Thanks for the heads up. Will check in to see the response from Bryan.

Perfect topic for Talking Sheet's return this weekend to not just be a one night only deal.

Interestingly (or not)Despite being a member for over a year now, I have never posted on F4W board and after seeing some of the responses Logan's thread got, I'll be keeping it that way.

Honestly,VOW has much diverse audio network and the written review/article aspect than any other site right now. Lack of diversity in terms of audio and coverage is waning my interest in F4W day by day. Till Dave/Alan is there,they have my money but the newsletter/WOR and DKP is what I pay for,not B&V where his Granny does a better review of NXT than Bryan.
Plus,I have no idea why Bryan confines himself to wrestling either from WWE/occasional ROH or 20/40 years ago. Perhaps because I'm uninterested in WWE is why I feel that the audio shows seem lacking.

It is interesting that as a pay site, the "demand" of F4W is to cover Raw and Smackdown, segment by segment, over multiple podcasts, while at "free" VOW, while service must be given to topical shows and news, ultimately everyone just covers what they want.

Edit: Just to clarify, I'm all for VOW doing the site their way.

B&V show no longer covering Raw or Smackdown (or anything really), loss of Todd Martin last year, loss of Lance Storm last month, on/off hiatus of Wrestling Weekly, etc. Bryan doesn't give a shit, but interesting nonetheless.

On Monday when Dave had to deal with his mother we had Bryan alone. He noted they were supposed to have Jeremy Botter on as a guest but since Dave wasn't around that couldn't happen. But why? Botter would only do the interview with Dave? Bryan wasn't prepared? It really makes no sense. Comes off like Bryan is just a glorified button pusher there to hit record because Dave doesn't know how technology works.

Pretty sure there was also mention of another interview later in the week on a special F4D that never ended up occuring.

You answered your own question :-)

This is the same man who thought Tiny Lister was wrestling in Japan in 2016.

Yeah, looks like someone moved it from the Radio Shows board to MPI. Not surprising.

Which makes no sense. How is that not on topic?

It's quite hilarious given how you guys recently opened a thread on your own in the VOW Podcasts section here asking for honest and open conversation about the state of the shows and site in general. And how you guys responded to the feedback in a respectful way, whether positive or negative.
The only thing missing in that thread over at F4W is Bryan going on a profanity-laden tirade insisting that only losers would complain and banning the next person who replies, something i'm sure is coming before the night is over.

The same staff there tell me that I need to act like an adult, then the site publicly displays itself continuously as dismissive and allergic to challenging criticism.
