  1. Hi John,
    thanks for an interesting article, and really standing up for sportsmanship…quite many amusing twists on top of it.

    And good you mentioned the details and the names of the erring parties, often too rare in this culture. And got the thing published not only in your blog but also in newspapers, even better.

    Nice pics as usual.
