History repeats its self! No organization to protect the contestants LOL just run by the promoters LOL. I bet the next one wont be called the Turtles. When all this so called money implodes they can name it something else. And start all over again! JMO
Actually, this one was supported by the contestants. They held a meeting prior to the vote and the entire NFR contestant body decided that the current financial package presented by LVE was not in their best interest. I don't blame them, only $400 raise in 1st place prize money over last year for an event that genereated almost $100 Million in non gaming revenue alone last year?
When the FL package is showing 38K to win a round, 100K to win the average, and 15K an out for contractors! In an organization run by contractors and contestants, this one is a no brainer.
The big question now becomes, how do we run two different finals rodeos in December at the opposite sides of the country?!
