Post event surge pricing is the worst.

I waited till 2am after All In just so I could get an Uber from Hoffman Estates to Schaumburg without paying $100

Post-Mania surges have been noted to be 6x or even 8x

Hi, i was given some advice to post here regarding a new game i'm trying to get going.

It's a competitive creative writing game, in the style of Efedding but with a few differences.

Every game is a different theme and you pick a character from an already established list. The firs theme is Generational Toon Wars

the game mechanic is different in that everyone is given a Word Count instead of a maximum post count. So you can RP as much as you want with your available words left. But you can only RP after your RP has been responded to by your opponent.

I didn't plan to advertise on other threads, and i won't be spamming either. This is a one time post because i was advised it might be a good way to garner interest

You can read more at viewtopic.php?f=10&t=82720

Looking for players and judges (you can be one or both roles)

Thank you

The WWE has been classified an "essential business" in Florida.

Because they are essential to Florida's economy. No word on whether AEW is essential to Florida economy.

(WWE is headquartered in Connecticut, but has a performance center in Orlando). AEW is headquartered in Jacksonville)

Meltzer is reporting that Florida ruled any sporting event with a national TV deal and held without fans is essential.

So that includes AEW and UFC, and more notably doesn't disqualify MLB from holding events at their training camps in FL instead of Arizona.

He also notes that South Korea is presently playing fanless pro baseball and its "weird as hell." He points out the eerie silence when someone hit a homerun as an example.

That's extremely misleading Khan.

They didn't declare WWE an essential business. They declared any sport or entertainment product with a national audience as essential, of which WWE is one of a handful of companies that can be defined as such.

Funny side note about UFC. Dana White apparently pissed off ESPN with that shenanigans regarding Fight Island. The just as I gathered is that they couldn't find an athletic commission to sanction such a terrible idea and they wanted to sanction it themselves. TV networks and in general anyone involved in prize fighting don't like self-sanctioned events for obvious reasons.

Frankly I liked the idea of Dana White becoming Shang Tsung and bringing fighters all over the world to his private island to fight. I feel like they could have had a temple stage, a dungeon stage, a dock stage, maybe an underwater stage...

I'm disappointed that David Starr has confirmed himself to be a raping piece of shit

Plus now I'm gonna have to stop quoting him in my mafia game introductions

David Starr, indy wrestler and extremely loud progressive was called out on Twitter by an ex for sexual and emotional abuse. She also shared a screenshot where he said "I think I'll be good with the Aziz Ansari defense."

Starr's response was a seven-page "apology" where he claimed he didn't know that lack of consent was rape, and referred to it as "Gray rape." ie, a gray area. Even in his own telling of the story, it's very clearly non-consensual. Then a tweet surfaced from March by Dolph Ziggler's brother, Nick Nemeth, (also an Indy wrestler) where he had vagueposted about "Indy wrestlers who pretend to be woke feminists but are rapey pieces of shit." After three Starr story broke, Nemeth retweeted his original tweet.

TNT and OTT have already stripped him of the championships he held, and I'm sure any other promotions will follow suit if they haven't already.

Alongside that, a long, long list of British wrestlers being pieces of shit has been compiled, mostly with receipts.

How long until the American wrestlers also get their comeuppance?

I have also seen a massive thread about Jim Cornette, but he was already a piece of shit so this is just confirming it.

Of WWE guys, Ligero, Travis Banks, Jordan Delvin, Jack Gallagher, Matt Riddle, and Velveteen Dream have had allegations surface against them in the last day.

For AEW it looks like it's Jimmy Havoc and Justin Roberts
