Player Bashing
« on: January 18, 2018, 07:24:44 pm »

It stops now. Theres a difference in saying player X had a bad game vs player Y is selfish. Keep that trash off this board.

The players read it too. I just put all the blame on the coaches.

Hear! Hear!  There's not a player on this team not doing his best.  I've never understood why fans trash our own players.

Theres just no reason for it. We don’t know what those kids are thinking. Just need to let up on singling out players and hammering them. They know they arent playing well. Not a damn one of them would trade a win for a 30 point game. Bash the coach. He’s fair game. Just need to ease up a bit on the players.

In my opinion if a player seems selfish or lazy it has to go back to lack of a scheme. It’s all on the coach.

If that is all it takes to be considered player bashing, half the mmqb board would be categorized as bashing

I havent been in mmqb. If I see it I’ll address it. It’s basketball season and I’ve seen some stuff about the players that isn’t necessary. Its never ok to call out players even if its missed or overlooked by moderators.

I give him 1 year to see what he can do with his incoming class.  Supposed to be some talented guys.  If he can win some road games next season, he will be off the hook.  But, I don't expect any miracles this year.

If he crashes and burns this season its time for him to go. Thats my opinion. We can’t keep letting recruiting classes hold us hostage.

He's already crashed and burned it for me.  His teams look lifeless and unprepared on the road.  Whatever it is, may it be strictly mental or simply fatigue from his fastest 40 ways, his whole history at Arkansas has been 1 road loss after another.   I certainly don't see that changing this year.  Frankly, I want to be proven wrong, and I want him to do it.  If he doesn't turn a corner, and I mean consistent top 25 play the entire year with the next group of guys, he's toast.  There's a very good chance that Mike Anderson is better than the alternative.  You just have to weight the variables.  If he lays a goose egg next year, we will know without a doubt to look elsewhere for leadership.

The coach shouldn’t be allowed to be bashed either, but it is what it is. The dummies that think a coach who has never had a losing season can’t  coach are just idiotic and clearly have an agenda. I’ve seen the program at it’s lowest point and it is clearly on an uptick. MA isn’t going anywhere so folks may as well accept it or Go cheer on BB.

The coaches are paid to perform and the fans pay to watch. That alone makes the coach fair game. I agree Mike probably won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. He’ll do just enough to get by. Hopefully one of those years we can catch lightning in a bottle and make a run, but I don’t expect consistent results.

And I am SO sick of hearing the talking points “never had a losing leason” and “best coach since Nolan”.

There is a big difference in "Player X is a selfish ball-hawg who only cares about his stats" vs. "Player X needs to distribute the ball more and find the open guy."
....  even if the two statements are mutually inclusive.

Looks like you should start your own board or complain to the moderators. I don’t disagree that bashing players is a bad idea, but what is the definition of “bashing”?  Saying “player x made a stupid turnover” or “player y needs to work on his ball handling” or “player z needs to play more/less”  is just an observation. You can proclaim that this or that “stops now”, but you have no enforcement mechanism. I post what I want, and unless you are the moderator, you can’t dictate the contents.
Uh, he is the moderator, sir.

Got what? Who is Bucko? Had I known the guy is the moderator, I would not have said he “has no enforcement mechanism.”  Not being much of a regular, I don’t know who is or is not a moderator. Regardless, I’m sure he can speak for himself without the assistant hall monitor chiming in. Give my regards to “Bucko”.

Reading is fundamental. Under the name "PharmacistHog" is the title "Global Moderator".

BTW, Pharm, bravissimo on cleaning up the nonsense on here.

Reading is indeed fundamental. Had you read my comments, you would understand. Not being a regular, I don’t check anyone’s profile before responding to them. The tone of his post was clearly that of a moderator or an overzealous participant. Had he said “As the global moderator, I demand that the player bashing stop”, it would have been clear to anyone (regular or not) that his demand is supported by an enforcement mechanism. Perhaps I am supposed to know his handle is that of a global moderator, but his power and notoriety escaped me. Ultimately, it’s no big deal. I will post according to the rules as I understand them and if banned, I’ll go back to talking to myself. It’s all good.

May I ask if you primarily use the mobile version of this site?

Hear! Hear!  There's not a player on this team not doing his best.  I've never understood why fans trash our own players.

I just wish for the remainder of the season folks would shut up.  Let these players AND the coach do their jobs best they can.  I hope the players don't read and believe all the crap that is thrown on here but I'm sure some do.  But if they don't have all this interference I would love to see what they can do the rest of this month.  Just let em get back to work, folks.  Leave the hate talk elsewhere.  I get fair criticism of team play, but don't get personal.  No need.

The A&M game thread was disgraceful. Nothing but player bashing and whining by a large number of posters. I think the mods should go back and read it if they haven’t. Bunch of people should have been reprimanded if you’re serious about not bashing the players.

Not only was the A&M thread disgraceful but most of the threads on Jump Ball have become so as well. Player bashing should never be allowed!

So true.  Hogville has now become just a place to come bash the coach and the players, too.  I really thought the moderator meant it when he wrote, "No player bashing."  But the bashing is now worse than I've ever seen it.  I know people are angry about losing, but bashing our own players should be out of bounds.  Why is there no enforcement of this rule?
