If you respect this idiot's opinion...
Öplease never talk to me again.
I have never seen someone claim more of a market on the banal and trite than this clown. If you actually think heís saying something here more than the obvious or the easily available, all that tells me is you understand positively jack shit about the sport or business and the intersection between the two.
Everything he says is hackneyed, but I guess if you package it in terms of food metaphors overweight pro wrestling fans find the material accessible. The reality is itís all super low-hanging fruit. Nothing more. If thatís the level of insight you aspire to, youíre a sad person.
And frankly, because it lacks nuance itís also somewhat incorrect. TUF is about the cast? Well, sort of. Thatís obviously one componentÖamong many, many others. Primetime was dull because of the professionalism of the fighters? Well, sort of. Thatís one componentÖamong many, many others.
Go back and read his amazingly moronic stuff after Jones won the title. Whatís that, JR? Jones has to surround himself with the right people in order to be a success? And if he doesnít surround himself with the right people, he wonít be? What an intellectual Gordion Knot this man just untied! How would we cope were it not for the powers of distillation this man possesses!
If you want to read his stuff for amusement or to pass the time or to get a good laugh, go ahead. But if you think heís saying something that nearly ever other opinion leader in MMA isnít, well, you just donít read. Which is probably the reason J.R.ís intellectual baby food is right up your alley.
