Why is it so hard to post results?

In every sport, winners should be determined through rivalries. Not every fan can watch a given event live, or later on TV or on the Internet because sometimes a conditional contract is in place which doesn't allow filming. But everyone who is a fan and supporter of the sport should have the opportunity to see the results after the event. 

In most disciplines, event organizers respect and appreciate the support of fans and followers. But unfortunately this is not always the case in armwrestling. In our sport, most promoters are able to post results soon after their events BUT some event organizers don’t seem to be able to do the same. It’s odd, because before the event, these same promoters are able to answer any and all questions regarding event details. They often right things like “you shouldn't miss this one”. Unfortunately, not everyone can go and watch the event live, and many of these people are very interested in knowing what happened at the event. Even the pullers who do attend the event enjoy seeing their names posted in the results...

Often some of us, including myself, have to take time out of our personal lives to watch footage just to get partial results or keep asking people who were there to create a list of at least the top 3 finishers in each class.

I believe the best example of how events should be run and promoted in every aspect is the most prestigious league in MMA: the UFC. Event organizers, check out the official UFC website and SEE HOW TO RESPECT FANS AND FOLLOWERS: ufc.com

If you want to be perceived as a professional, act like professionals!
