Team Tanner is small

When Evan Tanner started Team Tanner, I immediately signed up to the Team Tanner email list to see what the fuck was up with it all. Originally I wasn’t planning on becoming a part of the team but when I saw the sickass shirts they were giving with $100 memberships, I decided that if I still had some money after booze, drugs, and miscellaneous Hello Kitty paraphernalia, then I would definitely possibly maybe become a part (maybe).

Well, it looks like I’m not the only one who’s blown all their money on a Hello Kitty Tarina Tarantino Bride Choker. Because if I’m reading the latest Team Tanner email correctly, only TWELVE people have donated over the past 3 weeks. Of course, the concept is still very raw and I’m sure most people are waiting for Evan’s first fight to be officially announced before committing cash to the cause. But you’d figure with all the douchey people hanging off Evan’s nuts on his MySpace page, he’d have at least 30 or 40 people by now!

Full text of the Team Tanner email after the jump

Hello everyone!!! Christmas is almost here…..I hope everyone has all of their shopping done!! I can honestly say…..I do not! I have been too busy. I did drop my daughter off at the mall this weekend and she spent $400 on like 2 tshirts!! haha I will save myself at the very end with season passes for snowboarding for this winter and to the local amusement park for the summer. I know it is kind of like cheating BUT if you don’t tell they will never know! :)

I would like announce the members of Team Tanner so far!!

I want to extend a huge thank you for all of the support of Team Tanner. I would like to say however it looks like we need a few more people that names start with J on the team lol

I hope everyone has a blessed holiday!!!!

    “…We get a lot of emails…”

    Yeah, around 12.

  • rpw229

    Lets just come out and say it already, Evan Tanner is a whore

  • Xavier

    A washed up druggie whore at that. Who can’t sail. Or run kid complexes.
    Or his life.

  • Mobb Deep

    Its 2007. Time to turn back toward corporate sponsors. Not that many rich hippies who like MMA around.

  • falkofire

    are the shirts still gonna be numbered?… if I sign up now I can be Number 13?


  • matt(tapout name shitstain)

    Is this like the mayhem monkeys except I have to pay for it? Sign me up.

  • Lifer

    im not cool enough to be on the mayhem monkeys.. ask kyria if she’ll rename it to “tanner rehab patrol and conscience facility”. i would join then.

    if this guy is spending $200 on 1 shirt why am i giving him my money exactly? that’s a retarded price for a shirt especially when your dad has $0 and a wing and a prayer of getting good enough to stand up to the current middle weights.

    i feel like i am funding his christmas and since im a bible burning athiest i dont agree with that at all.

  • Accomando

    “…im a bible burning athiest…”

    Lifer, no suprise there. Veganism has become your religious ideology, with urine for holy water, raw veggies for the bread of christ, ect. ect.

  • Fred

    I wouldn’t count on any of this until we see Tanner in the Octagon. The whole thing is dicey, but I wish the best to him.

  • sussy

    I think you would look very pretty in that choker.

  • Clay Guido

    How dare you mock Team Tanner, you all wish you could roll with us.

  • UFCPreview


  • Jerry Millen

    FL, seen any of this guy’s MMA animations? Seems like it would be something fitting for a site like FL to be exposed of.

  • fightlinker

    Id be afraid that he has 50 hookers dismembered in his basement.

  • MacDaddy

    I just hate the shirt. It looks like an affliction shirt, whenever some noob comes into our gym with an affliction shirt on, I make them cry.

  • MacDaddy

    on the other hand if some guy came into the gym with that hello kitty choker on, I would be scared of him. I mean, that’s got to be one crazy motherfucker, right?

  • Kyria Christison

    I was sent a link to this page…..not sure why…… BUT I started reading some of the posts and I thought I would post as well.

    I receive 50 or more emails a day inquiring about Team Tanner. There has been a lot of interest but many people are waiting until after the holiday to sign up. I also believe after Evan’s fight is announced there will be even more interest.

    I am not going to defend the idea of Team Tanner but as for anyone questioning if this is “dicey”, I can tell you that there is nothing “dicey” about it at all. We are working very hard to make sure every person who joins the Team is happy and gets something valuable in return for his/her contribution. I came into this after the idea was created and would not put my name on something I did not believe in. My husband and I value the people who are in the MMA community so we would never back anything that was not legit.

    If anyone has questions or concerns, please feel free to ask. You can reach me at or through myspace at or

    Thank you for your time and I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.
