Thread: All Star Classic Featured on Flo

    Default All Star Classic Featured on Flo

    Just read on flo that they have the rights to the all star classic this year. In their post it says that the Classic will be available to TECHNIQUE WAVE SUBSCRIBERS ONLY. Now, as a subscriber to Tech wave i'm not too upset about it, but reading the commments below the article it looks as if Flo may have an uprising on their hands...

    I've never really been too interested in the all star classic anyway. This year the Dake/Taylor match would be cool to see but I don't think I'll pay to see it unless it was close and I could go to it.

    Flowrestling To Broadcast NWCA All Star Classic | News | Flowrestling

    Just read the comment section below the actual article. I have read through all the comments and almost every single one was incredibly negative. People are very upset at Flo for making this Tech Wave only. Like i said, I am a wrestling coach so I am already subscribed to Tech Wave so I am good, but many Flo followers who are not on Tech Wave, but either Flo Insiders or free users are cross at Flo for asking them to pay for an event that used to be broadcast for free. Many comments have said that the users have intentions of cutting ties with Flo.

    I myself, understand that Flo is a business and that they offer a valuable resource for the wrestling community, and I completely understand them charging for Tech Wave (which is PHENOMENAL!) and Flo Insider, however I must say that I agree with many of the people who commented on this article, I don't agree with them making this a pay to watch event.

    Imagine the kind of publicity this match (Dake vs. Taylor) could get from the non-wrestling community, which is the type of exposure that our sport needs to grow. However by making this event pay to watch, they have limited the number of people who will see the match to the die-hard wrestling fans only who are willing to pay for a Tech Wave subscription.

    As a coach in Georgia, where wrestling is still a small sport, I would have loved to given my wrestling team the link to Flo (if the coverage was free) and let them watch how the best in the sport take care of business. I am such an advocate for the growth of our sport, but by limiting the number of viewers who will be able to watch the event, they have drastically limited the exposure that this will provide for the wrestling community... Just one guys opinion

    I understand that they are a business as well but I don't understand why it isn't a flat, one night rate. Pay $10/month and have to cancel...no thanks. Pay $5-$10 one time - 100% in and I'll make my gf watch too.

    Personally, I always thought flo would end up mking people pay. Those trips to Russia aren't free. I also don't think they are necessary. I certainly don't agree with making people buy a subscription to technique wave to watch it. I don't even see how the two are related. I wouldn't have liked them making us get the insider thing either, but that would have at least made sense.

    I'm just going to stay off the computer for a few days and watch the delayed broadcast. It isn't like the ESPN bottom line or sportscenter is going to ruin it for me. They probably don't even know what it is.
