In REALLY don't care to see banner video of guys kicking the crap out of each other when I visit a/this site. Two thumbs down.

And how is that not considered adult content? May as well just start running adds for cigarettes while you are at it. If this site needs $ that bad…let it die. There is no pride in the gutter.

What I don't understand is, how did you get to get to be an architect without being able to think through something as basic as this?

DURRR.

People have bitched into the wind about the UFC ads a time or two.

It's like this: Pious OP with lame comparisons followed by a few "get Adblock" posts and an insult or two... which I may or may not be making. Thread dies, starts over again in a few months.

There is no "Pride" at all since the UFC merger! Heeheehee.

You, my friend, are a wanker.

Not one recorded death in UFC, Pride, WEC, Strikeforce, Dream, Sengoku, Bellator, KotC, WFC or ProElite events. A small handful of career-ending injuries, probably less than ten.

Much safer than climbing.

Besides, its AWESOME!

You get it or you don't. And if you don't, you suck.

its not free speech, you can't say whatever you want on this site.

I do not agree with his whiney-baby rant, but dammit I defend to the death his right to say it.

Truth.

I like UFC but I can see how people would not like it. They should have a right to bitch about not liking it even if I don't agree. And then I get to make a witty retort about mturner pulling down Freedom's pants and giving it sloppy head. Cuz if he's not gonna keep his mouth shut, that's the price he pays. SUCK MY FREEDOM!!!!!!111

When does Evans verse Mr T, anyway? When does the Spider play with Lyoto? Why can't they get a sumo wrestler to sit on Brock's face? What happened to the lovely Ariani?

You know it's a slow day at rc.com when a rant about ads gets the most hits....

I used to block the ads, but I haven't on this computer, as it doesn't seem to slow it down in page loads. But hmmmm....

It has just occurred to me that it probably does take more MB's to have them on. I am using one of those mobile modems, and only get 5 G's per month. Adblocker, here I come!

good call, first post and thread title

has to do with generating the calm space necessary for non violent, cooperative rather than competitive sports

somethin like that, in actuality, enough <complaining>about the advertising will eventually result in some kinda action

as for me, i am good for a few $ about 5 as a contribution towards having a violence free site

no slur on the unlimited fighters, my <native peoples> representative and my us army national guard connection are both into cagefighting

hmm thinking
of course, my usual credentials are those of taco stand soda jerk and a ski hill nightjanitor ... ... so my thinking may well be off on this

I doubt he's an architect yet, more than likely he's still and intern (or worse yet a student!) waiting to take and pass all of his licensing exams.Tongue

Yeah, I like Evans too...he's from my neck of the woods, Niagara Falls, NY.

I know it's bloody, but relative to boxing, its safer. In MMA, there is no "standing 8 count" so you can continue getting your head punched in after you are already concussed. You can't get back up and get punched more.

I don't get any UFC ads, but I do see ads for Sarah Palin's book, and not always when I'm in the soap box. A few questions:

i) Would you rather fight in a UFC match (at the highest level), or would you rather endure Palin's book?

ii) Which would leave you more brain damaged?

iii) You guys get all the ads with violence and sex appeal, but the Canadian targeted ads are all completely tame. That's bullshit. I guess that wasn't really a question.
