    Lebron didn't get another ring, somebody must have gone off script..

    I'm not saying it never happens, but all of them for the last 20? What changed 20 years ago?

    I'll agree that the WWF is fake as fuck, but most 8 year olds know that (amazing how many adults actually take offense to that!)

    Yes. IMO NFL MBA F1 GP and anything else that it's revenue is based on viewers, exposure and drama is corrupt and set up as hell.
    Roughly 20 years ago what changed is the ability to reach more viewers. As years progressed drama sells more than athletism. Maybe that was the case before. Idk. But I believe it's way worse in the last 5-10 years.

    Ok, I understand where you're coming from. I don't agree, but I acknowledge some level of corruption is possible, likely in isolated instances, and proven to have happened in the past.

    Too much money too many powers involved. It's a good conversation for sure. Thank you for respecting the dialogue and my opinion. It's mutual

    Mayweather/McGregor

    The moment the proven information is leaked about the sporting event being staged that sport is dead. It will become a caricature like the wwe. Too much money involved to risk that. Your post above mine contradicts itself.

    Pretty much.

    Not sure how I'd feel about being labeled the "best defensive fighter ever".

    Re: Mayweather/McGregor

    I think Sav is overstating "staged", but if you honestly believe results arent influenced in a way, youre out of your mind. The NFL/NBA assign refs based on who they want to win (if the home team needs to win, assign a new ref that will err to the side of giving them calls, and vice versa), heck in racing, team orders can absolutely play a part, and that is blatant staging results. Its definitely not like the WWF where we know who will win after, but its not always just about the 2 teams on the field.

    Re: Mayweather/McGregor

    Macgregor has tremendous timing. If you watch his knock outs, its because he is very good at timing his punch. He does have knock out power. If he uses his head and hopes for a mistake or a counter attack, he has a chance. Mayweather doesn't make many mistakes and I know that but never count Macgregor out. He is a very skilled fighter.

    LMAO at these clips. The hype tour IS likely to be better than the fight. And free!

    Re: Mayweather/McGregor

    so just watch the reddit stream links?

    watched some of mayweather stuff...dang that guy is ridiculously fast...hooks come out of nowhere...and he finds the rhythm of his opponent and times his hits nearly perfectly.

    watched McGregor stuff - his "boxing footage" on youtube is amateur...his ufc fighting punches (left) are okay, but not sure how it holds up in boxing technique. He drops his hands a lot and boxing is big on stance/guarding yourself.

    cough,cough,acestream,cough,cough app been very very good to me for last 12-15 PPV events.

    Yeah the speed diff is astronomical, I know some think McNuggets unorthodox style will throw Mayweather off but I don't see it. The other aspect that drives me crazy is all the McNuggets fans act like EVERY left he throws is a K.O. He went 8 rounds with Diaz, landed plenty of punches, lost the 1st fight and barely ekked out a decision in the 2nd. and Diaz is a slow/plodding white dude with next to NO defense.

    Not a fan of either, so just hope it's entertaining, love to see one of them hit the canvas. Or McNuggets lose his mind and throw an elbow/kick

    Re: Mayweather/McGregor

    I think it goes the distance with Mayweather winning the decision UNLESS Conor gets bored and tries to push the pace, then I think Mayweather KOs him.

    I put 0% of a KO on this fight.

    the *cough*cough* suggestion in VLC is HD/no clipping smooth on android

    all the other links suck balls...1 second of video, 15 mins of buffering...tons of ads

If the fight is anything less than a calculated, dominating performance by Mayweather, then I think it is safe to say it was staged. Perhaps a slight chance that McGregor could like a lucky shot, but Mayweather has never lost a fight to the best boxers in the world. I haven't watched any boxing, but I would have to guess that at some point his boxing opponents (the best boxers in the world) have slipped a haymaker by and it didn't knock him down. I don't know why McGregor's punch would.
    Serious question... Floyd hits women... What about McGregor makes you dislike him more?

    The first one is a good solid stream, at least for me. I'm sure ill end up with either a cease and desist from the ISP or a virus.
