The Sweet Science & Boxing Channel Forum Contest: 2014

forum-Contest 9f532Featuring: You.

Beginning today, and scoring on the 15th and last day of each month, the assigned moderator will be selecting a best post, a runner-up and an honorable mention. To insure everyone's best effort, we'll offer a cash prize of $500, $300, $100 respectively for both the TSS forum and Boxing Channel, along with an awarding of points 3/2/1 for each forum as well. And yes, the same person can win both in the same period of time.

The moderator is to receive $1,200 for their half a month's work which entails policing the forum for maniacs, keeping the peace and helping threads move along. We don't expect you to comment on every post of every thread, but we certainly do expect to see your input and influence during your reign. Also, during your half month's effort, the awarding of points will be at your discretion.

The moderators? You. This part is easy. We allow the most active members to start us off, and it's their choice to select which period of time works best for them. They can coordinate this with Editor Mike, and there is no limit on how many times someone can helm the forum.

Bad decisions. As you're aware, I deplore poor scoring. So this is where I come in. I won't change their score, but I will insist that they'll never have a second opportunity to botch it up.

It begins today, March 7, 2014, and concludes Christmas Day. We will start off with two-time ROTY winner 'brownsugar' for the next twelve days and then whoever follows him will oversee the balance of this month. The individual with the most points at year's end gets a great trophy (by our standards), and we'll fly you and a guest to Las Vegas at our expense for a dinner that is hopefully memorable, maybe even legendary... if you follow my drift.

Tie at the end of the contest? I decide. So you should want to be nice to me.

This way, the process grades itself. Hopefully there will be an uptick in what is an already solid forum, and who knows, maybe you'll meet an interesting boxing personality or two over dinner.

dino da vinci says:

I like it. A belt it is.

Radam G says:

Deepwater2, the boxing mind is thinking like a boxer suppose to holla. Boxing is a thinking person's game. But you have to think quick, or you will be lame. Way to shoot, D2, and ditto, DINO! Holla!

brownsugar says:

This is going to be interesting, with a "Murderer's Row" of Contenders... The TSS must have the strongest Forum on the Web. Loaded to the brim with members from every facet of the Sweet Science and every corner of the globe.

So much so that when they get cut.... they bleed knowledge...when get warmed up They drip their passion for boxing from every pore...

I'm thankful for the privilege to be your first contest moderator and I assure you the scores will be fair... If I've had any beefs... squabbles or altercations with any of you,.. consider it squashed. Some things are bigger than petty disagreements and this contest is one of them.

I encourage everyone to come out and express your passionate opinions even if you don't know what a boxing gym smells like, or just learned that Muhammad Ali is no longer the champ.

Now Touch gloves and protect yourselves at all times


Radam G says:

Witty and slick, B-sug! I'm gonna have still that: "when they get cut.... they bleed knowledge..."

Congrads on being the first moderator. I know that you will judge them fair and won't C.J. Ross or Daune Ford them. So they better be on their game.

With WBC champion Tim Bradley's ritual of not washing his arse a week before a bout, I'm certain that most of the cats here wouldn't wanna smell his gym. In the words of long absent TSS poster/reader Smiley C: "Fo' sure!" Hehehe!

Y'all muthasuckas HEARD the moderator! Touch 'em UP! Hahaha! Holla!

brownsugar says:

Bradley's got a strange habit he's should've never talked about. fighters do all kinds of stupid stuff for luck.

amayseng says:

As a ballplayer, we are notorious for being superstitious, and I will admit to wearing my socks certain ways, my hat, holding a bat , tucking or untucking my shirt, only putting a specific number of sunflower seeds in my mouth, sitting in the same seat on the bus for over two years, eating the same damn food everyday for 13 straight days because I was on a streak and even staying away from girls for even longer(3 months!!)....But hell did I not not wash my "backside" Timmy is a dirty birdie

brownsugar says:

Hagler used to spit on the carpet at hotels and become real surly and anti-social. but yeah,... he did take a shower.

amayseng says:

Yea didnt Hagler say that his training camps were like going to "prison" ?

