Why cant they put an event in the primary, but not the Org?
The mods say that they cant add the orgs because they have to be consistent, why cant they just add the shows that are primary league worthy, and if the ones after that are good enough, put them in the secondary league.
Say Elite XC has a good card coming up on july 26, and they think its worthy (have the mods vote if they think its worthy?) than the event will be added to the primary league, and if they dont continue to put on good cards than take them off.
You know wat i mean?? take it event by event, and not the Org, whatever event is worthy of being in the primary league is added, the rest are in the secondary league, regardless of what Org is putting on the event.
just throwing idea around
Its a good idea, but won't work in practice. The reason the org is in secondary is because they're inconsistant, not just with card quality, but with the card staying together. Almost every Strikeforce and EXC card looks GREAT when they first announce it. Its the weeks leading up to it where everyone gets injured, can't get visas, gets double booked etc that we have problems with, and then we end up with a crap card in Primary league. Programming wise, the primary and secondary leagues are completely seperate as well, so if we were to move the card from one to the other if it falls apart, we'd have to completely reset everything, so all the picks, wagers, odds, etc would have to be redone, and thats a huge pain in the ass.
I know everyone is antsy to have something new in the Primary league, but we'd rather do this right than have to add an org and then take it out after a few dissapointing events.
As for the WEC being added, one of the concerns is that not a lot of people are able to watch it. Most people don't have Vs. in their cable package and its not big enough to be featured at too many bars that I've seen. Talent wise, they're fine, and their cards are consistant, so we'll see. Plus theres the added bonus of them never putting a card on at the same time as a UFC. If the UFC keeps trying to counter Affliction with free cards, we might have to do a double header if we add them to the primary, as you'd only be able to bet on one event otherwise.
