It is time to talk about that thing that makes this league better than any other league you will join this year... it's time for a wager. As usual, the first wager of the year will be mandatory. We can talk further about voluntary status of our bets after everyone does at least one.
I'm introducing a new game:
The Defensive Poster Throwdown!
The rules are simple. Whomever has the lowest scoring defense in week one has to churn out eight posts in a row that are incredibly defensive and try, to the best of your ability, to replicate the well loved posting style of B00bie/AZ_. The posts must be hyperlinked in here when the deed is done.
Prepare your defenses, boys. Tuesday B00bie returns... and the B00bie might be you.
Act smarter than whoever you are replying to. Call every argument a strawman. Be obnoxious about it. Pretend to be a professional scout.
It also helps to trash a moderator or two that has been helping you out by accusing them of abuse of power or being in league with a conspiracy.I keep no record of B00bie's greatest hits. Here are a few of his most recent posts before getting shit-canned.
Blame everyone else for your own words and how they are interpreted:
Are you not in the political threads? I haven't been for about a year. I made a sarcastic comment in response to a sarcastic argument, and was subsequently banned. Have subsequently asked to be re-added, but the powers that be have only given me a vague explanation for what specifically is...realcavsfans.com
Here's one that was deleted. Notice how he deftly claims someone else's opinion doesn't matter, then flips it into how he isn't allowed to talk about the subject matter he himself brought up originally:
This isn't what I described as uniquely American.
This is a straw man.
But nevertheless, this is not the forum to further expand on this fallacy.
...So basically focus on blaming other posters and the board for opinions you hold, which are the only acceptable opinions. To go full B00bie, try to pick minor details of a topic to become completely defensive about.
