Trash Talking Etiquette

Postby Lucc » Tue Aug 06, 2013 8:55 am

Tell me what you think: First, I don't believe in trade vetoes no matter how lopsided they are. So this isn't about that.

Quick backgroud. Team in 3rd behind me in the standings traded Anthony Rizzo for Alex Gordon and Nelson Cruz, and seperately Aoki for Peralta back on June 15th. We all knew about the PED bs so both owners figured smart to get out now, even at a loss (Rizzo deal).

So yesterday Cruz and Peralta were both put on the trade block, with some BS about how they are solid keepers blah blah blah. I felt compelled to call both players garbage, and should be dropped and left alone and only an idiot would pay anything for them.

Riot ensued: "Honeslty dude mind your own fucking business, you can have your stance but with others trying to get deals done that's crossing the line, so seriously shut the fuck up".....

My response "I find it offensive you're trying to trade these players"

My question: Did I cross the line? As I see it fuck him, he took a gamble and initially made big gains....He knew the risk, and as being a competition, its my right to voice my opinion so he doesn't get much or any value, fuck him I want to win.?

I don't see the problem with saying what you did, or with him trying to defend himself as he tries to sell off his players...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Cool, I didn't think so either. Type of guy first to place snide comments when teams put players on the block. I just it took it up a notch and he couldn't take it. Thanks...

i, personally, think you're taking this WAYYYYYYY too seriously.

He has a right to put those players on the block (and Cruz, especially, could be a decent keeper option).

While you can a right to respond to him putting them on the block, you shouldn't be at all surprised at his response. If you are, perhaps you shouldn't have said anything to begin with.

we agree to disagree. Leagues are all different. This is guy who talked his way into giving up Hamilton to a bottom team and receiving Cingrani, Travis wood and Allen Craig. To the LAST place team.... Like i said I don't bitch about trades, never do, but I'll be goddamned if I don't say my peace before Cruz nets him anyone of real value.
