Sounds to me like you are talking about tennis from the McEnroe years. They don't berate the officials any more. Serena got DQed in the US Open Final a few years back when she lost it. They have a replay system to check the line calls now to cut back on the arguing. I'd love to see boxing get a little more involved with a replay system in some cases.
Nowadays players are pretty good to the fans. Top players sigh autographs on the way off the court all the time, even after a tough loss.
I'm just trying to get something else cooking if people are interested. I play all the time. It's good for the body and the mind. Even old timers like yourself can play at a high level. I'd be happy to hit a few balls with you Randy if you ever get to Chicago. Tell Gerry Cooney I said hello!
I do get to Chicago a few times a year, as one of my daughters lives there with her hubby & two kids.
