    I love Flowrestling, but this communist analogy is just silly. It's just an analogy, not a reality. Does Martin deserve praise for his excellent work with Flowwrestling? Of course he does. But this has nothing to do with communism vs. capitalism, and everything to do with interest-group infighting. Martin is resorting to jingoism, when he needs to dominate the marketplace.

    Here's another analogy. Some coaches worry about being well-liked, Others worry about dominating the competition. Maybe Martin should set about to dominate wrestling multimedia and broadcasting, instead of worrying about what awards he didn't win and why. His success is his best revenge. Sooner or later, folks come around.

    As for me, I'm siding with he first one to offer the gnocchi with pesto, or rigatoni with vodka sauce. Yum!

    yea....martin is just missing the point. He is a fan favorite, but he doesn't follow NWMA bylaws....so don't get bent when they don't reward you.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    No, the "abuse of power" line was a joke aimed at Champ...

    I'd been angling with Schlottke to get rid of anonymous repping for a while, even before you went and had your fun with the system being set up the way it had been.

    Now tell me it wasn't warranted. Heck, the Caspian coulda had the world record and he would have, had you not flipped the switch. Not even Big deserved as much red ink.

    Communism might be over the top,but what about the thought of Flo not even being considered.I would think that word was used out of anger for being dismissed from consideration so quickly by Jason Bryant.Really suprised most responses on this thread have dwelled on that word, rather than what a great resource Flowrestling is.

    We all realize what a great resource Flo is, but do you really think that Jason Bryant really said those things? Come on. That's not even in JB's nature. THe truth is, Flo Wrestling is NOT a journalistic Web site, so it would make no sense for them to get that award. If it was for best blog, maybe, but not for a journalism prize.

    I first hand saw JB and Martin having a "conversation" at Fargo. I didn't hear much, but I could tell they weren't exchanging addresses to send eachother Christmas cards!
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.
