    I find it refreshing to tell you the truth. Athletes in most sports come 2nd to the image of the brand. Seeing him say that Jon is a human being and we should worry more about him is a nice change.

    When you make it dirty, then it's not. Good to know.

    Good bosses do care, by being concerned for employees, they actually are helping their companies image. They want people to want to work for them. They want top performers at other companies to view their workplace as a good place to work. It benefits a company to make sure the employees well being is protected.

    You clearly don't understand this

    Lol, just checked your thread starting history. Several threads talking about how DC will win with ease before the fight, followed by several bitching about UFC/Jones scandal after the fight.

    Look what Jones does or doesn't is on him he isn't the bigger then the sport neither is Ronda or Conor. The point is if you are representing the company think before you go off especially after these lawsuits and funny gimmicks going on right now....

    Actually I hate politicians because they are liars. I'm giving Dana the benefit of the doubt because of his past behavior. What did he tell his friend Chuck when he got his 6th KO loss? He said man you are going to get hurt, you have to stop fighting, immediately. He didn't try to cash in on Chuck after that, he said its over.

    He could be lying about caring about Bones but I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Who the fck said the image of the sport is top.priority to begin with? Is it some divine rule to uphold the image of two guys beating the living crap out of each other under the structure of rules and regulations?

    Dana can do whatever the F he wants. He picked the COMPANY up from the ground. JJ is his employee.

    You Dont like it....go watch something else. Now personally I agree that Dana is being strangely calm about this. Maybe he has alternate interests. Maybe not. Either way he is not held under any type of law to uphold any image of anything and no that is not his JOB.

    And you think Dana is a good boss who cares for his employees? Something I wanted to make clear, this isn't your mid-level manager we're talking about. This is the president of the company or upper brass making a lip service statement when all he's done in the past is shown his present words are lies.
