    Ive been looking for 2 days now and I cant find the

    "Master Carlson thinks your a Creonte" picture.

    Could someone help me out - I know its not really your jobs, but it makes me laugh, and I thought this was the best place to get it.

    Thanks in anticipation!

    Creonte was a character in a play or television show that Carlson Gracie liked. Creonte was a traitor, so Carlson called anyone, who he thought betrayed him and left his jiu-jitsu team, a Creonte.

    How is it pronounced? Much like Tanamou!, I feel this must be an addition to my vocabulary.

    Cray-on-tay?

    7 replies and no picture!! arrrrrrrrgh!

    Ive always pronounced it - cree-on-tay.

    Traitor is how I understand it and I believe that it was used in the desciption of people that had taken advantage of his kindness and then left.
