How many controversial subjects do you think it will tackle, from the AER to WC's to Exempts to # of events counted in the rankings to stuff about the locale and format of the YEC's to whether IMG and Octagon should both represent players and run tournaments, etc., etc., etc.? My guess: 0 or 0 or 0 or 0........
