Every time I go there, I leave the site wanting to commit mass genocide. Enough's enough already! I feel like I should put my foot down, lol. Has anyone else stopped going to that crap hole?

As much as I hate most of the threads on there, they usually break the biggest news first. Sherdog.net got so many hardcore members that scan through the net for news that it's almost impossible not to find it first there.

Other than that, I hate sherdog.net. Sherdog.com is the shit though . My fav site easily.

I pretty much swore it off when I came here. You can't get a point across in their forum. Most of them can not respectfully disagree with your opinions. Instead they try to up their post count by calling you a tuf noob or whatever else they say. I'm not stupid enough to take it personally or anything, it just gets real annoying. I like to get others opinions and points, that way I can develop clearer outlooks on a topic. But over there a lot of people up there post count by doing nothing but flaming on other peoples post and all of a sudden they are mma geniuses because they got a colored belt.

There are a lot of reasons to dislike the Sherdog forums but I still check them daily (I don't post though). I really do understand why you hate them:
1) The same topics over and over again
2) People bashing anything and everything even without reason
3) People thinking your post count means how smart you are
4) False links
5) People saying fighters are overrated after a loss
6) People overrating fighters after a win
7) The basic stupidity of at least 75% of the people on there

IMO though, the Mayberry Lounge is good, though it's not about MMA, and with some patience, you can find some really good posts.

I never posted at sherdog and don' t plan to. I read one thread after GSP beat Hughes and felt sick to my stomach.

In fact it turned me off to MMA forums in general. I was a member here for a couple months before I started posting.

Yeah, I am still a white belter there so I rarely post unless I can't help myself. They do have some interesting topics, but posting is a hazard for sure.

Yeah the whole post count =mma intelligence thing over there is just ridiculous. I just had to register as a new member cause I got an ip ban over there for "bashing" frank mir by saying he got brutally ground and pounded by pade pano and made my first post the day and in the thread I responded too there was at least 30-40 "tuf noob" comments by "yellow"belts and "black belts" boosting up their post count.

I have been posting there since febuary of 2005 and this forum is 1000000x better then sherdog. People actually respect each other. I love you guys (grouphug)

not to nuthug mma playground, but yeah this site is way better than sherdog. I can honestly say that Sherdog can make you lose faith in humanity.

That said,the fightfinder is gold for researching fighters.

I never post on the forums anymore and rarely read them. Something unappealing about reading page after page of people insulting each other in L33t speak.

I'm a member of Defend.net, sherdog, and MMAplayground
and out of the three MMAplayground runs circles around them all.

Sherdog forums are for insane idiots that enjoy making fun of white belts cause they have no life outside the net, that's probably why the color of there belts mean so much, it's all they got going for them

Defend.net's forums are decent, it's not very active though but still not to bad.

this sites just awsome, out of the couple months I've been here I've seen only one flame war.. It's nice how much respect people have for each other here

We should play the "Get Banned from Sherdog" game. Organize a mass attack that will give the mods something to talk about for a while.

Sign up (if your IP hasn't been banned yet) and just post insanely stupid stuff and see how long you can go without getting banned (time and/or post wise)

yay

or

nay

I win. And I wish I had known about the game first. I went down for praising Boondocks work, basically. That, and comparing Foz's reaction when Boon finally got the boot, to Charlie finding the golden ticket in Willy Wonka. He must be more of a "Glass Elevator" guy.





You have been banned for the following reason:
Fighter bashing calling Don Frye 'James Thompsons Bitch' - Abusing Moderator in PM's.

Date the ban will be lifted: Never

aaahhhh, never?

Thought I'd give it a try. My first topic: GSP vs giant marshmallow man from Ghostbusters.

Here's how it read:
GSP would obviously have problems with his opponent's size but the marshmallow man is made out of marshmallow. GSP would have the advantage on the ground and has more well-rounded stand up but would GSP be able to control the pace or take the marshmallow man down? Any thoughts?

see? now, thats a quality thread!

lol, good one. I wasnt bashing Frye, I like Don Frye. But it is undisputable fact that, after that fight, Frye was indeed Thompsons B-word.

Was that you, bro? I was cracking up when I read that. Yeah, alot of ppl thought the JTWW stepped out of bounds with Foz, but most of them don't know what exactly happened. I got banned for calling him out - and I was being VERY civil.

Chuck Liddell vs Giant Penis... Chuck liddell is the greatest 205er there is but i think a Giant Penis can take him. The penis will "shoot" in and take liddell down. From there it will be all giant penis GnP. The penis will slam down on chucks lips and chin over and over til the big finale........when chuck gets tko'ed.....


i win.....only my second post on here ever.....

This is by far superior to sherdog. It's good having constructive conversations and troll free threads. This is my first time in this forum and i was talking about this subject with my buddy the other day. i love the concept of this site!

Here is a example of what would have happened if you had posted this on sherdog.

-Flamer
-Noob Whitebelt
- Ass Munch

Thats just a example. It just wouldnt happen here. Unless you count me just saying it
