    i would never wear a "tap out" t shirt. ever. that shits corny.

    i dont like the betting wager stuff.

    i'd be willing to throw money on it, if someone talked to jeff and had like a $10 entry fee then every 4-5 fight cards it resets. that would be cool.

    i kind of like the idea of getting points for wins and 2 points for guessing the win + round + way of ending.

    they are shirts for rednecks and posers. no legitimate fighters are wearing tap out shits unless they are unfortunate enough to be sponsored by them. its even worse than affliction shirts.

    sure there are some... but most people that wear them don't train. a lot of people around here think its corny as hell. you'd get laughed at wearing that shit around here by most people who actually train. i can't stand tapout shit. its mostly worn by douche bags and posers.

    a lot of kids buy them because it gives other people the impression that they fight which is cool to them.

    there are some people that just like rocking tapout stuff, but if im not sponsored by a fighting company, you wont see me wear their shit. its corny. but tapout is by far the worst.

    I say 3 points a win - 2 points the correct finish - 1 point the correct round... maximum 6 points a win.

    maybe minus 1 a loss?

    i'm getting in thissss

    I think it's wack if you don't train but if you train, I don't care. I see people who train jits wear tap out shit a lot.

    And you're not "posing" if you do train. But to each his own....

    yeah. i guess i learned my lesson once. my dad bought me a brazilian top team t shirt and it was an awesome shirt, but i knew i shouldnt wear it around my gym or really out of the house. one day i was late to train and threw the shirt on thinking it was a different one. since we arent BTT i was super embarrassed when i got there and noticed i had it on. i heard my trainer say to my main instructor "olhe seu camisa" and even though i had just started taking portuguese i could understand he was talking about my shirt, my instructor looks at it and is like "what the fuck is this?!" and he chewed me out for a few minutes and told me since it was a gift i could wear it in the house but never out of the house. so embarrassing.

    so from then on i just wear my teams shirts and my sponsors shirts. even if i wasnt sponsored i would NEVER wear a tapout shirt though no matter what. they are corny as hell.

    Yeah, I'll probably go with this at first and see what happens from there. I probably will only count the wins though.

    UFC 93 will be the trial.

    yall don't really like the betting idea? All I was thinking was "if this guy wins, you gotta give me x amount of points" type shit. Just could make the debates around here interesting. Not something you have to participate in, but I wont do it if yall don't want it.

    As for the shirt discussion, I don't like the fad either, but I actually like a lot of affliction's shirts. I don't own any, but I wouldn't be against it.

    Tapout shirts are boring imo.

    my trainer knows a guy in brazil and he told them about me and they wanted to do it, now i get tons of free shit and all my tournaments paid for. i love it. i didn't have to do any looking. i'm the only one i know thats not a pro fighter thats sponsored so i dont know how to find sponsors, but i think if you want to you can just send videos of you winning tournaments and credentials and stuff and they might check you out
