I just wanted to put this out there, and I'd like to apologize to the mods because this may be a sensitive subject around the playground. But

I just have to say that in my opinion, Josh really is a cool dude. I feel that he tried to make the playground better, and so did everyone involved with the MMA@Work podcast. Not just that but on a personal level, he tried to put me up on game. Be it through writing for sportsatwork, podcasting, whatever, he tried to create and share opportunities for people. I can only speak for myself through my interactions with him, but more likely than not I wouldn't be doing two podcasts a week and interviewing UFC, Bellator and Strikeforce fighters if it weren't for him.

I'm down with all the posters on the PG. Everyone has different opinions and everyone expresses them differently. I certainly wish everyone could bury the hatchet. I'd love to see BlueSkiesBurn return.

I don't think Josh is a bad dude its just some personalities conflict. If it wasn't for him I don't think I'd be a regular poster nor as active.

Its his choice to return. I dont know why he left other than someone disagreeing with what he was saying. Personally dont care one way or the other about him, but Id rather people stay than go I guess.

Not everyone, but it really is no difference.

I support this thread

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

In this case, I think it is. Josh doesn't post on here anymore, so why even make a negative thread about him? Smasher posts in here time to time, and same with Viking.

I agree, and I don't remember Josh blatantly calling us Idiots and Morons. I know you (Shawn) and I both took exception to that. But I understand that by nature they would be the same as would our tiffs with eachother. I'm as guilty as anyone. Guess we pick and choose what we want to include

Too much arguing. He felt it would be best to take a break

I can't hate on Josh. He gave me my first opportunity to write and actually have people read it. He's a good guy, he just likes to argue a little too much.

I generally enjoy Josh on here and his podcasts. He can get opinionated and sometimes goes a little overboard in discussions/arguments, but we all do at times. After all he is involved in almost all of the popcorn eating gifs I'd like for him to return sooner than later

Viking has 24 posts, he doesnt really post at all for the amount of backlash he took. Its just that people are friendly or like Blueskies and they got upset with that thread, which is fine.
