The tag team match between TIA and CHEYENNE and RAIN and BERETTA ( KAYLEE ) has confirmed my worst fears for this site that is the lack of
experienced and trained refs. With MATT and ISIS both leaving you have a problem. In the S/V matches PRINCESS DONA is getting some discreet
giudance from MATT which is fine as these matches will get more intence and injury prone as the tournament progresses, But LIVE TAG TEAM is
about as injury prone as U/S gets.PRINCESS DONA is doing a great job but has other commitments.This post is not about any critasism of KINKS
staff all the wrestlers out there did a great job.Tag team matches are always fast and tough and hard to control hence the second ref. But this match
was just uncontrolled kaos putting the young women out there on the mat at risk I for one hope we get this sorted fast and we never see a match like
this again jh/uk.
I don't have the same exact concerns as you, but I really do feel that, and I'm gonna be blunt, Donna does not consider this site a primary concern. And, if Matt were here, she shouldn't.
But Matt left. So where do we stand?
Will Donna make US a primary concern? I don't think she will, unfortunately.
Will Isis or Rain help out? That's looking grim.
So what happens to US? If I have executive power and I had knowledge of my options, (which probably aren't what I want to hear), I know what I would do. I won't say what that is, other than to say that someone needs to care about this site as much as Matt did. Unless Kink is willing to lose it.
Hi WOOKIE my main concern is the wrestlers safeteyI dont know any thing about what goes on with the staff but we need some one who is experienced in wrestling and a ref no one is being fair to RAIN or PRINCESS DONA
if they dont get some one sorted for the job. The tag team match looked like a bar brawl at times this must effect the attmosphere the wrestlers experience here RAIN and CHEYENNE were very close to the live audiance but
were not stopped the list goes on . Why did ISIS leave she was made for this site jh/uk.
Donna has too many things going on to make this site a priority, Rain or Ariel really need to take over
I still believe PRINCESS DONA is the best director for the site she has done a great job so far and she is getting some back up from MATT but she needs partner to cope with her absence and with tag team the two you mention are
wrestling and probablly have other commitments. If this is to be DRAGON LILYS last season wrestling then she would be great but thats the type of experience you need the trouble is MATT created asite that is unique and has some special staff requirements for the wrestlers safetey but i am sure they have the people there its just getting them to do it I dont know if VENDETTA still works for KINK but she was a very experience wrestler as was NINA
I have the same feeling as you do, Wookie.
US was Matt's main concern, his beloved baby. now this baby is adopted by one with more beloved babies...
the forum is dieing. it started even before SV, pre match posts were one week - yes, two weeks - no, as well as the rankings.
now in SV, there are no rankings ofcourse. the pre match post is optional usualy, since we supose to at least know who are the wrestlers according the SV schedule, but this time the SV schedule got all confused up, due to a cancellation of one match. we got no info about it prior to the actuall update time, nor we got not info about the change in the other matches schedule later. it wouldn't have happend if Matt were here.
this site had two main benefits:
1. the content (the matches)
the interactivity was hit very badly, the content is still high quality due to the participants. hope it won't be the next thing to get hit.
that reminds me another issue...
another question mark is the new format, starting with the new season, reducing the matches length to 12 minutes (3x4 minutes), but having 2 matches per week. myself, I still don't know how this will effect the matches, better or worse, only time will tell.
I still feel that we have a great director PRINCESS DONA can work wonders with this site but she needs help experienced help dedicated help to run the
site and create the attmospere that MATT achieved with the members and the young women that wrestle hear. For the time she has had and the staff we
have lost she is doing a fantastic job but its to much for one person especially with so many other commitments its no good having someone else to help her
if they havent had experience thats what we need jh/uk
I have no idea why ISIS left U/S other than she might have felt she was not given the chance to take over but if KINK have a spare pot of gold and a
begging bowl now would be a good time to send the personel department out to see if they could at least get her back on a tempory term jh/uk.
I`m not going to criticize the way thing are, because people do thing diffrrent from qther`s. But the only thing is the update, to let people know what is happening, fromone week to the next. Apart from that great job so far.
I speculate on this one time and, hopefully, one time only. I believe that Matt and Isis are very tight. I think that it's as simple as when Matt left, Isis left.
If I'm wrong, then I would love to see Isis back. And that includes what I just posted about Rain; I'd love to see both here. Isis, if you are considering, drunken Wookie is voting for you!
But, yeah, it's gonna fucking rock to have Rain here!
Any one who has seen the last match will I hope by now see that things have changed at U/S the use of a ref that does not have enough experience or
kwow most of the rules in a S/V match was at best irasponcible at worst dangerous. So whats the fuss about ? EASY the rules have since U/S started
been evolved to make the wrestling safer so all the rules have a purpose take an easy one for instance at the start of a tag team match the two wrestlers
that start are change round to face there team mate this ensure they have to wrestle forward to tag them , other rules that may not seem important are there to
prevent injury and in some cases this knoledge was gained the hard way.Both MATT and ISIS used to break up holds spotting dangerous situations and
preventing them from turning into injuries we will never know how many this saved from injury., after they left this has not happened does it mean all our wrestlers have improved so much they dont need this protection ! The refs job is the most important one there is at U/S the job involves being as close to the action as posible and comunicating with the wrestlers and givving them a sence of security what i mean by this is MATT and ISIS showed they were there
for the wrestlers needs both physical and emotinal and for this they had respect and created that special attmoshere thaat is needed at this site. Does
the ref have to don a strap on and join in round four as a DOMATRIX when ISIS did this as a BONUS she was strongly critasized and the answer is no they
just need to have experience and look after the wrestlers this involves good commuication skills as well I dont need to explain the ref situation just take a look
at the lat match then go back to one of MATTS enough said jh/uk,
this site seems to be in a downward spiral something needs to be done ASAP. We need ISIS back!
Ok... just to clarify points here. Isis did not decide just to leave US. She left Kink as a whole, which US is a part of. If anyone had been checking, Isis has not done any shoots for Kink since the end of May. Check her posts on her sites to find out the reasons why. I wish her the the best and do hope to see her again somewhere.
As to the inexperience of refs. Yes, when Matt left and Isis decided to leave Kink right after that, it left a big hole to fill. This is not Donna's fault and she is attempting to fix the problem as best she can, the first step was allowing Rain to be promoted to ref, followed by the training of another male ref (I'm sorry, I don't recall his name) Now of course there is going to be a transition period before the quality of experience returns, so everyone must see that Donna is trying and it is up to us to encourage her, not critisize her, as she tries to work around the difficulties.
So don't be be pointing fingers, placing blame, crying over what's wrong with everything and asking for impossibilities (such as demanding Isis back. when Donna did not fire her, she left the parent company on her own terms)
[EDIT: This wasn't supopose to directed at just Jack but to everyone as a whole]
Not to criticize, but if someone or someboby take`s over, you would have fought they would put thing`s in place long before now. and their are set backs, but that`s just life. Matt did a great job by address problem, and letting the Members know where he and they stood. Even if he did not agree.
You guys are totally right. I have not been as active in the forums as Matt was in the past. I am still learning my way around Ultimate Surrender. I hear you loud and clear. You want more interaction in the forums. I will work on this.
Thanks for your feedback.
