And really, nobody is going to put in their best effort when they know they're going to get bitched at no matter what. His team seems to have adopted the philosophy of "If you're going to **** up, **** up royally".
    Honestly though what the **** does Lesnar expect when you put 14 alpha males(well in their minds anyway) into a house for six weeks? It's nothing new to the show, it happens every season. Looking back at previous seasons the winning team is almost always coached by someone who keeps his team in line, pushes them hard but encourages comraderie and keeps it a tight knit group. I don't think there's any difference mentally between Lesnars team or Dos Santos', Junior is simply a better leader.

    So, you mean, we should tell him that it does work outside of cartoons?

    Well yeah, that's what I'm saying. Lesnar's bitching about their behavior only has so much weight because he isn't doing **** to mitigate it.

    Yeah I got that, my point was he seems shocked by the attitude when it happens every damn season.

    take the behavior equation, and add a retard-factor into it. Now you understand perfectly. Lesnar is a dumb jock. Living a stereotype, and destined for mid-life-fail.

That would piss me off, but Brock's rant was uncalled for, as was the stool throwing.

    So once again Brock's complete lack of skill as a coach and motivator come shining through. And more chicken ****. Does Lesnar own a chicken farm or something?
    Yeah, i was rooting for Ramsey/twinkletoes but taught Charlie would win because i taught he was the better fighter. But he stuck to his gameplan/strenght and then Charlie just gave up. He said **** it and played possum and Lesnar is indeed a crap coach (and even if he's a crap coach maybe the other coaches he brought with him would be good but they're not doing their job either)


    And my guess is that he's sponsored by chicken.

    I don't think Charlie really went into that fight with a heart set on winning. It seemed like he just oozed apathy in the fight. And then tapped before the choke was even set completely.

    If I were one of Lesnar's fighters I would done a chicken suit for next practice. Maybe that way he would actually be interested in training you.

    This right here. I'm not all that surprised that Lesnar isn't a good coach; he's too focused on himself to give a damn about teaching anyone. I am surprised by how little his real coaches are doing though. I'd have thought that Lesnar would have a serious team of trainers, but going by that training session they showed, they lack any direction whatsoever. Everyone was just half-assing doing their own thing in the cage because nobody was telling them what they should be doing.

    I almost want to think that Lesnar's training looked so bad due to editing, otherwise I just feel sorry for those guys on his team.

    edit: Oh also that guy definitely gave up in the fight, but they barely mentioned that his shoulder was injured. If he really did dislocate or separate it when he got taken down, it's a lot more understandable that he let his back get taken and tapped.

    one of the coaches for lesnar's team is erik paulson, and he is a great coach, so i'm not sure why the training is so bad for their team, even if brock is being a douchebag (and he is.)
