    I remember coming here in 2012 and before and there would be legit MMA discussion with the rare fanboy threads. Now, main page is filled with "Who has best dad bod," "Conor is the greatest," "Ronda is ugly," and "Mike Perry is the most alpha male, sexy person, blah blah blah."

    Personally, I blame the moderators who have lowered their standards to a pathetically unacceptable level. I have no issues with an occassional lighthearted thread like "BJ Penn at the airport" or "Me and mah boyz in Jersey" which the forum went crazy on, but what was the fringe and childish has now become main stream. I get the feeling most of the people on this forum are under 25 and only got into the UFC after Conor and/or Ronda made it big.

    I'm pretty sure 2012 was dedicated to loving/hating Jones.

    I don't give a shit about his 'swag.' He's a good fighter but the fanboys are too in love with his looks.

    To be fair, it's an old school joke.

    It's always been like this, it's just worse now in the age of Youtube/Twitter shills.
    This PMP garbage has convinced me that up and comers are recruiting posters to talk them up.

    It's always been this way, it's only the fanboyz & the object of their desires that change...

    Yeah, I get the reference, I'm from that time, it's just a little funny that "The Sausage King" is upset with posters and mods.

    Yeah.

    Fuck Conor and Platinum fanboys. Isn't like this place is made of fanboyism anyway...all the 2004 Fedor fan accounts are for sure not the same thing as a fanboy.

    Let's all leave the Shogun and Fedor fanboys past their 40 years of age show their love for PRIDE nostalgia in peace...


    What i find funny tho, good threads get 0 attention, meanwhile all the older sherdoggers that complain about the members now join every troll thread about Conor or Platinum.

    Stop pretending there isn't good threads and good discussion goin on everyday man, you guys choose to ignore them.

    Dead on about the mods. None of this shit would have went on pre 2010 Espescially. This place at one time was at least 40-50% actual mma discussions with knowledgeable posters. Its maybe about 2-3% now on a good week.
