    I don't recall Snakrattle making any posts, just posts articles so I don't know him.

    I think Sherdog was coaxed into the no Dana White bashing threads and maybe even the WEC as a "heavyweight" and Affliction and Dream as "contenders." As Dingo and I said, years ago they were cut off for a while and I think they have been far less critical of management since.

    Sherdog has far more Dana fans than Dana haters, so I don't see why you'd let one person go on and on how great the guy is without letting someone with the opposite viewpoint go off on him (after all, forums are supposed to bring out opposing ideas). If they thought the forum was flooded with anti-Dana comments (never as popular as other topics), they could have told you to take it to the wasteland instead of telling people its a bannable offense.
    People still bash dana on a regular basis so its not like the rule is being enforced with an iron fist. I think its more that some people were getting out of hand cluttering the board with anti dana threads. The threads werent presenting anything of substance the way you and dingo usually do when you bash dana it was more just ripping him just to rip him.

    You are one of the biggest anti ufc fans I know and even you usually provide some reasons.

    Anti management P-Jersey; if you thought I was anti-UFC you would be asking me why I watch each one of them?

    They could have moved it to the wasteland - years ago people used to make the same ridiculous Rickson jokes and they were moved there (you could say Rickson by armbar all day there now when Fedor's name is brought up). This is still a sticky - he is more protected than the fighters are. I believe (with no real evidence) that the UFC enticed them to have posters play nice. "the lowest of the low" as Dana has referred to people who chat on the internet about mma salaries.

    I know you have slowed down your UFC watching considerably and you didnt even watch the gsp/penn fight. You complain about every UFC card and hype up every non ufc card.

    I will go to sherdog now and test some dana bashing and see if anything happens.

    You are so full of sh- -. I don't bash every card. The Affliction cards were exceptional (payroll verifies that), they held Pride-UFC matchups that I hoped for years ago.

    I told you I was very excited for the Penn-GSP fight, but balked because I had 2 wrestling trimeets that day (one out west of me, the other in central NJ) and I had to get up early the next morning for a tournament at the NJ shore.

    I watched the last one live even though I had to get up at 6am the next day for wrestling.

    I admit I am not into UFC as much as I used to be.

    UFC used to hold an event every few months and same with Pride. If the world cup became an annual event, I wouldn't find that as interesting either. I've become less interested in a lot of sports from watching them too much, I still watch every UFC event and everything on HDnet.

    Ok occasionally you say a card is pretty decent. Anytime I attempt to say something good about a ufc card you say I just prefer to watch tuf fighters and that bisping is my favorite fighter.

    The affliction cards had some big name fighters but most of the fights were mismatches. The main events were definitely good but a josh barnett vs. gilbert yvel didnt leave me anxious with anticipation.

    I am hoping the third affliction card has a few better match ups. The main event should be a good one and babalu could possibly fight ortiz would be a good fight imo. They also have been in talks with fighters such as Overeem, Kharitonov, and Mousasi so they have the ability to set up some good fights.

    I said the NYE card this year and last year were excellent (I was excited for both). Amongst the all time greats.

    UFC should have matched up Ortiz and Sobral when both had better records and were talking about one another. I'd love to see a 3rd affliction, but I doubt Tito or any other fighter can turn it around

    UFC 97 has 2 very good fights, UFC 98 looks very good, and UFC 99 could be very good too.

    I just saw that Barnett vs. Fedor is supposed to happen in July. I also just saw though that Iole is hinting at Couture fighting Fedor at UFC 100. He said he has nothing to do back it up but he is Danas right hand man.

    Randy Vs. Fedor? Please no! I'd rather see Randy vs Chuck IV.
    Lets go Brent!
