Do you find it annoying that Bones never faces consequences for his actions?

    We can be honest here its okay. Jones has done some things over the years and has never really gotten any flak for it. Just the fans.

    What do you think?

    I don't care.

    I know what I think of him.
    Great fighter. Hypocrite and narcissist.

    Dana was pretty pissed here, but he was cool with it the day after

    It's Dana so it surprises me about as much as star NFL players not having shit happen to them either.

    He faces the same fines and legal ramifications most of us would have; he's just rich so it doesn't really affect his life much.

    How many times did Michael Irvin get caught with cocaine/crack?

    Now he has a job with ESPN.

    Of course it was not just Jones fault. I get that. Dana should've owned up too.

    Jones should've taken that fight.

    No more than every other quasi-celebrity who manages to screw time and time again and never get their feet held to the fire. Hell Jones isn't even Beiber level screw up yet. Wake me up when he's Lohan level bad and then I'll be annoyed.

    No, not at all, not even a little. And neither do his most devoted haters. Because even if he were punished the exact same as everyone else, his decline would still be something that he did and had full control over and not something that happened because any of their great hopes so far were able to get the job done. And that would still be lorded over them.

    I can't see how anybody would consider it a priority to have action taken against Jones. It's not gonna make anyone feel better, watching Jones get a thrashing will. I recall during TUF season 8 with Junie Browning being that show's biggest tool ever and Dana's response "This isn't Survivor, we don't vote them off we beat them off". When it comes to Dana on MMA, it's one of those things where when he's right, he's right. The same principle applies here.

    Charles Barkley got a DUI with a whore in the car just a few years ago and he's the most beloved voice in American sports.

    I find it annoying especially considering the low T levels suspected for possible... other uses that came up in that thread. I won't say what that means, but you get the idea. His title should be stripped immediately.

    If he breaks the rules he pays for it. In this case it was the NAC that fucked up - not Jones. They need to pay him.
