“If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying hard enough” — made famous by former Chicago Cubs first basemen, Mark Grace
I don't remember him saying that but I've read a few articles on his statement and I didn't find anything that suggested he actually advocated cheating however he played in an era when almost every home run crushing MLB was "cheating."
What actually are the ethical standards of sports. If you are a line-man you hold on every single play and you leave it up to the ref to call it. Do you see those guys asking for a touchdown to be called back....no. When an NBA player fouls a shooter and it's a miss....they don't go to the ref and say yep, I got him. Running backs don't stop running until they hear a whistle. Doesn't matter if they know their knee was down or if they stepped out of bounds. And what about an outfielder or receiver who "knows" the ball skipped before they caught it.
It's kind of interesting that someone can point to the examples above and say this one's OK, that's not. "Ethically" they are all wrong.
Sadly the USPSA rule books says if the score is signed by the shooter and RO it's unequivocal.
Maybe it's to take another look at the use of video review after all.
If somebody can prove "the shooter" "knowingly" accepted a score he knew was wrong. Ie, he was witnessed to have checked his shot coach and "THEN" signed the score sheet. He is in fact a cheat and should be banned from the sport. That is 100% unsportsmanlike conduct.
If there is evidence he became aware of the obvious error during the match or arbitration period and he failed to notify the RM, he should be DQ'd from that match for unsportsmanlike conduct.
But people get away with this stuff because nobody does anything about it.
I like to rewatch election night 2016 coverage and I want to marry a conservative black girl who likes to shoot.
