Another reason you don't want to be broadcasting what go's on there is Someone with MORE time then your bro could look to transfer into that garage knocking him one step down the ladder .Hell what happen's if 10 people now see what go's on there and transfer that would not be to good for him.
Oh and as for that whole slowing down thing trust me it doesn't always work .This job is changing day by day week by week and it hasn't always been for the better .I think people who have gotten some time on will agree with me .
