dont you hate it when you are trying to trade someone and that stupid player update asterisk appears only to show how shi**y the person is performing? let the people do their own research ugh...

i had a perfect deal all set up to deal McClung but now the other owner backed out because of what the player update said. how frustrating

I fail to see how this is Yahoo's fault.
Can we build it?

because the kid im dealing with is too stupid to know better, but when its thrown in his face that mcclung is stinking up the joint is screwed me out of my deal in this particular instance. obviously for yahoo its in their best interests to post this news, im just ranting how frustrating it is.

So you're trying to pull a fast one on somebody, but Yahoo has built in ethics enforcers?

you said that you knew the other guy had no idea that McClung was getting roghed up, that means you knew McClung was and you were taking advantage of someone b/c he didn't know a fact that you did


that does not even come close to "taking advantage" of someone. "taking advantage" has negative/sneaky connotations and i did neither of those. i only knew he had no knowledge of this unitl AFTER he rejected the trade. maybe me talking up mcclung while knowing he was getting rocked constitutes as taking advantage but cmon give me a break..... all i did was offer him.
