FTR I have zero problem with smack talking the other players, EXCEPT after you get burnt, abused, and run over. Then stfu and focus on not repeating the same mistakes.
I have a HUGE problem with smack talking refs or coaches. The game is hard enough without your disrespectful attitude resulting in more bias from the refs. Coaches are ALWAYS going to tell the refs what you said too, which in turn, puts your team under a microscope.
Personally, I wish everyone would stfu on the field and just focus on playing but I know that’s not gonna happen. I much prefer you let your pads do the talking but whatever.