I think by fight time he was bitter, unhappy, pissed off and ready to bang.

What a great fighter.

Radam G says:

Hehehe! You guys are wilding comically. But the first advise that an old skool trainer would do with a new fighter is teach the fighter how to clean his arse and how to shower.

Many of the inner-city fighters had/have broken showers and toilets in their homes. So they just did something that they called "washed off." And they used newspaper to clean their hinnies. Because they claimed that their moms could not afford to purchase arse wipes or toilet paper.

I guess that they didn't know how to use their hands and water. Hehehe! Maybe that is un-American.

I don't believe T Brad for a minute. He's just trying to draw more butts in those seats, because he wants to keeps getting gifts and treats. Maybe he went a week or two without arse washing when he was not in the money. But nowadays, his money deep-pockets arse is stretching it. Another d@mn trick of the trade for promoting purpose.

TOTT are everywhere. Holla!

Radam G says:

Cleanliness of the body is very important in boxing, because of boils, skin rashes, cuts and scrapes that one can easily pick up from being filthy. So how is somebody going to believe Big Foot?

I remember trainers back in the kiddie days also giving the soaps, shampoos and lotions to hygiene ignorant and naive fighters, who didn't know the boxing training law of cleanliness.

This is the sweet science. And just as there is a science of training for physically and mentally fighting, their is a science of cleaning your arse so that you can do it at max. Holla!

the Roast says:

So this Pay Per Post thing is happening? I always wondered about Dino when he was all "I'm with management, I was talking to Editor Mike the other day, we gonna have a monthly contest, the top ten posters will be flown to Vegas." because none of these things have ever happened. Do you guys remember when the Three Stooges would run into that old guy who would be freaking out because his three lead actors have quit and the show starts tonight? The Stooges would vow to save the show and rehearse and create mayhem but then right at the end the men in the white coats would show up and take the old guy away because there never was a show. I was thinking maybe Dino was like that old guy. A little bit off his rocker. If this is for real you can start sending checks to Milan, Italy c/o the Roast.

dino da vinci says:

@Roast. Yer right. This Dino guy has talked about flying the top ten posters to Vegas to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of TSS for a while now. And seeing that we're at the 9 and one-half year mark, let's try to figure out why it hasn't happened yet. :-)

the Roast says:

Damn skippy I'm right. Dino could be just some nut claiming to be some actor/director from Italy when he's really a truck driver from Chicago or something like that. There's alot of crazy mofo's out there. ; )

Radam G says:

Hehehe! Invite the Roast so that everybodee and dey momma can crack up at his wisecracks. Hahaha! Holla!

Grimm says:

@Roast: You get more beautiful with each avatar you upload. What's the secret?

Whiskey.

Carmine Cas says:

Whiskey.


It fools the eyes well, talk about optical illusions LOL. Jk

Radam G says:

Hehehehe! The Roast is just too d@mn smooth with his witty, deadpan comedy. Hahaha! Holla!

The_King_AJ says:

Hey! I don't understand what is meant by we will follow from Brownsugar for 12 days?
I will start in June!

dino da vinci says:

@ King. Because we didn't launch on March 1, we split the amount of time remaining in March, with brownsugar helming the top of the month, and 'The Commish', Randy Gordon handling the second half. We are now in the midst of the Roast's 'Fifteen Days of Terror'. So far, so very, very good. We have Arne K on deck, and with that said, I could not have been more pleased with how much professionalism our mods have brought to our forum.

El Dude says:

El Dude is in it to win it so expect a Boxing commentating war of gentlemen ship because I do not come to lose. I wish all the contestants the best of luck and hope that everyone's comments stays in boxing content.

Radam G says:

Welcome El Dude! The West and the Pacific are rising now. So Cali! Holla!

Excellent attitude. I'll be watching. Bring it!
