good informative article about eleiteXC
where is it posted?
it talks about everything and uses big words, does he have anything left for another article.
I guess i'm the only one that thinks he cant write. Then again, it was still better than 99% of MMA articles.
And MLA needs to get a ban for posting for someone who is banned [/humungus]
He's technically proficient, which is more than can be said for most web journalists today, MMA or otherwise, but his writing is indeed lacking in the way of style and voice.
Plus the obnoxious use of quotes is just that... obnoxious.
well, i believe it's lacking, and would rate a C with my english teacher
exactly, just extremely amateur.
Guess i'm overly critical cause i;ve been recruiting a copywriter for the past month and have had to read WAY too many shitty journalists that think they can write copy.
very cool, where is this posted?
I'm not a prodigy when it comes to writing, but I'm just one of those people who can write well (no, not one of those people who believes so but are really imbeciles) due to a fuckton of reading as a child and a couple of highly skilled writing instructors.
Semi-informative - check
Big words - check
Long winded - check
Bounces from fact to opinion a ton - check
Sounds like THE CUNT
Not bad I give it a B, something about its pacing and format irritates me but its better than alot of shit I read in regards to MMA articles.
I still cant believe how many articles I read that cant get fighter's weightclasses correct.
I liked it, I think it was a bit big, but so is Humungus I miss his insight and his witty insults. I mean I didn't always agree with his opinion and sometimes I thought he was reading stats too much, but he's a good guy, and isn't closed minded. I don't get all the hate.
couldnt get through it.. reminds me of a guy who used to write press releases for bands.. very systematic.. very little feeling
At first I just read the title. Then I skimmed through it. Then I read the whole thing. I don't mind the insipid style but I feel that there's too much lacking from trying to cram everything into one article. The KJ noons thing and the Gina Carano thing could've been articles on their own. If it was focused mainly on EliteXC and its business operations compared to the early Zuffa-owned UFC it could've flowed better.
No you're right. This reads like a big forum post, not an article. He'll improve though if he keeps it up.
so who the fuck does he write for
is it a secret or some shit?
