Default Top 5 ESB Hackneyed Topics

If you could ban 5 topics from ESB on the basis that they have been so beaten to death, what would they be? Here's mine (and there is a good chance you will find at least one on page one of the general forum as we speak).

1. Anything about RJJ's chin.
2. RJJ v. DM. Was RJJ ducking?
3. Compare Prime Mike Tyson vs. Historic Person "x" (usually Wlad).
4. When will JC face a legitimate opponent?
5. Why Floyd Mayweather is avoiding person "y."

While there may be some valid points to be made or not (depending on your POV), all of the above have been so beaten to death that there is no mileage left in the above. For the love of God, please stop.

I left this out by mistake. Actually, this should be right up near the top.

Anything about Wlad being an amazing fighter, who some people feel would beat most ATGs because of his size really pisses me off.

Yeah no more Taylor hate threads. I am by far a fan. But the pure ignorant hate makes me play the role. One more you forgot. Any thread evaluating the fight between Calzaghe and Kessler. That has been beaten and battered to death by Danes and Brits alike. They all have answers of how the fight will go. AND FOR GOD SAKES NO MORE THREADS ABOUT FIGHTERS CHINS..BEARDS..WHISKERS..CHOPS..CHINA CHINS.GLASS JAWS..OR ETC. ETC. OR WHO HAS THE BEST CHIN. I MEAN UNLESS YOU CAN GO BACK AND SLAM A SLEDGE HAMMER INTO ALL THESE GUYS FACES AND SEE WHO IS THE LAST MAN STANDING IT IS GOING TO BE A NEVER ENDING ARGUMENT.

A lot of topics have been beaten to death but this is a boxing thread and I feel anything goes. If you dont like the thread simply dont enter it. Simple as that.

Any thread accusing a fighter of ducking another. There is so much political bullshit nowadays going on behind the scene, who really knows why fights don't materialize. Calling boxers, risking life and limb, cowards from your keyboard seems a little shallow to me as well

I agree, but also one of the most played out topics always something pertaining to Zab Judah. Get over it, hes not gonna ever be that fighter that you thought he would be.

Zab hope will live forever, like it or not. We will always give Zab a second chance or a third, fourth, fifth chance at redemption.

Clearly, i dont like it. Great fighters are held to a standard and has been below for a while now. People can like him all they want, but we all know he aint all that, cause we know what he gonna give us, a good five round fight with fringe pretenders, and when he gets into the ring with any top contender s he gonna lose.

Calzaghe - Kessler hate threads. I am a part of rhese I know, but I sometimes wonder why on earth I keep wasting time and effort on it. It is one of the most anticipated machups. However many quality posters on both sides has given up the endless mudthrowing.
