It was a bummer for me because like i said Boz is too talented to not be involved in the sport on a national level.

They could have (and still can) easily moved those DVD's online to a PPV/VOD type system through any of the popular streaming sites.

YES. People would have pirated them. But people can just as easily pirate DVD's. And I have yet to be able to find any of the Clash DVD's on any torrent trackers. The demand really isn't high enough for it to make much of a difference IMO.

Right now they have a bunch of content sitting on a dying medium that is making zero money (unsold DVD's). It would be silly of them to not, at least, try to make a couple more bucks out of it by getting it all online.

Is the money worth the time is the issue i would assume. Boz has a real job.

good point.

it really wouldn't take much time to export out web-friendly versions of the DVD's and do the uploading. i can't imagine it would net a loss for him... but i have no clue about the financials that have already been sunk into this. perhaps at this point they have just cut their losses and moved on.

still hoping that they show up on the web someday. good DG content.

Come on, unclemercy. Stop avoiding being called out and break down why someone who's given so much of his life to work to grow the sport is a joke...

anyways yeah that one. it was during a long break where tdogg was talking garbage and just rambling on about things while they thought they were in commercial. theres comments about it earlier in the thread. search the word awful i think.

he was just clowning tho. everyone clowns tdogg. contrary to the consensus here hes a joke.

Since your obviously going to have a flood of signature disc requests after this revelation; Ive created your first logo free of charge.
