Who else was annoyed by the commercials on spike

Have you guys noticed how many commercials spike has? not just during the fight , i mean that was a given, but has anyone noticed the time spike give to commercials is nearly 50% more then any other station?

then the thing that wore me down the most was yesterday " fights are commercial free" bollshite, there was more commercials then actual fight time EASY.

i hope that they never put a card on spike again.

Yes the amount of commercials was beyond annoying. I know people complain about HBO, but atleast you will get a high caliber event without commercials every 2-5 minutes

You're wrong. The only fight they said was going to be commercial free was the main event Cro Cop v Gonzaga. Obviously there was no need for commercials.

Keep in mind that we saw it after it was edited because of the time difference *remember when they bleeped out Bisping swearing?*

Strategy so they could probably hore more commercials...bastards.

seriously my mom was sittin down next to me and she finally decided she wanted to see what mma was about(she doesnt like violence) and then she had to sit through a girls gone wild commercial every break which she doesnt appreciate cuz she is religious and hates that stuff. i mean most ppl watching prolly dont mind at all, but if mma is to become a mainstream sport than it is going to have to be as family oriented as you can get. i think its good that bisping apologized after cussin

Commercials are how the people get paid, it sucks big time but you have to take it with a grain of salt, at least we did'nt have to pay for a sub-par PPV.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

It was beeped out, what's the big deal? Spike chooses the commercials, not the UFC, if you want to ***** about it, wait till they get to ESPN, then you'll have G-rated commercials.

The time delay probably has more to do with the 6 hour time difference than it does ripping off an audience that paid exactly $0 to see the event.
