    I agree that as of late race has become an increasingly charged issue but in this circumstance, and coming from a white dudes standpoint, I think the people involved have a right to be pissed off. Insinuating that the only reason 3 successful fighters are on a news desk talking about fighting is because of their skin color is pretty fucked, especially considering there is no damn way he would’ve said that if it was three Caucasian fighters.

    Probably true also. I just think it's more sensitive based on who is saying things like that. Overall I wish we could just leave race out of discussions. I think it was Morgan Freeman that said to just quit talking about it and it would get better. Shaub should have kept his trap shut I agree.

    I liked Schaub during his humble beginnings of hia new career when he was a student and was eager to learn. I thought he was suckin Rogan dick too much at the time but didn’t mind cuz Rogan somwhow turned into his mentor aftwr that “yiu suck at fighting” talk.
    Then he had a pretty good run of picking fights, most were pretty accurate and he was humble about his comedy, I think ppl gave him a chance (myself included).

    Then... May/Mac happened.
    Schaub was hired by showtime to give his two cents but he started throwing in nickles and dimes.

    Starting with the awful analyzing skills, fight predictions, Nate Diaz punking him, his weird story to make himself look good by letting Rashad slide with the bets, was juat the start.

    His success in comedy and podcast got him super big headed, he tries not to act like it which is funny cuz the more he tries that, that’s how he appears and now most of his bits, interviews, segments became usually about himself than the topic or the guests.

    He does have plenty of following but I believe they’re only the fans of Rogan, if some reason, Rogan and Schaub split, most of those fans will be with Rogan.

    Life has to be pretty good if a comment like Schaub made is what sets you off. There are so many more things that could actually effect someone. I had no idea about Schaub saying what he said until this thread.

    I've never been much of a fan of Schaub. Not a hate either. While I don't find his comments racist or insensitive, I also don't find the topic nor how he discusses it intriguing. If he's gone, oh well no sweat off my back. But so many people are so easily triggered these days, and this is supposed to be the fight game.

    Bingo... Thats why I was saying since the start he should have never
    touched this subject. He literally cannot win and especially given the current
    political environment.

    His star is certainly rising so he's doing something right. Just seems like
    a crazy dumb move here. I listened as well and taken in context he was just
    trying to be funny while talking to Kevin Lee.

    He got caught up into thinking he was just one of the brothas' and
    crossed a line he shouldn't have. Its just the way things are man.
    He should have left this shit alone

    His stand up isn't actually bad for the amount of time he's been at it

    Shaub has no substance - his beliefs sway like a leaf on a tree blown by the wind.

    His brief moment of fame can not last due to his lack of substance / truth ...

    When the listeners tune out ...his downfall will be hard and I hope he has some "real" friends left to help catch him on his way down or things can get dark fast.

    And Rashad is very good on camera. Schaub dismissed that as soon as he brought up race. Edwards is starting to become better, and T wood is also doing a solid job.

    lol 32 signers.

    Did he really say anything racist? He pointed out the fact that white people see black fighters as scarier... seems like he's pointing out racism, not saying something racist himself.

    I will say I never understood the appeal of Brendan Schaub. Don't find him interesting, funny or entertaining.

    I think they all do a good job. Karyn as well. I really don't get what
    Schaub was getting at with the "Are these the most qualified people"
    angle. I don't think anyone does a piss poor job.

    Bisping and Florian do fine as well.

    Schaubs comments just make zero sense

    For sure tell us what exactly the fuck you are talking about Brendan

    He was suggesting with his comments that those folks are behind that desk because they are black. And you're right, it is not really racist to say such a thing. He just disregards their talent when he makes those remark.

    And, why can't the panel be all black? Why comment? What's so weird about it? The Basketball court is pretty much all black, no one cries racism? Maybe they're there because of their talent. They just happen to be black. Schaub ignores all this and chooses to make divisive remarks that are in these times considered sensitive.
