ESports makes no money. That’s not a secret. All of the investors are hoping that somewhere down the line they can turn a profit because of how fast the market is growing. However, investors are starting to pull out because despite the growth, orgs are still consistently losing money. If E-Sports wants to be popular, they need to follow the model of professional sports leagues. Valorant has done a great job of that with franchising and a promotion system. But that is just one piece of the puzzle. Insiders like Adrian Wojnarowski for the NBA, Adam Schefter for the NFL, and Jeff Passan for the MLB have millions of followers because they bring excitement with every tweet. Why the f*** do you all care about a “hype video” of a player? I would MUCH rather get these leaks and feel more up to date than waiting around for these teams to announce their signings. Rumors and speculation are some of the most fun that I’ve had as a sports fan. Bringing that to E-Sports brings even more excitement to the sport because fans will be following these reporters in the offseason to get up to date information about their favorite team before the team announces it. I’m sorry, I really do not understand what George and other insiders are doing wrong.
