I never claimed to know the business. I never said that at all. You seem to be reading things that arent there. Dodging glaringly obvious bullets like the ones mentioned doesn't need anything more than basic common sense. Your point would be valid if TNA never fucked up royally with those decisions. But they did.
And its pretty sad that Eric Bischoff has that amount of time on his hands. Shows how shit of a job he must have done, to have time in his day to call into mark podcasts. Bischoff turned prematurely grey after all the work he put into WCW. Heyman looked like a 50 year old man in 1998 because he never slept. Vince McMahon rarely gets a full nights sleep. Yet Bischoff is fucking around on some dudes podcast. Typical of this company. They are so balls deep in what people think about them, they dont see the problems in the company itself. Bischoff is a walking excuse, though. TNA just hired everyone who didnt learn from the mistakes they made in the 90s.
But still you claimed TNA is failing as a business, making the wrong business-decisions and will never progress because to quote you "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."
So how is that not claiming to know about business? Even though you hide behind the common sense-thing it's still a business-discussion which you claim to know they are doing things wrong, it's horribly run and more importantly Dixie Carter is so incompetent and have a bunch morons hired that they will never, eveeer prosper (because you also know the financial side of the company...).
Did you listen to what Bischoff said to the guy? It could be an eye-opener for you and something much needed for a lot of wrestling-fans on this site, not even related to TNA but to other companies aswell. It's fucking laughable how the amount of stupidity and self-proclaimed geniuses of the business (or any other business) can sit here and claim they are doing things wrong, business-wise.
I asked if you listened to it, because i assume you really didn't because of your answer that seems to be more directed at Bischoff as being a failure and commenting on his sleep, his work-schedule etc. I begin to wonder if you are running out of arguments and now just make shit up.
No, I think most of us just hope it goes out of business.
And then the TNA fans can leave the forum.
Then we can put up a ROH/NJPW section up or something.
And this is pretty much the guy i described before. An indy-mark who hates TNA for no reason other than he is a mark for a smaller company that he feels deserve a spot on a wrestling-forum that TNA has.
Because TNA doesn't make any money. They lose money every year. But at the end of the day as long as the Carter's want the company to stay in business, it will. Even if it's bad business. It's like a parent not wanting to disappoint their child or see them fail. They know it's failing. They know it's not making money. But since they have a ton of money they're willing to deal with it because it keeps their daughter happy.
Okay, please present to everyone where you got the confidential information about TNA's financials? You do know it's a private company so where did you get the facts?
And yet with the narrative of Dixie Carter being a bad business-woman, a ditz as if you know her and have seen her make the decisions.
Wrestling-forum never cease to amaze me...
(And i will probably be called a TNA-mark or something, so let me explain that i ain't no mark to a company, why should i? I just simply had enough with the morons running around claiming things they don't have the facts
