Is it okay to talk about undrafted players during the draft?

Postby FantasySportsMaven » Sun Mar 21, 2010 1:59 pm

I've always thought it was bad fantasy manners and even a bit bush league for owners to talk about undrafted players during the draft?
Nothing would make me angrier than to have some knucklehead fellow owner mention a player I wanted to draft, only to have the guy in front of me then draft him.

What do you guys think?

Hehe touche'. :-]

I guess my "always" only includes real drafts and not pretend/mock ones. :-D

It is funny that you noted a mock draft which included Indybuck since he is OTC in the draft to which I refered, while others are discussing who he should take. :,-(

Yup. (Never took you for being an Alanis fan?)

I wonder which undrafted RBs I mentioned in that thread... since I have no memory of ever posting it? :-?
Sorry.

I don't think it should be done personally. In the one league I commish which drafts in person I don't allow people to talk about guys not drafted.

You are playing against people competitively. Why give up information and give the opponent an advantage.

Would anybody like to hear my rant about "irony" in this song? There's nothing ironic in the song...but I guess "Isn't it ironic? Dontcha think?" has a better ring to it than "Isn't it a coincidence? Dontcha think?"

Plus, it is racist too. Why did the nasty "white" wine ruining fly have to be "black"? Huh, huh????
Yeah, that man hating Canadian is surely racist. :-D

I pull the same rant out every time I hear that song, none of the situations she mentions in that song are irony.

The irony is that there's no irony in a song about irony, so you see how it actually is ironic.
