Do you think Affliction is going to make a profit off this first card? The amount of money that they have to put into preparation, setting up the buisiness, and the major advertising they are going to have to do all this and the fact that Fedor is still a chubby little russian to the casual fan and Tim Sylvia was never beloved by the fans, die hard fans may love the card but Affliction will not make a profit off there first show, and Im not sure with sales dropping off of there clothing line that they have the assets to weather the storm until they see a profit, Bodog didnt, if nothing changes neither Elite XC or the IFL will, its not easy to be the upstart promotion and non of them are making any money, the only diffrance between them and the Affliction show is that Affliction will likely have about 5 times the salaries to pay,
