Thread: No good deed goes unpunished

    Default No good deed goes unpunished

    If anyone dares to brave the cesspool... interesting thread "over there" about it being unethical for the Super 32 to raise money for Adam Frey and Coach Quentin Crosby in their fights against cancer. Shame on us.

    I just went over and had a look - let me wash my hands . . . .

    Okay, that's better. None of the comments criticized the very worthy causes, only the issue of auctioning off entrance opportunities. I don't really see how this is such a big deal, and maybe the competitive bidding will raise more money than simply opening up more spots and collecting entry fees. I guess you could make a case that these extra spots will only go to those who can afford to win the auction, but hey, if this hadn't been added, they wouldn't have had the chance to wrestle at all - period. I've got no problem with it.

    Everyone had the same opportunity last Thursday beginning at 6 pm to enter for $50.

    It's just annoying to get criticized for trying to do a good thing, but I can't say it's unexpected. It's worth the criticism, however, to think of the end result.

    [sarcasm]You are just scum of the earth for doing this

    Geeze what are you thinking trying to help the wrestling community when you could keep the money all to yourselves? Quit donating and keep it all to your greedy self! [/sarcasm]

    I am ashamed to be a human when people bitch about someone donating money to worth causes.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Not to defend them, but that's not what they were bitching about. Even the critics said that they were worthy causes, they just didn't like the way the money was being raised. So you can still be proud to be human.

    I doubt they are opening up too many spots to make a difference in the number of kids that attend. Even the past few years when they sold out the 1250 spots, not all have shown up for the tournament anyway. Last year only 1063 were there, the year before 1144, and before that 1062. So if they open up 10 spots, they are still not even reaching the maximum that they established at the beginning.

    They had their chance to get in the tournament just like the 1250 that got in already. Now you are getting a chance to pay extra(which some people have said they would) and get in. Don't forget that parents routinely shell out over $1000 to go to Fargo each year and this is just as tough, if not tougher at some weights, of a tournament.

    I just don't see how people can complain...well people will complain about anything and everything just to complain.

    Honestly, I think it's asinine to complain about how the money is being raised. It's extra money that wouldn't be brought in without the auctions.

    As to the complaint that we should just donate a percentage of the profits, who's to say that we won't? Once all the bills are paid, I'm hoping to contribute more.

    Just like my sig line: "Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can"

    As the old saying goes...

    Never argue with an idiot, he will bring you down to his level and beat you with experience.


    People on that board are idiots!

    Stardust, I agree 100% with you, but it's unfair to imply that the critics are against raising money for Adam Frey and Coach Crosby.
