so it seems like going foward, if someone says something assclown ******ed we should either agree or say nothing

but if me or bitchface say anything thats less ******ed it deserves 5 pages in the faq thread, actual temp bans and possibilities of permabans

whats the point of trying if there is a legit 0% chance of said person changing their mind? i'd rather waste my time on arguments that are close and that i have a legit chance of changing someones mind (or my own mind since the argument is actually close and not a ******ed joke argument)

also lol @ singling me out when tons of other ppl do the same thing, not even just tz regs but se regs. if someone posts that ben roethlisberger is the best qb in the nfl, how are nfl regs gonna react? are they gonna break it down and explain why they are wrong? lol no

edit: also i don't really read nfl threads but a little birdy on skype jus said u are the king of no content lols in nfl threads so that's even moar hilarious coming from u

aggressively stating that joe thornton > pavel datsyuk without any substantive defense should be a bannable offense.

one thing i will never understand is people that spend hundreds/thousands of hours discussing sports but don't seem to want to learn how they actually work.

the casual fans who just want to pop a beer, relax in front of a tv and not think about it i get. but people who apparently love sports enough to spend an absurd amount of time talking about them on the internet but not enough to spend a fraction of that time learning don't make any sense to me.

different strokes tho

idk, i think that CHOKEZ/WANGZ thread is the SE equivalent of the "hitting zone" behind the net in the NHL. anything goes, bro!

Exactly damn right. There is nothing wrong with enjoying sports as mindless entertainment. Or as some form of crude morality play. Or in whatever way that floats your personal boat.

The problem with "learning how [sports] actually work" is that even the deepest analysis is only predictive, it's not determinative. Luck is a material factor in pretty much every game and no matter how much study you put in, you will never "solve" a sport in a meaningful manner (unless possibly beating Vegas is meaningful to you).

I agree. But Phildo's point is this: Who comes on to a forum to say JETAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH all damn day and talk about how sweet his defense is?

In the past two days 72off has stated that Jeremy Roenick was never a top-10 player at his position in his prime and cited +/- defending players' defensive prowess. If he's allowed to do that, AJ should be okay.

Chances are good a simple Google search will uncover what you need to know, and if you can't find it then, you should then ask questions.

But again I understand such thinking is generally not accepted as reasonable for sports discussions on this site.
Part of the reason I lurk the MLB thread but read the vast majority of it is because I just don't understand the stats. And as I've said previously, I have no desire to learn the stats. I am one thats perfectly content with avg/era/obp with the knowledge that they are very inferior stats.

Two reasons I have no desire to learn is that among my friends baseball is the most discussed sport(they understand that football is my job and discussion is minimal understanding that). These guys are casualsportsfan.jpg and avg/rbis/hrs/wins/era are their best arguments and I just don't want to get into how its flawed because its just friendly convos.

The second part is that baseball is my "get away" sport. I dont watch basketball or hockey(though I'll have the games on my TV its more noise than anything). I just want it to be casual for myself rather than get caught up with it. And that casualfan.jpg doesn't go well with the MLB regular season thread(rightfully so as the stuff gets lol'd at in the NFL threads, I get it).

He had(/has I guess) legitimate reason to be pissed at me, he never actually "said" that JR was never a top-10 player during his prime but I took his post as heavily implying it as such.

no, you asked if they were any good, when the previous X number of pages were specifically talking about how bad they were. it seemed like an obvious troll given that the #1 seed just went down 0-3 in a playoff series. but yeah, keep playing dumb or whatever this gimmick is supposed to be.

It is easy to single you out because it is all you do. All day erryday you trollin'

Is there some kind of unknown rule I have missed that has allowed Epi to just continually troll and such? Why is Vic banned over him? Sincere question, btw, I thought Vic was pretty useful at times at least and Epi has been at a pretty close to 100% trolling rate for some time

Is there some kind of unknown rule I have missed that has allowed schwallie to just continually slobber all over lebron, never add any content and snap at anyone who even slightly bashes his boy? Why is Vic banned over him? Sincere question, btw, I thought Vic was pretty useful at times at least and schwallie has been at a pretty close to 100% only talking/slobbering over lebron and the heat rate for some time.

I would expect nothing less, classic Epi haha. I like it though, but I've actually talked quite a bit within the other threads about other teams etc recently. Slowly getting better at NBA
