I just wanted to say thanks for all the people coming to the site. Every month its doing better and better. Thanks for those of you who support our sponsors as well. I am trying to figure out how to generate revenue and your support means helps a lot.

Today's soliloquy? Quick Results

This weekend in Fort Mac and from comments on the site, I had a number of people come up to me and say 'where are the updates from Nova Scotia" or "why are the results not up faster" or "aren't you covering in BFL"? Comments on the site are always a little harsher.

My first reaction has always been laughing out loud or smile. It is unbelievable how when we started, everybody was just happy to find results posted online a few days after the event. A year ago, we would wait for sherdog to post them up a week from now if they got posted at all. I am amazed at how far we have come. Its pretty awesome how ingrained Top MMA News has become and how appreciative I am that you come to the site to get the updates.

My second reaction is to apologize. We had people at both ECFP in Trenton and BFL in BC and it is Top MMA News' every attention to get results up ASAP. What happens is reception. In Fort Mac, my phone could not work. However, they had free wireless so I was able to get results up right away via my laptop. At BFL, Robert brought his laptop, but his wireless was not working. At ECFP, Derek brought his cell and no reception so he went outside at intermission to call us.

Another thing that makes me smile is being at Prestige FC in Fort Mac and a few people came up to me with their smart phone browser on our site looking up results. They were said "Wow, Imperato lost," "Damn…Kang got subbed.", and "Rampage dominated Hamill". Its amazing that people in northern Alberta was talking to me about a previously undefeated Michael Imperato and went on to discuss the Ricky Goodall/Steve Rogers debate from a show in the maritimes. The Rampage guy did not even know I was from Top MMA News when he pointed the result out to me.

I just love this stuff. Thank you everybody. The MMA community is awesome.

PS. If you are going to a show somewhere in Canada, feel free to contact me beforehand at kgrienke@topmmanews.com. You can help out our MMA community by texting quick results. As you see, even if we already have someone covering the event, it helps to have a backup person (hopefully with a different cell phone carrier) to text quick results.

Great post, honestly though I don't think an apology is needed! Sure everything wants everything now – it's the way society has become but I know for a fact that everyone here at TMN does their damndest to get stuff up ASAP during/after an event… as Keith mentioned sometimes it's just outside of our control (i.e. phone/wireless service).

Ha.

Everyone is bad for this. I was pissed that I could never find them and get pissed when we don't have them as well.
