Ok, I admit, as Sonnen's humour is about on the same level as this



he sometimes can be funny...

this, it's a little hypocritical to say something judgmental then after that, talk about "different taste". while in the first place, you disrespect those with tastes different than yours.

I consider myself fairly educated, traveled around the world, I speak 4 languages, own my company, raise a 10yo etc... and I for one enjoy Chael stuff. I know it's kinda fake, but I also know that to make up stuff like that, one has to be fairly smart, most likely a good length above the average.

in the Joe Rogan podcast, people can see a more "true" Sonnen, but I take it that it was too long to listen to for non fans. But even his most virulent detractors would have to admit that the guy's pretty smart after listening to that podcast.

anyway, haters gonna hate. if you don't like Chael, too bad for you because you're gonna have it for at least a couple more years in the spotlights. So much time you won't enjoy while others will just have a good time.

I don't like to spend energy and time about stuff or people I don't appreciate, it's just a waste. I could post "hate" threads about some fighters that I don't like but it just seems stupid to me to give my opinion to people who don't care and most likely don't even agree.

So no, Chael's humor is not for 12yo (my son happens to be that age, actually), if people get it and others don't, it just means that. they don't get it, if they did, they'd probably also enjoy it, but they don't, so they can't. it doesn't mean that those who do are stupid, it just means that they have the chance to get something and enjoy something that most people don't.

Those guys with "different tastes" you referring to are the ones insulting the fact that some people find this stuff funny. And then they go and bring up what is really amusing.

So maybe you should direct your post at the person who actually deserves it??

This tends to be kind of common though as most people dont read the whole thread but just take 1 post out of context and base their whole reasoning from it.

So you're going to talk down to people and say that if they don't like his humor it's because they "don't get it". Which is code for "too stupid". I find his humor idiotic and I get every word that comes out of his mouth.

But to each their own. Attacking each other over whether or not the man is funny or how mature it is is absolutely pointless. It's all subjective. Some people - like you - think he's hilarious. Some people - like me - think he's an idiot with diarrhea of the mouth. And here's the real shocker. Neither of us is wrong. He can be each of those things to different people.

Basically who cares who thinks he funny or doesn't think so?

Did you read the post he was referring to or just react? The person, Lidellianenko, stated his opinion on the summary of Sonnen's book. His comment was one of the first in the thread and was directed at no one. It was his opinion on the subject matter. There is nothing wrong with that.

People acting like he attacked them because he thinks it sounds stupid are literally in the wrong. Just like he would be for attacking them for liking it - which he didn't.

To sum it up I did direct my comment to the correct person.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

No one is talking down to the people that dont find this stuff amusing. Its people who DONT find this stuff amusing that are talking down to the people that do.

Here is an example.

Now how you can fault someone for responding to this in a negative manner is beyond me.

Like i said

Direct your posts at the correct people.

See my post above, Sideways. It explains everything. If that doesn't make sense to you nothing else I can say on the matter will.

His comment was an obvious dig at people who DO found it amusing whether he ment it to be or not. Its like me saying your post sounds like something a retarded person would write/think/post (Your pick). That would be my opinion right? and im not directing it at anyone. Its just my opinion on what i just read. But in reality my comment is definitely offensive to the person who wrote it. Just as his comment is offensive to the people who found Chaels book amusing.

But it is what it is. You keep doing you.

And yeah it was the start of the thread which is why he should have picked his words a bit better as to not insult anyone because no one was insulting him.

Just to add to what i was saying.

A persons comment doesnt have to be directed at someone for it to be insulting and it being an opinion doesnt change that fact. Most insults are opinions.
