Are Malphite and Blitzcrank "troll" bans?

So I just banned Malph and Blitz, 2 of my teammates called me out and said I was a troll for banning them. My reasoning was that they're both free, Malph has a ridiculous ult and Blitz is just annoying and a pain to play against. Would you guys say banning them is worth it or am I really a "troll"?

EDIT: This was in Normal Draft, not in Ranked (since ranked is disabled), so yes, you can play free week champs
EDIT2: I was first pick on blue side, so I didn't ban Ali, since I wanted to jungle him

You can't play free rotation champs in ranked if you don't own them anymore o:

Assuming this was a ranked (not sure about draft pick because I don't play it much), you cannot pick free week champs in a ranked game unless you own them.

Blitz is a good ban but Malph is not a common pick so I don't think you had to ban him

Malphite is strong enough to be ban-worthy, although he's one of the easier counterpicks in the game. Blitz I probably wouldn't ban but he does tend to punish idiots harder than most heroes.

This, though Blitz is often a worthwhile ban since it's a summoner spell every time he lands a hook if Alistar is banned/not picked.

It wasn't in ranked, ranked is disabled. Normal draft

I'd rather ali been banned than malph, but yeah those are legit bans.

I was first pick, I picked Ali jungle, so I didn't want him banned.
