Exactly. You and I are not casual fans and we understand that. But the casual fans do not. They see little Pip Squeeks that they could squash with no problem.
So in terms of popularity with the casual fans, I think the lighter weight classes have much more of an up hill battle than heavier weight classes.
But as the casual fan gets more and more educated, hopefully they will gain an appreciation for the lighter guys.
