    don't really care about Akren one way or the other, but I'd be fine if Barnett never fought again. I'm half-convinced the reason why dana reversed his opinion on Josh is that he's never publicly had an ounce of remorse for killing Affliction single-handed.

    I still can't bring myself to root for Mir in this bout, though.

    And the lack of acknowledgement of his previous use by zuffa is a great illustration of the companies real feelings on PED's. Regardless of the lip service they'll pay to get a little positive press, they'll never take a step more than they absolutely have to in order to reduce PED use in the company.

    Unfortunately for the clean fighters, PEDs and their effects sell tickets.

    People love to see the super-hero body and the brutal KO.

    I think MMA and baseball need to implement a policy right now that one failure equals a breach of contract and a 18 month ban and a second equals a lifetime ban. MMA would have its issues but the ACs would need to get on board and honor such a system.

    If the juicers want to go overseas, so be it. I just don't think we're tough enough on it over here.

    I know I'm oversimplifying things with the players union in MLB, but I think Selig lost a HUGE opportunity by not coming right out and banning ARod for life, stripping him of any titles and declaring him forever-ineligible for the MLB HOF. Selig has the biggest hardon for PED's in major league sports, I think if anyone was to do it, it would have been him, and it could have set the bar for other leagues to follow.

    He should have said "MLB can forgive you taking PED's when you were young, and when you felt you needed to do it to keep up with a preponderance of other players who were abusing them. MLB can NOT forgive you lying about it. Dishonesty has no place in America's sport."

    Even if ARod appealed and won back some privilege, the message would have been sent.

    dana gives not a single fuck about PED's as long as they don't impact overhead.

    If the juicers want to go overseas, so be it. I just don't think we're tough enough on it over here.
    ...and that's exactly how I'd market it. Use patriotism. It may be good for "lesser" countries, but it damnsure won't fly in the good ol' USA.

    Askren said the truth, but the only point of doing that was to begin a confrontation.
    So Barnett is actually right too. Few people know about Askren, and his style will not help him. So if he wants to be recognized he must talk shit.

    Tough to say who's the biggest attention whore, Ben Askren or Miley Cyrus.....

If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee

    Years ago she was like 8 or 9 She hasn't made any porn or is screwing everyone. She's being provocative to move past Disney. I don't buy it at all. She'd like everyone to believe she's bad but probably isn't. Regardless, I wouldn't turn it down. A few years from now maybe not.

    I'd like to see more of this. If someone loves the sport they compete in, and they believe that somebody else is dishonoring it then they should bring light to it. More athletes should do this kinda stuff. Who gives a shit if it is their place to do so? I also think that more pitchers should be throwing heat at A-Rods dome.

    I've got to agree man. No mention of it at all, just "this guy won the title, then fought overseas" with no explanation of why. Having said that, Askren is still an insufferable guy.
