Watched the whole thing and I'm impressed on how well it was done. Even the awkward parts were entertaining. Highlights for me:

Eric's speeches.
Franchi breaking the Twipy
Kaneda making heads explode
IM taking best pin

Also, good to see Robin!

Question: Is it possible to like a podcast but dislike the podcaster?

When Kaneda was on Pinside, I was one of his most vocal critics. Everything from Fix-It-Felixgate to him getting drunk and throwing his money around rubbed me the wrong way. More negative points for being JPop's PR guy, referring to himself in the third person, his well documented drink throwing episode, etc. Dude was given more chances than most to adhere to Pinside's rules and couldn't help himself.

Having said that, his is pretty much the only podcast I listen to. I take what he says with a huge grain of salt, but I like the fact that he's given up on getting any major pinball guests and just says what he thinks. I get bored with other podcasts "Everything is Awesome" spin, not to mention the ones that spend a great part of the podcast talking about what they ate for lunch. I see alot of Howard Stern references, but his cadence reminds me more of Jim Rome.

The nod to Nate Shivers was also a nice touch.

Quoted from OnTheSnap:

Is it just me or was EricM really down every time POTC won anything?
It’s a really strange situation. POTC seems poised to make a sales comeback, yet Jack announces end of sale at the show.
The whole thing feels like a bewildering leadership mess up, and Eric is taking it pretty hard.
Will he stay at JJP after all this?

No doubt about it....he was pissed off.

Question regarding Eric;

Are the designers paid a flat rate or is their pay contingent on how many machines are sold?

If the answer is the latter, I understand why he was pissed.
