Yes you certainly need to keep your head in the game, even if your opponent tries to pull these tactics, but come on, especially for MTOs, you have to wait there for several minutes and your body will naturally start relaxing, then your head goes, etc. MTOs are not the best example, since this thread deals with time between points, but if you have to wait nearly half a minute between each point, I mean your body goes into these lulls which I don't see is very fair for a player who is pumped up and doing well.
Yes, I agree. For the MTO, it's only natural that you lose concentration after a long break. I'm not justifying any of those antics. I think they are wrong and my fav players don't do that and when other does, it put them in a disadvantage. In the ideal world, you want every rule to be followed, but since the world is not ideal, I think players will just have to find a way to deal with it in the mean time, until the authority put an effort to correct the situation. I hope they will. I tend to lose my own concentration when the in-between point took too long
I think fans have the right to complain about this, I just don't see the point of whining about it in a consistent basis, it just make them sound bitter. And it's getting comedic that this whining threads spring up in all kind of form. And if those fans can't take that their own fav being called out on his antic, then they shouldn't call on others. Double standard is even more annoying than whining. But anyway, this is the first time I've ever comment on this because honestly, I'm really tired of reading the whining on and on. So why the hell am I on this thread arguing with these whiners, good question. I guess I'm bored, watching Super Bowl just to see those commercials, that's a lot of down time to kill. But I guess to not further antagonize other Fed fans, I probably should stop right here
. Good day.
