We got a text telling us that he would pay up last night if we apologized and Rick took down his Twitter post. Phone Post


Nooooooooooooooooo

 

Well folks, extinguish your torches and put away the pitchforks. Keep em clean for next time

 


We ain't apologizin'.


Why not?  Just apologize, let Hawn get paid, then do an article on the whole mess.  To me, the most important thing is that Hawn get the money he's owed. 


Get outta here with this reason nonsense! We came here for a good lynchin and that's what we gonna get!

This Gingrich guy looks swell.

Shirtless in a hat with Beats by Dre slung over him for what the ladies call a "hawtness" increase.

I also see he has a business mindset that CANNOT BE TAUGHT.

Fuck.

I was going to ask him to be a youth mentor in the community.

Guess that won't be happening. Phone Post

"Listen <insert dirt bag sponsors name>, Rick and I would like to formally apologize for doing everything we agreed to do. We're also terribly sorry that you decided to commit Fraud when tendering payment in the form of a soon to be cancelled check. Thanks for the support, please forgive us, and please send us another check, and please don't cancel this one, like the last, slimeball."

The only legitimate reason a sponsor can give for backing out of payment is if the terms of the contract were for a televised fight and the fight did not get televised. In that case, the sponsor is essentially out of potentially millions of eye balls

Obviously that was not the case here. Phone Post

Apologizing is an admission of guilt and we didn't do anything wrong. His terms are that we take the Tweet down and never reveal who the deadbeat sponsor is. Read above. There is a lawsuit pending. Rick will get paid, regardless of this idiot including terms that protect him from being outed in paying what is owed.

If this is HTFU they have a lot of nerve complaining.

If Rick had won, you still can't read their fucking logo. Folks have to do work to figure out what they fuck he was wearing.

Don't pay the designer of the shitty logo, and give Hawn his money.

john_d1974 - lose or put on a poor show and lose your sponsor - whats wrong with that?

the dude wants to promote his business and either of the aforementioned ain't gonna do his business any good is it?

you had your chance, you blew it, deal with it!

thats not how business and contracts are sponsor agreements work; how old are you?

you make an agreement, thats that. Its a legally binding contract and if you dont like the outcome, fuck you, pay me, and if you dont want to pay me then fuck you, we go to court, then you pay me and you pay my attorneys and your attorneys and its a triple fuck you.

i hope the cheap arrogant douche sticks to his guns, goes to court, loses, bankrupts his shit company and never signs another athletic performance agreement in his life

or you know, pays Rick Hawn. Either way really

Don't apologize to that dickhead, tell him you want double if he wants an apology and the tweet taken down, otherwise run a smear campaign on his business if he doesn't pay what he owes. Phone Post

This guy is NOT a smart businessman and he's even a worse human being. You think being a scumbag piece of shit is going to make people want to go out and support your product? LOL!! What a dumb fuck!!! Dude will end up paying court fees, etc AND still have to pay Hawn..

In all likelihood the bad press he will get when exposed will by far outweigh the actual lawsuit. Most small businesses can't take the bad PR. His company will get blacklisted by the MMA community (presumably a large percentage of his business if he is sponsoring a fighter).

And to john_d1974, unless the contract is structured that way (which undoubtedly it is not) the sponsor has no legal standing to not pay. This is not a judgement call.

IDOHARM -  We haven't even gotten into a full blown discussion as to what HTFU means yet. I'll throw some ideas out there.

HTFU: Hawn Tapped, Fucked Up
HTFU: Hitler Tapped For Us
HTFU: Have Tourette's, Failed University
HTFU: Hankering To Fuck Unicorns

There are so many possibilities. I'm personally hoping its the Unicorns. Phone Post

You forgot this one:

HTFU- He'll Totally Fraud U (allegedly, still no confirmation)

Was it HTFU? Maybe I missed it but I read the whole thread and didn't see if it was for sure or not.

I think that it's wrong for them to cancel the cheque but to come to the UG and drop the info but not the sponsor is wrong too.

TTTeh for the name of the sponsor. If you're going to complain here you should be prepared to use names.

IDOHARM - How fucked up would that be if every sponsor could just back out when a fighter lost. That's not the way this shit works. Condom Depot would never do that. Phone Post
I would think that Condom Depot of all sponsors, would keep you from making a deposit. Phone Post

Yes, Condom Depot would never pull out.

Lol good one Phone Post

When the other companies were suggested, they were defended.

We are 10 pages deep now with people blasting HTFU and Mike hasn't defended them once. HTFU it is.





Also, HTFU stands for Happy Twinks Fucking Ugandans. Which loosely translates to I'm a gay man fucking a black guy.
