I've been saying promoters should actually promote (and not a half assed effort) for years. Something that was pointed out to me by a worker that most people don't realize is that most indy shows are not that good & " just not worth the effort of a promoter to put much work into". Because "Some yarder or jo-jo will do it for them." Or they've set it up so that they don't lose their money"
I've some of the shows I've seen in the Mahoning Valley where I've thought to my self; Man I'd hate to be the promoter that has to call the media when the next show rolls around. There is a part of me that hates typing this.... but Most indies in this region are in the shitter for a reason, They want it that way. Which is why I'm so bummed about missing ROH in Detriot this Friday.
