Don't really get why people will continue to defend this guy to the death because of his goofy "normal guy" attitude that's earned him praise and fortune throughout his entire career. It's time to let go.
I'd agree that those whining the most about what they think Griffin is/was/should be need to let it go. Griffin himself just needs to work on not worrying about what those people think.

I don't understand why he doesn't just say "Yeah I didn't implement my gameplan properly and paid the price, credit to Anderson. I left the cage because I was p*ssed off with myself and my performance and just wanted to get out of there. Its in the past now though and its time to move on and keep training."

Why is that so difficult? If he just addressed things head on people would stop going on about it. Doing an interview and ducking questions everyone wants to hear answers to is pointless. He hasn't exactly helped himself in all of this, I'm sure it would be a lot better for him if he just dealt with it head on.

Haha, right, cause that's what it is. It's everyone elses fault why Forrest is being a pud. It's our fault he stormed out of the ring like a baby. It's our fault he can't accept the loss and needs to be as bland and silly as ever in avoiding questions he doesn't want to hear. Then he and some people on this forum acts as if the media is "bad" and evil for asking questions about the Silva fight and that it's also their fault. It's hilarious that if this was BJ Penn or Tito Ortiz, he'd be getting crucified on this forum for this kind of crap. The way this guy is defended on this forum makes me believe he's the next coming of Christ. I mean, really? Forrest is the victim and the fans and media are the ones to blame? Wow.

People, Forrest is still catching shit because Forrest is STILL doing shit worth catching shit for. You act if he's done absolutely nothing and people are just randomly spewing off different shit.

Hopefully once people are finished cleaning up this guys menstrual bleeding instead of him cleaning it up himself, he'll get back into the cage. If only Wanderlei would stay at 205. Good probability of knocking this clown out.

It's the nature of the business. He obviously can't handle the the pressure. You think he's the first athlete to suffer a tough, demoralizing loss? Come on. The way he's handled himself since the fight has been downright pathetic. He shouldn't get a pass because he's a like able guy.

Think about it, if it were Lesnar in Forrest's situation, there would be ZERO sympathy.

Straight up, Forrest can't control his emotions and IS acting like a baby.

I would end up getting K/O'd by forrest cuz I really cant stand the cute distancing he does with the wuestions...i would end up being like look asshole you got knocked the **** out you took off out the cage....what was going on in your mind at that point......


While I lay on the floor he may answer to the camera man.......


Props to the interviewer and the patience he showed rolling with it.....

I seriously would like to hear him speak somewhat like an adult AS he HAS done in the past while still being Forrest......


I'll always love him though...Im gay that way....

I think...although Michael can speak for himself I think that he is pointing out that Forrest always is kinda that way and believe me I know Carson wants the answers we all do but he realizes Forrest will give them on his time table......

I want what you want dude....I want a sit down interview..leave the jokes.......


Basically Carson is pointing out this is Forrests coping mechanism....

This is what I was looking to say in my last post. I'm not even mad at the guy, people have to cope with getting shit from hundreds of thousands of people in their own way. How good would your first interview be after all the fans and critics were waiting to eat you alive?

If Forrest is worried about what the fans think, he shouldn't have brought it all on himself by being a baby.

The guy has had enough time to reflect. Shit, the guy got married which I'm sure was a great moment in his life. He should change his tampon and actually man up to this loss instead of avoiding the "tough" questions he knew he would be faced with, with these one word "funny" answers that he's obviously doing because he's still being a baby about the whole issue.

Again, this crap with "coping with peoples shit." Once again, Forrest is the victim and did nothing to earn this criticism. Haha, wow. Nice to see Forrest has to rely on his delusional fanboys to defend himself while he sits there pounding down his midol and being a jackass.

if you don't want to hear people supporting Forrest, try not to involve yourself in threads like this. No sense in driving yourself crazy trying to fight off all of us Forrest supporters just so you can call him a baby.

IMO Forrest is fine. Being mad at him for all this crap is just useless at this point. Who am I to Judge him anyway?
