    I thought he was giving out naked pictures to those who worked hard in practice or something.

    If Rousey picks her nose is that going to be a topic of discussion too?

    This is interesting. It is a rookie coach but everyone loves a winner. Maybe it will pay off.

    Discussing her very recent win by KO is not exactly a trivial point like your nose-picking quip seems to suggest you think it is. It was a big moment in MMA.

    Basically he is saying, we're Bethe, Patriots are Ronda, step up your game or this is what will happen to you.

    If I thought that would happen to me I would be highly motivated to get better.

    Except it really wasn't. She was fighting someone who had no place in even fighting her in the first place...had no top wins in her entire career, was a blue belt in BJJ, and has been training for four years (originally to lose weight)...yet people are training to paint it into this sort of Ali-Foreman type situation.

    Are the Falcon's going to go down and play an elementary school team? Because that's what Ronda is doing at 135. Except Ronda isn't an NFL team she's more like a B-level high school team that lets a couple special kids play as well because winning isn't everything.

    Good point... Ronda is so influential that the team was negatively impacted last year by not having her as an example... I never would have thought off it that way...

    If the Falcons can play CFL teams then maybe Ronda Rowdy's 190 performance would be a good motivator for them. The problem is, the Falcons are the Bethes and Cat Alpha's of the NFL. Bush league motivational strategies.

    What he's saying is that if these players are motivated by Ronda Rowdy's 190 performance then they have neither the mindset or the skillset to be winners, which was evidenced by their performance the last couple years. Time to rebuild in Atlanta, folks. Maybe Tebow?

    I think that was the point... Showing that she is on a completely different level than her competition... At least that's what the coach said...

    And if you've never heard of painfully dragging out a shitty analogy... Well, just saying
