    I made a boob joke?

    It isn't a lecture...see the smiley...I am just playing with him.

    I can afford cable, TV is just not a priority in my life so I refuse to pay for it. Other than watching Letterman when laying in bed, the only TV I regularly watch is the Simpsons and Family Guy on Sunday Night.

    Shamrock is very much like a dinosaur.

    Big body. Small brain.

    Instead Shammy seems to be concentrating on working their on their strength's and improving their conditioning.

    I think it is easier to improve someones striking and cardio in a short period than their submission and Jiu Jitsu skills.

    Because of the short schedule I think that Shamrock may have made a very clever decision in bringing in his S&C coach (assuming the guy is any good,) instead of a sub specialist.

    Hmmm, the S&C coach, yeah, but the nutritionist... hmmm, me dunno about that...

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Shamrock looks like a lousy coach, but a smart strategist and judge of fighters, so far. Tito, on the other hand, looked like a great coach, the kind I'd want to work with, but he made some weird decisions as far as picking fighters. I've seen Mike Stine fight; he's not really that good. Which is not surprising, considering he's a Tiger Schulman fighter. The only thing he's good is good hands and aggressiveness. Weird to see Tito talking him up.

    Shamrock also picked that Kristian Rothaermel guy who both coaches were complaining about on their trial days. And he picked him like, 3rd or something. He does have a 40-3 professional MMA record and a black-belt in BJJ, but both perceived him as being weak. Maybe Shamrock was looking for experience over work ethic?

    I like how Shamrock called himself a leg lock guy, even though he hasn't leg locked in anybody in ten years. It's pretty easy to heel hook guys who have no idea what they're doing.

    I had the opposite problem; I got home from work late and only saw the last 10 minutes or so, came in right at the weigh in. So I missed all the picks and coach decisions and such. But I did see the fight. Nice ground and pound by Shamrock's guy.

    All these guys have at least decent ground (maybe not good but they've got the concept just not the mat time probably). Under these conditions I'm guessing that daily small classes with freaking dean lister and tito ortiz will make a big difference.
