    I don't care as long as he's not obviously joking with and favoring one team over the other. Played a local c team one time and the ump had had a few and thought they'd pick him up if he joked around with them enough I guess. Is pretty sick of it by the second inning. The beating we were talking probably didn't help.

    Back and forth banter is normal in leagues around here. I don't see any big deal with it but I have seen tons of butt hurt over it as well. I guess it all depends on the person

    IMO, the only one on the field who can talk as much **** as they want, is the pitcher

    My opinion is you shut up and play the game............. My fun comes from winning and playing well and not from listening to morons talk ****.

    About to tell our own pitcher to quiet down and let the bat/glove speak for itself. The last few games have become a hostile environment from him yackin' his jaws. Good grief.

    Lots of guys here know that keeping their mouth shut, decreases the **** talking and animosity on the field.......You wouldn't know anything about keeping your mouth shut though.

    No having fun while playing softball. You're here to win, not enjoy yourself

    If the other teams get cranky then they're not mentally tough. Can't let anyone talk you out of your game. Unless he's getting personal with the other team, i.e. crossing the line, let him talk, imo.

    I don't mind getting on the opposing teams nerves. It started out that way and it worked to our advantage. Lately it's been "crossing the line" stuff. Benches cleared last week and mouthy Dave almost almost got destroyed by a big ol bubba on the other team. Why he didn't get tossed is beyond me.

    A couple heckles here and there is fine, but it starts to get annoying for everyone after a while. I doubt the team with the heckling pitcher actually enjoys it, at least, mine wouldn't, the ump probably doesn't unless he's bored out of his mind, and the team receiving it likely doesn't thoroughly enjoy it, either.

    If you need to heckle constantly, you're likely somewhat insecure about your own ability, or you're just a cocky douche...

    Same can be said for people that get bent out of shape about talking. Best way to shut someone up is to win.
