So 14 days is ok, 15 is too much? I don't think you will find another show with more respect for its listeners. We are not "passing off the show". We even mentioned on the show 14 days ago that there would be no show last week due to holiday messes. I take it as a personal slap to say I don't care.


Settle down Wombat. I for one was just teasing with my comments. Whenever you got time to the show is fine by me. I know what it's like being a father (especially during the dark ages: 0-5) and having very little free time. That said, what's Cheapy's excuse? Does he actually DO anything during a typical day? What happen to all those blog posts he was promising us? It seems to me you sacrifice the most for this site and show and receive the least reward.

I voted for the Cagcast. I really like the show, that's why two weeks without it seems like a long time. Hopefully next year will go back to a regular schedule...

The thing I don't understand is that CAG is much bigger/better than Screwattack. It's like Obama campaigning to be the honorary mayor of Peoria.

This poll seems rather skewed, the options for best website are only IGN, Gametrailers, and Gamespot. What the hell is up with that?!? Seems like they really don't like 1up/the 1up Show, etc.

To all the haters: give Cheapy and Wombat a few weeks off for the holidays, Grinches.

the poll is a SA poll so they took nominations from SA fans and just choose the top three (where they could ) in each category. the lack of 1up love isn't reflective of screw attack the organization it's reflective of the screwattack fans.

You guys are great -- I love the show! I do miss it when it is not on -- but, of course, completely understand that you have lots of responsibilities which take priority over the CAGcast...Happy Holidays Wombat to you and your family!

This was meant to be constructive critisism. You also mentioned on the show 14 days ago that you would have a show last week. You guys are horrible at keeping a schedule, but we have come to deal with it. You should not let people like myself get to you in this matter, you are way to sensitive about this. You also need to keep in mind that even if you had a non-interupted year next year and this happened again, people like me would just bring it up again in the future. We do that because it is in our nature to only remember the negative stuff.

In my book, if I say I am going to do something, I would follow through with it. I would not blame my work, commute or even my infant daughter for not getting things done. I would delay if need be and try to get my things done that I said I would get done. Look at it this way, if you did not pay your mortage on time there would be penalties from your bank, so you would follow through on your (promise to the bank) payment. There are no penalties for you guys if you put off the show.

Now the show asks us to donate to Childs Play and vote for it as the best podcast. Maybe if you guys had a continues show within the last couple of weeks, CAG could have surpassed the $30,000 goal by now. But doing the show when you feel like it and not promoting Childs Play is probably one factor why it is doing so bad now. Notice how much it jumped after Cheapy posted a blog on the front page? Well, if it was advertised consitantley on the show, it probably would have a bigger impact. Than again, I do not need to mention that to you since you do work at a marketing firm of some sort.

Pretty true about the donation thing but you really should lighten up. He did say that he was going to be busy last week.

Agreed with the charity point: If you ran shows all the way through the month, the opportunity to press people constantly would've presented itself.

I know this point is moot now that there is a CAGCast out, but maybe the CAGcast itself needs to change. An hour and a half of pre-organised and improvised material isn't easily by any stretch of the imagination. Maybe if it was limited to an hour, or 45 minutes, it would be easier?

Looks to me like the CHild's Play goal will be met
