The Definition of Hypocrisy

Posted June 25, 2013

I skipped yardbarker last night because I was tired (been dealing with a
"sick" dog and work and my mind just wasn't into it) yet I have to
admit that I was somewhat disappointed that the post about racism was taken
down (not surprised but I did not get to see the latest lies typed about me if
there were any and I looked forward to defending them easily, just like
usual). I feel no shame in what I typed on that post because all I did was
truthfully defend myself against lies and turn that back towards a barker
who called two players by their ethnicity instead of by their names.

This isn't the point I typed this to discuss though. I typed this to ask
everyone what is the true definition of hypocrisy? I will give you
a few examples instead of the actual definition.


1. Telling people they are below you and accusing them of dragging a site down when in the past they have down the same things they are (wrongfully and over aggressively) accusing you of and also comfortably slipping right
back into that mode when things don't go the way they state they would.

2. Willing to give a coach years of mistakes while openly backing him yet
questioning a rookie coach at EVERY move or NON move and pretty much doing this from day one of the new coach's hire. To piggyback on this another example would be giving one 4-12 team they back props for just about EVERY move (even if that move was prompted by a bad move) while going out their way to try and find faults with every move "their" other 4-12 team makes (and not letting the truth stop them when doing this at times). Although this may fall more into a double set of standards instead of hypocrisy I feel it fits in this case but unlike other barkers on here I will admit when I'm wrong so you be the judge.


3. Typing up a post questioning yardbarker about deleting a post
that yardbarker deemed inappropriate on the same night they blocked a
barker for having opposing views and disagreeing with them.


I truthfully don't expect this to last very long but I do hope yardbarker leaves this alone. I typed no lies here. I attacked no one and typed only the truth. It's what I do here and I do it cleanly (much cleaner than the barker who once accused me and  many of us of dragging this site down).
