No way Sherdog is one of the best MMA sites on the net. The forums might not be very good, but all the other things it has like the fight finder, radio broadcasts, and up-to-date news keep it at the top.

I agree. That's why I mentioned .net instead of .com. The forum sucks, but the other parts are great! I will continue to visit the .com for the latest news, but I won't be visiting the .net forums anymore. Hopefully the forums here won't have all of the teenagers logging in. Actually if this site eventually forces a paid membership then things will remain professional around here.

Not all teens are bad! I'm only 16, and i don't think i'm a stupid poster by anymeans :P and having to pay for this would suck! i can't get a paypal account!

sherdog is like the new york of mma : lots of people, lots of cool shit, lots of bullshit, dirty yet has a certain charm

this place is like vegas : everyone from all over the mma world come here on vacation as tourists, gambling, camps are like hotels. if we can post porn then that would be the escort service....

I think sherdog is great , except for the forums. I'm glad they have no intention of letting this place degenerate into a place full of childish name calling.

and if the forum here does defenerate into a place full of childish name calling, then I think I'll find another new site to move too.

Sherdog.com=Bad
Sherdog.net=Good

I use to visit the forum but anytime I posted anything. The mods would jump all over me, and if you look at my post, they were relevent to the conversation at hand. I don't like trolling, and I don't allow trolling on the forum that I mod on. With Sherdog.com, if you have the white belt, they make it seem that you have no clue as to what your talking about. I think the reason this site has grown so much is because of the fantasy aspect of the site, it's just fun.

Everyone knows Sherdog is the biggest MMA site on the net, who would be the runner-up?

All I can say is: The "wah .net wah" crowd who have since left, have made it a much better place for us still there.

Thanks for your efforts in making Sherdog better for us.

I'm suprised how easy it has been to moderate so far, hopefully if we can create a forum with a good foundation of posters and maintain the credibility of the main MMA forums then who knows where this place will be in 6 months to a years time.

A fun bunch of people who would always complain about the forums being crap, yet they continued to post about the decline, making useless threads and generally being on a twenty four hour, seven day a week peroid.

Good times, they were the emo of the Sherdog world.

I love the site, something new for people who have never played a game like this before and the set-up is awesome. Lots of interactivity and pretty easy to get started I must say. With that said I don't think they'll "end" Sherdog, as that site is also getting bigger by the day.
