it's a fact that it is done and done frequently by most if not all teams. not much room for opinion there.....but whatever. :lol: it's like saying that salespeople exaggerate and poker players bluff. that's part of the game. i don't know how you can take all of those quotes and statements i posted and doubt that it happens. just too funny that you can look at all that and still say it is a matter of opinion that it happens.

You stick by your quotes and statements, I will stick by my side... Obviously, you and I share very different views. You could be right but I am not a person that likes to lose a debate, argument, whatever you want to call it. Sorry for sounding like a complete ass but I am not a person who just calls it even...

The best thing I think we can do is just let this thread die, isn't that the best thing to do? Cause obviously we will continue to argue our case, regardless if you think I don't have one.

I laugh as you get more PO'd cause people don't agree with you. Smoke screens have been around for years. The scenarios can go on and on. Teams with the overall #1 pick hinting they are going to take a player another team desperately wants. Get them to trade their pick for that #1 pick and also gain additional picks. In the meantime get exactly who they wanted all along.

Smokescreens are as much part of the draft as the actual picks.

Actually, what is most laughable is the fact that you think I am getting pissed off about this. I am no where even near pissed off with anyone with forum because unlike some of the newcomers that come on this board and take offense because someone doesn't see eye-to-eye with you, I actually just take it in. I've been on this forum long enough to know not to take things so personal on this forum, even when someone doesn't agree with you.

Furthermore, it isn't like anyone is insulting me or I am insulting them, it is just a friendly debate, whether you consider it one or not.

Again, I am not going take anything personal on here. I respect all huddle members and that includes Rayzor.

OK however you spin it. "Believe what you want to believe" sounds a little irrirated that all aren't on your belief.

I assume you are talking about someone else when you say "newcomer" cause I have been around for many moons in this forum.

Yeah that wasn't really a reference to you, just these posters who come on here and make false rumors and then get blasted for that.

and in regards to the "believe what you want to believe" comment, wasn''t mad or anything, just trying to let this thread die down... Trying to get you guys to move on to the next topic.

Good post. I appreciate your not taking it personally or needed to personally attack others when they disagree with your opinion. We need more folks who discuss the issues without feeling like it a competition to be won or lost instead of debated and discussed.
