As antispinners, besides being clever, are we darkside, or lightside (a term i saw on another thread today!) or what?

To my mind, you are just grey!

But maybe with the new breed, you are in the afternoon sun, wearing factor 2 and getting darker by the day!

Pips out players at least has decided to bring their equipment out in the light so that everyone easily can tell that this is a "funny" rubber, but we are so dark so we play with equipment that looks similar to the light side equipment, but acts like dark side stuff :twisted:


That sounds the business to me speedy!
I must admit i have deceived a few. :roll:

You can only consider players to be on the dark side if you can't read the dark forces, once a given player of the darkside is in your pocket, he's not so dark, on the other hand if this guy is just better than you and he is a darksider, OOOOOOh, you are in the deepest darkest place on Earth :twisted: no, the Universe :lol:

I don't often agree with Dark but that is sort of true.

You've said yourself though that Neo-anti was hard to play against so under that definition the rubber would be darkside.

The 'what are we?' sounds very much like the Jason Bourne movies 'Look at us'/ 'What are we' - implying a bunch of crack-shot soldiers that are completely lethal.

All depends on how you look at the term 'darkside' I guess. To me it's purely the equipment, does not matter how you dress it up or use it or whether it affects the opponent or no.

Like the term 'evil'... does not matter how you dress it up, does not matter if you're scared of it or how you're affected by it, it's still 'evil'... :twisted: .... don't know what made me think of that analogy :shock: :wink:
