I got this from a member who has issues with the way the Secondary League is ran. I'll post the conversation in it's entirety for you to read. If you agree, click the appropriate option above. If you disagree and are happy with the way things are, select the other option.


Hey Fleek, how are ya?

I have been wanting to ask you for the longest time, but keep forgetting to actually do it.

Is it possible to put less events on these secondary cards?
Like if a Bellator is on, can you not just put the whole card rather then 4 or 5 events added to it?

Or for this past event, why King of the cage? Nobody can even watch them in North America, or even get info on them, so why put them on the card?

My friends have been asking me, and Ive also been wondering, so I figured id write ya. Do not take this the wrong way, its only a question, and I think your doing a great job as it is. I just think, it would be much more fun, being able to watch these events, or at least read a play by play, rather then not being able to watch or read them..

Hope you have a great weekend.

Yes, it's possible but it's not likely. L2 events usually consist of events with known fighters. If I put every Bellator fight on an event, 2/3 of the fights will consist of unknown guys with little or no tape to watch when researching. That's no different than not being able to watch an event.

The combo cards will continue to be made up of known fighters and prospects.

Sorry man.





Known fighters?
So then why wasn't Jorge Santiago vs Jay Silva added to this past s2 card?
Its on the same card Bobby Lashley is on.

Sorry who is Vitali Krat OR Naoyuki Kotani? Ben Lagman?

Can you do less events at least? Trust me im not the only one who wants this.

But I see you won last event, so do what you want I guess.




Okay, you are being a dick, which is not surprising since I know exactly who you are.

Want a poll? Fine, let's put up a poll. I'll do it right now.



So I'm putting up a poll. If you guys want all fights from Bellator or all fights from King of the Cage rather than a combo card, let us know.

I enjoy it the way it is and so do a lot of people. The majority of the people in my camp like it, they like the known fighters and if it takes a combo card to do that then so be it. As for watching them, for the most part there is always a site streaming said events, and is usually posted or pmed to members.

I'm cool with both but it tends to take much longer to get results of how we did when the combo cards are spaced out over two or three days. Regardless of what you choose I'm still going to make my picks for whatever is available.

Not the biggest fan of combo cards, but I prefer them to picking fights with guys I've never heard of, and who I can't even research.

The way it is now is fine by me.

And he seemed like he was insinuating that you design the cards to favor yourself. What a dick, the secondary league is better than ever now. I remember when there was one car per month and updates were slow. Now we have a card every week and the updates come fast.

Yep. I took offense to that. The last card was the first time I'd ever finished in 1st place in picks *or* wagers in the 7 years I've been here. The comment really pissed me off.

He did apologize but only after I called him on it.

In general, I like things the way they are in Secondary League.


Why would anyone complain about the Naoyuki Kotani vs Vitali Krat fight?

I say keep it the way it is. I hate picking fighters I've never heard of. Yes, a lot of times there still are a few fighters on combined L2 cards I've never heard of, but that's better than half a card from an organization.

If we switched to picking full fight cards from L2 events, I probably would cherry pick, or not even play.

i have had the same problem as the E-mailer in the past and thats why i dont do L2 events anymore. i dont a chance to watch the fights or the fighters on the small cards and because the cards get stacked together i end up just saying fuck it to the whole card.

its no big deal if it stays the same though because i rarely get to watch many of the L2 events these days except for bellator.

I love secondary league
I just think L2 would be better if we could have more fights on L2 that are watchable (online or on tv) as to NOT being able to watch any.
I also think having 5 to 6 events on one card is a little much.
