Jared Shaw Surfaces, Doesn't Want Blame For EliteXC Demise

0

Jared Shaw talks the downfall of EliteXC with Ariel Helwani at Versus.com:

“Unfortunately, while I would like to say that I am hurt, that’s just the unfortunate reality of life. There’s haters in life, there’s jealousy in life. There’s people who are misinformed. I am used to feeling the brunt of hate or gratification – however somebody wants to treat me. To hear my coworkers come out and basically throw stones, slander me, and insinuate things that are not true, it showed that they didn’t know what was going on. I think everybody wants to be in a position of power. Look, the one job that I think is kind of like fantasy football or fantasy baseball to everybody is being a matchmaker, and not everybody can hold that position in a company because not everybody has an eye for talent and because if you got too many chiefs in the kitchen, there’s no cook. So, in that essence, some people felt like they wanted that opportunity, and I am sorry that when they made a statement it wasn’t heard or that they didn’t have a say in the company’s future. I did my job, and I got nothing bad to say about anybody because, at the end of the day, I can hold my head up high and know that I am real human being and I don’t need to take pot shots at others to make myself feel better or to make myself look better to future endeavors. I know what I brought to the table, and I think people from the inside who really understand the sport, I think they know what I brought to the table.”
