Re: Ratings obsession?
I think people should have the right to follow the ratings if they want. They just don't have the right to demand other people do, nor do they have the right to force and/or demand that people choose their favorites based on them.
I been judging wrestlers by the amount of entertainment they brought me since 1990. Ratings were never important until Eric Bischoff started gloating about it on Nitro. There's no more Nitro, no more WCW, so we should have been gone back to a time where the shit isn't relevant. Technology has made it less relevant in real terms over the years anyway. The only original indicator of "drawing" that is still valid is attendance, because you will always need an audience.
