Googled fantasy MMA, really liked the place but DC ruined my comfort zone so I've never fully gotten back into the site since his ridiculous threats of banishment.



He's the reason I didnt redo my Premium membership



The reason i never went premium at all.

The name still leaves a sour taste in a lot of PG member's mouths......

I skipped over the whole DC era thing.

I took my hiatus a little after I got banned but I wasn't banned my DC.

When I came back everyone was talking shit about him and I couldnt figure out why the last thing I remember before my hiatus was him being a mod and leader of my fight camp Sabotage Inc. (season 6 lhw champs)


Glad he's gone . He never wronged me particularly BUT I got the back of my fellow Playgrounders

I used to be a sherdog addict. An ex-friend (KingCreep) told me about this site and I signed up so we could compare fight picks. I just used this site initially for picks and some news articles. I then started posting here semi regularly after I initially got banned from sherdog (quoted an awesome Koscheck shoop that apparently wasn't allowed), created a new account, got dubs for calling Mir a dick, and have since been here fulltime. This is a far better community and I get more news on this site than over there. I rarely check other MMA sites for news because all the important ones get posted here (thanks to all you news hounds out there )

i went to his page on here to see what the big deal was and i noticed he's a premium memeber still but havent logged on in well over a year. did you guys go ape shit on him after he wasnt a mod? did everyone chace him off the playground?

I usually tried to fuck with him daily when he was a mod. After he was removed he didnt post as much.

Post #10 was one of the last ones I did

I found out about the playground after a buddy (chokesetterjake) told me about this site that was about fantasy MMA. I was like "they have fantasy MMA"? I've been a Playgrounder ever since

lol too funny dude. after reading about all the craziness with the camp banns (i'm not sure if he was involved with that) and all the unnecessary banns he gave out, it would have been a lot less crazy if he wasn't a mod. but i'm a noob here so what do i know.

I was banned from another mma forum many moons ago.

MMAPG seemed like a logical new stomping ground cuz you can do your picks, wagers, and posts all in the same place
