I can't make any promises, his behaviour goes from 'normal' at times, to all out eccentricity, but I assure you that he's in the top percentile of boxing knowledge, maybe at 2% even.

1 man can not significantly change the rankings, just slap maybe a little 'edge', which can be 'countered'. Like I said, one balances the other.

Plus, he is necessary, he is a visionary.

As long as CHJ takes it seriously he can add a much needed dimension to it all. He is very knowledgable (when the post isnt about Calzaghe), youd be surprised. But then again, if he doesnt............well.......

I refer you to this section of the Constitution:

EXPELLING A VOTER

At its discretion, the voters may bar one of their peers. If any two members of the group formally ask that a member be expelled, a vote will take place on voting Sunday. If the board votes to dismiss the member at a 66.67% rate, that member immediately and permanently is removed from the board and the poster's rankings will not count for that month.

However, if an expelled member would like to reapply, he may wait six months and then do so. The expelled member then will be subject to the same 66.67% rule that applies to the general population.
_________

I'd like to think everyone gets a fair shot, and if they screw around, they get the boot.

He can go over the top often. And I wouldnt trust his opinion too much on anything Calzaghe or Calzaghe related (notice how everytime there is a possible opponent for Joe, CHJ has to make the obligatory thread demeaning them?). But again, he knows his shit....but also can be very hardheaded.
