When will newspaper reporters who have seemingly little knowledge or
acceptance of MMA stop writing editorialized articles that refer to the
sport as "human cockfighting" and "savage". The front page of the

emblazoned with the title "'HUMAN COCKFIGHTING' GOES LEGIT" and
the article touches on several things such as boxing's self-destruction

I know little about Cricket. I wouldn't write about it or even form an
opinion on the sport, its rules or fanbase without first gaining a
thorough knowledge on the sport. It baffles me how quite a few
generic sports writers continue this bad practice.
I know some argue that bad press is better than no press but this isn't
the 90's any more when John McCain's comments held any credence.
The sport has become more evolved than this article gives it credit for.
These guys need to take a page from Neil Davidson's book.
