    I liked morrison until I read "weird scenes inside the canyon" by Dave Mcgowan. Morrison was an industry Plant. Morrison's father even orchestrated the gulf and tonkin resolution, bringing us into an war with Vietnam

    What bothers me about Gray is how smug he is. I appreciate asking them direct and difficult questions — that's their job, contrary to what FMJ and others thought it should be — but Gray shows no decency at all. There's a diplomatic way to make your point, but when someone has just been seriously concussed at least show basic human respect.

    He was the same way doing baseball. No one wanted him to grill Pete Rose the way he did at that moment, because he already had answered those questions. Gray was just trying to grandstand and bring some shine to himself. He's a POS. I think Steve Farhood is my favorite in-ring interviewer.

    I think Gray is fine. He is honest and says what many people think and asks what they want to know. I don't see the problem.

    I know people who would push you off the top of a skyscraper for saying that lol

    Mr. Mojo Risin is one of the coolest dudes to ever walk this earth and The Doors are one of the greatest bands of all time

    I was the same way, my father loved the counter culture. It turns out nearly every band associated with Laurel Canyon were industry plants. The crazy part is the Monkees used to get flamed for not being authentic, it turns out many bands were using Ghost musicians "the wrecking crew" to record their music lol.

    A lot of people posting on this forum:

    "I don't want no Wilder-Breazeale!!! I want him to fight AJ or rematch Fury!!!"

    Jim Gray says the same thing.

    "HOW DARE HE SAY THAT. IT'S SO DISRESPECTFUL."

    Larry Merchant has to have the best put down line in history when he tired of Mayweathers bleating & crying " No body loves me no one gives me any credit & you dont know nothing about boxing Larry " Larry's reply was a gem " If I was 50 years younger I'd kick your ass myself " ROFLMAO That shut Mayweathers trap lol

    That was one of the dumbest things I've ever heard him say. If he was 50 years younger you can bet your ass Mayweather would mop the floor with him.

    And Merchant's all time worse performance was Pacquiao-JMM 4. Horrific.

    Don't forget my man Brondigity put Grey in his place. Said he would beat him 7 times or something. He also put Fat Dan Rafael in his place in the post fight presser asking him if he likes cheese burgers.
