Beating The Internet
Nobody is making enough money to pay the pool players anything. Ask the streamers on this site. If the players demand money no big deal. They won't get uploaded...problem solved
You're right! All the money being made is by the vehicle for the exposure. Which in the "internet" world should be done privately with their own infrastructure. And this is a huge point of the post, is trading the value and exposure of the players and sport, for the vehicle to reach the public. But sadly, a private site can work just as well as youtube.
