MMA team fighting - it STINKS!
« on: March 16, 2007, 03:09:22 pm »
Please, God! NO MORE TEAM FIGHTING! I get so sick of fights being cut off because one team lost, and the powers that be see no need to show the other fights. And Chuck Norris? Hang your head in shame over that WCL crap. One three minute round? Are you kidding?

Who are these fighters? Who cares? If they were any good, they'd be fighting for themselves in PRIDE, or UFC.

Anyone a fan of team fighting? And if you are, WHY, for the love of God?

I like team fighting,Jenn.I think it needs a little smoothing out execution-wise as far as the recent production snafu is concerned,but overall? GREAT CONCEPT. Great for the fighters.Gives the tournament format more zip and puts more at risk.Keeps the fighters employed and fosters more loyalty and usually terrrific fights.I'm talking IFL here,btw.Now,don't tell me you foresaw the Matt Lindland/Jeremy Horn thing going Matt's way.By knockout? come on.Nobody saw that.Renzo Gracie and Carlos Newton? (I thought Carlos won from what I was able to glimpse,but I didn't see the whole fight and allat) I like the whole thing overall,and IMO overall there have been superior fights the great majority of the time.With the team concept,there are better stories and more drama in the building,selecting and practice of the team. There are lotsa reason I like the team concept,but I can'tbreak all em down right now...but this is a good start.

I can sit and watch the IFL. But WCL? Nuh-uh. Maybe it's because I'm from Dallas and our team is run by Tre "One Pec" Tillerman. And loyalty? Eh, I train and fight for me. not my school. And honestly, I wouldn't care if "we" lost as long as "I" won. And I couldn't care if "we" won if "I" lost. How does that WORK? MMA isn't a team sport, no more than tennis is a team sport.

Depends on how you look at it.Track has that same feel to it,and so does the Olympic boxing throwdowns.They mix the best of one on one competition and team competition.Compete for your gym,your city,your state,your country...without sacrificing one iota of individual accomplishment.That's my take.The WCL? Haven't seen them,so I can't pass judgement on CHUCK's baby.I'ma go to YOUTUBE or some such and see if I can dial them up.

which league is on MYnetworkTV on Mondays?
isn't it IFL?

watch it 2nite.
and why are they competing with the WWE Raw crowd?  (and prison break/24) for that matter.


Listen to my entertaining radio show, "The Takeover: Top 20 Countdown" at www.top20takeover.VVCRadio.com.

Right on to the real and death to the fakers!  Peace out!
