OK Everyone, you wanted a forum to talk about more than the IKF, and we AGREE! :)
So feel free to post about other events, news, people, etc. etc. We want this particular forum to say it all, the Good, the Bad & the Ugly. :eek:
Or as we say... [color=red]"Bring It ON!"[/color]

Well done, IKF. Although we sometimes disagree on our viewpoints, I have always believed Steve wants what is best for kickboxing. We just sometimes disagree on what that is. Putting this forum on the board that you pay for is a nice touch.

It's amazing that as soon as you say you're willing to accept posts about "ugly"...Zach is the first person to respond! :D

I thought that by now you would have the "Bring it on" thread loaded with controversial statements but, we are still waiting. Mr. Pogue, get this party started. Let's hear what you have to say about the tournaments and promoters involved in such events. Entertainment the masses with your humor and insight.

Why would you want to bring out the negative in something?
09-22-2006, 12:17 PM
Sir, do not confuse my statements as such that I seek out negative comments from individuals such as Mr. Pogue. You must understand that in any organization the information that is put on the table cannot be assumed negative just because they hurt someone or some organizations feelings. The ends sometimes justify the means. I requested Mr. Pogues comments because of his first hand knowledge of the 3 major tournaments held this year. (IKF, USKBA, WAKO) I also seek Mr. Pogues comments due to these irrefutable facts. Mr. Pogue is honest, impartial, and straight forward with his statements. Mr. Pogue states exactually what is on his mind without prejudice. As with most, Mr. Pogue favors no single organization over the other. He favors the sport and its positive growth. AS WE ALL DO!
Now, to be quite honest. IF, this receives negative comments, GREAT! If not, then apparently every organization did EVERYTHING right and there is no need to improve. I for one doubt this is the case and therefore invite any and everyone to post in an effort to improve the tournaments and the sport. This is our opportunity as fighters, trainers, parents, and fans to speak our mind in hopes that those who can make a difference pay attention and take the necessary steps towards making that difference.

Mr. Pogue would like to take this opportunity to announce that, due to his irrefutable fame, power, insight, and devastating good looks, he will now refer to himself in the third person.
Why must it always be about the negative? Can't we all just get along? Yes, it is true that Mr. Pogue has been inundated with tales of suckines with regard to the tournaments over the last few months. But he wasn't at all of them, and there are lots of people who were, so ask them for their opinions.
Mr. Pogue did attend an event near Minneapolis, a world title fight in fact, where the dummy promoter scheduled an outdoor event with no tent or any other contingency in case of rain. Apparently all the funds set aside for tent rental were spent at the local Dairy Queen. Maybe some attendees should come on here and rant about that debacle.

"Good Times" would like to take a minute to call a spade a spade with regard to the tournaments, though. There was definitely alot of crying from many parties about everything from soup to nuts surrounding the LARGEST KICKBOXING EVENT EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE MODERN WORLD, conveniently located in Virginia Beach. Unfortunately, Mr. Pogue was not there. Mr. Pogue, however, was involved with the USKBA World Tournament, which although was a nice event, was also an organizational nightmare. The reponsibility of this does fall into the lap of Mr. Pogue, so Mr. Pogue won't be pointing fingers at any other organizations at this juncture.
Suffice it to say, he believes that BOTH other organizations have alot to learn about having their game together from the IKF tournament. That's the truth.

Randy? Nothing about the coin flip? I spoon feed you an opportunity like this and you miss the flip!
Randy, I'm ashamed of you.
