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.



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



I've tried most of them, too. The worst was FiveKnuckles, though. Full of MMA elitists and DCRage-type Mods. PG has been the best by far.

Wow, I just looked and I've been here since May 07. Does that make me OG status or something? Then I take a look and see that I've only got 1700 posts and realize that I probably wouldn't deserve such a status even if one were available.

Some of my favorite moments?

I remember what a noob I was when I started. I looked back at some of my early posts a while back... Jesus I was retarded.

40oz's avatar was truly epic.

The 360 Mafia debacle.

I actually got warned once by Svartorm for fighter bashing. If I'm not mistaken it was for clowning a bit on Travis Lutter.

hotrod's thread about the kid with bowel issues and the unpleasant sexual experience that ensued. Seriously hotrod- DC's not modding anymore. It's time to find that story and resurrect that thread. I've never laughed so hard in my life. It's a tragedy less than 5% of the members of this community even know what I'm referencing right now. This injustice needs to be reversed.

I remember winning the first place in Wagers for season three. The top prize at the time was a cool $500. I gave half to my wife and spent the rest on a pair of oakley's. That was the turning point for me. I actually dropped fantasy baseball and went into full-on hardcore MMA fandom. I didn't actually go back to following baseball until last season. (btw- if anyone is looking for a new league member next season look me up)

It's been a long time, but time sure flies. It took me a little while to catch on, but since then I can say that I've visited this site nearly every day in the past several years.

I haven't been able to find it, I'm sure one of the mods can, I remember talking to one of the mods about it and he found it hilarious.

I think I was heading into my senior year of high school when I joined. High school feels like another life time ago, graduated in '08.

I don't even remember how I found this site.

Where has the time gone

Come to think about it, I think I took home $250 for second place. I remember kicking myself I wasn't premium at the time.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Yeah. I feel like I've used every conceivable combination of search words in google over the past two years. I've definitely come upon some pretty startling discoveries over that time. But I've never been able to find that story.

Mods- Please, please I beg you. There must be a way to search banned, locked, destroyed threads. This story is pure gold. Hell, make me a mod for a day and I'll do the legwork myself.

That certainly does make you OG status.

Well atleast to me. Anyone joined in 07 is OG to me and receive an OG Prop every once in awhile.

FlashyG is a notable exception that has received an OG Prop though. He joined in 08


Has anyone ever noticed join dates that were changed???

A glaring example would be emfleek. I could have SWORE he joined in 11/08.

Maybe I'm delusional

If it wasn't deleted you should be able to find it by going to the "my posts" section right below the tabs at the top of the screen.

Thats how I dig up old threads I've posted.

Edit - I didn't find the thread but I think I might have found what happened to it

Pretty sure it was deleted within hours of getting posted. I remember exactly where I was when I read it. I was doing some after hours work at the school where I help out with the tech department. I know that I read the article before calling it a night. And if I'm not mistaken I logged on from home the next day to try and find the thread to copy the link but it had been deleted. By the time worked at school again I had forgotten all about pulling up the history to get the link. And ever since then it's been eluding me.

Since I can't really remember all the glorious details of the story, it's really hard to explain and relate the story to anyone. So I never mention it. But everytime a thread like this comes along I remember how fantastic it was. But who knows, maybe it's not as great as I remember it. Perhaps it's only become so great in my mind because I can't access it now. Maybe it's become the stuff of legend to me and I've got no one to share it with. Maybe the story doesn't even hold up today... You know, like when you try to watch an episode of MacGyver now only to realize that it wasn't nearly as cool as you remember it being when you were in 3rd grade.

The story of KPRO's avatar when it was a cut out of HMC's face was pretty much the best.....oh and I forget who it was (I know it's an awesome poster though) but he basically made the raddest post where he posted a massive prop for himself. Classics.....
Worse time was when I was deployed I trusted an old camp member with my password and he nearly got me banned using my account to harrass another member after he was in trouble with the mods himself. A little mod action and my wife saved me.

I stopped posting regularly on the forums because of DCRage lol



Me too, aswell as quite a few regulars at the time.

It's a much better place around here nowadays, i just wish i had the time to post as much as i used to.

I feel like i must have missed the ''MMA Army thing''. Anybody care to summarise ?

When I was 18 my girlfriend at the time was finally ready to have sex. I, as one might expect of a 18 year old, was excited. Neither hell nor high water was going to stand between me and my final destination...
