  1. Don't get me wrong, I don't begrudge @Journeymen charging a ten spot for the streaming of the event on top of the tenner that I pay to Rokfin, but even Journeymen feels a little unsure of the justification for the extra money. Under their PPV details they make a few points: 1.) you need a Rokfin subscription to purchase the PPV, and 2.) PPV subscribers get access to all Rokfin premium content. Of course this is wrong. You get access to the premium content with the subscription, not the PPV. It seems a bit disingenuous to claim access as a benefit of the PPV. Like they are trying to hard to justify their up charge. Just own it. You are putting on an event for profit. Quit making false claims as a justification, and listing the justification under "details".
  2. I thought youth athletics was already designed to extract currency from families, winners and losers alike.
  3. This wouldn't be pay to play. Pay to play is an NCAA concept where the school cannot "pay him to play" outside of well understood boundries. This would be professionalism, and I have no idea what, if any, restrictions the NCAA would currently place on that.
  4. The ONLY other answer? Not even you believe that.
  5. Don't forget jail time. This is so dumb.
  6. The difference is that wrestling is a pseudo team sport where one athlete has no ability to directly impact the performance of another athlete. Any time a "team" score is a simple sum of individual scores, you will get this dynamic. By calling it a team score we try to simulate the team dynamic, but like all simulations, it is never the same as the real thing. All that is my way of saying, meh.
  7. He wrestled the first two matches. Tweaked his knee against Willts in the first 30 seconds of that second match, then sat out the next match.
  8. My favorite way to tweak a Brit is to let them know soccer is a British term. Gets them every time.
  9. I'm with Jim Gaffigan on this one: Hospital
  10. While we are at it, it sounds weird when Brits say maths, even if it makes sense (short for mathematics). But it drives me bonkers when they say Goldmans, Merrills, and Morgans, instead of the singular (and no this is never done in a context to suggest possesive).
  11. Just finished The Data Detective by Tim Hartford and would recommend it. Moving on to The Black Swan by Nassim Taleb next.
  12. I work for the accounting firm of Dewey, Cheetum, and Howe. What seems to be the problem?
  13. If I find out Chad is short for Chaddeus, I will be very disappointed.
  14. I thought I read this five times somewhere.
  15. Again. You say it like you have some first hand knowledge. Which I doubt.
  16. Kind of wild to think that over the course of 6 days Julian Ramirez loses to RSF Matt Lee and then beats returning champ Shane Griffith.
  17. Or so we are told. It's not like PSU wrestle offs are streamed or anything. It has just been repeated enough that it is taken for gospel.
  18. I empathize. I'm two fat 130 lbers.
