I've been a regular here for 4 or 5 years, i've not posted much, mostly because i'm to lazy to log in and comment...
I am on and off the site a number of times during the day and enjoy, for the most part, the writing styles of the various writers. The post about why the one fellow is leaving got me thinking, why do i enjoy this site so much? why the switch from MMAFighting and MMAnews.com?
I think it comes down to the entertainment and serious discussion that the comment sections always become. Sure i don't always agree with the moderators sternness or their viewpoints, but i suppose i could go start my own site if i really wanted (but never will...see the lazy comment above).
Another reason that i have enjoyed this site is the live discussion during fight events, I am no longer in a place that i can afford to order every event or even get out to the bar to watch. Even though my wife loves MMA almost as much as i do and has serious comments to make (and often wonders what the hell Rogan is yelling for) i enjoy the chance to banter with other knowledgeable people and share the ups and downs of the given event.
I am looking forward to joining the BECW as soon as i get picked up from the reserves and interacting more with the core group of BE members, the recent #BEfollowback as made my twitter a more enjoyable experience and the encouragement of a number of members got me to take the first step into joining a BJJ gym (Gracie Humaita in Winnipeg)
I'm not a great writer, I hope I didn't come across too sappy, but I think i'm not alone in my sentiment...
I enjoy it here and all of your opinions.
