Anderson Silva did not throw his fight with Chris Weidman

I am hoping to argue with another MMA afficionado over Anderson Silva's stunning loss to Chris Weidman via KO. I have recently seen several commentors speculating that Silva threw the fight to get a bigger rematch. I will be arguing that this is not the case. Obviously there is no concrete evidence, so we will be left to hypothetical examinations of pre and post fight behavior. Burden of proof is on Con to present arguments for Silva intentionally losing the fight. Voters should vote based...

According to social conservatives, gay people are deranged, perverted or otherwise unfit to provide a safe, functional and/or loving family environment in whic...

are sports players paid to much

I think that sports players deserve to be paid a lot. Most sports players have been practicing their whole life and have worked very hard to get to this point. Also sports players usually give a lot of money away to charity and other things like that. Sports players provide entertainment for the whole world. Most people really enjoy watching sports and it really encourages them. Also they need to provide for their family and they are away from their family a lot. Over all sports players defiantl...

Steve Young is a Better Quarterback than Joe Montana

egg234

Steve Young is the better quarterback because he has a 96.8 QB Rating (1), whereas Joe Montana only has a 92.3 (2). Steve Young also has fewer career interceptions, more rushing touchdowns, and a higher passing completion rate than Joe Montana. After seeing both players perform in person and on television, it is clear to me that Steve Young is superior in his athletic capabilities, and his quarterbacking skills.
