Not enough info to debug here, and whether it's PHP vs. Mongrel shld be 

Short of that, here's something that works.  If I state that the backend

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName soccertackle.com

  RewriteEngine On

  RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} www.sockertackle.com
  RewriteRule ^.*$ http://sockertackle.com$1 [L,R]
