Play with your friends and family. You avoid that problem and have a great time. I have never played in a public league, nor do I intend to. Even if it's 6 or 8 guys, it's still better to have your own league, IMO.
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray

I've played in Yahoo public leagues, never trashed anyone, and won by a mile. Shut 'em up quick. ;D

I don't think I have room for any though. I have... let's see...

My work league...
My keeper league...
My auction league...

Hm, maybe I do have room for one... :-D

You have to first define what a loud mouth is. In my experience, there are two types:

1) The braggart. He's the one who thinks he's the greatest even if he's in last place. He is also usually the one who brings trash talking and stupid Jim Rome crap ("out") into the league. I, personally, find this type intolerable because there's no way to shut him up, either by winning or being right in an argument.

2) The drink stirrers. This is the type who likes spirited debate and good natured ribbing. His posts are usually clean and often amusing. Though often not accepted by many genteel leagues, they are usual harmless. They don't like the usual "Boy, Jim, nice trade" crap and often rub the country club type players the wrong way.

I believe there's way too much 1 and not enough 2. I am a 2 type troublemaker and damn proud of it.

Locking a loud mouth from the message board is a chicken sh!t thing to do...depending on the talk. If he's saying "Your mom is a ho" or "Your sister was good last night", then sure warn him and then lock out if necessary. If he says something like "the Red Sox suck" or "I'm kicking the shit outta your team", and you simply can't take it....then grow a set of balls.

So many times I've seen a commish get his assed whooped and lock out a manage because he can't take the heat!! You after all are the one that allowed him in the league (perhaps try screening the owners better!). I'd certainly prefer a loudmouth to 80% of the inactive Yahoo contingent that say nothing all year long.

If you want to shut them up...then beat them!! Simple as that!

What about football from Chris Berman? Halla halla halla hay, halla halla hallahow(chris Calloway. why? no one knows) Cris Carter, all he does: Catch touchdowns(yes i got that from the first 3 times he caught a touchdown and you said that same phrase) Tha rai, rai, rai raiiiiidarssssss(are you having an ashtma attack) and what about that Jake Delhome thing? You can tell the guy is the boss when he keeps bringing that crap up and you see Tom jackson and the guy who goes boooyyahhhh laughing and the same time grinding the teeth hoping for him to shut up!!!
