One of the gems of the old playground

honestly i think Sanchez is going to be the greatest welterweight that ufc has ever produced, even more so than Hughes

I love looking through the old boards.

UFC 67 was our first event, PRIDE 33 was the second, both in February 2007.

Dustin Hazelett UD over Diego Saraiva was the first bout on picks to happen to open UFC 67. The winner in wagers had to make 19 separate one on one bets with other members to finish first on the event in $$$ at a whopping $1,285, lol.

I think my favorite pick I've made on here was Diaz 2SUB over Gomi at PRIDE 33 so I basically peaked 8 years ago.

This site use toe be so active. Heck in 2008, about a year after the screenshot, this place was full of people. Pages of new posts each day. Up to three pages of news each day. Rankings were on point, the videos were endless...


...what happened? DCRage. One awful mod literally destroyed the site. In 2010 the place was still kicking but its growth was severely stunted. By 2012 it was dead.

The place grew so much in just one year...if not for DCRage the owners of this site could millionaires by now.

I was a great poster, posted everyday. Very helpful. I got banned one day for wishing Justin_Eilers a nice RIP message. The man was murdered on X-Mas that year.

DCRage thought the way I said my respects were in poor taste, since I tried to brighten the mood by throwing a few jokes in here and there (not about Eilers murder). It was a nice, good hearted good bye message to a fighter I enjoyed and respected.

Fuck that guy. You ever wtach the episode of Dinosuars (the sitcom with the annoying baby)
Robbie tells everyone: "If You Eat All The Grapes, Then There Wont Be Anymore Grapes?"
But everyone responds back: "There Will Always Be More Grapes."
But then they eat all the grapes so there are no more grapes?

Well, you can ban all the users under the assumption that there will always be more users...but guess what, eventually there wont be...and that is what happened.

One fucking man with a chip ion his shoulder destroyed the Playground!

DcRage is not the only one, or thing to blame, plenty of other things

Shawn, I commend you for pushing through all these years. It truly is amazing how absolutely quickly this place grew. In 2008 this was the place to be...thats only two years after its creation. To see it decline the way it did after such a quick route to sucess must be really disheartening. Hang in there, one day this place will take off again!

I doubt it, the steady decline season after season shows it won't. Too many events, lost interest in the sport, as for the site itself the owners don't give a fuck about the place

I scanned a few of the old posts, found this gem of a comment that certifies the site as being from 2007: "Sweet dexter avatar by the way."
