Question about Fans....

Why is it when that fans are always calling their own opinions, and others they are debating with, "ametuer?"

It's something thats always bothered me. Yes, we are not being paid to analyze/debate the game of baseball. Yes everyone is at a different intelligence level with game.

I mean I actually hate GM bashing (except for Hendry). I stopped it once I started talking to people inside baseball, which was like 2 days ago. But we can not deny how stupid some GMs may act towards certain players, or the kind of money spent on mediocre players.

I see it way too much lately. We are allowed to debate without being told that our opinions can't hold water compared to an "expert." "Experts" in sports are everywhere, few of them are as good as they think they are. Considering that many fans on message boards like myself still have legit shots to get into baseball in some way/shape/form, I actually get a little offended. It's a lame thing to say, and it's usually said when the offending party has nothing to say in a debate (they lost).
