I think the trolling comment was in regard to your claims of “it’s not that hard” and “YOUR FAULT” and “take some freakin personal responsibility”. When you know sometimes it actually is kinda hard to watch it live.

Surely you understand how some people can be very quickly and extremely offended when someone says something that doesn’t necessarily come across the right way. Even if that wasn’t their intention.

 

 

"Not that hard" was a term used by Mr Nom when blaming Flo for not hiding the results of Final X and ruining his anticipation.

Fault was assigned to Flo by Mr Nom for not hiding the results of Final X and ruining his anticipation.

He clearly stated that by not hiding the results of live events that Flo does not care about its viewers.

 

Neither of these things are the responsibility of Flo.

Flo's job is broadcast and to report the results of these events.

 

For someone to blame Flo for doing their job is ridiculous. If someone gets extremely offended that their own decisions are the reason that they were unable/unwilling to watch a live sporting event then that's on them.

For clarity in case you missed my previous post, I don’t disagree that it’s silly to expect Flo or any other outlet to hide results. Was just strictly guessing at where the troll comment came from.

I am more than happy to spend 150 bucks a year knowing I may or may not be able to see the wrestling. If they are not going to post the videos right away and not tell anyone, it is fine by me. FLO is awesome! All their announcers are underpaid.

It is my pleasure to donate my money to Flo because without them wrestling would not exist.
MAGA!

I don't have a solution to spoiler alerts. i understand fans don't want to know the results until they are able to watch, but we also have to 'report' results and add color to what happened. and the one's who haven't yet watched are in the minority. 

 

as far as the "Match 1 vs Match 2" thing - i did label them as such in the description beneath each video.

 

i suppose i should have titled them that way instead.

How about just putting the entire broadcast up as one event? Very simple

Willie - thanks. Yes, just a tweak to the name would do wonders.

Thank you.

Some on here are blowing this out of proportion. There are easy routes here no matter what some say.

I wouldn’t mind having that options too for events like Final X or the championship finals of other major events.

Awesome. Thanks for posting it and making us aware. I was in the middle of a return from vacation 14 hour drive when it aired living, so glad I can watch the full recording now.

look at Flo doing the damn thing...

 

but seriously, if you guys were so inclined... a simple No Spoiler linc that could be bookmarked and gone to instead of going through the main page of the site might keep the whining down... clearly, it would take a little programming... i'm too stupid to know how much, but, it might be a consideration to bring up at the next staff association meeting...

Yeah, it does make sense.  Something like:

 

 

http://flowrestling.org/nospoilers

 

or

 

http://flowrestling.com/full

 

Where people can type the URL in without needing to go to the main page.   Would be simply full matches for all the main events by date.  No followup interviews on there, news links, etc.  Like LJB I have no idea how tricky that would be to implement into your current web design package but I think it could get some use.  Can see it being super useful during the college season as well.  Saturday morning just go right there and watch the results instead of reading about them.

 No other sport streaming site does what you're asking.

 

--Every WatchESPN video ever is available without a clue as to the result.

--NBC Sports /nbcsports app (especially for their niche, English Premier League soccer) automatically posts match replays with scores hidden and lets you click if you want them revealed.

--Big Ten Network for everything, the same as NBC

--TrackWrestling, if you go into the video archives and not the brackets, has every video by round and combatants' names with no spoilers (and searchable)

 

 I agree that Flo provides a great product, but it's not an unreasonable request to have a way to view content without a score or headline attached to it. Virtually everyone else does it, actually.

 

Thanks, Willie and others, for reading these boards and other feedback!

You are correct.

Its not unreasonable to make that request.

 

"Simply caring about the customer would make the experience a lot better."

 

Implying that Flo does not care about the customer however is not reasonable.

When you compare other sites archives to ours and say they have 'no spoilers'

 

i'm not sure i understand.

 

if you go to the event page and click on videos, the titles are simple "Daton Fix, TMWC vs Thomas Gilman, TMWC"

 

i'm not sure where you're seeing the score

I'm guessing the "spoilers" would be the post match interview videos of the winners.
