Does anyone notice...

Post  Modofo on Sat Oct 15, 2016 7:46 am

Does anyone notice anything weird going on in the middle of this fight?

MINUTE 4
The referee grunts and says 'What you got in skull--big hole?'
QUIRE anxiously awaits his enemy's upcoming blunder...
QUIRE aims a crippling blow with his XXXXX
BLACK HOGAN's tower shield is hit by a muscular shot and it deflects the attack easily

BLACK HOGAN gives some strategic ground

We really need to do something about this. How can a gladiator have a serious battle with that going on?  jocolor

Clearly, the bears were brought out due to the fight being slow and boring. Wait, am I being too serious in response?

Doing a text search for "dancing bears" to see how many times it has come up in my fights.  I've seen it before.

Dux, you may not have noticed it, cuz it shows up when a fight is slow, which leads to skimming a fight.  Then there's the fact that your fights tend not to be slow.  Brutal is the first word that springs to mind.

Good points, Vic. On top of that, I know which lines mean something for me as a manager and which are just filler, so I skim all fights for the important stuff. My eyes simply go past that line every time. I had to reread those posts you put up to see them because of the ingrained skimming that I do with BP fights.

I presume that's not even a "shake that bear" joke?
