In response to hedleylamarr's comment:
How can I be toasted when you refuse to abide by the rules of arguing? It's you who are backing out of this. You made a statement, I challenged it, then you said, "I will prove it, but only AFTER you prove XYZ"[/QUOTE]
Of course, you challenge it, yet "it" was NOT what I said. It was something you fabricated.
Why should I have obligation to prove something not I said but you made up out of thin air?
Are you going to prove what I said what you claimed I said?
Not how it works........... [/quote]
Then how does it work? that you fabricate something as what I said and I have to prove it?
Is that your protocol of arguing?
so, the next step will be - you prove your statement:
Well, as if Lakers fans care whether it's l.a. Lakers, Inglewood Lakers or Minn. Lakers.
Yep, in the context of your statement
"Fierce, I'll bet you a dollar that in the 80's majic here still called them the Los Angeles Lakers, even though they resided in Inglewood (which is a dump, btw). Yep, MN won 5 titles, and Inglewood won 6 titles, so the LOS ANGELES Lakers have really only won five!!".
Do you deny that "Well, as if Lakers fans care whether it's l.a. Lakers, Inglewood Lakers or Minn. Lakers." was a response to the context of your statement? i.e. the titles won by the Lakers from various places? yes or no?
Is that what you want me to prove? I bet you dare not answer this...
Failure to prove this statement is surrender. I asked you very nicely to prove it before you asked me for anything. If you choose not to be civil, you lose.[/QUOTE]
OK, then failure to prove that your claim "YOU said lakers fans would still follow the team even they didn't play in LA. " is surrender. And failure to prove that
""So, lakers fans don't care if the lakers reside in LA, Inglewood, MN or any other venue? IN YOUR OPINION!!! "
is also surrender. Glad that you set up such a great rule...
And any "you are toast, you can't get out of it, not even close" comments shall also implicate your surrender.
Your failure to prove you said what I said is, by your own rule, surrender.
My challenge, my rules. We abided by yours when you made the challenge - now we will abide by mine - or don't I don't really care - but either prove your statement, or I win!!
That's really funny.
1) your rules? you don't abide by your own rule, so you admit that you lose. Your own rule is that you can't even prove that I said X. Now you demand me to prove X?
2) You abide by my rule when I made the challenge? You mean claiming A=>B != !A=>!B is MY rule? I don't have the monopoly of using logic. It's out there for everyone.
So either prove that
i) I said lakers fans would still follow the team even they didn't play in LA, and
ii) I stated the opinion that lakers fans don't care if the lakers reside in LA, Inglewood, MN or any other venue,
Your rule. Of course, you can tell me that you set up the rule but you don't abide by it...
