@motropolis -
Yep I saw that episode. Louis CK is the fuckin man. Didn't wanna bring it up because that's pretty fucking depressing and takes aaaaaaaalllll the fun out of the word faggot right away.

And I'm with Rogan - the word faggot is too fun to stop using altogether. (Faggy fine print: as long as it's not used to be mean to someone who's actually gay).

Of course, his rationale was retarded. But he's no rocket scientist. Doesn't even know the proper name for the Brazilian kick!

@Seoul Bro

I saw an episode of Louie where a dude was talking about how the original definition of the word faggot was a bundle of sticks and during the time period when they were burning witches on stakes, they also burned gays, but they considered them so lowly, that they didnt want to waste stakes on them and just burned them on piles of "faggots", which is how the term started. The guy telling the story was a total fag btw.

Not ready for fucking primetime? Fuck, I love it that Dana Fucking White and Joe Fucking Rogan can't stop fucking swearing.

That's my favorite thing about MMA.

Henceforth it shall be called MMFA.

Or MMFuckinA.

I would like to take this opportunity to invoke my inner Willem Defoe and say... "what a fag!"

@Viva Hate - maybe you should ask your mom to turn off the parental filters on your internet connection!

Oh, and speaking of "The Roid", something you might want to add to your rumor mill:

Jon Madsen has been juicing...hard. Matter of time before he's busted, IMO.

Heard it here first.

lol @ "the internet explodes"

No, not "the internet", just the usual spineless, politically-correct, liberal cocksucking commentators possessing pathological levels of out-group empathy and self-hatred.

MMA media sensibilities jumped the shark when "the internet exploded" over Frank Mir's "death threat". If it's not something that can fit into an Obama speech, don't say it at all, cagefighters! What a bunch of pussies.

So, off to watch some dada5000 fights. lol

I agree with Almost South. But put some effort into it. Bring back the old school flair.

@Rex and Viva

There is no Tuesday Rumor Funhouse because a bunch of people got all butt hurt and started chanting cries of "Real Journalism!" from a site that has seen it's main editor self-induce vomitting on himself from Ipecac.

Let's all adjust our monocles and top hats now and prepare for some high-brow, sophisticated jourmanilism
Almost South- November 24, 2010 at 9:43 am
Bring back Tuesday Rumor Funhouse!

@Fried Taco,
I think you are a liar, I tried to check out your site and nothing! What a disappoint, fat bitches talking about MMA had me all excited, WORD!

Joe Rogan FTW

Tomas Rios is a horrible writer, he used to do fight predictions on Sherdog, and he was almost always wrong. One UFC event he got EVERY fight prediction completely wrong.
DonPedro- November 24, 2010 at 9:32 am
First off, BallKick excellent point. I was also thinking South Park when I read this article. People can learn a lot from South Park (I'm being serious).

Secondly, from the article: "Here's another example of MMA not quite being ready for primetime. Can you imagine John Madden or Joe Buck going on a popular sport's message board, calling a Sports Illustrated reporter a "f**got" and then bragging about getting them fired?"

I don't think John Madden and Joe Buck even know what a message board is. I imagine they don't even have twitter accounts. Also, we're talking about Sherdog here, not Sports Illustrated. If it were a mainstream magazine writer, I think Joe Rogan would have more sense than that. To say this is a reason that mma isn't ready for primetime is a little harsh. At the same time, I think the appeal of having Joe Rogan as an announcer is 1) his knowledge of the sport 2) his incredible enthusiasm 3) his edginess. Joe Rogan says what's on his mind. That's just who he is and I think people respect him for that. That's what separates him from the usual sports announcers. Every once in a while during he'll just have you rolling on the floor laughing from a line he drops during a fight or interview. Remember the bucket of ice incident? Bottom line - Joe Rogan isn't a hindrance for mma going primetime.

