Dahlsim, I think you are missing the point. I don't care abou DJ's, lighting or dancers. I haven't complained about that. The $4K that should have been in the pot is completely seperate from that; none of that money should have been spent on any expenditures beyond plane tickets. If any of the pot money was spent on this; then that IS theft; no one may have pocketted any money, but money was still stolen from the pot. As I said before, I believe that the money was spent aleviated mismanaged spending; not pocketted by any person directly. None of the Soulcalibur money should have been spent on paying for the event. There were more events at Supercon than Soulcaibur, not to mention there was a venue fee; and I even heard that NVGA got the venue for FREE. This is what I fear; I believe that instead of the Supercon venue being used to run the SC4 Nationals, I am worried that SC4 Nationals pot was used to run Supercon.
