I... don't watch spring baseball? I'm just saying you're a purist like my former colleague Tim, who has great difficulty distinguishing between exhibition and official events, what's driving both types.

This is an exhibition in the sense that it has no meaning past just wrestling...

as long as they do that, what more can anyone ask for?

I don't have anything more to ask for, but as I mentioned non-fans and ambivalent fans might appreciate more.

at some point you have to accept the reality of the situation...

wrestling is a niche' sport and it always will be in this country... getting worked up about it does no one any good... the people who are inclined to appreciate will and the rest can kick rocks because there is nothing anyone will ever be able to do to make them change their minds...

the can stick to basketball or spring baseball... it makes no difference...

wrestling will survive without them...

Sooo, no need to grow the sport, support wrestling as a niche sport like croquet (once an Olympic event). Got it.

You're the only one who seems to be upset here. Stop trying to pivot away from the topic. Why is it so detrimental to add an incentive for scoring and action, even if it's at the expense of technicality, in a just-for-fun event card - particularly one where guys won't really be going as hard as they would during OTTs? Or is that an issue from your purist vista also?

I don't really identify with the name-calling, esp from someone with your use of punctuation. :D Engage and plug back into the discussion.

LJB is right we gave Flo an incentive in the form of our subscription dollars and it certainly has not improved their performance.

It's OK, he's a purist, the broken livestream is part of his technical appreciation of it.

"Just because" and "sigh, it's fake" aren't rebuttals.

the broken live stream is not ideal... 

but, i have such great conversation here i hardly miss it...

these wrestlers should fake their match to make it appear more entertaining to someone who doesn't care about wrestling anyway!!!!

If based on a point differential rather than aggregate scoring, that would eliminate collusion.

So you’re telling me had they told Jordan Oliver he’d get 10k if he won the match vs Nolf and 1k if he lost he wouldn’t have wrestled more aggressively?  Please. 

Yes, that is exactly what we are saying.

Again, you fail to explain yourself and fall back on name-calling. Pretty weak.

karen, i have explained myself over and over... you just don't like it and have nothing better to do tonight... 

so...

enjoy...

at some point the matches will be back on and i will not feel compelled to bother with you anymore...

BTW, strippers don't really like you...

just an FYI...
