Poll: Which do you hate?

Post by Sirrip » Fri Jul 23, 2010 9:45 pm

"Don't hate the player, hate the game".... or as some would say, "Hate the player, hate not the game"

I'd vote, but I don't have the foggiest idea what the question is, let alone the answer :roll:

Hate the game or the player? Neither. Hate is for losers.

whoever dreamed up this poll.

Edited for grammar, though I was tempted to spell it grammer.

To rephrase it for some of you:

Is our current situation the result of individuals not paying their contractual debts or is it the result of the system that encouraged them to take on debts that were known to be unpayable.

Or for Ice-T fans:
Don't hate the player, hate the game
N****, sharpen your aim
Every baller on the streets is searchin' fortune and fame
Some come up, some get done up, except the twist
If you out for mega cheddar, you got to go high risk
Not the boglehead philosophy.
[Gotta give a nod to the cheddar thread currently running.]

This explanation is by far better than the poll. I am sorely tempted to use that Ice-T line on risk as my signature. Thanks for elevating the discourse, SS.

The problem is its not just two things player/game.

There are also the players that came up with the game
and the players that looked the other way while the game
was going on.

Anyone can try to get over on a game however, there's
supposed to be a referee to keep folks honest.
(we lost the referee's)


Thanks
