Apologies for making a thread that is not about Conor, Khabib, dollies or brawls, but the sad departure of blessed Vert made me muse about the plethora of posters that have departed these hallowed shores over the past 12-18 months. Of course plebs come and go, but we have lost several 20k+ posters. If you could bring one of the following back, who would it be and why? I have included a short resume to help remind you of them. Please vote using the poll....lol, this took much longer than planned....
Trademarks: Jake Shields fan. World-weary cynicism. Held doggedly to fights from ancient history defining a fighter (Lawler losing to Shields, Woodley losing to Marquadt etc.). Subtle wit that was lost on many but appreciated by a handful of fans who labelled him as Hilarious. A semi-professional MTB-er with very good contributions to the fitness thread
Allies: Surprisingly, 12er due to political and humour considerations
Enemies: All Republicans and people who thought Jake Shields was a can.
Reason to bring him back: CB and all the Europeans need another lefty friend. Was also very funny, and one of the more subtle trolls
Reasons not to bring him back: He retired. Let's leave him in peace
Trademarks: Most of the best fora lingo. Double-diggling people in blueberry flavoured buttermilk was a conglomeration of all his best work. Repped Ferguson with a passion unmatched, and could be merciless at times. Frequent contributor to the gaming thread. Inventor of brutal losing usernames, some of which never saw the light of day due to cancelled fights.
Allies: Roids, Patster (at times), Carnages
Enemies: Only Finish_Him
Reason to bring him back: Fora lingo has grown stale. Nobody is repping El Cucuy other than occasional half-hearted attempts from Jason_H
Reasons not to bring him back: Another self-imposed retiree, with nothing left to prove.
Trademarks: Known as a Conor fan hated by other Conor fans, but actually bandwagoning was really his thing. Would be DC's number one fan right now, plus a huge fan of Khabib and a fan of Cejudo since day 1. Would make 12 threads within 1 hour all on the same topic. As clear a case of OCD as i've seen. Famously groomed his eyebrows and took his shirt off to fight an old man at traffic lights.
Allies: Few. FFS seemed to like the chaos.
Enemies: People who hated Conor, and people who loved Conor
Reason to bring him back: Not enough Conor threads....
Reasons not to bring him back: Few posters were more annoying.
Trademarks: UFC Montages that nobody watched. Missing virtually every joke that was made. Becoming very aggressive for no apparent reason, and getting thrown out of his own game several times. Had a very unhealthy obsession with Cash
Enemies: Anyone who had a different opinion to him on anything.
Reason to bring him back: I can't think of any
Reasons not to bring him back: Having every thread derailed with the same repetitive and pointless 'bad-****' arguments is not something we miss.
Enemies: Various. 12er in the early days (for taking "selfies"), Carnages (who trolled him into snitching to the FBI) and Polo who made him rage quit over an AV bet. His main ire is now focused on Sober via twitter to 0 followers
Reason to bring him back: Bong updates
Reasons not to bring him back: So so many....
Trademarks: Willingness to throw hands with strangers. Lots of fitness posts. Weird running battle with Mozzez
Allies: Me, Stomp, CB
Enemies: Mozzez, Cash, America, Carnages and anyone else black
Reason to bring him back: His diaries. Plus Mozzez is all mellow these days.
Reasons not to bring him back: I think he's better off without the fora. He's not made for the cut and thrust.
Trademarks: Hmm. Top 20 university. One of the leading authorities on crypto-currency and one of the more annoying Conor fans
Allies: Soccer fans. He was a good laugh during the World Cuo
Enemies: Quite a few. Roids being the ultimate one who caused his demise
Reason to bring him back: He was quite a varied, active poster.
Reasons not to bring him back: He's only just left. Plus returning would be welching.
