I think most trash talking is an attempt to get into your opponents head, and to get yourself worked up for the upcoming game.
As long as you arn't saying you want to hurt someone, i have no problem with it.
Of course you always run the risk of making yourself look like a fool if you get your ass whipped.


Bingo!

There is tons of psychology in sports. Tons. If a battle is close, sometimes you have to use psychology to win it. Part of the game. Always has been, always will be.

trash talk etiquette dictates that no matter how big of a "I was wrong" concession the trash talker gives, it does not exempt him from having to eat his words and take all the shit that he has coming to him.

it's not about talking the high road. it's about not being the one to make himself look like an idiot.

Does that go for people who back A-Rod and Ted Thompson too, Bozz?

If A-Rod tanks this year, or gets hurt, do people get to say I told you so.

Boy.....you just can't wait, can you?
Fact is, it hasn't happened yet. And it may not happen at all.
Here Rodgers did a GREAT job last Monday, and instead of admitting that and giving him props, you sit a drool hoping he screws up, JUST so you can say "I told you so."
REAL classy Roddy.......REAL classy.
Rodgers has been great so far, so........I TOLD YOU SO!!!!

Gee Cheesey,

I seem to remember making the same arguments here about BF.

Guess the grass is always greener, eh?

Gee Cheesey,

Did i ever say i was hoping for BF to suck?
Did i ever say i can't wait for BF to fail so i can say "I told you so?"

Nope...........didn't think so.
HUGE difference between me and you and your and my arguments. Of course i don't expect you to SEE that, or ADMIT that.

Fact is.......it is what it is. BF is playing with a different team.....not the team i am a fan of. I wish him well.....as long as it's not against the Packers. Aaron Rodgers is now "my" QB, of "my" team. I, unlike you, am a GREEN BAY PACKER fan. I want MY team to succeed. Quite frankly, i don't care if the Jets win or lose.
You want the Packers to fail.....why? JUST so you can say "I told you so". I guess if thats what you live for, thats your choice.
My suggestion is for you to go to a place where your hatred of the Packers will be more accepted. Say, PPO for instance.
Right now "my" Packers are 1-0, Rodgers completed over 80% of his passes, threw for a TD, ran for a TD, and threw ZERO interceptions.
Here he was GREAT, and all you can do is wait, HOPING he gets hurt or plays bad. Like i said.....REAL classy.

Cheesey.

I never said that I wanted the Packers to fail. YOU projected that.

I said, "if they do fail", then blah blah blah...

I happen to think that Ted Thompson pushed BF out the door prematurely. And don't give me that retirement crap. Ted Thompson had been showing BF the door for years in different ways. Even if you don't agree, that's the way BF felt, so it has to have some kind of reality.

I happen to think that Aaron Rodgers is not the guy who's going to deliver the Packers the Championship, and therefore, by default, neither is TT.

Don't try to put words in my mouth.

This is just something I believe will happen, not necessarily something I wish to happen.

uffda udfa (1h) : Julio with Rodgers would be out of this world. We'll never know, though.
Zero2Cool (2h) : Jordy, the real #1 got his before him so he is more elite. Deal with it. Game time coming!
uffda udfa (2h) : Another #1 gets his $Julio Jones signs 5-year extension; $47M in guarantees
uffda udfa (6h) : They don't Steve...but Wilde had Guion as "IN"
sschind (9h) : guy will be ready injury wise by week 4 have him toke up and get caught.
sschind (9h) : how soon before teams start asking players to violate policy so they can keep them on the team and not have to countthem on the active roste
steveishere (10h) : I don't think suspended players count toward the 53
uffda udfa (19h) : Incredible! Wilde's 53 man roster doesn't even have Datone Jones as "IN"...he's "looking good". Sad, a 3rd year 1st rounder isn't a lock f
Smokey (23h) : Attention Guests: Come join us here in the Forum ! A great place to post !
Smokey (23h) : 3rd Qtr/ Jax 17 Det 13
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
