He's not a troll at all.
Trolling is when a poster stays on ONE thing and never lets it die.
Example: "The head coach sux!"
Next post from that poster: "Our HC is awful, that none of you see this...it's sad."
Next next post: "LOL. Yeah, well if we had a better HC we'd be unstoppable. The guy is garbage. Wake up and smell the coffee."
And those posts, they're in almost EVERY thread...not just a "Our HC Sux" thread. They take their pet project, coach bashing, and inject it into every single thread they can. Baiting others into arguments over it.
THAT is trolling.
Another form of trolling is when somebody makes personal attacks with no real contribution to the discussion of ideas about the thread's topics.
Badboy isn't trolling. He's giving his opinions, he's backing it up with numbers, etc. That's not trolling. He's engaging in the conversation and staying within the framework of the thread topic.
Nothing personal from me to you or anything...I'm just letting you know in case you are unsure of what trolling is and isn't.
