Do you believe using million-dollar recovery techniques that aren't illegal but are unfair equals to cheating?
Just bcos sth is unfair doesn't make it cheating, is it?
Some players fly private jet from continents to continents, they can sleep in bed, eat healthy meals and rest quietly when flying in an efficient flight. Others can only afford economy seat, maybe sitting next to crying baby the whole time, unable to sleep, and can't stretch his legs for a long flight with stopovers. Does it make it fair just because low rank player has no resources bcos he is poor? Plus he has no coach or physios, all bcos he is not rich. That's professional sports, it is not an equal playing ground no matter how you see it. But it doesn't really make it unfair, bcos it is up to the players to decide on whether he wants to participate even if he has not enough resources to compete with the wealthy player.
(Just to be clear, my statement is straightly regard to the quote of "unfair = cheating". I'm not either approve or condemn using the machine).
