Photo of Kris on web site
« on: July 01, 2004, 02:04:14 PM »
Hi,  

The Gathering 2004 was an awesome event.  Love the industrial feel at the RAW gym.

I noticed that bloody photo of Kris Donnage on the Home page of the DB web site.  It was a "cool" injury, and Kris took it well.    If I was not mistaken
in my observations, the injury was a scalp scrape from a stick technique
during the groundfighting portion of the fight when the helmets of both  fighters had been removed.     I hope the photo is there for only a few
days and is then moved to a "Wounds" gallery.  Although I enjoy
watching and doing this sort of fighting, I think such a photo on the Home page is counterproductive in promoting the event.

BTW, does anyone have an email address for Kris ?  My lovely
photographic assistant Ally snapped a photo of this in what may be
interpreted as a religious context:   Arm of God (Marc Denny, head obscured) with his arm on Kris's shoulder.  Over Marc's shoulder
peers the eyes of a Satan-like creature.  The photo is unposed.
I'm not particularly religious, but the photo strikes me as such.

Here's a small version of the photo, which also isn't appropriate for
a main page photo :

Woof Gints et al:

That "Satan-like creature" peering over my shoulder is Pappy Dog, the man that Kris cleverly just headbutted in the teeth.  
 :P

Anyway, I'll be glad to get the pictures to Kris-- he'll be training with me on Monday.

woof,
