But his personal problems are very serious. Anxiety problems and addiction to pain killers aren't really anything to criticize someone for.
Well maybe when he was dealing with Scott Coker, Scott was dealing with severe anxiety. Karo didn't take that in to account did he?

If your personal life completely interferes with your career and costs your employer lots of time and money, it's pretty much the definition of unprofessional.

Karo is a hypocrite.

The first part of your post is absurd past the point of being worth commenting on.

Regarding the latter parts. I wasn't referencing his comments on strikeforce being unprofessional. And I am sure if you asked Karo if his actions were unprofessional he would agree. What I was saying was it is inappropriate to criticize a fighter with those conditions for not getting better as if he is willingly suffering from anxiety and drug addiction. Instead of criticizing Karo and disparaging him for ****in up people could have supportive of him and his medical conditions.

How is it ridiculous? If he's going to accuse someone else of being "unprofessional" while he himself is extremely unprofessional, but uses medical conditions as an excuse, then he should take in to consideration that the other party may have plenty of excuses as well.

The expression is "people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones".
