These are the same people who nitpicked and dissected every word he says, like using the "normal" for people not in athletic competition etc, and hating him for it.
No, I disagree with this.

There have been loads of people on this forum, who were Bones supporters who have come out and said that Bones has disappointed them and they are no longer fans... and that is just on this forum!

Me. Before I had Machida in my sig, the LHW name was JBJ.

But besides me, there are loads of people who are JBJ fans. But look around, you're the only one REALLY sticking up for him. Either people have turned, or they know that what he did was ridicuslous and are keeping their mouths shut. I usually don't give a fuk about the 'politics'. I like fights, it's as simple as that. Him being cocky on twitter or whatever doesn't effect me because I respect his skills in the cage and he is an exciting fighter. But when the politics result in fights getting cancelled, that's when I start to hate someone.

Name one. Preferably one with previous comments praising jones and not some dude with 20 posts claiming to be no longer a bones fan when he probably never was.

What I do see are hypocrites like this:

You must have forgotten how Jon "Spineless" Jones got his title shot. Let me refresh your memory, it was as a short notice(2-3 weeks)injury replacement. Injuries happen & fighters should be expected to stay on the card and fight the injured fighter's replacement.
Oh when Machida turns down the fight, it's smart. When Jones does, it's spineless. Even when Jones has a TITLE TO LOSE.

The irrational hate would've been there regardless.

All I've ever seen you post is how you wanted Hendo to KO jones and how you disliked his personality. Yeah maybe you respect his fighting abilities but so does everyone else who irrationally hates him.

And plenty of others are defending bones. John4345 or whatever his name is, limba, and anyone who isn't just reacting blindly to the scapegoating job done by dana.

Bones isn't even one of my favorite fighters, but I am defending him because the hatred against him from the very beginning strikes me as complete bias and hypocrisy.

Liddle, what difference does it make with Jones fighting someone in 8 days vs the 22nd? He is ready for a fight, he had a training camp etc. If he is willing to fight Chael or whoever on the 22nd? Why can't he do it on the first?

A fight is a fight, but people are looking pass what he said about strategy etc. **** that shit, had Jon Jones not been a greg jackson fighter he would have fought any man on the 1st.

Look the card cancellation isn't technically Jones' fault but the UFC have come to him and said 'look we're in a tricky situation here after all we've done for you can you help us out here' and Jones has said no. Personally I understand to a point but its annoying that in the past Bones has claimed in interviews that he is a compasionate caring honest person - he has even said he is a company man.

This situation has showed him to be a selfish man driven by money. So PLEASE can he drop the good guy act now!

Oh I agree the hate would have been there regardless.

Got to be honest though, I dont have the time or the energy to scroll through 20000+ pages of Bones hate to find posters who were once fans.

The differences between Machida turning down a fight and Jones turning it down is completely different.

Jones was offered an out of shape 185 pounder after having a FULL training camp and was scheduled to fight at the event anyways. Machida was offered a fight with a guy who has choked him unconcious, with 8 days prep time. I'm sure the next time Machida faces Jones he wants to be fully prepared, otherwise he's 0-2 against the champ and we all know what that does to fighters.

I was always half on half off with Bones. Now, I'm off.

Jeff Hougland can't pay his daughter's school clothes with an apology. According to Dana Jones knew they would cancel the card if he didn't step up. Not sure who to believe.

He speaks the truth, although I wish he took the fight.

And for people who now become Bones haters, his drawing power will go up anyway. This got a lot of attention in the sports world.
