access it, I get a 403 Forbidden. Request forbidden by administrative rules. This is happening on all of my computers on my network. I even tried accessing it on my phone, first using my 3g. I was able to connect. Then I turned on Wi-Fi, connected to my network and tried and was unable to connect, receiving the same message. So I guess the problem is with my router? So far this is the only website. Thank you in advance.

I manage several websites. When we block an individual IP address, that is what the person at that IP address sees when they try to access the page.
We block IP addresses when we believe that it is a scraper or other type of malicious bot. Maybe there was some behavior from your router's IP address that made them think this. Maybe they just don't like you Maybe it was a mistake.
In any case, contact the webmaster of the site for an answer.
