  2. Listen to that guy on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R231U4ZG0YDNHD
  3. I always guessed that it was something to do with Turner being Southern, and the NASCAR/IndyCar link.

  5. Ah, I see. Yeah, I guess that's a fair assessment. Annoying though - I reckon this current incarnation of Mousasi would have as good a chance of taking the MW belt as anyone currently in the UFC, and that's taking into account that 185 is a shark tank.
  6. Is Mousasi still considered 2nd level, though? Despite the last loss to Jacare, he's 2-1 in that series, he avenged his loss to Uriah Hall fairly convincingly, and he's probably about to destroy Machida. Everyone else he's faced in the UFC, he's beaten.
  7. Bear in mind also that Mousasi and MacDonald left the UFC of their own volition; that Reebok deal, coupled with Coker's scouting ability, could end up doing a lot more damage to the UFC's roster in the long run.
  8. Good of you to share pics of your football coaching.
  9. Sorry, have edited to try and make it more readable. Couldn't find that "Tx" option to remove formatting.
  10. We used to get business cards like that through our letterbox, from a Mr. Malik, and later a Mr. Khalid.
  11. It's also important to remember that fans, even smarks, aren't necessarily "set" so that only bigger and bigger spots will impress them. One of the upsides to knowing wrestling is a performance is that fans both experienced and casual can adjust their expectations accordingly in order to enjoy it. Recently, I went to see Kaiju Big Battel at Alexandra Palace, and it was a shit-ton of fun. The wrestling in the matches was very basic, very few big or complex moves, a fair few done quite sloppily in places, and the biggest spot they did was a top-rope huracanrana. But everything was centred around the sheer silliness of the promotion - wrestlers playing characters like kaiju monsters on LSD, like Unicorn Party, Dr. Cube, Dust Bunny, etc. Possibly the most unique feature about Big Battel is that they have loads of cardboard boxes painted to look like buildings in the ring by guys outside it dressed like builders, and whenever one of the wrestlers gets slammed on one, it gets a massive "OHHHHH!" like they were being thrown off the top of the cage. The slams are never more than body slams or regular suplexes. Point being: there were loads of people there, including Progress fans who'd never seen a Kaiju Big Battel show before and didn't know what to expect, and, judging from the noise, everybody was into it. They all knew this was bloody silly stuff, and that the wrestling action was in itself nothing to write home about, but they treated everything like it was the big event of the weekend. There's a sort of implied agreement between fans and a promotion that, in essence, the promotion says "we will entertain you in this way", and the fans respond with "OK, we're liking how you're entertaining us". A bit how like someone might behave to their partner like he/she is the only person they one they've ever been with, even though both know that's utter bollocks.
  12. That's heart-breaking. I wasn't particularly a fan, but I know he was massively popular, and I've frequently heard about how nice a guy he was. To imagine he was so popular and respected, yet felt alone enough to take that step is truly tragic. I'm sure he's at least found peace now; can only hope his family and friends will be OK eventually, sooner rather than later.

  14. Saw this and it made me think maybe @BomberPat has gone and created a new heel faction. https://inews.co.uk/news/uk/jersey-terrorised-feral-chickens-cull-complaints/?utm_source=fb&utm_medium=fb&utm_campaign=ijp&fbclid=IwAR1dz--JctiYwkNPuqSXArwQcyqG_N_Xq_ZvEWfScHBFFgz8sM0XdPB7150 Jersey is being terrorised by 100-strong gangs of feral chickens waking up locals and chasing joggers Residents have been making complaints about the birds, which have also become a traffic hazard. Two small culls have been carried out, but they continue to cause chaos, the Environment Minister has admitted. It is believed the chickens were once pets which were abandoned, before rapidly breeding. They now roam the British island in 100-strong groups. There are no foxes in Jersey, which means the chickens are running round unchecked, without a natural predator. ‘Modest culls’ Environment Minister John Young said: “We are now dealing with very large numbers – the culls that happened were quite modest. “We are in a situation where we have got animal lovers on the one hand and where we have got those who are experiencing a nuisance on the other. I can’t pretend to sit here and say I have got an answer to that.” A total of 35 chickens were killed in the first two culls, carried out by a private pest controller. Mr Young said his department has received 40 complaints about the birds so far this year. Tough battle Local authorities on the island say they are fighting a tough battle, and have urged people not to feed the chickens, as it encourages them to breed. William Peggie, director of Environment for the States, said efforts to come up with a plan to tackle the issue had been hampered by the loss of the states vet, but with an interim replacement now appointed discussions could take place to find a practical solution. He added that they did not know where and when people were abandoning chickens, making it hard to crack down on it. Under nuisance legislation, landowners are able to “dispatch” chickens if they are causing a nuisance, he said, and action could be taken if a feral chicken was being fed in a way that causes a nuisance. Feral chickens are not protected under the animal welfare law because they do not belong to anybody. Who's gonna kick yer ass? D-Generation Eggs.
