BertR - this forum is filled with so many self-loathing repressed gays it would turn into the castro district at the drop of an ecstasy tablet.

Keep telling yourself you're straight after every time you make fun of "them" for being gay while pretending you watch mma for the fighting and not that it's the most homoerotic of all sports outside of full on gay porn.

Just because you are turned on by watching guys fight it doesnt mean it has the effect on the rest of us.

MisterFixit - He's a comedian. Saying funny shit or attempting to say funny shit comes naturally.

Lighten up, Nancy. Phone Post
Being a comedian doesn't give you a license to say what ever you want whenever you want at the expense of whatever you want.

He over reacted about the ref. He took a shot at lance bass. Neither was funny or professional and unfortunately his ego got in the way of remedying the situation.

This is why I went from an every podcast listener to now and then when he has cool guests, like les stroud and the german scientist. Phone Post

I don't totally buy the "Fat Ref is unnaceptable" criticism. That ref wasn't immobile because of his obesity. In fact, heavy refs may be more effective at preventing KO'd fighters from receiving more damage (than a quicker, skinnier ref) because of their momentum to effectively tackle/check the attacker.

FatLoser - Joe Rogan is a terrible comedian bullish, loud, using terrible stereotypes this is just par for the course.

the UFC has a culture of puffed up big men types who are desperate to be domineering and controlling to the "weak". these comments were firstly nonsensical and secondly offensive. but people shouldn't be surprised.
Culinary Union sniper?

People who get offended on behalf of other people who may be offended are phags. Get over yourselves. Try speaking off the cuff, unscripted for hundreds of hours without saying something which may offend somebody. Can not be done. Let Lance and the fat ref deal with being offended (or not) in their own way. Phone Post

TheMentalisT - Rogan shouldn't have to explain shit. he wasn't on a familt network at a normal time. This event was on PPV with a 10pm start. fuck all that politically correct bullshit when it comes to grown men stuff.

also, fuck the faggots and lardasses for being a big waste of humanity. The fat people i can sympathize for, some of it is health related, but you faggots disgust me.

Look at the human anatomy, you have a drill, the women have a hole.

Shit is like this for a reason. wake the fuck up

Your anuses were meant to be exit holes only(unless your a slutty chic).

You're a fucking idiot.

People that are constantly offended by everything bother me. Were the comments in poor taste? Yes. He admitted that on his podcast. Let's all move on to more important things.

I just have one, serious question...

Has there ever been an instance in MMA where an "unfit" ref couldn't stop the action in time to prevent some kind of serious injury?

I'm a Joe Rogan fan, but I thought calling out the ref like that wasn't his finest moment

Being fat doesn't necessarily mean you're not capable of doing your job properly. Look at Tank Abbott and Roy Nelson for example.

One of the reasons I like Joe Rogan is he genuinely tries to better himself every day as a man. I also think he has a good moral character.

Whether or not I think the fat joke was crude, I definitely believe 100% Joe intention was NOT to hurt the ref's feelings or embarrass the ref on national television.

No one is perfect. Not Joe, not the ref, and not us on our couch as ufc fans.

Take things in broader context and give people the benefit of the doubt imo.

The comment about Lance Bass was hilarious, but the comment about the ref wasn't cool IMO.
