This is from the Spike TV topic, but I decided to make a new topic because it was irrelevant there:
I want you all to think hard and long about this. Do you honestly think GL is going to ever repent his ways and release the originals again in any format or any broadcast? Is he going to listen to anyone, in particular some fringe website on the internet few people (less than 500,000) know about? Sorry to say it, but GL has put his boot on our faces for good, and the OOT as we know it will no longer exist outside of bootleg copies. Let's be honest here, there is very little chance that we will see LFL cave in again and release something even among the lines of the GOUT. GL has said the final word on the originals years ago and you cannot admit that. I'm sorry that I have to take a defeatist attitude, but deep down it is the only option left to us. You can go ahead and vent on the internet about this, but you cannot change what has happened. GL has committed a serious cultural crime, I know that, but no matter what you think or do, you cannot alter that fact. The direction of SW over the last 15 years has gotten further and further away from the OOT, and there is no doubt that LFL will be less caring about the OOT in 2025 as they are today.
