Have I ever said how much I can't stand it when people complain about being better off than they were before?

And how exactly are they better off??? In the case of Feud, at least a couple of family members probably TOOK TIME OFF FROM WORK to be there.  I don't know about you, but I make more than $50 a day, CHIEF.

In the same sense if I walked up to someone and offered them $175.  If you don't want it, screw ya.

That's what vacation days are for.

I personally don't care about the dollar amounts given away.  The 'Feud' is fine just the way it is.  It's a format that has worked flawlessly for over 30 years.  The current run is the best since the Dawson days and is generally well received with the public.  (Ratings speak volumes).

Why fix it if it's not broke?

Yeah, especially when airfare to LA costs over 10 times as much as that. Yeah, that makes sense.

If you consider $175 to be "better off," I feel sorry for you.

That's what vacation days are for.

Did you ever stop and think...oh, I don't know...that maybe some people DON'T HAVE PAID VACATIONS? Or, maybe vacation days to use?

Like Chris said...you don't have any room to talk.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Count me on the bandwagon for $10 a point for not reaching 200 in fast money.  The only real problem is with the main game.  My problem is when producers can change the DOUBLE question so that a family cannot 300 before the 2nd commercial break.  If the producers are worried about the main game ending before the 2nd commercial break, they should change the structure of the main game.

For me, there is something unseemly if an iconic show's prize structure is such that it's not unusual for a winner to leave with less than $1,000, especially a winning team.

OK, since you're a reasonable guy, I'll ask you this:
They lost the bonus game.  Why are they deserving of anything more?
[/quote]
It's less about merit than about aesthetics.
i) The host sounds more dramatic reading a total that begins with "one thousand" than one that begins "x hundred."
ii) The viewer doesn't have to listen as closely to know when the team had a bad Fast Money round.

And that's without comparing it to the payouts on WoF and J!
Protecting idiots from themselves just leads to more idiots.

Well, if its that much of a financial burden for them, perhaps people should get their priorities straight and go to work instead of appearing on a game show.

If I throw 5 bucks down on double 00 on roulette, and that number hits, I'm up $170.  While you're not "rich" by any means, that's $170 you didn't have before.

Fair enough. While I still disagree, at least you can give decent reasoning for it, instead of merely calling it "an insult".

It means you sound like you're arguing for the sake of having something to argue about and in the process are making yourself look like an ass.

I'm pretty sure that there was more to what Chris was saying than that, but I'll let him enlighten us if he so chooses.

As of right now, I want $10 a point offered to the winning family in the maingame (thus, they could win from $3,000-$5,990 before getting the shot at $20,000), and have no money awarded in Fast Money if they lose there.

Chris, why would you even provoke him? It's plain as the nose on your face that the two of you dont like each other. You two snipe at each other with the childish name calling, callling out, which in turn provokes  others, and drags the conversations down. It's childish and frankly, it's getting old- from both of you.

I know I don't post much, and Im not a moderator, but I honestly felt it had to be said.

Yeah, I know. I call out hypocrisy when I see it, though. Just so happens that particular individual spews a lot of it.

If it really bothers you that much, you are certainly free to put me in your ignore list.
