Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZRMxiq9HeKzDm72a7cRLog?app=desktop Someone on reddit posted this, and its pre 2005 Observer Live episodes with an energetic Dave, pre wife and kids, leading the discussion. Really cool stuff I've never heard before. Which episode would you recommend? There's a lot....

Re: VOW Flagship: G1 Climax 26, Super J Cup WWE Draft & more!

Has Vice magazine or something similar to that ever done a piece of apartment wrestling/gay for pay stuff? This stuff is also prevalent in bodybuilding culture. I love the seedier side of graps and would love to know more. I would like to posit that mid 90s was a great time period for hair/fashion....

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

Got an email offering me a re-sub rate of $3.99 for a month. Has there been anything good of late on the Observer/F4W front?

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

Wrote about this on Twitter, but figured it might be worth talking about in this topic as well. I just started catching up with the podcast Talking Sheet. The first ep in the queue was one with Chris Harrington from a few months back. It got me to thinking about guys like him and Brandon Howard; sp...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

Bryan's attitude is seemingly a mixture of martyrdom, lack of gratitude and arrogance at this point. He can still be entertaining sometimes with Vinny, but generally, he seems checked out. My hope, for his sake and the sake of the site, is that he uses his upcoming life change to fade into a manage...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

That post from Alvarez a few pages back is the same old shit from Bryan complaining about his work load. I've little sympathy for him tbh. He chose this an he works from home. Some people travel miles and miles to work 60hr weeks in several jobs that are more physically taxing. He's probably right o...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

this is a week where dave's tunnel vision gets the best of him, and a week where I question subscribing at times because you have to accept those personality ticks as a trade off we have to go back and continue to annotate the Bischoff/JBL interview Bischoff ran over his dog, I'm sure of it. Not to...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

I just don't have an interest in hearing breakdowns of shows from 20 years ago. I think they're at their best when they aren't talking about wrestling at all, honestly. But I rarely listen B&V these days anyway, so it wouldn't be a big loss. Dude, what the fuck is going on in your avatar?! :shock: ...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

First Post, heard about the thread on Talking Sheet. I do think it's worth the subscription price. For me it's always been about the newsletter and the newsletter is worth more than $10/month, imo. If the audio and/or the Board went away tomorrow, I'd miss them but it's not what I'm paying for. As ...

Re: Web sites for research purposes

Http://profightdb.com has some of the same info Cagematch does and has Meltzer's star ratings as does http://starratingslist.blogspot.ie VOW did tonnes of WON HOF podcasts last year and IIRC Dylan Hales did some on Wrestling Culture http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/talkCast.jsp?masterId=112658&c...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

I am a little frustrated with F4W just because I offered a ton of ideas that were ignored regarding bringing new stuff to the site, new forms of content, etc. But that's how it always goes, right? Ideas are ignored so frustration is bred, even if my ideas actually sucked in their mind. My comp subs...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

I often wonder what the Observer would have been like for all of these years if dave never got immersed in MMA and was able to put all of his attention towards watching wrestling. . Do you think there many MMA fans that aren't pro wrestling fans who subscribe for Meltzer's (and Alvarez's !) insight...
