More newsflash, just because you and 3 more guys on this board like the troll, it doesn't make him "The peoples champ".

hahaha, the only reason i opened this thread was to say something like - peoples champ? which people?

I love Chael and I love the fact that he will be champion soon and you will all have to accept and be sad.

Newsflash, you can't just disown the ethical and moral implications of all your actions on the job, in a particular environment or under any chemical influence. You are ALWAYS responsible for your actions.

It's not like a guy can sexually harass some chick at the workplace because he's being a "tough boss" but comes home and is a nice guy and it's all ok. Because hey he's just putting on a persona in the workplace. Or it's not like you can get drunk and sleep with your buddy's gf, but it's ok because man you were hammered and outta control. Or massacre a bunch of people while you're tweaked out on crack. Or act like dicks behind the anonymity of the internet but walk around like misunderstood angels in real life.

I see this kinda excuse making all the time ... fact is people use these fig leaf covers as excuses to do things that they were repressing anyway. Whatever they do is part of them. And whatever your actions, you pay for them regardless of whatever excuse you put on it.

Case in point, the fact that Tito just talked shit about other fighters and disrespecting legends for "marketing" his fights didn't keep those pissed off fighters from spanking him and knocking him out, or his disrespect coming full circle and guys like Mitrione humiliating him now that his chips were down.

And Sonnen's time is coming. He's just setting himself up for the big fall... I liked how he called out Anderson originally because of how arrogant Silva was being, but his lying, cheating, childish ass has gone way too far. I hope Silva knocks his head off all the way to Portland.

Political correctness is ruining this country. I cant even call something gay without someone acting like i just killed a baby. Societys balls have dropped off and it is all because sensitive people create these groups and protest and everything else on ever little freaking thing out there. I swear there is a group out there protesting for every little thing and they create issues for people just because they themselves are born with extremely thin hippie skin.

Political correctness would me whining about racism or sexism or some imagined insult etc. in Sonnen's comments and demand that the courts/society etc. clamp down on it. That's not what I'm doing. I believe in free speech and free thought and I'm certainly not asking courts to fine Sonnen or make him issue an apology for hurting women's/brazilian's feelings etc. He is free to say whatever the hell he wants and I'm free to think he's an idiot for saying it.

You guys seem to be confused about the idea of free speech. Just because I agree with his right to say something doesn't mean I have to agree with what he's saying. If someone talks sexual shit about another guy's wife, the husband has full rights to knee his smug face into pancake.

Besides, political correctness has nothing to do with disliking a guy for blatantly cheating and roiding. That's illegal and unfair to the real warriors who don't use that crutch. If anything, you guys are the ones being politically correct with this "hey, leave him alone, everyone's different, we don't know the full story about his steroids, don't judge" blah blah ... that's what political correctness is. Whining about "not judging" when clearly someone has done wrong, legally and by the sports rules.

Freedom doesn't mean lack of accountability.

Chuck used roids, Fedor used roids, they all use roids except a very small group like penn and serra, and sonnen was not even suspended for roids why are ou ignoring the facts, and no that is not what political correctness is, political correctness is people feeling they have a right to act upon something that offends them because they are whiny morons and they are self indulgent assclowns.
I see people everywhere going boo hoo Chael offended brazil and me and blah blah blah.

Um ok yeah Chuck used roids and Fedor used roids. While we're at it Bambi was clearly on meth and Winnie the Pooh was a major pothead. Only a handful of guys like the Diaz bros have never done any drugs.

Sonnen got caught, what parallel fanboy universe do you live in? He was suspended for use of an illegal substance and having unnatural testosterone levels. Synthetic testosterone is classified as a steroid.

Chuck and Fedor? Not so much. Heck if you were even based on likelyhood I wouldn't be so amused, but a pudgy undersized heavyweight and the most famous beer belly in MMA? If you're gonna level accusations against such unlikely candidates, at least back it up with some tests or facts.

Naw, it's much easier just to pick out two random fighters from my username and not bother with dumb technicalities like proof.

And not being politically correct means never being offended and doing nothing if some guy pats my wife on the ass? haha no that's called being a complete *****.

So by your logic if one pudgy guy was on roids, all pudgy guys are automatically on roids. Santa Claus must be a raging mess then.

Let me help you out. Barnett got caught. THREE times like you said. Chuck? Fedor? Proof?

And no, whiny interviews by a handful of fighters accusing "everyone" of being on roids doesn't count as proof.

Also, Sonnen did get suspended for steroids:

http://sports.espn.go.com/extra/mma/...ory?id=5878409

"Discretion" is a technicality that means he claimed to have legal grounds for that steroid. But he was way over the legal limit. Playing lawyer games with words isn't gonna change what he did.
