Yeah I agree. We can certainly let them know about it though.

I had that situation a couple weeks back. A really good player on the other team got into it with a guy on our team who has only been playing for 3 years. The guys going on and on about how my teammate's a bum and he stinks, blah, blah, blah. I've heard enough, so I skate over to their bench and ask him what pro team is he on or has he ever been on. I reminded him that he's in the same over 40 beer league as the rest of us. Ooh, your good vs. a bunch of older guys half of which are out of shape/overweight. I've never seen someone get so angry so quickly

Moral of the story. Unless you played Junior A, D-I college, minors, or pros you have no reason to think you are anything other than a guy having fun out there. To poke fun at an opponents abilities in a league you play in is poking fun at yourself. That's your competition. It's all relative.
