Post by: ViseGrip on September 09, 2019, 02:30:07 PM
Fix has named his dad as his coach and Zoe El Ouaraqqe as his training partner.

Does anyone know anything about Zoe El Ouaraqqe ?

Vise never falls for a spoof.  There must be some other explanation!!!

Just a bunch of pecker heads....and crooks.

You do know they continue to operate as a not for profit (.org), but every penny of ad revenue and user fees over operating expense goes into their pockets.

Nothing but a scam deal.

They may be even worse than the SPLC. But I can forgive them, because they stream dual meets I can't see anywhere else.

You are too late to the game to understand their scam.

No I understand.

I gave up on holding grudges and now just enjoy the coverage.

My one experience with Flo, many years ago, wasn't good.  I signed up for a month so I could watch one event (my old high school was in the Clash).  It took forever to find out how to cancel my subscription.  I gave all of the appropriate notices (multiple times), but they charged my credit card again anyway.  The only way I got out of the subscription was by going to my credit card company and disputing the charges.  Once they realized they weren't going to get paid, they let me go.  I've never gone back, even though there were a handful of events I was interested in seeing.

My high school coach also had similar issues with them at the same time.

Track Wrestling is an identical commercial enterprise and is set up as a .com as it should be unlike Flo.  Flo is trying to monopolize the market by copycatting Track and pushing Track out of the business.  They are worse than Google and Facebook.

And track is run by decent people. Big difference.

Simple and efficient system to navigate, and never a hiccup with their streaming.  Flo, nothing but bozos in the front an back rooms.

I was photographing an event they were filming in Oregon once.  The begged me for some photos to use and promised me a shirt in exchange and that they would provide me press credentials for some bigger events that i was having a hard time getting coverage for.  I'm still waiting on the shirt (it was in 2015) and the credentials didn't show up either.

That sounds like Flo.  Is that right?

Yes that was Flo.  Every now and then I email them to ask about my promised shirt.
