    Discussing who you think would have beaten whom is not history it's fantasy.

    IMO Tokon is correct, you don't base an ATG argument on what you think the guy could have done, you base your argument on what he did.

    This one poster who keeps insisting that what he sees on film somehow denotes a 'fact' - is the guy who should relocate.
    I agree

    There's always been a good reason to separate that from serious history then.

      The reason serious discussions of hypothetical matchups have been done in the History section instead of the Fantasy Fight section, is that any attempt to do so in Fantasy Fights is very quickly derailed by a flood of nuthugging fan-bois from NSB. Even back in 2007 that was the case. Fantasy Fights has always been a bad joke on Boxing Scene. If you wanted a serious discussion, you had to bring it here. It's as simple as that. There's no reason to change the culture to please a trolling alt account on one hand, and someone who's been here for only two years on the other hand.

        So the failure to properly monitor Fantasy Fights is a reason to corrupt the history section with fantasy.

        Regardless of my tenure here or Tokon's dissatisfaction with the history forum's current misuse is not trumped by a prolonged (13 year) incorrect use of the section.

        Are you arguing that your opinion, because you were here first, holds some property right to the forum that disallows change?

        Anyway I really don't care who posts what on here; I do care when a poster is told to shut up because he rocks the status quo boat.

        I repeat, Tokon is correct, opinions are not facts and the word 'fact' on this forum is consistently misused.

          You know what? You're only here to whyte night melanin challenged fighters anyway. Your opinion about anything is literally worthless to me. So, instead if listening to you bltch and moan about something the History Section had ALWAYS done, I'm going to tell you to phuck off and flush the toilet on you Binned with the rest of the forum azzholes Bye Felicia 4.gif

            I made a poll on this some time ago, as I personally found that fantasy fights belonged in the fantasy fight section, but the poll showed that the users wanted the fantasy fights to stay here.

              How about you start to treat your fellow posters with some more respect instead of mudslings and name calling?

                  There's plenty of forum trolls in here that deserve 0 respect. You should know that, as long as you've been here. I have zero tolerance for that shlt.

                    I'd also point out I've already ignored the prlck. I use to go round and round with these creeps and get into extended flame wars. Now, if they piss me off, I'll rip them a new one in a post or two then put them on ignore.

                      Yeah, that's fair enough. It is nice to have some place with some level of maturity and common knowledge. NSB is the ****s and FF being NSB flooded would make that the ****s too.

                      I didn't realize there was actually already a FF section. Like a dumbass.
