I know we can get demanding, rude and over zealous sometimes but, thanks for putting up with our shit. The best thing about Bloody Elbow is how interactive the staff is with the fans, I cant really think of another site where writers take the time to debate with and teach the people who read their articles. The downside of that is sometimes we all start to think we're part of the staff, we forget that we're just fans and some of us just dont really know how much work you guys put into the upkeep of this site. We forget that for every 300 comment-worthy article, someone not only took time to research and write it, but took more time to moderate each and every comment that we put up. Honestly, Im just some dude with a blog that like 15 people read. There are days when I have no clue what to write, Im kind of amazed that the staff here has managed to keep things this interesting for so long.
I spent a year just reading this site everyday, too scared to comment on any articles or put up any fanposts. I let the Sherdog forum and the UG jade my view of MMA experts, I started to think they where all pompous and arrogant jerk offs. But the staff here at BE has been unbelievably inviting and informative. Some of the staff here even encourages me to write on my blog, if I dont put anything up in more than a few days I have Kid Nate telling me to "get back on the horse". As a fan of MMA and Bloody Elbow I cannot describe to you how awesome it is for someone you look up to to encourage you to do something you love. So again, thanks BE staff for putting up with our shit and thanks for doing what you guys do. Keep up the good work!
