When Affliction began making weird decisions, I wrote it off as a new promotion trying to find their footing. I figured the mistakes would dissipate with time and by 2009 they would have their act together. Well, it's 2009 and Affliction still doesn't have a clue.
For thousands of media outlets around the world, today was inauguration day for Barack Obama. It is not just a big story, it is the only story that matters. For some strange reason, Affliction's promotion department (God, I'd love to see those meetings) decided it was a good idea to hold a press conference today at 11am, which just so happens to be when the inauguration ceremony gets going. While Barack Obama was giving a speech, seen and heard by tens of millions, Fedor was being asked about his belly.
I realize they are holding other press conferences this week, but maybe it would have been a good idea to at least have today's at a different time.
