U guys call out bad trade offers publicly in your leagues?

Just curious. When you get a bad offer from another manager, do you ever call them out on it publicly in the league?

No, but apparently someone called you... I mean someone in your league out on a bad trade offer.

all of the people in my leagues are friends and everyone knows the reputation of owners in the league.

No, nobody called me on it. Someone was called out though.

Nope. I think it is bad form to discuss any trade proposal in public. It can give a serious advantage to another manager IMO.

only if private discussions accomplish nothing in terms of improving offers. no sense burning a bridge until you know nothing's going to cross it.

seems like a jerk move to me...everybody proposes bad trades from time to time...it's part of the negotiating process. :-D

I hate owners that do that. I never do, I never even mention the player's names on the public message board that are being negotiated with. I don't want to compromise the other team by letting everyone else know who he wants to get rid of and what he needs and ranks low/high.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I won't call out an owner if a bad trade proposal is made to me. I will however make my opinion known on league boards if two other owners make a bad deal with each other.
