As I've said many times,the only problem I have with K2 is that some of the fans wish to change history and attempt to taint Lennox Lewis when their own guys have done pretty well themselves.
If I had to take one thing that really bothers me on this site(apart from obvious things like shitty posters) it would most likely be sweeping generalisations,like because you come from Britain,then you're a "Brittard" or implications that every K2 fan is like Vladimir and Awesome or Floyd fans are all like PrincessN.There will always be groups that make these comparisons inevitable but I found it disappointing that Broner's win at the weekend seems to have stoked massive flames of hate for Ricky Burns.
I admit being biased towards Ricky but it's not often someone you've met a few times goes onto achieve huge success as a world champion,and I probably would only be starting to appreciate him now if he was from say,Bristol,but I think it's not outrageous to state that if there's one boxer that doesn't do anything to deserve this sort of hatred(allowing for the fact that he hasn't had the success of other likeable guys like Wlad) then it would be Ricky.I realise a lot of people are coming to find out about him just recently but isn't that the whole point?
There are still plenty of people in the UK who don't like Ricky,but the spite headed his way in light of Broner's victory puzzles me.

And I'm well aware you'll remember that I told you something that annoys me and use it in the future.
That wall of text looks menacing and now I feel kind of bad: the post you have quoted was nothing more than a joke, sorry (genuinely).

I transcribed it practically word for word, verbatim. Don't shoot the messenger. Incidentally, I agree with every word Burns said. It's irrefutable.

Team Elite are one of the best, most respected organisations throughout the entire boxing fraternity, as will soon be witnessed at the impending Team Elite Awards ceremony.

Well that's that I suppose.

Tell me, do you find it strange to have some "team elite" Internet persona? Do you ever at times feel it to be a bit excessive? I'm genuinely curious as you are somewhat of an oddity in the time I have spent on ESB. Do you often find yourself using the words "pwned" and "minions" in person?

If you could answer those and get back to me real soon that'd be great, thanks.

No, I don't. It is not a persona. It's a philosophy.

The extent of Team Elite's reach throughout the boxing fraternity will be revealed this weekend at the Team Elite Awards ceremony.

And yes, I use words such as 'pwned' and 'minions', as well as much more obscure vocabulary, such is my mastery of the English language. After all, Team Elite's Latin motto is 'Pwnius Miniones'.

Why are you so obsessed with British people

It's pretty creepy. Insecure much?

You mean to tell me I'm responding to a guy who says "pwned" and "minions" in real life? And is proud of it?

LOL

This is too good. Think I'm being trolled.

Why would I not use these words, given that I pwn minions on here every day?

Surprised Slyk and GJE dont get on actually, what with them both being monumental bell-ends and all.

No reason, carry on.

"Mum, bring me a TV dinner or you will get pwned, you minion". Is it something like that?

What's funny is I posted that before I listened to the interview, not even knowing he has a particularly horrible british accent.
