Tapout....

I don't mean to offend anyone, like the big retard or that little angry dude, but does this all just seem like a big promotion for Tapout? I mean I'm pretty sure Mask didn't die to advertise the company even more, but this shit just doesn't seem sincere to me. What do you guys think? Are the Tapout dudes using this more as a promotional stunt or do you think they genuinely care? Or both?

I think they care but it does seem a little tasteless.

It seemed like there was more commercials than usual and also, they had an empty seat for him at the event. I mean they could just honestly be very upset, but it really seems more like a big advertisement to me. I could be 100% wrong though...

They're attempting to cash in on their heightened profile since Mask died, IMO.

I don't think guys like that know how to not shamelessly advertise their product.

The funny thing is that I couldn't really stand those guys before Mask died. But none of those advertisements bothered me at all. I think they got pretty emotional when the camera went on them with the empty seat. I didn't see anything wrong with it.
