Dan Wetzel on Jim Rome
Quick note. Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports was on Jim Rome today talking about the CBS' debut EliteXC show and he summed it up beautifully.
"If you’re a fan of MMA, then what EliteXC trotted out as a main event was mostly an absurd exhibition. It’s like tuning in for the NBA Finals and finding the And 1 Mixtape Tour – only with announcers pretending Hot Sauce is a better player than Kobe Bryant."
Wetzel said the same thing most are saying, including myself. It was good to draw new people in because they will soon see how EliteXC is a freak show and that the real sport is much stronger. Check it out for yourself.
I totally agree on his argument that if a different promotion was on CBS, like the Affliction card in July or the WEC card from Sunday or any UFC show, the sport would BLOW UP and become huge. That's what is the most painful for MMA fans. This could've been so much better with a different promotion. Still not a total loss, but could've been much better.
