Kevin Kelly says…
“Jumping into the debate, I wanted to put my two cents in on IWF’s role in the wrestling landscape and I also wanted to compliment Glenn Gilberti for the experiences he shares with us here at Wrestlezone.com.
We live in a world of immediate gratification. We live in a world of blogs, message boards and “fast food” journalism. But the wrestlers of today are foolish when Glenn says that, â<80><9c>(a)ll of the guys I know in the business are reading the internet. Just hoping and praying that they get “4 stars.” I hope Glenn had tongue-in-cheek as he wrote this because it canâ<80><99>t be true. If it is, thatâ<80><99>s just sad.
Most pro and college athletes today intentionally avoid papers, talk radio and message boards because of the volatile nature of opinions expressed. A vocal group of every pro and college team’s fans want their coach fired, the quarterback strung up or their team to acquire the best player or else. They express those opinions every day and the constant drumbeat of negativity can be overwhelming to an athlete’s psyche.”
