Bingo

My personal preference is to only listen to shows Meltzer is on

Oh yeah - that would be another con of the message board. Alvarez posts a lot

And some of us are print newsletter only and avoid the board and audio and site completely.  :)

Do you not get access to the audio with the print newsletter or is this just a preference?

And where the hell do you keep all of the back issues?!

Look, are you a Fed?

Why do they still have a thousand plus page thread for only pics of jailbait or did they finally nuke that after Dave started posting?

I believe if you are print only, you dont get the audio. They used to have a deal (and still might) where the website is $X and $X+Y also gets you the print version. I figure any audio from Dave I might want to hear will turn up on YouTube. 

And I have many boxes of Observers going back to 1990. Plus digital copies from the 80s.

Wait, you don't keep them scattered all over your floor like Dave?! It's too funny when you hear him get out from his chair and scrunching paper up.

My OCD (is it OCD when it's that bad tho?) would be in meltdown if I saw that in real life.

Rollins is getting another IC title shot at SummerSlam, despite failing. But not a peep. Because Rollins, for reasons only Satan knows why.

Besides, that trope is old hat. The "I am Stone Cold/HHH/John Cena/Roman Reigns so I get good matches even when I don't ask for them" rule isn't new.

Are you secretly Roman Reigns, or do you just have this board set to notify you whenever he's mentioned?

Oh, they are all over the place and not in any kind of order. The good thing about having stuff digitally is that it's easier to find than rooting through boxes of paper.

Why is that a bad thing? I think Alvarez is hilarious.

The most convincing thing the video does is strengthen the argument of the "Wreddit is awful" guy. 

Out of all the wrestling forums I have seen Wreddit is the second worst. But hell I have been here since 99 or 2000.

Pro is Meltzer posts their occasionally... which might be a con for some

Other than that there are no pros

Basically if you wanted the message board equivalent of Mos Eisley Cantina... you found it

I thought the wrestling forum version of Mos Eisley Cantina was Freaking Awesome Network.....

What’s the worst? The WON board?

Also what do you hate about Wreddit? I hate Wreddit too but I wanna hear somebody else’s grievances about it.

They're both full of people who act like assholes who don't know anything, but pretend like they do based on whatever their specific bias is for or against. Not a lot of room for variety of opinions. People here disagree a lot, but it doesn't, usually, lead to outright 4chan or 8chan level crap I used to see back in the day on the WON boards. Reddit I imagine has similar lowlifes.

The WON board is so SO much better than it used to be.

That being said, it's still terrible.

To me, $3.99 would be worth it just to go in and download all the Monday Night War Tuesday podcasts as they go week-to-week reviewing every RAW and Nitro.  They're at mid-99 right now.  Reviews of the newer stuff can be blah unless it's something so great or so terrible, but I'm a big fan of their retro stuff.  They also do mid-80s Crockett on Sundays and other old shows on the Network.  But if you're not a podcast person, it may not be worth the money.

Oh yeah. Anytime he’s brought up there, the comment section relentlessly shits on him.

I know nothing about him. Why do people hate him?

Use to post here, got pissy that we didn't take him seriously as Meltzer, whined we didn't maintain his high standard of conversation.  I think Rippa's signature quote is from one of his whining sessions.

We lost him before the Bram Strobelight craze, right?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Phil tired of his shit and Cashed him prior to the onset of Brick Stringcheese.  I think that's what took out Stro though.

Not having him around during Broom Strongman week counts as a loss in my book. He sounds like he'd have hated it.
