So what's up with these "locker bonuses" again? Are they trying to avoid taxes?

which part of what i said is nonsense? how will my understanding basic economic principles make zuffa look even handed and fair towards their employees?where have you heard that OWS want the government to distribute $1m per person? i haven't found this demand anywhere in their literature... based on your post i would guess that either you earn $250,000+ or you read/watch a lot of corporate media.

Dam bro are you for real? fucking crying about vote ups? SMH. So you think this site is giving me vote ups because according to you I work for Zuffa? Then why dont I have 1000 or 1500? You can have them, seriously, please take my vote ups and give them to Haulport. I'm serious, take my vote ups, it obviously makes him feel bad that people on here dont think highly of him. I cant speak for everyone but you know why that probably is? Its not that you are stupid or you dont know what you're talking about, you do, its your a hater. Everything you post is negative. You cant wrap your brain around how I have more vote ups than you, like that shit even matters. So you come up with a theory that the mods must be giving me votes ups because according to you I work for Zuffa. So they give me vote ups to make people think my opinions matter more?Come on man. Thats why you aint got more vote ups.The reality is the UFC is the top org, I know that bothers you but its the truth. UFC is the top org and most fans like the UFC and want to see it do well, not fail like you.So day after day, post after post you bash them people are gonna vote you down for that. Even if negative things you say about the UFC are true people are still gonna either vote you down for saying it or vote you down because they think you're a hater.

Lol, you really do view things like a child. Maybe you don't work for Zuffa and your opinions are just so stunted it comes off like that. Lol, probably not... I CLEARLY mentioned vote ups because it is suspicious that you have more than posters who are extremely well thought of and yet you are just an ordinary poster who most wouldn't be able to identify. So why so many? The implication is that you have a high vote up count because you are a Zuffa shill who the mods do that for so that other posters will take all your criticism and hatred of other orgs more seriously. You saying that my "concern" is somehow childish when what I was implying was AS CLEAR AS DAY is even more suspicious and consistent with your usual hijinks...

Why support the promoter over the fighters? If you want top level athletes who can afford to pay sparring partners and train full time then you need to pay them properly. At the moment you have a lot of guys basically doing it because they enjoy it. Paying the fighters less is not good for the sport.
