Does it really feel like it's been 5 years fellas? I can still remember staying up till 5 in the morning to match pride and dream with you guys, all the the propfests that happen during christmas, and the whole mma army thing Post up your favorite memories of your experience here, just a little something to talk about before the next events.

Gosh I haven't even had two years here... it seems like a hell of a lot longer than that though!

I dont know if i have a favorite PG memory... but i do recall butting heads with DCRage immediately after joining. Fortunately he wasn't a mod anymore Actually, I remember butting heads with a few people when I first showed up here. See, I had never heard of a forum troll before, so I wasn't aware that I had trollish leanings Anyhow, I got sorted out by the mods and things have been glorious ever since

I stopped posting regularly on the forums because of DCRage lol

i havent been here as long as some you OLD GUYS, but even 2009 has a been a while ago.

i remember getting put in my place by a mod for calling frank mir garbage. got myself banned for a few months. not a great memory but after that i figured out that the PG is a great place to have serious and fun conversations.

a good memory is when i fought for a title at a local casino and posted something about it and a shit load of PG members supported me, even a few were at the show (not for me, they just lived in the area) and rooted me on. this place is fuckin awesome.

It feels longer than 5 years sometimes.

Let's see, I think I was still in high school when I joined.

When I joined the site I was 16. I think that was grade 10, I'm not entirely sure on that though.

I've only been here a few years. Just a refugee from a wasteland called Sherdog.

Didn't plan on staying long, hence the lame screename. Figured it would be like all the other MMA forums. Next thing I know I'm knee deep in props and enjoying the hell out of the fantasy game.

I can't believe I have tolerated all of you for over a year now. Like Pmoney, I don;t think I have a favorite moment either. I enjoy the camaraderie from this site and from time to time, as you all have witnessed, I do enjoy a good ole fashion flame war - it keeps me on my toes for when I need to flame someone in real life.

Hahaha, I started posting on here because I was banned on bloodyelbow and wanted to voice my opinions. I had been using the site for years but never really ventured beyond the fantasy game. It took me maybe a week to become a daily poster at that point. I've tried posting on every major mma forum and this one leaves all the rest in the dust

Been here from the beginning. Even when I didn't post as much I would lurk like crazy.


Time flew by for me. So many changes and so many forgotten names.


I don't really have an especially favorite memory but winning a camp badge with Sabotage Inc. Was pretty cool

What really got me hooked was finishing 2nd in wagers my second year here. I think I won like $150. Wasn't even premium either. That made me go premium, and have been ever since.

Never thought I'd post as much as I have. I remember thinking when I first started, I'd never reach 1000 posts.

Also remember the whole 360 mafia bannings, and being sent pm's from them, trying to get me to join their new site they created.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I also kept the same avatar for all but about the last 2 months.

Something else I'm "proud" of

Also the inventor of the OG Prop
