Lesnar's illness has really brought out the UGLINESS in forums everywhere

I'm not singling this forum out, it's actually been better here than most places, but the fact that so many people have tried to kick Brock while he was down with insults while being seriously ill is disheartening to say the least. I've been banned on forums before for even questioning Fedor's GOAT status, yet many people are floating around unpunished for wishing ill will and health on Brock, even death making jokes about his situation.

As it turns out, Brock will probably be okay, but I can only imagine how much Fedor, Nog, BJ ect fans would have reacted if their favorite fighters were dealing with the same situations and people were actually trying to terrorize them while they were. They would be tarred and feathered. There would be bans happening all over the place and utter outrage.

This situation has shown a sickening double standard. It's not okay to hate any fighter, and I think that's something that needs to be gotten across.

I may not always cheer for Brock but I respect anyone with the balls to compete in MMA and step in a UFC octogon. If what was describes as the illness Brock has, its life changing for him, to the point where he might have difficulty picking up his son in his arms. I don't wish that to anyone.

Some people simply think if Brock is sick they wont have to see him fight on a PPV they paid for. Guess what, its not about you this time. We should all wish Brock a quick recovery. Period.

Right kick, Hospital.
Left kick, Cemetery.

I think we all agree that we wouldn't wish this on anyone regardless.

I havent seen any of those posts here and I wouldnt really expect too many.....some forums discuss issues and still maintain the boundries......This is one of them.....

Clearly the man is sick and he is going to need to get better...all we can do is wait, and wish him a speedy recovery...

Kinda makes me glad we have solid mods around here.

As far as the Sherdog forum goes, I don't know why fans even bother to post on there anymore. It's just page after page of nonsense. I had an account there once, but I asked them to delete it.
