    So terrible.. No words for that. Oprah doing the gesture at him of a cord going around a neck was pretty distasteful.

    I rented the new documentary a couple weeks back, just goes to show how his life went downhill after his mentor died. He had the wrong people looking after him.

    Yeah he changed a lot. His performance in fights drastically changed after he switched camps too.

    dont think she was being malicious when she did that, but more so describing what happened.

    poor mike :hs:

    but i wouldnt discount the fact that he was probably a shitty father

    I agree. It's just that doing that action and making him see it while trying to conduct an interview isn't a good idea. I think that if I had to see somebody do that after it happened to my kid I would have to look away or close my eyes. He doesn't need a reenactment

    Maybe not though. Often, men with shitty parents end up being some of the best parents because they can't imagine someone else going through what they went through.

    This is where you're wrong. You made fun of his daughters horrific death. You didn't make fun of Mike. In case you didn't notice, we make fun of combat athletes all of the time. Exodus Tyson was a little girl who died a painful horrific death and you think it's funny to joke about.

    Nobody expects to change you. You're immature. Just know that you have problems.

    i got a kick out of the predictable way oprah showed pics of his daughter and pretty much kept at him until he was crying at an acceptable level. anything for ratings i guess, torture the poor bastard about his dead kid until he cries his eyes out on your show, stay classy oprah

    this isn't the main forum. a guys kid dying isn't really part of combat sports and making fun of it is even more fucked up than what i'd do. i'm no mike tyson fan but shit dude, his kid died

    Im so sick of hearing about mike tyson. The guy needs to just open up a boxing gym and pass on what the old man taught him

    I never get tired of watching anything about that guy!

    Usually champions with that much talent don't have the emotional problems he has. I know that isn't a good thing, but it is pretty interesting.

    <3 Mike
