    Throwdown Fist Qualification

    I'm gald the Throwdown Fists are coming back. And I think the recently posted information on Throwdowns lays them out quite nicely.

    For the sake of clarity, I do have a couple of questions about the rules, especially about the equipment portion:

    Equipment:
    Each person will wear at most:

    *Near-Full face headgear
    *Shin guards
    *forearm/elbow guards
    *NHB style gloves (with no crossbar in palm)
    *Mouthpiece
    I'm just a little confused at the "Each person will wear at most".

    If you wear knee pads, a headgear with a face cage, or boxing gloves, it doesn't count? What about a cup?

    And if we are going to phyiscal tapout or verbal tapout, we might want to consider requiring someone to act as a referee.

    I also don't have a problem with changing the "rules" to guidelines and have someone/group designated to award fists on a case by case basis.

    Hmm, good question. Will revise shortly. The intent is to avoid having people show up in Redman suits or full plate armor, and expecting to get a fist award.

    kneepads are common in MMA competitions, so they should be on the list at least

    I really think the way to go is case by case evaluation, either by the mods, BBC, or the Throwdown rep.

    I just think there's too many variables to define in words what is "fist worthy" or not. It's like art or beauty, you know it when you see it.

    The problem is that the drama whores will scream bloody murder if it's not set in stone why they can't have a fist.

    Which is a problem in and of itself. It's pretty obvious at this point that Throwdowns are good fun and are a great learning experience, but you still have the problem of people showing up to Throwdowns, sucking ass, then claiming some kind of authority (aka drama whores). The fist is cool (wouldn't mind to EARN one myself, but it's looking like I might not get the chance in the near future), but maybe there should be a disclaimer somewhere that having a Fist doesn't make you a good fighter. I realize this should be obvious . . .

    Of course, if you guys want to just go on a case-by-case basis so you don't have to worry about that bullshit, I'm down with that. I don't always agree with how you run the site, but I am pretty sure the staff knows what Throwing Down looks like.

    Yeah. Ultimately everything is subject to staff approval anyway.
