And I'd say I was more hopeful than nervous.


Lemme guess, because Hopkins is one of your favorite fighters?


Sad day when a boxing fan is HOPEFUL for a robbery, when robberies are what kill the sport for most fans.

I was being sarcastic.I wouldn't have approved of a robbery at all.
I was hopeful I would get a bite though,so thanks.

Good to know that you can claim sarcasm in hindsight and still feel like you made a point, eh?

Not at all.
Was I supposed to say at the bottom of my first post that I was being sarcastic?
I wasn't surprised at the first card,did want Hopkins to win but not because of a robbery.
You bit.Live with it,you won't be the first and you won't be the last.

That's exactly why at least one card being bent should not surprise anyone.
It'll probably get worse.Rios' is up there with anything.

Damn, all these people afraid of a robbery when the fight wasnt even close only proves the sad state that judging has been in recently. I know there has always been robberies but is it just me or does it feel like there has been alot more recently? Seems like every other week theres a bullshit decision.
