    At the beginning of the episode, we find out Charlie Rader has had his son taken away (Chuck wants to give his win bonus to him for legal stuff etc.). Tony gets butthurt over some beer shenanigans , tries to fight him, then taunts him with calls of “where’s your kid? where’s your kid?”

    So why didn’t Charlie just take a chair and smash him in the face with it.

    If the others didn’t intervene we would have seen a potential blood bath I think.

    Tony is… I don’t know what to make of him. I sure as hell didn’t like the comment. It made for exciting television but it was just a really wrong thing to say. I don’t know how he feels about it nowadays and I’m sure the press will hound him for his comments after the show is wrapped up but until then my opinion of him is that he’s a scumbag.

  7. Jamie Locke says:

    Very shitty news for Davis…. Not being able to fight again for someone so dedicated must suck pretty bad. Especially now, like he said, things are starting to look up for him. We all know what the exposure of TUF does for a guys career, no matter how well he does on the show, the paychecks are much bigger once you’ve been there.

    Also, that Toney guy threw some low blows there. I hope he gets a beat down for those comments. I think it would have made for better TV if dude would have smashed him right there in the house and got it over with… I’m personally not one for drama, get it done as soon as possible….But I guess that’s why I don’t run a realtity TV series….
