[QUOTE=mathed;13459722]I thought the stoppage was crap. Dawson was back on his feet, he should have been given a chance to continue.[/QUOTE] He could barely move. He was listing sidewards and backwards, he was in no shape to continue. He could…

Is Dwyer on suicide watch right now? I bet he still finds a way to keep Dawson on his top ten p4p list. :lol1:
