snow me where in the rules it says if you touch the net you must admit it to the umpire?
Hint: It doesn't
That's the umpires job
You mustn't, but its disgusting. There's a thing called fair play you know.
Also it's not illegal for 90 year old man to date 18 year old but it's also disgusting.
It was umpire job yes, but they are not robots, they can't be right at 100%. That's why he should have stepped up and admit he's done it. Nothing more or less than a FAIR PLAY.
