    One of the topics that fans of all sports love to discuss is GOAT. Usually based on fans beliefs and opinions and emotions. Personally, I am not one of those.

    Even yesterday, just before the fight, people were blogging..."so if Lawler wins, will that make him GOAT?
    Fighters get on winning streaks, or beat a hyped up fighter, and suddenly we got another GOAT.

    The way Ronda was hyped was beyond belief. Few of us took into account that she was simply a very good MMA artist but the competition is weak in womens MMA. BUT the belief, opinion, emotion crew put her on another planet...Planet Hype. Then Holly demolishes her and suddenly she is elevated to nearly as much hype. And who is Holly Holm? just a very good player who seems to have matched up well w Ronda.

    Same for Conor fans who GOAT'd him into oblivion and he gets demolished. Now Nick Diaz is hailed as whatever but he has lost almost as many fights as he has won over his last couple of years. Now again with Lawler who won a few in a row and people forget that not only were several of his wins, very close decisions, but he was nearly washed up just 5-6 fights ago. Or Diesel being hailed as whatever and now cant win a fight. There are too many to mention, and very few real candidates.

    I think we need a name for fans who let their emotions get in the way of reason. The ones who scream GOAT simply too soon. Not sure how many of you guys remember Howard Cosell but he was the king of hype...he announced Monday night football back in the day and if some nobody running back had a 200 yard game on MNF suddenlt Cosell would elevate him to HOF level by the 3rd quarter.

    So these fans...should they be labeled "Coselian", in honor of Howard. Or the "too-sooners"...or nut hugger Goaters...or the hypo-manics? How about aliens from the Planet Hype?

    Anyone have a great name for those who start screaming GOAT too soon, or to scream someone is washed up too soon? Any artistic thinkers? Creative minds?

    You're right people were calling Cain the goat before the werdum fight. Since they jump to conclusions so damn fast why don't we call them the goat jumpers

    I don't know why, but I like this one quite a bit even though it is simple and could be considered redundant.

    I believe the correct way to say it to make it a title would be...balls-on-chinsters.

    You do get the credit for that input.
