I don't know why it did that, but if you go to this thread (http://wienerville.slashwrestling.com/thread.php?id=2178), sorry I don't know how to link it, it did the same thing. I made the 9th post on the page, and it then duplicated it and made it the 11th post as well.

Hm. Weird, it happened twice in that thread.

This is only happening with you as far as I can tell...

Is there any chance you are doing something weird? Do you preview your threads before you post them? I'm trying to figure out where this might be caused...

I have no idea what could be doing it. I don't preview them, I don't double click (which probably wouldn't cause this anyway), I just have no clue. I never even noticed it until CRZ pointed it out in this thread, and I then noticed it in the Chris Jericho thread.

Hey that happened to me too on the "believe in yourself" while I was typing my reply it entered all by itself. None of my text showed up and it was on there twice. I try to delete them both and start again but it wouldnt let me. It said I had done the last post. I guess I fucked up by deleting it, but it was still weird.

Keith actually states in his Raw rant this week that Austin's tantrum is the RIGHT thing for business and the WWF should listen to his demands. See, apparently, signing the nWo was a HUGE mistake (despite ratings being higher than they have been since-oh, since August) and the creative team should listen to exactly what Austin has to say because he knows more about it any way.

See, this is the thing that really bugs me about the man. He'll rip the Hell out of Nash, Hall, Shawn, etc. for "unprofessional behaviour", but when one of HIS guys (ie. Austin or Bret) pulls a childish stunt then it's A-OK. It's just BS, really, and I wouldn't mind it if he didn't try and pass himself off as an impartial observer with the greatets wrestling knowledge known to man.

I've never seen Keith claim to be impartial. In fact, I've seen him come right out several times and proclaim himself to be biased.

Seriously, if you hate the guy so much, why read his stuff? I mean, I hate Tommy Fierro. Guess what? I don't read his stuff.

i'm no great fan of his but i read him because i have a lot of free time and wonder what he's going to bitch about. plus it's funny when he contradicts himself ("how'd the nwo get to be drafted as a unit?") i really wonder sometimes why he bothers to recap the wwf, unless it's a selling point for "lucrative" book contracts.

he has his moments though and his tape reviews are a great net wrestling resource. his efforts and crz's document nearly every minute of first run wwf / wcw programming for the past (mumble) years.

his japan tape review was cool. it's good to see him start to get into something he doesn't think is blithering idiocy.

If the nWo was responsible for two whole weeks of good ratings, you'd think they would've moved them in the four weeks before Mania but they didn't bump them at all.

Let's see. The nWo did NOT bump the ratings up. The ratings remained stagnent. Hogan did bump the ratings up a bit after Wrestlemania, but the true test of the ratings will come in the next week with the first week of the split.

I have no problem with Austin's behavior...keep in mind he's not the only one not happy with the nWo.

Uh....huh. He's the only one not happy with the nWo. And...who else is not happy with th nWo? Who else do you see refusing to work with them, sitting out TV and house shows, and generally being an ass? I mean, come ON, this is basic hypocrisy! The guy is behaving in a completely unproffesional manner, and NO-ONE has a problem with it! What the Hell is going on?!

I'll give you that the ratings weren't spiked immediately upon the nWo's return. But they've certainly been a key part in the recent upswing. I'm not proclaiming them to be the saviours of the WWF, but at least they've made SOME difference. But tell me, please, tell me, if, say, The Undertaker decided he wanted to change the outcome of his match and ruin a storyline, THEN sit out for two weeks, you guys wouldn't be ALL OVER it? I know Keith would. And I know many, many people on this board would be too. Austin may be a great wrestler who's made a tremendous comeback, but he's not above the same rules that everyone else has to follow.

And let's not kid ourselves here. Austin's not sitting out "for the good of the WWF", he's sitting out because he doessn't like how HE'S been handled, and how HIS moneymaking may be affected by these changes. And that's another thing that bugged me about Keith's rant-this idea that Austin is some God whom the WWF is blaspheming against by ignoring his sage advice.

Yes, I'm rambling. Too much coffee...

It doesn't matter if they are making a difference in the ratings or not. The bottom line is that Austin was asked to participate in an angle, he refused, and people are willing to overlook it despite hating guys like Nash, Hogan, etc in the past he refused to do what was asked of them.

People say Austin hasn't been selfish before, this is his first time doing this, blah blah blah. It's easy to not be selfish and to do what is asked of you when you are booked in a position to look like the baddest son of a bitch on Earth for four years.

"And...who else is not happy with th nWo?"

Considering that Vince, Steph, and HHH were the only guys who wanted to bring them in, and considering that Hall rubbed everyone the wrong way his first night in the company, and considering there are so many people on the roster who were in the WWF in 1995 or in WCW from 97-01, I'd say a whole lot of people.

"It's easy to not be selfish and to do what is asked of you when you are booked in a position to look like the baddest son of a bitch on Earth for four years."

Yeah I know, like when he was singing songs or crying.

"Steve Austin- Hulk Hogan 2K2"

Please excuse Austin for refusing to put over the young talent like Hogan, Hall, and Nash in lieu of working with the old guard of Rock, Angle, Jericho, and Benoit (who was pencilled in as Austin's WM opponent had he been able to return in time).



Oh no not here too.

Yeah, but you can't name any names. Until someone steps forward like Bob Holly did in that interview, all of this hearsay is meaningless. Besides, I highly doubt that say...Jericho would refuse a program with the nWo if he were slated for it.

I named practically every name except Vince, Steph, and Hunter.

Chris Jericho. Chris Benoit. Kurt Angle. Bradshaw. Booker T. Etc. Etc. Etc.

"all of this hearsay is meaningless"

I know, it was a very popular decision in the locker room to bring them in and Austin is jealous.

I'll concede on most of the names that you've listed, but Kurt Angle? You're really stretching it there. Do you have a quote from your beloved Meltzer stating as much? Has Kurt been staging sit-out strikes? My point is this: even if some talents are unhappy that the nWo was signed, I'd wager that most (if not all) would gladly work with them if given the chance.

I have one from beloved Meltzer protege Bryan Alvarez.

But I've been having this argument with 80 different people 80 different times so I think I'm just going to concede and say, yes, Austin is the cancer who won't put over Scott Hall. Do I think he should have gone home? No, but this stuff about Austin as the new Hogan, holding down the nWo is the lamest thing I've ever heard.

Yes! I'm in complete agreement with this sentiment. Austin shouldn't have to job to Scott Hall on the biggest show of the year, but he should have been more professional in voicing his displeasure with his current (lack of) direction. Just because Austin is fed up with management, doesn't mean that the entire locker room wants the nWo fired. And Alvarez doesn't count :p

My point exactly. Others may be upset with the nWo (really it's all hearsay) but at least they've actually been professional about it. It just pisses me off that the man has sat out and sulked for two weeks and people act like it's the RIGHT tihng for business. Obviously he's not the new Hogan (Austin can WORK), but just because he doesn't pull this shit all the time doesn't mean it's okay to do it at all. Yes, that sentence barely makes sense.

And to be honest I would be more annoyed if I were someone like, say, Edge, who has spent the last three years working his way up only to be denied a main event slot thanks to the nWo's arrival.

So what really sucks is 411 will now just be thesmarks V.7464.
