Behaviour during tournaments.

Postby Sub7 » 16 Dec 2014, 19:43

Hi guys,

I have watched a match of two female players on youtube. What I found very disturbing was the shouting on other tables in the background. I can appreciate players who play with passion but the outbursts I hear are over the top and intimidating for their opponents.

I consider Subbuteo to be in the same league as darts and snooker. An indoor sport that should be played with self control and sportsmanship. Etiquette and decent behaviour shoul be prominent I think.

I have seen an interview with a Dutch player some time ago. He said that other players say that his weak point is that he is too decent during a match. It seems that in Professional leagues players have hidden dirty tricks to disturb their opponents which are hard to notice by a referee.

How do you guys think about that? Should excessive outbursts be banned during a subbuteo match?

Regards

I can be guilty of this, but so can the one of the other guys I play with.
Funnily enough, the thing that makes me madder is when people just don't react after they score against you - and yes, I'm looking at you, Barrychuckle :D
I would actually PREFER it if he shouted GET IN MY SON! but he usually just grunts like he expected to put one past me ... :mad:

Sub7, you often mix Classic Subbuteo and Table Top football, the first is a game, the second one is a Sport - thats an important difference. If you would have more experience in playing and attending tournaments you would know that also sportmanship is very different in these two worlds, the spirit of the game is completely different.
You need more experience, not just in :guiness: :guiness:

"Passion" is a word often used to excuse poor sportsmanship.

In " Old Subbuteo " tournaments you dont get much in the way of bad behaviour Sub7. Its very sporting and the atmosphere is good. There are odd exceptions. I played against a young chap under the age of 12 in Maidenhead and his approach left a bit to be desired. But he was only a kid so allowances must be made. I often feel a bit sheepish ( embarrassed ) when I score against people. But that happens so rarely in tournaments that its not really a problem. The FISTF game is totally different however and bad manners seem to be de riguer, I gather.
