Give it to ESPN.

Flo wouldn't be in this position if they weren't doing the backdoor bullshit they have been doing lately (as in the last 5 plus years).  it was fine when there weren't a ton of television licensing rights and it was a needed service.  now they're just finally being punished for ignoring the rules that every other wrestling site has been following.

We aren't allowed to do audio or video in Carver, yet somehow matches end up on Flo.  Same with other tournaments and duals.

You are going to be seeing a lot more events streamed next month and it will all flow through NBC online sports.  Flo would have been eroding the NBC audience.. 

For Flo to even think they could stream Olympic events is obscene.

Good, they need to be kicked in the balls.

Flo wasn't going to stream the Olympic events.
Bunch of snowflakes run this board, sad how the mods cater to people that support one political party.

They are still going, but won't be on press row.

They aren't dumb enough to post matches unless they have permission, especially of the Olympics and with the rights NBC has.
