qft. it's basically blogging-quality. bad writing, bad editing, weak sourcing (mostly based on social media) and quoting from interviews available on the internet. very lazy, very sloppy.

I'm sure it can be contributed to unfavorable votes for Brock Lesnar.

Do you know why GSP will never be ranked 1?
Politics. He already brings most cash. Gotta hype someone else.


That is just one example. there is millions more.
Jones was already ahead of GSP in P4P on the UFC Rankings. He leapfrogged GSP on Sherdog's rankings.

Maybe should have used one of the other millions of examples.

Is it a surprise that the ufc would pick and choose who was on the panel? Its a niche sport that always contradicts itself with decisions

Then I saw who started the thread. And all questions were answered.
lol

What? You have to love people who do not know what they're talking about. You can throw in your condescending, feminine like comments all day long. But you're not fooling anyone. The funny thing about sticking your head in the sand is that everyone can still see your ass.

Its easy to shit on sherdog when you, yourself, contribute nothing to these forums and only offer commentary on a very basic, elementary level. Sherdog kept this sports head above water in dark times and has been leading the way for many years now. Lets not pretend otherwise.

did I miss anything?
I suck but all you do is post in my thread...

Crying about me calling people shills is ridiculous, when its a retort to people posting completely off topic, with ad hom attacks sans counter points in the first place.

You have an account on sherdog, but seem to think it is a fan club, with zero journalistic worth on the game. This is something i can never be accused of. Something else i dont do, is post TS hate without even reading the OP. I dont tend to instigate these little pissing matches, but i am very good at them.

Maybe this is why people like me, get latitude, and people like you get laughed at.

They had to dig deep to get 70 and not include Sherdoggy. I suspect some of those 70 aren't well qualified.

I didn't cry about anything. Just pointed out that all you do is start 4-5 threads a day and then post the same anti Zuffa/UFC crap in all of them.

If you're really that concerned about the 70 journalists selected why don't you do something productive about it and email/call and ask them why they selected who they did and why certain journalists who would seemingly be more qualified aren't on the voting panel.

Its just amazing to me that you spend so much time in the UFC forum spouting so much negativity, but obviously love mma so much. It would seem you would want to spend more time in the worldwide mma forum than post about hating all various aspects of the ufc non stop all day.

But to each their own. Your threads are entertaining at least.
