Comment on The (sex!) marketing of (catfights!) women’s MMA by Beau Dure http://www.sportsmyriad.com/2014/12/the-sex-marketing-of-catfights-womens-mma/comment-page-1/#comment-165268 Fri, 12 Dec 2014 13:20:02 +0000 http://www.sportsmyriad.com/?p=5461#comment-165268 I wouldn’t say I’m OK with it. I think they did cross the line from “typical TUF fare” to “Mean Girls stereotypes” at time.

But who was to blame for that? It’s actually the fighters. Producers didn’t make Angela Magana act the way she did. Some seasons of TUF have less of that drama, some have more. Some just have funny household antics. Depends on what happens in the house.

Read the whole thing to come out with “meh, they all do it”. Doesn’t make it right that it’s the only way women are portrayed. If that’s all they can find to fill an episode, shorten the episode. Seriously.

Comment on The Ultimate Fighter 20, Episode 11: No quarter by Diane http://www.sportsmyriad.com/2014/12/the-ultimate-fighter-20-episode-11-no-quarter/comment-page-1/#comment-165192 Thu, 04 Dec 2014 20:15:14 +0000 http://www.sportsmyriad.com/?p=5456#comment-165192 Agree with you about Namajunas, but think she can pull it off here. Only thing stopping her might be her own mind. Saying that, she’s getting mentally tougher each fight.

Comment on The final word on the Soccer Culture Wars, more or less by Dan Loney http://www.sportsmyriad.com/2014/11/the-final-word-on-the-soccer-culture-wars-more-or-less/comment-page-1/#comment-165085 Mon, 24 Nov 2014 14:53:48 +0000 http://www.sportsmyriad.com/?p=5444#comment-165085 I think instituting pro/rel would be a sign of MLS and club weakness, not strength. It would be a last-ditch gimmick to put in artificial interest. And then pro/rel’s, pardon the term, myriad flaws would become apparent, and MLS would either fold on the spot or pound the undo button.

And, what the hell, I’ll punish your blog’s readers instead of mine for a change. Obviously I’m not a neutral source, but that was objectively not a good article. The premise seemed to be “Wouldn’t it be funny to take Ted Westervelt to an MLS game, and see what happens.” The answer was “Nothing.” Plan B was to make Westervelt seem likeable, but the guy brought up pro/rel in literally every conversation.

It wasn’t a miscarriage. It was an abortion. An abortion, Beau. Something unholy and evil.

By the way, can you imagine in a thousand years sending a child to be coached by Gary Kleiban? Jesus.

Comment on The Ultimate Fighter 20, Episode 9: Mean girls by Beau Dure http://www.sportsmyriad.com/2014/11/the-ultimate-fighter-20-episode-9-recap/comment-page-1/#comment-165040 Thu, 20 Nov 2014 20:06:53 +0000 http://www.sportsmyriad.com/?p=5437#comment-165040 I still think the men on TUF have been more juvenile than the women. But this episode was a little off.

I don’t mind letting Torres back in, and I can’t believe Esparza complains about it so much. Has she never, ever seen the show? Someone comes back into the competition almost every season.

Namajunas was underrated coming into this. Seventh seed? No way. I cannot wait to see her fight Calderwood. I love both fighters, and I think it should be awesome.
