I used to be jealous of Arron Afflalo

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
It's the booking, it's the talent, it's creative, it's having an aging Vince McMahon being the sole caller of shots, it's the fucking God awful commentary that destroys everybody else to put over Michael Cole, it's the developmental system, it's the effect of no competition, it's the residual effect of the death of the territories, it's everything. Nobody is going to prosper in that environment, at least not to the degree they need them to. All this change everybody keeps talking about, none of it is going to mean anything if the root of the problem isn't solved first. CM Punk can scream about being and brining change until he's blue in the face but if the rest of the company isn't prepared to move with him, it's all for nought.
Commentary is a big fucking problem. And it's even worse that Stanford and Striker are both great at their job and being left off for people with no chemistry together and no chemistry because of this Cole bullshit. They're purposely making the booth blow. I like the developmental system though. There's alot of promising guys down in FCW.
I still think the roster has the talent, but they need more bookers and less writers. Still needs some writers but less of them. Like whoever the fuck was that thought one of the more talented divas needed a farting gimmick should be axed.
