They get more exposure for themselves and their sponsors?

I mean, it's up to them if they want to capitalize on that opportunity.

Plus every dollar that Innova doesn't have to put into the broadcast is a dollar that can be put into the purse or event amenities instead. So the players get their "cut", one way or another.

Is there a cut taken out of the purse, to cover video expenses?

So...just trying to understand your logic... I want to offer a ppv view event and I want you as a player to help cover my expenses and in return you're not going to get any cut of the sales I take in.

Nothing wrong with PPV, but I would hope the players are savvy enough to speak out and make sure some of the PPV income is added to the purse.

Which players are helping cover expenses? What exactly are you referring to here?

I dont think there is any solution nor do I think we need to look for solutions. I was just saying that even if you try to stay away from spoilers that there is still nothing you can do. Pointing out that a lot of people on here say its really easy to stay away from spoilers but its really not that easy.

Do you guys not read? The income is going to the EDGE charity. They are only taking in enough to help cover the cost of the production.

If you know how to disconnect and hide under a rock for a few days, it's pretty easy.

I don't entirely disagree with you, but my guess is Innova almost certainly takes a net loss on this event. If Innova was making considerable profits themselves, then it could be reasonable for the players to expect a kick back via purse money, but until then the exposure itself is the payoff.

It already has one of the highest payouts for an event and almost nobody (Innova, TDs, Volunteers, some media partners) are making a direct profit from the event. Fulcrum of course is making money. Innova likely throws this in the marketing costs column on the balance sheet. IMO the players are in no position to expect anything from the PPV revenue.

I was trying to understand this previous comment to my post... which made it sound like if players get a cut of the PPV profits, then players should also take a cut in the purse to pay for ppv expenses.
