The Ratings for the Oct. 4 Card are going to be terrible!
I have no clue what those buttholes at EXC and CBS are thinking!
They blamed the crappy ratings of the last show on the absence of Carano and Kimbo...
Well, there was absolutely NO promotion for that event. Nobody's going to watch it if nobody knows about it.
Same with this card, you can put all the big names you want on a fight card, but if you don't let people know it's happening, they won't watch.
These guys are in the promotion business, I find it hard to believe they don't realize this.
I have to keep checking back at this board to remind myself of the date these fights come on. There are no advertisements on CBS (that I have seen, anyway).
WTF is going on? Is CBS just intent on getting out of the fight business or has EXC completely given up and accepted their fate to die by 2009?
I would like to see EXC stick around for their women's division if nothing else, but they are doing a piss poor job of taking advantage of an astronomical opportunity being broadcast on CBS.
Spend some money on advertising, you A-Holes! Just because Kimbo and Carano are on the card doesn't mean the whole country magically knows about it.
I'm really irritated with this. Just about anyone from this board could run the business better than this.
