No, not really. "People" buy any piece of shit product with a marketing campaign. "People" go to see autotuned puppets "perform" "their" "music" "live". "People" vote against their own interests at the drop of a hat. "People" are, in the main, idiots. I don't have any expectations about "people".

Did I mention all that stuff about "people" yet? Kessler was the favourite because that's what the media led people to believe, and they dutifully did.

Yes, it is easy. I'm not even saying he's not a good boxer, just that he is more limited than people made out. I think he was suckered into taking part in this whole Super 6 farce anyway, and badly served by his management, so I don't have specific criticisms about Kessler.

I'm not "butthurt" because Ward won - I would have been disappointed if he hadn't, given the advantages he had going in. I just thought the whole Super 6 thing was a stage-managed TV show from the start. I had/have no fan loyalty to any individual boxer who took part. I'm also not "trying to pass off" anything, I'm just calling it how I saw it at the time.

Ward still had to go out and do the job, sure. Congratulations to him for that. But the "help of the guys that set the stage for the S6" ...that probably didn't hurt his chances any.

Unfortunately, it isn't simpler, I don't enjoy or believe those things, and don't buy into Showtime's boxing version of the Fox News reality bubble. Sorry.
