"No one can really say that another persons opinion is wrong." (Kendall)

The only reason that that isn't the most sensible thing anyone has said is because

"I don't know whether boxing is cruel, primitive, and nauseating, but the bickering on this thread sure is."

That probably is. And yes, I contributed to it.

Mr MacKenzie - I will apologise to you if you feel my direct response to you was over the top. However, I and others feel that your opening post was considerably worse than that. "You are your DEMONSTRATED behaviour". Not what you think you meant, but what other people heard (so I'm an argumentative bastard then! ;-) ). Several people, not just myself, think the tone of your post was way out of line, ESPECIALLY considering the fact that it was made in the immediate wake of the death of a man who was a fine competitor in his CHOSEN sport. Maybe it was just bad timing on your part. But do you see, why some 'catters think you should be challenged?

Jack - give up on the prissy Brit point. You're in the wrong on that one. And yes, I am a Brit, but that has nothing to do with it. That was ad hominem and nothing else.

BTNG - you add nothing to this discussion except petrol. You're not discussing; you're just stirring.
