These are getting just a little too goofy for me. Perhaps I'm just interested in meaningful MMA discussion (without the same old/stale jokes and bullying/abuse of the producer). I've been with Luke for as long as I can remember, but I've become a little disappointed with the new direction since he joined up with Brian and stopped focusingthe more technical discussions. I guess you can't please everyone. just my thoughts.
