I agree I don't want to see ten posts of "BP just sux in the 4 hole", but there has to be some middle ground.
Or else all you have is George Grande like commentary. Thanks, but I'll have to pass on that.
Re-read the post. There is no ban on one word posts -we're just encouraging you to add something about the play. When a guy reads the GT to get an idea what's going on "Shoot" or "Dang" doesn't tell me what just happened. Okay?
I'm not slamming someone because they posted "Grrrrrr!" after a bad play or strikeout. Personally, I'd just like to see a description of the play - not 11 posts like Grrrrr. After I read what happened I may Grrr with you.