As DNC pointed out, Joe Rogan ain't exactly family friendly. As Ballkick pointed out, the word "faggot" can refer to a wide spectrum of assholes as well as being a derogatory term for gay men.

In fact, before "faggot" referred to gay men, it meant a bundle of wood. A" fag" still means a cigarette in British slang. The fact that "faggot" is still widely used outside of its unfortunate LGBT context means that some explanation is due when it is used and someone gets offended.

Joe Rogan did this, and he made a conditional apology. Normally a conditional apology is not as acceptable as an unconditional one, but anyone who knows Joe Rogan knows that while he is a vulgar and up front comedian, he doesn't have a lot of mean bones in his body. You may not want to invite him round to dinner with gramma sitting next to him, but he is funny as Hell.

I don't know Tomas Rios, but it sure sounds like he's a little bitchy cunt who has less going on between his ears than Gus Johnson, and that's saying something. I'm with Team Rogan.

Quick, someone call Frank Shamrock!

I thought you homo's all met at freeway rest stops! LOL!
DazedNConfused- November 24, 2010 at 8:44 am
All people need to realize is Joe is a comic, he doesn't take many things seriously (other than drugs such as DMT, Weed, Mushrooms etc, His Isolation Chamber, Standup Comedy and the UFC). All people need to do if they wanted Joe Rogan in trouble was to search up some of his comedy. Even the last link I showed had him calling someone a Homo. Obviously the UFC doesn't care. He has a weed plant, with a buddha and a bunch of other stuff tattooed all down his arm. It's not like the guys ever been family friendly.
Kimbos Bread- November 24, 2010 at 8:41 am
Dear Joe Rogan,

Meet me Friday at 8 in Big Al's truck stop washroom 12 miles south off the NJ turnpike and I will show you what a question-mark kick is, and what faggot is.

That is all.
RwilsonR- November 24, 2010 at 8:40 am
Good for Rogan for not bending to the stupid PC crap, and not backing down from giving Rios the Carlos Mencia treatment.

Although, I imagine Captain Braces probably doesn't much care for Rogan's cyber-bullying.
Ballkick- November 24, 2010 at 8:39 am
Although I do not know Mr. Rios personally nor have I seen or read anything by this man. If Joe Rogan ( a man I considered intelligent and knowledgeable in most subjects ) says this man is a cock-sucker. I would tend to believe him.
For my definition and feeling on the "F" word please see South Park season 13 episode 12. Faggot has transcended the old school meaning and has become a catch phrase to describe any ass-hole douche-bag that deserves it.

Stan: All right, look, you're driving in your car, okay?, and you're waiting to make a left at a traffic signal. The light turns yellow, should be your turn to go, but the traffic coming at you just keeps coming. And even when the light turns red, a guy in a BMW runs the red light so you can't make your left turn. What goes through your mind?
Judge 3: "Fag."
Stan: Right. But you're not thinkin' "Oh, he's a homosexual," you're thinkin' "Oh, he's an inconsiderate douchebag like a Harley rider."
Judge 1: This, this is, making insanely good sense to me.

DazedNConfused- November 24, 2010 at 8:38 am
great commercial. And yeah I don't believe Rogan meant "fuck this guy because he chooses to be with men" when he said faggot. Lets remember that he tried to beak Rogan for calling a certain kick a question mark kick, and then it turns out before it was actually called a brazilian kick it actually was called a question mark kick because of the pattern it goes in the air. Joe Rogan knows what the fuck he's talking about, and he has every right to go off on this loser. Faggot, among other words do not mean what they used to.

Check out his funny video against a heckler who's wearing affliction stuff, too good:

"Couture, Fedor, must fight"

Elentius- November 24, 2010 at 8:31 am
Correct me if I am wrong, but the "writer" about the Rogan thing talks about Rogan and his responsibilities while then talking shit about the fans who follow via the Internet. Talk about the pot and the kettle. That dude is a faggot and a cock-sucker.
