    Several people are confusing depth with complexity. They are not the same thing.

    Simple isn't an insult at all. It is simple. That's the beauty of boxing. The mindset of more/ complexity is a fallacy.

    Legos are simple, but you sure can build a lot of awesome things out of them.
    Just saying.

    I think if you took all the variations of techniques and tried to put em in a syllabus and force all body types to learn every technique, whilst brainwashing students with the
    right morals and code of conduct, then it would be complicated enough to be considered a
    TMA.

    Boxing is complex. Period. In its on context of course. Muhammad Ali is a perfect example in his time. He revolutionized the sport. Who can argue? Then again there was Joe Louis.

Of course, that was three years before UFC1, so... nah, that was pretty fucking stupid then, too.

    That's because you didn't spend enough time larping. I remember believing some of that bullshit myself.

    Don't even get me started on the trolls they had over there. I was one of them.

    No, I already killed that site single handed years ago. After battling those nimrods post-for-post for about a year after I joined the site back around 2006, I figured out that the forums had no spam filters so I justed kept posting big text blocks of the word PENIS over and over again. It pretty much shut conversation down and forced the site's owner the freeze posting for a while, which drove pretty much all of the regulars away.

    The site was never extraordinarily active and I think I had driven away a lot of the idiots already. I didn't have much skill in constructing arguments back then, but just the fact that there was someone around with a dissenting opinion drove a lot of posters mad with frothing, impotent rage. If the mods didn't delete most of my old posts and their responses I would've been able to show you guys even more insane babble from the Bruce vs. Jackie community. The site still gets one or two odd posts every year, but it's not worth raping.

    Ahh... Internet war stories. The memories still hold strong.
