Look man I don't wanna get into some silly argument cos we've always gotten along well but you're way out of line here IMO.

Like it or not your first statement did include every former member of this place who's now a regular over there and when Miles called you out on it you just started acting like a dick.

I'm not sure where you (or your anonymous source) is coming from when you go on about the old staff treating this place "as there own personal e-playground where there only concern was to include a small select group of members. They seem to have forgotten that they too were once n00bs here" because I felt that they put in a lot of hard (thankless) work and effort into educating other less knowledgable members about MMA.

Jesus, d'you think most members here would know half as much K-1 as they do without all the work MLS put in???

They went to great lengths to broaden peoples horizons regarding MMA so they didn't just become standard "UFC fans" by creating several sub-sections for other orgs (which have now been compressed BTW) and providing play by play on a lot of events.

The funniest thing about you claiming they don't care about new fans is that there's a new feature just been put up over at FL.com with the main intent of accomodating newer fans with a thirst for MMA knowledge.

TBH there's only a select few members left here who's opinions I value, which is why I still post here occasionally, but seeing posts like some of yours in this thread just make the place look like Sherdog.

Your anonymous friend claims that FL.com will die because we won't attract enough members but the core group over there is probably larger than the one on here, this place just has a lot of idiots, trolls and people who rarely post that make up the member count. Not to mention there's a lot of people that visit FL.com to read the articles and just don't wanna post on a forum.

TBH I don't care what you think about the former staff cos I know that they made this place great for a long time, their quality as moderators/admins has been proven by how good of a website FL.com has become already and it's only gonna get better with them in charge.

I don't give a shit if you wanna "stay loyal to MMAF" but there's no need to slag people off who can't come on here to defend themselves, and then blow up and act like a wanker to Miles when he calls you out on it.

thats your opinion and your entiltled to it....that doesnt mean that your own need to jump onto a debate between "miles" and myself is necesssary....Your opinion has usually ben different from mine but in the end we come to common grund......


as far as the Fl. site...if you dont know who ran this shit before MLS and Plazz and MJB23 then thats your bad......their names were coppershark and TB and i can tell you that they are the bread and butter of this site and as far as plazz staeting his own shit....thats just it he started his own shit...LOYALTY...its hard to come by now days and they dont posses it....as fr as this topic..maybe my statement was a blanket one...fine it was.....SORRY...but if you cant tell thatim showin love for the place that we all met in the first place then go over there....you and like 20 other people post there and in the comming months when that site fails i will still be here to make my points.....FTR...i love Plazz and his sense of humor but their fundamental behavior was weak and it got old.......That link....just so you know came from a mod that has been posting here for a long time and it was real....there are people here that have been here for a while and seen alot go on...thats where i am comming from...if you cant respect that then fine....i have said what i wanted and im done........you and "miles" can continue to post here all you want on this exhausted point but the thread is bout hand speed, nd i have allready given my advice on that......


you wanna really talk bout this then holla at me through a PM otherwise you seem like your sold on the other side.....enjoy it over there.......its more like a popularity contest than an actual forum.....I NEVER SAID ANY OF THEM DONT CARE ABOUT FANS.....you say you dont care what i think about the former staff..........did you ever get to know the former former staff.......cuz they didnt pull Plazz and MLS shit and they ran this site fine....you joined right..........


reppin Coppershark and TB...........BTW as I stated..that post came from a respected member of this forum that has been here through all the changes and now is part of the staff...but what would the staff know.........



Right or wrong...Im done with this.........My colors dont run..........

For instance, hold a tennis ball out at arms length, drop it and grab it in mid air with your opposite hand, keep rotating hands. The motion you make with your hands (grabbing the ball) should mimic the closing of your fist as you throw a punch.

That's just a basic exercise that can make a slight difference with your muscle twitch fibres.
Oh hey, look, I'm actually addressing the topic rather than filling a good thread with childish bickering that belongs in PMs. How novel.

This actually reminds me of a number of tennis ball drills that I used to do as well. Most tennis ball drills that I know work mostly on dexterity/accuracy, but there are a few that help with handspeed too. For one, have someone toss 3-4 tennis balls up into the air in front of you, and try to jab/jab-cross all of them as they're falling. It helps with accurate punching, and you can add/subtract tennis balls depending on how fast you are. Another one involves hanging a few (5-6 is usually good) tennis balls from the ceiling in a line or in a circle around you and keeping all of them moving at all times with punches. It helps with accuracy and handspeed, and if you put them in the circle (around you) it can be a good way to improve head movement, slipping, ect, if you also try not to let them hit you.

Apparently you did have plenty of time to mod because you kept PMing those guys asking if you could be one. I don't see how I'm kissing their ass, I'm just defending them and myself from a moron who finally gets the balls to speak when he thinks no one else is around.

And when did I do that? And I don't think you understand what the term two-face means, clearly.

I must be a joke if an even bigger joke like you recognizes me as one. You're an idiot, you never have a worthwhile opinion and that's why everyone laughs at your retarded posts.

It's not my fault you can't make it clear who you were addressing. It's like me saying "white people are assholes", then someone claims that I'm making generalizations, only for me to get angry at them because I didn't make my initial statement clear when I meant "rich white people".

Learn basic English, it'll do wonders for you.

Everyone's wrong once in a while in MMA, but I think my predictions have been pretty accurate, just judging by my MMAPlayground scores anyway. Really, who are you to make an assessment about MMA knowledge? You don't understand the concept of capitalization at the beginning of sentences. And don't make me laugh. You have a career? Hopefully it doesn't involve you interacting with others because you're neither civil or educated enough to do so.

Further proof that you don't consider what you say to be worth reading over. Needles to sat? Idiot.

Those guys pretty much left by the time you signed up, so don't act like you have a clue how things were run around here.

I'm a bitch because I never had a problem with how they ran things? Everything good about this site has gone to shit with rampant retards like you over-populating the forum. Those guys kept jackasses like you in check, and that's exactly why you didn't like them. If anyone's the bitch it's you, seeing as you never had the balls to say this to any of them.

Finally someone who is addressing the thread. I'm going to give your exercises a try, as tennis balls are pretty good for a lot of things in relation to stand-up---like conditioning yourself to tuck your chin.

I'll tell you who is ******* tight and should chill out: dempsy is ******* tight, F>A is tight, CC420 is tight and you last two ****ers were both here when I first started posting. Two classic members, shit went down and it sucked balls for everyone involved. I miss plazz and MLS, they were cool as ****. But the shit is down and over, nothing we can do to change it now. I've heard both sides, and it doesn't matter who was right or wrong and maybe both sides were at fault. Can't we just let the drama go and enjoy the shit on the forum? maybe post some titties, or some jailbate in cornbreads case :P

Since this is a thread that has the potential to be mildly useful, I'm going to leave it up for now.

Still, knock the juvenile crap off.
