What the hell is up with Versus?

It's 9:35 and they are not showing the event yet.

I'm not sure if the main card fights officially start at 9:30 or not, but if they do, this is really pissing me off.

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

It's like are you ******* serious? All of the events for WEC are on versus and why in the hell is versus playing this stupid show over WEC.

I'll admit, I'd watch this show if it was interrupting the live event of WEC!

Yeah, I just checked that. Normally, when they say it starts at 9:30, or whatever time, the first main card fight is on about 5 to 7 minutes after.

Thanks Aaron.

Man I came here to if anyone else was having the same problem. A freaking taped show is going into a live event's time slot??? That's complete bush league.

EDIT: now it's on.

Calm down, it wasn't Versus' fault. The NHL all star game went to a shootout so it ran over it's time thus making everything else late.
