I haven’t had a chance to watch the new IFL show yet … I’ll probably catch it on Sunday morning, provided it doesn’t aggrivate my hangover to vomit-inducing levels. One of the new things that was convincing me to try it (AGAIN) was the ‘new’ team concept, based around camps. But according to XTreme Couture, the camp system was totally bogus. They submitted a list of 7 fighters for the event, and the IFL only used one. What’s worse, they tried to add fighters from American Top Team to the XTreme Couture team:
We have 35 athletes that train in our Las Vegas gym and proudly wear the Xtreme Couture patch on their shorts during fights. Yet the IFL decided to field a team called “Xtreme Couture” without putting any Xtreme Couture athletes on the team. The Patriots didn’t show up in the Super Bowl with a bunch of players from the Packers. Why would the Xtreme Couture name be put on the line and not be represented by Xtreme Couture fighters.
Man, I really don’t get what the fuck is going on in the heads of the guys running the IFL. They finally have a concept that doesn’t suck balls, and they’re completely destroying it with this contrived bullshit. We’ve already seen they have no respect for the tournament format at all, and now it looks like the ‘camp concept’ is fake as well. Fucking IFL. When are these idiots going to learn?
