I'm in a few leagues where there are some guys that talk a lot of smack, if I know the guy I may join in just for the fun of it.

However, if I don't know the guy and he's talking smack at me....I always fall back on the theory that there are two types of people: talkers and doers and if he's talking he likely ain't much for doing.

I will always ignore the unknown talkers because - as you point out - there's usually an agenda and I generally have neither the time nor inclination to engage them.

If you're actually able to knock guys off their game by talking smack during the draft, I gotta figure you're playing with a bunch of amateurs.
