Here’s a short quote from the interview which sums up the motivation behind the shift to CrossFit and especially the Games and Media pretty good:
I did not want to broadcast the Games anymore. It took me two years to explain the difference between that and saying I don’t want the Games broadcasted. I want ’em broadcasted. I guess that would be nice. I think.
Do I wanna do it? Fuck no. Do I wanna stop anyone from do it. Fuck no, but I’m not doin it.Greg Glassman, 16:52 in the video.
