4th paragraph down, second sentence, "Mac (Danzig) didn’t want to read, and a couple times I told him....."

that is the very definition of pressuring. As a coach, Hughes knew that his fighters will do what they are asked, if askes enough times.

i really didn't care about it, if he wants to show they guys a little about god, then let him as long as it doesn't interfer with training.

You cut off the quote. He said a couple of times he told him HE DIDN'T HAVE TO but it was a good read.
You are as good as the producers of the show

LOL. That he is.

"I wasn’t worried about any negative reaction from the guys because I really stressed the point that if you wanted to read, you could, if you don’t want to read, you don’t have to. Mac (Danzig) didn’t want to read, and a couple times I told him, ‘hey, it may be interesting to you. You don’t have to take some faith from it and I’m not trying to change your mind or anything, but there are some really interesting stories, in the Old Testament especially.’ But he didn’t want to, so I didn’t ask him anymore when I got the impression that he wasn’t going to."

There's the whole quote in it's entirity.

i was just showing the sentence to look at. i wasn't there to see it personally but it sounds like Hughes was kind of shoving it in mac's face. on the show we saw hughes waking mac up even though Mac walked away from the group

Why are you guys making such a big deal out of this? Hughes gave them a choice if they wanted to read it or not. I'm not a big Hughes fan, and I wouldn't really care if he asked me if I wanted to read 9 pages from the bible. Like Hughes said, there's no books, magazines, phone calls, nothing. He just wanted them to relax for awhile.

It really doesn't matter.

I ddont see why this is an issue, even if you arent religeous I will agree with Hughs there is some very interesting inspirational stories in the old testament, Somebody previously asked wether the discussion would change wore it a Muslim coach handing out the Koran and as much as by all rights the discussion shouldnt change it definatly would. And who said atheists are the most persecuted?!?! It isnt catholics or atheists Im not Muslim by any means but unless you have been living under a rock for the last 5 years how can you argue the fact that Muslims arent the mosts persecuted?!!?! I dont care who people would vote for president but I guarantee if you loaded up a plane full of people and then brought on a gay, a catholic, an atheist and a muslim and gave the passengers the choice to kick one off then 10 out of 10 times the muslim gets the boot.
