    I can only see this happening in the case of something like a Mega at a gym owned by a Bully, where the Bully/Owner reports that a certain person is banned from entering their place of business for any reason. But for just the Mega... can't see it.

    One individual does not decide who can or can not attend; people decide FOR THEMSELVES if they want to attend a TD with the people who are known to be coming. If someone you can't be in a room with, like your ex-wife, posts that they're attending, then you skip it. It's that simple. there is no TD blacklist.

    If anything, I think you would WANT to attend a TD with someone you don't like. Think of cramming Omega into the same room as Bruce Downey, IIF and whiny Canadian teenage girls, Qing Dynasty and the Shaolin Temple, etc. Makes for a hell of a video montage.

    I don't want you guys to fall into the trap of thinking that you can't have a Mega under those conditions. If Bobby stopped organizing the Boston Mega, one of us would have picked it up and made sure it happened. I mean, I love Bobby, but I could couldn't care less if he wanted to bail because (hehehe) Rudy was coming. Under those conditions, he would be free to skip it on his own, not torpedo the Mega. As I said, someone else would just step in and organize it.

    BTW Thanks, Bobby, for all the TDs you've put together. We appreciate it.

    Yep.
    JFS wasn't banned from the Mega people, acting like adults, said they weren't attending because of his shenanigans. IIRC Omega, Gezere, JKDChick and others backed out and it was cancelled. I'm almost certain JKDCHICK said she felt uncomfortable with JFS' misogyny and didn't want to ruin the MEGA.

    First Matt, you are reading way too much in it, so relax and read the below explanation.

    1) I did not elect myself or was elected to a "TD-Czar".

    2) Yet I did had the power in all the events to decide who could come (which I never used in the last 4 EuroMega's) and do you want to know why:
    because to rent that facility I have to sign a waiver that made me the acting supervisor and it was my duty to uphold the conditions stated by the facility holder.
    Not complying to said conditions would make me responsable insurance wise in case of accidents.
    Without the approval of the Belgian Kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA organisation I can't obtain an additional insurance and the BKM2O will not approve of a Bullshido TD.
    So besides picking up the bill, I also put myself every year in a risk position.

    3) There are no "professional Martial Arts clubs" in Leuven (hell, there isn't one in the whole of Belgium), which means that all the training facilities are leased at an affordable rate from the city.

    Now how many facilities do you think that there are available in a city of 97000 persons, when I have to compete with
    - The Judo club of the Hachidan and Technical Director of the BJF
    - A 2nd Judo club
    - 3 different Muay Thai clubs
    - a BJJ club
    - 3 Aikido clubs
    - 2 FMA/JKD clubs
    - A boxing gym
    - several Karate clubs
    - A Sanda gym
    - Several Kung-Fu clubs
    - 2 Taekwondo/Hapkido clubs
    -...

    Let just say that beggars can't be choosers!

    4) For me a Gong Sau is a grudge match and I don't want one at events that I organise. The last years the focus has turned here on Bullshido from Throwdowns to Gong Sau and I don't feel that this is an improvement and for some wierd reason most of the EuroBullies (that I have met) are feeling the same way.

    So you set reasonable rules and expect people to follow them. Man, you know I like you but you're wrong here. You do not have the power to ban someone from a Bullshido TD. You can have the power to ban anyone you want from anything you organize in your own name, but not in everyone else's name. Bullshido is all of us.

    Wouldn't it be better to have this thing at one of those MA clubs? They're used to people getting punched.
