    This is rampant on this site and other dfs products. It’s why many athletes don’t like DFS. Yeah the guy in your lineup isnt doing so well, he’s not a piece of shit or worthless. This is the ugly part of DFS I’d like to see done away with. It adds absolutely NOTHING to anything. You don’t have to post every thought that comes to that brain of yours. Try civility instead, thanks.

    Can’t believe I’m replying to this…. but……….

    People pay their money to go to live sporting events. They cheer. Or they boo. So are you saying people can’t boo anymore when they go to a game and some idiot player forgets how many timeouts his team as left and screws up the game winning shot? You can’t yell at a guy to shoot the puck with 1 second left and when he doesn’t because he doesn’t realize how much time was left you BOO him?

    If I enter hundreds or thousands of dollars on a contest and some idiot doesn’t run out a double that drops in fair cause he thought it was foul, it is certainly my right to call him out on it.

    It’s your fault for gambling on the wrong player. You don’t get mad at the number 4 for not showing up in the lotto numbers do you? God damn that 4 sucks, can’t believe i picked him, what a piece of crap the number 4 is!

    This isn’t something new that was brought on by DFS or even seasonal fantasy sports. People are passionate for their hometown sports teams and you ass in a lot of alcohol and most live sporting events are not fan friendly places.

    If the players are ultra sensitive they should delete all social media accounts.

    All that being said it is sad that is the way sports are as I enjoy sports and it’s sad that MLB is the only sport I would ever consider bringing my kids to as they offer family friendly alcohol free sections.

    Guys, I’m not talking about going to games and booing. I’m talking about the DFS community.

    It’s really the same thing. Some guy yelling profanities at the game because his team is losing or some idiot doing it on Twitter. It happens in both places and isn’t only a DFS community issue.

    You asked for an opinion, he gave you one, and now YOU are trashing him??!!?
    Using your logic you should also not cheer for a player because he did something positive.

    You should boo and cheer the player for that day. If something happened in a championship, bring up how they choked or were clutch every once in awhile, but don’t attack them on social media to the point you are psychotic, and live goes on!!

    I think that pretty much closes this subject.

    REAPER RULEZ!!

    EDIT:
    That #4 always screws me over, that is why I always skip it when I count to 10!!

    I like the #4, I only need most of 1 hand to get there

    I can’t believe how sexist your post is. Why can’t the #4 be a she. Why assume its a “him”? BIG BIG problem. Where’s a moderator when you need one

    Too many broke ass people playing dfs that dont know how gambling works getting mad when they lose their $5 buy in.

  • damionismyname

    Ppl put their faith in a player thinking he/she is good. That player then turns out to no be good and ppl get mad because of it.

    They are already good players if they’re professionals at it.

    Lots of trash players make it but that besdies the point. You’re putting faith in that player to do good that game and they suck. Then you question your beliefs/choices which makes you angry.

    You are right.

    Kevin Na, I would like to apologize.
    Sorry for all the bad things I said about you the last time you withdrew.

    People are playing their last 5 dollars in hopes they can win enough money to move out of their mom’s trailer and buy their weekly amount of meth

    I’d be happy with the meth and still being in my mom’s trailer TBH.

    I agree with everything said here. It’s pretty sickening. Realize every player in your lineup is a gamble. Just because the player doesn’t perform the way you want him to doesn’t give you the right trash then on social media. If you do, it’s time to grow up and get a new hobby that doesn’t make you so mad.

    If Tommy TightEnd costs me, let’s say, $950,000 because he drops an easy pass and I go from first to fourth in the milli-maker and I lose by exactly the amount of points that his reception would’ve accumulated, are you really saying that I can’t be pissed at him? Sure, it’s my fault, because #BuildBetterLineups, but I did build the better lineup. I did my job. He didn’t do his job. I’m pissed at him.

    Having said that, I completely agree with premise of this thread. There is no reason to call him out on social media, but really, who cares. Twitter is a dumpster. If this scenario literally happened to me, it wouldn’t even occur to me to call out Tommy TightEnd. If it happened to you, you might feel the need to @him on Twitter. Ok. Whatever. Outside of those who use Twitter for work (like the DFS touts) 98 % of Twitter is just people yelling at each other, and saying stuff they’d never, ever, say in real life.

    I went with Urshela, LeMahieu, Tanaka and Ford in a contest last night. Urshela struck out 4 times! I got a combined 7.5pts from those guys. BUT you will never see me on here or anywhere inputting “Wishing his mother never had him” “What a fat piece of garbage” “Just retire already, you pathetic loser!” and so on. I’ve got class, and wont degenerate to such lowbrow juvenile nonsense when I lose. I am passionate about the game, and DFS, and sure I get pretty disappointed and ticked when someone drops the ball, but you wont get that garbage from me.

    Sure be upset with him. No issue there. That does not give one the right to trash him on social and tell him “he sucks at life.”

    Soft. Most people are soft. It’s easier to blame somebody else.

    I think the points been made but while I’m here I thought I would say that I always play the 4 😆

    Actually, I do. That number 4 has screwed me more times than I can remember. Also, Number 1 sucks as well.

    It is just how sad we have become as a Country under this Trash in Washington, Name-calling and berating others is the new norm
