All I know is that when you have a history of not drawing on the road, spending $700,000 per taping (Dixie's quote) isn't common sense. That's not a vague rumour. That's stone cold fact from a interview with PWTorch. She said the cost, we've seen their house show numbers. Put the two together and its a moronic decision. Spin it how you like, they totally fucked themselves. Also, when you are doing a 1.2 on Thursdays, going head to head with Raw DURING WRESTLEMANIA SEASON after you spunked millions on the likes of Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy, RVD and Ric Flair wasn't a very smart decision either. Its hilarious how much people will spin TNA's poor business decisions like nobody knew this before hand. Going on the road, signing Hulk Hogan, hiring Vince Russo and moving to Monday Nights (not forgetting getting sued countless times for not paying medical fees) were horrendous decisions that have cost them in the long run. Decisions that they should never have made. If Dixie fell in a swimming pool full of dicks she'd come out sucking her own thumb.
Also, I'm not saying TNA are going out of business. They have a money mark owner who would rather make his daughter think she isn't a moron than turn a profit. But as far as progression goes, TNA died years ago. This company is a laughing stock.
That picture you posted was funny as fuck to be fair. You'd think at some point in the last 13 years TNA would have gained enough confidence in the wrestling audience for people to not think they were about to die. The fact there are constant rumours about their eventual demise tells you all you need to know about their perception.
Okay, so...you say you know exactly every one of those decision to try and progress TNA was wrong (which i'm not disputing since the results didn't equal progress) but how the fuck do you know recent decisions is poor for business? How the fuck do you know certain things like going on the road is poor business? Do you have an alternative to that or are you just out to claim to know it all and afterwards claim that you knew it all along?
Because that's what i've been thinking about when i say your post, you claim to know the business. You know what's good and what's bad and you seem to know it all. That's your perspective, the business one even though you know nothing about numbers, you know nothing about the economy and financial side of the company, since it's confidential. So why prance around with a high tail and claim you know what's wrong and complain about everything they try to make the company grow?
The joke was more about how some (i haven't been around that long but even i have catched up on the trend) seem to wish for the demise of the company. It's wishful thinking, i don't know why but obviously they don't know a lot of what's going on but still wants to make everyone believe they do (and even themselves do think they know it, if i might speculate).
