Vince & Stephanie Sending Mixed Signals?, Flair Gives Pep Talk

– Ric Flair gave a pep talk to Clearwater, Florida’s Countryside High School football team this past Friday night. The team then went on to lose 46-10 to Pinellas Park High School. Flair was asked to address the team by John Laurinaitis. Laurinaitis’ son, Zack, plays for Countryside. Flair told the team:

“This is a unique time in your lives. Enjoy it. And while you’re out there, play your hearts out.”

– The New York Post has an article up suggesting that Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon are sending mixed signals to investors regarding the WWE Network. They point out that Stephanie told attendees at a Multichannel News event last week that they were targeting the first quarter of 2014 for a Network launch. Vince then told investors at the earnings call on Thursday that no date has been settled on. Representatives for the WWE Network reiterated to the Post that no date has been confirmed for the launch.

    Mixed signals? No mixed signals here. Targeting the first quarter of a year is far from setting a date. To put in a way dummies can understand: Targeting the first quarter of the year means they have set their goals on launching the network between January and April. That’s three months, 90+ days, in which they hope to launch it. That’s a pretty good chunk of time. Now if Steph said they launching on a certain date, like March 12th for example, then that would be setting a date.

    So yeah, Steph says they are wanting to launch between January and and April, but since they are not sure if everything will be ready in that time frame they are not setting a precise date for launch. Another possibility is that they are sure they’re going to launch in that time frame, but Vince is holding off on announcing an official release date until he sure the network will be ready by a certain date. If they set an official date and then something unforeseen goes wrong and sets them back months, they’ll look like fools.

      Math check! Do the math, 12 months divided by 4 is 3 months. The first quarter of 2014 is January through March.

        Check your math. The first quarter of the year runs from January 1st to April 3rd, April 2nd on leap years. Between January and April means from the start of January to the start of April, which is 3 months.

        • Aaron

          Three days, by saying between January and April, you are implying the whole month of April.

          • Edynol

            No. That would be January THROUGH April.

    I hope Flair just gave those kids a pep talk and not financial advice.

    I have to say that if what the mcmahons said was mixed signals? then I don’t know what the hell middleton is talking about, but another bang up job of reporting by him, almost as good as flair’s pep talk, cause if they were equal? countryside would have lost 80-0
