Trash Talk Gone Bad

Postby Mookie4ever » Fri May 28, 2004 4:09 pm

In my worst league (I am doing bad and I don't know the other owners, who have all turned out to be a-holes) the owners do not know how to trash talk.

Some friendly banter quickly turned nasty.

The league just posted this message on our message board:

It has been brought to our attention that some members of this league have been personally attacking other owners and writing profanity in the message boards and through email. The Terms of Service for our site include the following statement:

"You represent, warrant and covenant that You will not upload, post, transmit, distribute or otherwise publish through the Service any materials which: (a) Restrict or inhibit any other user from using and enjoying the Service; (b) Are unlawful, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, profane, or indecent; (c) Constitute or encourage conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate the law; (d) Violate, plagiarize or infringe the rights of any third party including, without limitation, copyright, trademark, patent, rights of privacy or publicity, or any other right of any third party; (e) Contain a virus or other harmful or potentially harmful component; (f) Contain any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, spam, or any other kind of solicitation; and/or (g) Constitute or contain false or misleading indications of origin or statements of fact.”

Talking trash is something that you need to be careful about. It must be done with some taste.

Consider this a warning - stop the personal attacks. Have some class when you contact other owners in the league. If this happens again, you may be removed from the league.

Please behave yourself.

Enjoy the season everyone, and may the best team win.

The Commissioner Staff

Things were getting tense bu somebody obviously sent a PM that was bad enough to get Sportsline off of their fat lazy backsides and do something.

We should teach a course in trash talking - the Sportsline "Tasteful" Trash Talking 101

That is funny, I have never heard of the host putting up a message like that, and our league talks a bunch of crap to each other...most of it I would not let my mom read.
