(18) Do not start threads or make posts or reps that make serious allegations about a player that can not be substantiated with independent and cast-iron evidence..
Treat this as an individual case, on it's own individual merits.
How does raising the "suspicions" about a player potentially having feigned an injury during a tennis match equate to the same as making an "allegation" that he/she did?
I have toned down my banter, as my humor is dry and some posters around here may misconstrue it as offensive and therefore that makes what I've said go against the rules. However, in this instance, with regard the rules that have been set, I have not done anything wrong and I firmly believe you're using the fact I do have previous infractions to my name as something against me.
I rose "suspicion" I never made a direct alleation. Read the title, Nadal feigning injury; bla bla bla ... THEORIES inside.
Is this an allegation or bringing up a sense of suspicion and doubt? Read it in any context you like, you cannot prove by the words used that what I put in either my title or my OP that I was making a direct or indirect allegation.
It is natural to cast doubt on tennis players and the legitamacy of their injuries; commentators, pundits and player's themselves do it.... they aren't sued, as these are suspicions, being skeptical and raising awareness of disingenuous antics. They are NOT allegations, which is what is clearly stated as being what is against the rules.
