    People telling other people who to start/sit via the smack talk box

    Jon I really don't have a problem with you and I truly have more respect for you in trying to stand up for snake because it's obvious from my and several other posts that everyone feels he is being a baby about this and instead of just starting his best lineup he wants to keep people from interacting with others because they "may" give some advice that will cost him a win. I just think if you're going to make a rule that is so ludacris you need a majority vote or it needs to be laid out in the beginning. I still stand by comments that snake is in a middle school leage and I believe he is a sore loser. Jon nothing but respect, you're a guy I would love to join our podcasts every week.

    • Conner:

      You are wrong about a few things. First off.... This isn't about MY MATCHUP. I am the commissioner of the league, and the premise of my rule is to create fairness and consistancy from week 1 all the way thru the playoffs. This particular issue really only starts happening about week 10 due to playoff transparency.

      Furthermore.....I created this rule back in August before the draft. I put it in the league notes right next to the payout information, so all members have known about it. Yet recently some chose to break it. Now I'm forced to somehow "penalize them", so I turn off their smack talk box for a week to send them a message. If they do it again, then I give them their money back and say "thanks for playing." Adios.

      Further yet....if the rule was so ludacris, then why is there people on both sides of the fence posting in this thread. Must be more viable then you are giving credit?!

      Lastly.....take a note from John, and realize that if you call people names....they won't listen to you, so you are here wasting your time. Why post here if people discredit you due to your need to name call.

      Also, his name is JOHN... quit spelling it wrong, its written right there for you.

      • Snake, if you notice most people are on the side that you should be allowed to post. Also I think you're the one who is being discredited. I think you still have failed to answer why keep people from giving advice, they have shows, papers, magazines, etc. I think you're a player who is scared they will lose, I'm sorry you can post whatever you want but I have a feeling this is directly costing you. I also notice that I've outraged you because you're trying to jump on me about spelling but when my name was spelled or instead of er you never pointed that out. I think you know my argument outweighs yours and you're irate. It's ok to admit you were wrong and say thank you for the correct advice, that is why "John" has my respect and I'll let you know that my elementary school nephew wants to play next year with his buddies and I'll get your e-mail so you can join a league, and I promise not to give him any pointers because I would hate for him to be disqualified.

    • I'll start by offering a sincere thank you. i dont have any problem with you either. we just don't agree on some things...but that doesn't mean either of us is a 'bad person'. while i don't feel that snake is a 'baby'...i don't agree with the rule any more than you do, just for different reasons. a) it won't work, b) it's too large in scope. it would restrict the rights of owners that they are entitled to, and c) like you...i believe that where it's at all possible, rules need to be in place at the beginning of the season, not inserted at the 12 week mark. snake may be a baby...a sore loser, or...he may just be trying to do the best to correct a situation he genuinely believes needs correcting. i don't like to get into motives on limited information. you mentioned a podcast. i'm interested. maybe some more info on the subject? '

      i'm glad you wrote back in a very respectful tone, regardless of our differences of opinion. that speaks well of you.
