You should know what it's like for him.

@Grapple, I think that AmdM is BobbyCooper. I could be wrong, but that's just what I think.
I meant who's Bobby Cooper, as in who is actually Bobby Cooper. Must have been around here before my time.

He can answer a phone, but that's not the point.

What I mean is, Diaz does interviews and shit all the time. He talks in front of thousands of people, confidently calling out GSP and shit. And we're not talking about the press conference here, which may indeed cause anxiety, but it's a phonecall to a guy he's spoke to and argued with time and time again. He surley doesnt freak out the second he receives a general phonecall from Dana. How was the fight arranged in the first place? Diaz was fine and dandy when he got that call wasn't he? Or the call to join UFC? I just think he couldnt give a damn what Dana has to say. The way he's thinking is that he's a fighter, if he fights, that's mission accomplished. He'll turn up to the presser but he doesnt want to deal with the suits any more than he has to, and he doesnt think he has to.

You can see all his activity before he was banned if you like. Interesting character.

Are people under the assumption that Nick not returning Dana's calls or texts is a recent discovery? The way I read it is that Diaz has never bothered to answer the phone to Dana or ever text him back. These are things he's probably never done even since his early UFC days.

I remember a vlog with Dana a while back where he said that "Diaz is different, he's not like the other guys, I walked past Diaz down the corridor before and he just blanked and ignored me, we gotta work with him differently". Diaz has always been like this, and Dana probably settles all of the media/contract arrangements directly with Diaz' management team, rather than Nick himself.

THIS is all I was saying.

I'm confused. I thought you were saying that Diaz doesn't (or shouldn't) get anxious when he receives a phone call from his boss. He probably tries to avoid all contact with Dana because for what ever reasons he finds it extremely uncomfortable, just like how he appears to be extremely on edge when ever a camera and a microphone is shoved into his face.

He probably does but not enough to not answer the phone. It's more like what you just posted. He completley blanks Dana, cause he wants nothing to do with him. Diaz is just a badass dude who wants to fight. If he was a WWE wrestler, he'd need to have a manager ringside

brb hating on Nick Diaz in every related thread
brb will never be as successful as Nick Diaz in any thing I do
brb getting really mad
Why would I be mad? I don't measure my life against others. I don't even really hate him. I just think he's an overrated idiot. That's not hate. That's dislike. I hate very few people in this world and no fighter will ever end up on this list. I need more from someone than idiotic actions to hate them.

You are the one getting out of sorts anytime someone even makes a joke about him. You give more of a **** about what people think about him than he does. So you just jump and defend him from every slight - real or imagined - and call people haters. As if they have to acknowledge and love the fighter who's balls are so firmly embedded in your mouth.

Guess what? We don't. I made a joke. You overreacted. Just like the last Diaz thread and the one before that and the one before that. Have you ever thought about calming down and maybe not living up to the second half of your name?

And, by the by, the brb stuff is as gay as 8 guys ******* 9 guys. Just sayin'.

Have fun frothing, Grap! I'm not returning to the thread to listen to you ramble!

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

Did Nick miss any press conferences before the BJ and Condit fights?
