Where it doesn't succeed with me is making me want to participate in anything like this. If I were competing in it, I'd just feel exploited and used with all of the head games, switch ups, and marketing twists.
Of course I'm never going to do this stuff anyway, so what I think doesn't really matter. But when people talk about how crazy some competitors are for not taking up Lloyd on a training offer, I think about this kind of stuff and imagine that those competitors might have the same kind of reservations about it.
For watching from the outside though for amusement value, it is working on me.
