Disclaimer: If this gets me an infraction I genuinely couldn’t give a flying **** because this is a topic I’m very passionate about.
Arm-Chair GM, by far the most used feature on the site which allows us to express our takes on how our favourites teams should be run, that’s all well and good but the issue this post dives into is the mock trades that are posted in them.
I’ve seen my fair share of mock trades that I absolutely hate, I’m sure we all have, they pop up at least multiple times a day now I don’t have a problem with that generally even when the creators get defensive about it. What I do have an issue with is people making the same exact **** and expecting a different response, firstly what do you expect? If a trade is universally panned on that should be an indication that they don’t like it and it’s impossible to change their minds. Secondly if your going to try sending the same player over to the same team, unless they say they don’t want him or don’t need him on their team at least alter the package, then you could get a different response, it’s no different to negotiating contracts. This should be common sense but clearly that concept hasn’t reached the creators at all. Here’s my favourite example of this:
Toronto gets: Shane Wright, first round pick and other ****
Seattle gets: William Nylander
That idea has been universally shot down yet people still decide to put the SAME ****ING IDEA IN THEIR’S AND THEY EXPECT A DIFFERENT RESPONSE LIKE IS IT THAT ****ING HARD TO SEE THAT IF THEY DON’T LIKE AN OFFER THEY WILL CONTINUE TO SHOOT THAT IDEA DOWN?
Ok sorry about that last chunk, I’m just too passionate about this topic.
I want this sentiment to be known across the site: If people don’t like a trade offer, never offer that **** again.
