    I think battlers should be covered for their travel costs. They need to understand this... you get your battle edited for free and it's on the net forever. it's free promotion if you make music.

    oK but what about arsenal? GT is KNOW by a ton of people becaue Arsenal battled okwerdz. Arsenal vs hitman was packed because people wanted to see that battle KOTD is going to get more views because of arsenal. This guy is bringing money not only into the gate but bringing in more fans he should not get paid?

    fight klub had its own show and was on for a good minute. only reason it went off is because fight klub fucked their own business up. so yes it can be done and with common denominator battlers in gt its a definate possibility

    I don't think your reading this thread... If your only making a company a $1000 bucks on a battle then why are you asking for $2000.

    laxin i get ur point......but look at it from this point of view:

    if a battler isn't bringing in 100 dollars...and they ask for a 1000...shouldn't the league tell them to fuck off....and if enough leagues tell them to fuck off wouldn't that fix the problem by natural selection?

    but here's a thing...the only surrogate we have for how much a battler "brings in" is the views one gets on youtube, correct? As such, wouldn't it make sense for any rapper producing sufficient "views" to ask for what he thinks he's e-worth is? The league can either pay him or not pay him, but if he/she can provide evidence of why he merits this money, in this case the views, then why can't he ask?

    ultimately, the onus is on the leagues...divas will be divas...if a league succumbs to a rapper's diva ways and make nothing off them and end up out of pocket..then that should be lesson learned......if they keep doing it then hey, the whole thing isn't really an investment it's a sunk cost.

    in short..and this is pointing out common sense......if you make money you get money...anyone can always ask (and you won't ever change anyone's mind about asking for money...i want money just for waking up and being myself everyday) but only the stupid leagues will pay for someone who won't get them their money's worth!

    its not that simple though? you economics is flawed. What about the door? what about keeping your customers happy? what about bringing new customers? what about the time a battler could be doing something else? how much is that worth? There are more factors and again the leagues dont have to pay it
