Being "real" or realistic is actually different from being flat-out negative. Some people don't seem to know how to at least find that happy medium. No, wait-and-see, just straight to the negativity. And I truly believe that nothing will please them more than to be "right." I could be wrong, but it seems more mentally productive to focus on the real issues, cause even if they are on the road now, which people begged for, then they still need to deal with the tag, x, and Knockouts divisions. The three biggest things they have going now are a dragged out angle with a loser stable, Bully/Brooke/Hogan, and the main event scene, with a smattering of greatness from Aries/Roode and Bad Influence. That's a problem, especially when two of your biggest angles are not even about the titles at all. I could even argue that Aries/Roode also isn't really about the tag titles either; it's obvious that it's just giving them something to do, given that the tag division is in tatters. That is a big problem.

I don't mind people marking out if they want to; that's positive energy sent in the direction of the company. But it would also be good to make sure to let TNA know directly that the real issues need to be addressed. Sometimes I vaguely and briefly wonder what some posters' lives are like. I get a sense of a no-hope household when you can criticize progress, which is actually progress in response to something that people have been demanding for years.

I certainly don't begrudge people their opinions or their skepticism, but the pattern of negativity is a bit much.

I've been thinking these past couple of days that it's an exciting time to be a wrestling fan again. Given that I love it so much, that's worth getting excited and hopeful about.
It could be that they're so desperate that it's their way of avoiding disappointment. But I think there's more to it than that. WrestlingInc did a podcast on this, I didn't listen to it myself for the following reason: Apparently the owner of the site and an 'industry' insider were taking the biggest shit imaginable on TNA and practically begging for it to fail. Apparently one of the quotes was: 'TNA's PPV buyrates have been awful, whatever they are'. Even so-called journalists are grinding the axe. I don't understand that mentality, competition is good. Especially when the only show in town is fucking atrocious.

Maybe so @ the first thing you said, and it's a shame about the rest. I guess it's irritated me because I can't identify with it. When you desperately want something, you're afraid to hope, but at the same time, it's like, "I don't know if it's going to work, but..." instead of "That definitely won't work." But, admittedly, not everyone is the same.

You know, over time I've taken the philosophy that if you have haters that means you're doing something right, because the nature of a hater (a real hater) comes from jealousy and fear. They don't want themselves or something they like to be "jeopardized" in any way because they somehow feel that it will somehow reflect badly on them. The industry "insider" you quoted epitomizes a hater, because they don't need facts to back up their hate, and they cannot acknowledge the positive things that the company does. I don't like Lady Gaga, but I can recognize her talents and I actually love her insane fashion. But if I was a Gaga hater, I would not be able to acknowledge any positive thing about her and would have nothing truly solid to base my dislike of her on, or I would focus on idiotic things that have no true bearing on who she is. So when people are altogether negative all the time about TNA, I think about that.

If TNA shut down tomorrow I'm not going to be embarrassed for having liked them and wishing them the best, but the way some people act, it's like they're so afraid of being embarrassed of liking WWE/TNA only to have it fail. There has to be a word in psychology for this.
