    The OregonLive folks better catch on quick that this place is quite a bit different than where they came from. What flew there does not fly here. We razz each other, yes, but we (mostly) don't hit below the belt or tolerate personal, ad-hominem attacks - unless it's directed at Denny because he deserves it :)

    You want to play in out sandbox, you need to up your game.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    It doesn't really matter how he meant it, what matters is what he actually says. If his attacks are limited to the content of your posts, that's within the rules. Going outside the content of someone's post to attack them isn't. If you simply don't like him, you're always welcome to ignore him. There's even a forum Ignore function which will cause that person's posts to become invisible to you.

    People are allowed to attack your posts whether or not they "back up" their opinions. From a good discussion standpoint, obviously, it would be nice if everyone backed up their posts well with some combination of logic, evidence and/or stats, but that isn't something we can enforce via rules. You don't have to engage with people you don't respect enough to talk to.

    How 'bout them Red Raiders?
    They put the pain on Blaine, but not fully on Sedro-Wooley.

    Before signing those guys, we had $25M in true cap space. No MLE. That money was offered to top tier FAs who declined.

    If you kept Crabbe, he'd be our starting SF. If not, it'd be Layman.

    Plums would likely be our starting C, re-signed.

    Our cap situation would be roughly the same, today, as it is today.

    Bingo. It takes guts to post here. You make a bad take without backing up what you say and you get called out. Sometimes I think we can be a little harsh but I'd much rather have that then some board where people just post touchy-feely, unrealistic crap. Hell. That is what r/Ripcity is for.

    Nonsense, plenty of touchy-feely unrealistic crap here too. Takes all types to make the Internet go 'round.

    True sarcasm doesn't need green font.

    Not sure who I'm quoting here but someone in the forum said it.

    That said, my sarcasm meter simply doesn't work.

    Yes, sense. Of course if you just want to hear, "HAPPY! HAPPY! JOY! JOY!" And get downvote into oblivion for saying something in a passive aggressive wind tunnel, that's what reddit is basically for. I'd rather have people tell me I'm full of shit say it to my face. Which you're more than welcome to do! :smiley-beerchug:

    How's that New Year resolution treating you? :dunno:

    Bruh, I have a 29 inch waist.... You can see my 8 pack from space. It'll take you decades to fix that bourbon barrel. :smiley-hvala:
