Do you usually take the advice given or do you usual go with your inital gut instinct?

Sometimes I ask for advice just for confirmation or on the off-chance someone has some inside info on a player that I didn't hear about, but I'd say about 50% of the time, I do what I was going to do anyway.

Anyone else tend to do this?

For the most part. I like using the advice I get as a second opinion on what I'm going to or thinking about doing.

Also, since player vs player evaluation isn't a strength, I like getting others thoughts too.

I usually have a pretty good idea what I am going to do before I ask a question and it always helps to hear others confirm what you are thinking...or tell you that you are an idiot. It also depends on who is giving the advice, there are some regulars on here whose opinions I would give more weight to based on the postings that I have seen them make in the past.

I don't usually pay much attention to the short responses ("Do it/Don't do it", "Bench Player X", etc.), but if someone gives their opinion with their reasoning, I will give it more weight. If I det a detailed response, I can then base my decision on whether or not I agree with their reasoning.

Dido. A lot of times, people are just answering your Q so you will go answer their's. Mine go either way. Sometimes, I don't really have any insight, just who I think I would play and just say so. They can take that for what its worth. Other times, I have reasoning for the choice, and I give that reasoning.

I generally agree with this. Although, if a lot of people have answered (like 6-7+), even if its just a one word answer than I'll usually stick with it. Plus, my gut is almost always wrong. I think it's not working properly.

I usually dont like to ask questions in the start/sit or trade forums since I think I know my stuff and I would rather run my team besides "the cafe". However stuff in leftovers I use alot and take into considerations alot of the opinions on different things expressed in this forum.

very well said...


i ask for advice to see what majority thinks, but i can guarantee you it will sting alot worse if you go against what you think, and take everyone else's advice and it ends up crashing and burning, i was told alex smith shouldnt start vs philly and warner should, i went against it and it paid off...


everyone also thinks maroney will be a better start then barber and im going to go with my gut and go with barber, rather lose on my own....but i do take advice into consideration if its well thought out instead of "id go with player b, here's my link"...if i even take the time to answer ill give reasoning and depth of why i think its a good choice usually so i hope i can help out
