Why people are still on Affliction re: Golden Boy

I’m sure Tom Atencio and the gang must be scratching their heads wondering why the big narrative coming out of their second show is “What’s the deal with Golden Boy?” They should actually be kinda glad it’s gone this way … it’s taken peoples attention away from the more natural question of “Will Affliction survive to hold a third show?”

Still, because no one has laid it out, let me explain why people are so curious about the details. Affliction doing an event with Golden Boy is like showing up to the senior prom with the hottest / coolest chick in school on your arm. But then people find out you had to PAY her to come with you, it kinda changes the whole dynamic of the thing, doesn’t it?
