    Default Still the best forum. It's been years...

    Years since I've been a regular here, but it's really nice to see the forums or at least from my one post about women in the UFC that it is still very respectful and intelligible forum.

    Respect. Dobber Hockey is still great. I've moved on from being a hardcore fantasy hockey player. But these forums are still one of my favorites to check out once in awhile.

    Now, if only Mixed Martial Arts/MMA/UFC had a fantasy thing that could be applied and DobberMMA opened up . I'm also glad it seems peoples thoughts of UFC/MMA have changed over the times into something positive. None of this barbaric cockfighting comments. Fantastic.

    Again, this is still the best forum. And that's amazing.

    Women's MMA Highlight I created... sort of a tribute to them finally in the UFC http://youtu.be/v6NN9E9mG_E?hd=1

    I agree. This is typically one insightful and respectful site. I never check into the forums outside of hockey, but if they bear any resemblance it's likely to carry there too

    I think Dobber MMA would be a fantastic idea. It is growing exponentially in the mainstream and has practically made boxing all but extinct.

    I'm such a huge MMA fan myself that I could potentially even be motivated enough to contribute the occasional articles here and there *gasp*.

    I don't think it would be all that hard really, other than finding a site that could/would host. I think you could set one up and run it similar to a box pool and do it on paper, or a spreadsheet even, if it came to that. (And yes Loch I get all the possible double entendres in that last sentence.)

    Just run it like a salary cap hockey league. Give each owner a set amount to spend to build a stable of fighters across all weight classes and allow them to pick and choose between fighters to assemble their team.

    Since MMA goes year round, break it up into 6 month seasons. Every 6 months regenerate dollar values for each fighter based on performance from the previous 6 months. And it doesn't have to be 6 months, it could be a full calender year or even 4 month seasons.

    I don't know that a standard draft would work as fighters don't all go on a regular schedule or have equal fights in the year.
    Maybe something like an NFL pick'em tournament?
    Pick winner, round, type of victory (tko, submission, decision)

    Most points at the end of the year... anyway, I dunno.
