She's an idiot, he should have started with that because her comments where moronic.

Wow. I watched some sandy hook conspiracy theory this morning and was real confused.. But If i was champion i would tweet it.. I'd have the money to experience it myself.

I think I've fallen for every conspiracy theory there is...

It seems everything Rousey does these days is news... I mean what the fuck. I got into mma to get away from celebrity idolisation and all I seem to hear is Ronda said this, Ronda apologises for that.

I mean has Ronda signed up for a reality show and I didn't read the headline? It seems like everything she does or says has to be turned into an article. What's next? Ronda not afraid to grapple with a lesbian then another article after saying "Manager apologises for Rousey singling out lesbians."

Yes it sad for any real victims involved, but I mean she's a UFC Champion now, if your really that confused just fly out there and talk to the families of victims yourself. It'd make better headlines; give the UFC better rep and who knows what's going on inside your brain and if your meeting people just because you think something fishies going on, you get to see it all and make an opinion first hand.

Somedays you just gotta keep your thoughts to yourself and if your real interested in something. Research it on your own in your free time
Not everything you think needs to be seen by all.

I'd just to keep it to myself. Those families just lived through a tragedy no one should have to endure and then spend the holidays waking up to the realisation that losing their children wasn't just a nightmare like they hoped. Now to top it off we have heartless tin foil hat bastards harrassing them over their dead children. It's sick.

Wrong? Yes.

Stupid for people to get so butthurt over it? Yes.

Carry on.

I think the problem here is celebrity and politics. The two just don't mix well,but I always try to remember that just because I admire someone in a certain aspect of their life, doesn't mean i'll feel the same about every thing they do.

Personally, I feel terrible about the whole episode of events,but I would be lying if I also omitted the fact alot of weirdness unfolded as well. Perhaps its just plain old confusion and the media to blame. Perhaps their's more.
I hate even seeing this type of stuff on this website just because I feel like MMAPlayground is the one place I can normally get away from the bs politics.

In the end,maybe the fact that so many political stories in the past few years bleed into the lives of MMA sport stars show the severity of the situation at hand?
I feel that a lot of Americans now have the attitude that you can't trust the media,and you can't trust the government. But who can blame them?

I really wish athletes could just do their sports and leave politics etc out of their diatribe. Maybe that's why Volkmann is so annoying.

Yes, I wish nobody expressed their opinions because of their job

It was her personal twitter, not a post fight interview. Blame the media for turning it into a big deal.

Sounds like you're not too familiar with the whole real world thing...
