XRated...With all due respect...we've played a few times and Everyone knows I take a beating Gracefully...the only thing I noticed in our last game was the Replays. I never replay anything from my opponents bro, it's kind of disrespectful. If I complete a pass, you replay it like you are in DISBELIEF that I have the ability to complete a pass on you. I can't tell if you are trying to insinuate that I faded or cheated...I don't really know..In fact, I don't know exactly WHAT you need to see in that replay. What are you looking for? (These are the things I wonder when someone hits the replay after a nice play by me). What do you possibly need to see again that you didn't see 2 seconds ago? Not just you...it's anybody I play. If someone just did something REALLY SWEET...I'll let it go because it deserves a 2nd Look but...other than that..throwing the replay at me makes me feel like you DISAGREE with my accomplishment. Sometimes you did it when you were well ahead...I was struggling...and I finally had something good go my way and BAM...REPLAY. I just find it a bit low, I suck dude...but I can complete a pass. I can occasionally have a nice drive. I can score from time to time.
I have never faded or used a cheap tactic. I think you kind of attempted to run the score up on me too. If you are already up by 21 or whatever (just an example) why would you need to call time outs late in the game to try and get the ball back? Just kick the stool from under my feet and I'll gladly turn blue in the face. I always take my losses without pitching a fit. Other than that..I really have no complaints about playing you or your style. Lose the replays...I don't really deserve it nor does anyone else. You are a real good baller, no doubt...but to make Honest Ballers feel like they "shouldn't" be able to move upfield on you is wrong. Unfortunately, this is the impression you leave by replaying our offensive moves.
Now...As far as Pinaygirl goes and your beef with the Raiders...YES the Raiders,Titans, Niners, Rams, and Fins all need to be De-Juiced IMO...I agree...but Pinaygirl has beaten me with the Falcons just as bad as with the Raiders. She's got skills bro and the fact that she's from the Bay Area almost gives her a free pass to use the Raiders and Niners..It's not her fault they were programmed with Spinach in their veins. It sucks for FINS fans who live in Miami and just want to use their Hometown Teams. Do I wish that a Pass out to Garner in the Flats could be stopped with 1-2 tackles? Yes. Do I get mad if I get burned like that? YES Is it Pinay's fault Garner doesn't go down easy? NO..In fact, going back to a comment Antbull made earlier...A Powerhouse in the hands of a SKILLED baller is different than a Powerhouse in the hands of a Non-skilled person. As we all know by now, timing of Speed Bursts, Power thrusts, Stiff arms and Spins all play an important roll in how succesful a play turns out. A skilled baller can keep Garner on his feet after 4 tackles...Ticks me off but I deal with it. The reason I don't get mad at pinaygirl is she mixes it up on both sides of the ball, Hot Routes and audibles are her biggest weapons. She has the knowledge to Dissect my D with ease...I should know, I've probably played her more than anybody...she's like 20-0 on me. but I still come back for more because I want to beat her so bad I can taste it.
I think the reaon so many people were surprised by your Question was because we all think of, or in some cases, thought of you to be an Honest Sim Baller who can accept people being better than him. Someone will always be better than you bro...as Dookiebutt, Mike_Holmgren, or XRated...you are a very good baller bro, please don't misinterpret my comments...it's just that the REPLAYS and the "feeling" of bringing people down based upon their Team selection, can come off like you are Discrediting their skills. That's the only way I can think to put it...it feels like you are discrediting our skills, even if it's superficial. You were/are part of an Honest Ballers Society where we never comment or bring down a fellow ballers skills...we just respect it. If pinaygirl, Rave or myself or any other Sim Baller turned to CHEESE...we'd all know about it. but if it ain't cheese...it's skill.
Simply put...I respect your skills..please respect mine however little they may be. Peace Dawg..I really hope everyone can clear the air on this cause I really enjoy playing all of you. If it makes you feel any better...you DID NOT use replays on me at any time other than that game. From what I've read though..it appears that you are replaying other people's accomplishments lately and perhaps you might want to stop doing it since Good Ballers take that as a sign of disrespect. I hope your hunger for being the Best doesn't replace your relationships with your fellow Simmers... :wink: 8)
"Holy Friggin Novel Batman"...I'm out!! Peace Bro
BTW: If you replay me again...I'll be forced to do this:
