I shot archery using standard target points so by this definition I guess I did not follow these rules. Oh, the Olympic coach set up my bow, so was he too guilty by complicity?

Like every other sport, players are trained to control their temper and be good sportsmen, yet occasionally someone loses his cool and EVERY time the first thing he does is throw down his foil and go for his opponent with his fists—a foil is specifically designed NOT to inflict damage and if your intention is to hurt someone a bare hand is much more effective.

A Pop Tart bitten in to an “L” shape?
