Demico Rogers on Rampage: He's probably not the best coach; should stick to fighting

http://www.fiveknuckles.com/mma-news...-fighting.html

Quote:
For the first time in the history of Spike TV's "The Ultimate Fighter" an entire coaching staff showed up late to a fight. Moments before Demico Rogers' first fight, the Team Rampage coaching staff was seen leaving to grab a bite to eat before the big fight and weren't available to wrap his hands or warm him up properly. At the time, nobody thought anything of it until it was apparent the coaching staff may not even show up for the fight at all. Rogers reflects on the situation.
"Yeah, it did affect me," said Rodgers. "Not having my coach in my corner there. It kind of messed up my head a little bit. If you see on the show, we actually had to go out in the hallway and find a guy that could wrap my hands. We thought we were going to have to go on without him (Quinton Jackson). Fighting is an individual sport and I don't think it really affected my performance in the cage. That's all on me. I should have taken it upon myself to warm up. Now I know. If I have to get myself warm, now I know to do that. As far as my thoughts on Rampage, going into the show he told us he's not a coach, he's a fighter and they wanted him on the show. Obviously he's probably not the best coach that's ever been on the show. He should probably stick to fighting."
After losing via anaconda choke to Brendan Schaub, Team Rampage remained on the sidelines while their man was left in the Octagon by himself with the disappointment of defeat on his shoulders. He was actually consoled by the opposing Team Evans.
"I honestly didn't notice at all," said Rogers. "I was just mad at myself. It really just didn't hit me until I was it in TV. I was like 'Man, that's kind of messed up.' I didn't take it too personally even when I saw it because I feel like it could have been anyone in that position and it was our forth loss in a row. He was pissed off you know. The coaches weren't doing so hot, the fighters weren't doing so hot. We were down on ourselves so I think it just happened to be me."

agreed. exposes himself as a bad coach once again AND it's hurting potential up-and-comers.

Demico is right Rampage is a sh-t coach. He was doing very well in the fight until he got caught in the choke and Rampage never said anything positive to him. He was just a douchebag.

does it occur to anyone that maybe Rampage is doing this for the TV exposure? He admitted in the last TUF that he's a terrible coach and that he hates doing it. I dont think he gains anything from winning the show or by coaching the next up and comer. I'm sure dana offered him a lot of money to do this, plus he gets more camera time to develop his resume for his "movie career".

My personal thoughts are that Dana had caught wind of the desire for Rampage to star in the A-Team...if you think of the last weeks episode, they are basically in the 5th week of the show.....

Point being by this time Rampage has to have given Dana some idea that he wants to be in the film....

Conspiracy theory:

Dana portrays Rampage in a bad light towards the end of the show through editing and the sheer fact that Rampage picked a horrible team.....i think that by the time we saw last weeks episode Page had decided in his mind he was an actor......

Just thoughts...

I thought of the same thing, Dana could really fuk up what people think of Rampage if he wants to. I almost hope he does, Page is a tool.

I'm hating on Page now but I still have no love for Rashad; although that was cool of him to go over to the fallen fighter that was getting no support from Page-- Ok, so I do like Rashad a little more now.

Problem is that what does a guy like Demico have to gain out of shit talking Rampage?
