Don't be "That Guy"

Postby nsulham » Thu Jul 15, 2004 11:58 pm

We all have them....you may even be one...."That Guy"

The guy in your league who always does something wrong or something annoying or whatever.

For example:

"That Guy" who always says at the Draft 'Man wait til you guys see my picks, I got some real sleepers!'
"That Guy" who always jumps on the "Sleeper Du Jour" waaaay too early
"That Guy" who constantly nitpicks everyone else's selections (either out of jealousy that he didn't get that player or whatever)

What advice can you guys offer to people in an effort to make sure no one here at the Cafe becomes "That Guy"?

Phrase it something like "Don't be That Guy who......"

Don't be that guy who brings alcohol to the draft and ends up getting hammered and blowing the second have of the draft on drafting a bunch of no-names or retired players.

the guy that had the first pick in my draft last year did this. he drafted McNabb with his first overall. Needless to say he finished did last.

oh yeah,

don't be that guy who thinks that perennial underachievers will turn it around this year (ie Thomas Jones.) ;)

Don't be the guy who brings Magizines for other GM's.....

Don't be the guy who says " I can't believe ______ is still on the board"

Don't be that guy who sucks his teeth after every pick....

Aww, low blow. I'm "that guy" that thinks T. Jones is going to turn it around ;P

..don't be that guy that spews his pick's stats every round of the draft. Save it for after the draft!

"Of course I picked Vick of CPep, I mean historically he... blah blah blah"

dont be that guy who takes forever to decide between josh mccown or deion branch in the 14th round

dont be that guy who takes marshall faulk with the 7th overall pick because "did you see his 2000-2001 season?!"

dont be that guy who passes on Fred Taylor in the early 2nd round because 3 years ago he has an injury, talk about paranoia

Don't be that guy that takes forever to decide on a pick only to choose someone already selected.
