makes no sense if they ban because of blood of cuts or stuff like that maybe. i dont get the hitting opponents on the ground thing, i assume they don't show dream or sengoku or anything else right?

are they that worried about children seeing it? can understand that but if thats the case then why did not ban it at first? people get punched on the ground in almost every single fight.



JUST SCRAP

I don't feel it's that bad to be honest. UFC was usually on well after midnight, so it's not like a lot of people actually watched it. Another reason I don't understand why they had to cancel it...

Oh and by the way, the guy who negged me for my first post in this thread without leaving a name because he thought I negged him without leaving my name and wanted revenge... I didn't.

The Germans, who's most well known public figure slaughtered millions of people, have a problem with people getting punched while on the ground? Makes sense.

Comparing the cancelling of a tv show with Nazis? Makes sense.

You simply cannot compare the autocratic dictatorship of 1930's-40's Germany to the banning of a sports event, that's ridiculous. In fact, if anything, the television laws of Bayern are incredibly liberal in that they feel willing to censor what they consider to be too violent. Not something I agree with obviously, but still not nearly comparable to Nazi Germany. The German state, which is currently quite a progressive, liberal one, has made numerous laws since WW2 to stop the victimization of minority groups, this isn't overcompensating, its attempting to build bridges after the atrocity of what was the Third Reich.
