ok so i know that this is well documented but I was just on the throwdowns page and I clicked on three separate throwdowns and all of them were just stupid topics by someone looking for an easy win. For example, I saw one titled, "the spurs are the best team in the nba" or "omar vizquel is a Hall of Famer." these two topics are so obviously true its disgusting. the users who post these topics are simply looking to pad their stats so they can be on the leaderboard. if you are going to post a throwdown do so for the sake of debating an honest topic civilly with another sports fan such as yourself.
also, these are not designed to dissolve into worthless shouting matches full of profanity (blanked out) and personal insults. Everyone is entitled to his opinion, and it is not your place to decide whether someone else is right or not. Its their opinion and you can't tell anyone whether they are right or wrong. you can debate them or point out errors in their facts or stats, but an opinion is just that. An opinion.
