There is an old saying...'many a true word is said in jest'. I'm sure all of us can align ourselves and others to these 4 characters!

Hey Greg, why don't you grab one of the interviews that has been done on OOAK with a pro and put the script into one of your vids. I think it'd be very entertaining!

Great stuff Greg! :lol: :lol: :lol:

It would be interesting to know which one of these characters we most closely relate to.... I find myself relating to comments from most of them. :oops:

I could do that sometime, if Alex and the person who did the interviewing didn't mind. If it's OK, does anyone have a preference?

Cheers,
Greg

I don't think you could go far wrong with the Joo! interview ;)

Brilliant! I'll put it in my blog tomorrow morning.
Here's my recent blog on cheating, "Table Tennis Boosting and Why Cheating is Rampant in Our Sport," which links to one of my blogs on hidden serves:

I've read your post on this matter several times Larry.

The comment from the official that your rule change would make cheating legal is bizarre.
Any rule change to allow something new, could be 'making cheating legal'.

The point of rules in sports is to provide parameters for play and a level field for all.

I read Larry's article as well, and to me it is well reasoned and makes sense. It's making the best of a bad situation. The current situation makes for an unlevel playing field, for those who choose to stick strictly to the rules, while Larry's suggestion levels the playing field again.

Do people really boost (the already factory-boosted) Tensors and Tenergy? I thought it was people who used Hurricane who boosted - some people claim the ALL the top players who use Hurricane boost, that it's unusable otherwise.

When did Mizutani decide to play in tournaments again? He IS playing these days. I watched him in person. :lol:
