But it wasn't even a good rating lol. I don't know what you think you have proven with this. That main event gained back all the viewers who tuned out and gave the show its lowest quarter hour in history. What an accomplishment. You blame people for looking at things in black and white and then go and do the exact same thing. Every week you're in here arguing with the same people who aren't going to listen or change their minds. Then you get butthurt when they, surprise surprise, don't listen and don't change their minds. I'm not a blind Punk hater. I'm not even a Punk hater at all. But to call him a draw based on recent numbers really is just ridiculous. He isn't responsible for killing the show like some claim he is but he sure as hell isn't doing anything to help it either. Why waste your time saying the same thing every week and having the same arguments every week, trying to prove points when all you're doing is wasting your time and coming across as severely butthurt and you aren't even a Punk mark. It's just silly.
Double standards are part and parcel of the internet. At Survivor Series 2008, Cena beat Jericho for the WHC after returning from injury and the IWC threw a super bitch fit. On the same night, Edge returned out of nowhere to win the WWE title and the place rejoiced. There's a double standard for you. Accept it, live with it and move on. It isn't going to change and it's utterly pointless to even try and stop it. You aren't accomplishing anything by coming in here and saying the same shit every week and neither are the people arguing with you on the opposite side. It really has just reached childish levels at this stage tbh and is starting to become embarrassing. Is it any bit of wonder this thread is a laughing stock. Some of you really take this shit WAY too seriously. You come in here, say your piece, the Punk marks agree with you, somebody argues for the opposite, the Punk haters agree with that person and it's the same thing every week. What's the point?
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
If this thread is so pointless, why do you bother posting here at all, then? This post comes off as being so high and mighty, and yet week in, week out, you're in here with us, debating the ratings. Whether you like it or not, you're as opinionated as the rest of us. You try not to be and maintain some sort of neutral ground, but everyone's posts in this thread are biased, including yours. I like the part where you say that everyone takes this shit way too seriously, but you for some reason felt the need to post this. You're essentially complaining about other peoples' complaining. If you didn't take this shit seriously to some degree, you wouldn't have felt the need to post this lengthy diatribe.
Really, you're right. This thread is a total waste of time. I've put at least 5 people on ignore because of their asinine points of view. I try, like you, to look at things from a logical and neutral point of view, and call a spade a spade. Yet I myself find that sometimes I say things with a bias. It can't be helped.
I just don't understand, nor appreciate, your post. I respect you as a poster, but you rip into everyone in this thread for things that you yourself are also guilty of.
And for the record, I believe the source said it was the lowest quarter hour in 15 years, not of all time.
