The funniest thing about this is that ESPN/TSN have a "partnership" (or ESPN owns a significant portion of TSN, depending on who you listen to), and the ESPN Spotlight Game Of The WEEK of the CENTURY was on .... Rogers Sportsnet, because TSN needed to carry curling on 4 out of 5 feeds.

So if I were ESPN, I wouldn't really be "worried", but I'd ditch TSN and hook up with The Dishonorable Opposition.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled stuff 'n' things.

The phrase "WWE apologist" is just hilarious to me. It's a fucking wrestling company, not a despotic regime or a religious sect. I don't have to apologize for liking what I fucking like.

Maybe so... but like any television show, tons of people will argue that something is awesome, no matter how trashy or awful it is.

One may not need to justify something like Real Housewives of Wherethefuckever. But don't sit there and have a debate with me over how good it is, or how I don't get it, etc. Too often, people are reluctant to simply call a spade a spade and say, "You know what, you're right-- this is fucking garbage, but whatever--it's a guilty pleasure I still enjoy it for some reason." That's the difference.

For the record, I don’t “apologize” for anything. I acknowledge and understand where you guys are coming from, but be very clear: I am not sorry.

What am I supposed to be not sorry for, again? I got lost five or six posts ago.

Didn’t everybody who commented on RAW have complaints? Were there parts people enjoyed? Sure. But it’s not like anybody was giving it the “omg. best. raw. evah!” treatment.

So who's the ultimate arbiter on whether something is legitimately good? Because it would be helpful for me to know whether I'm allowed to like something on its own merits, or whether I can only like it ironically.

Seriously, guys, we're talking about pro wrestling here, not "Breaking Bad." We can look at TV shows in the "Real Housewives" vein as crap, because a huge proportion of the viewing public would consider them to be crap, but there's an equally huge proportion of the viewing public that would consider all pro wrestling to be crap. I don't have a problem with someone saying "I hated this particular segment of SmackDown!," or even with someone saying "I hated this entire episode of RAW," but this kind of "This was objectively terrible and it's impossible for anyone to think it was good" nonsense is what really steams my hams.

And look, I'm not saying that happens all the time here; 95% of the time, if I see that kind of attitude, it's on the unfortunate occasions when I read wrestling discussion elsewhere on the Internet. And it's super-rare for anyone here to be a complete dick about it. I just don't think I should have to admit something was bad before I say I liked it.

I'll bite here. But its just a simple rehash of the pizza analogy. Sure, it was far from the best RAW ever, but it's still one of the top 3 (behind NXT and SD) wrestling shows on TV and that alone makes it better than anything else for me. I simply never get bored with wrestling the way I do with other TV shows.

* bad situation for Big Cass tonight; he was doing autograph signings in the lobby of the old ECW Arena in Philly during the intermission of a House of Hardcore event he was going to wrestle at later when he got knocked down by a sudden and violent seizure; he was taken to hospital but there's no word right now on his condition

An apologist is one who defends something, not one who offers an apology for something.

* word from Tommy Dreamer is that Big Cass is doing OK and able to move around on his own after the seizure he suffered at the House of Hardcore event last night - obviously though Cass will be starting the medical examination procedure to determine what he's suffering from that caused the episode in the first place

If he had a dime for every time he had a seizure and stayed down he'd have 10 cents by now. [/toosoon?]

Seriously, hope he's OK. It's probably something caused by the early appearance of concussion syndrome because he's probably got at least a couple of them the same way everyone else in the business does eventually.
