DO you think it would be a good idea for torurnaments and to play for 3rd place, semi final 1 loser vs semi final 2 loser? i think it would make the game much funner, more competitive and better for the game itself?

what you guys think?

it would just be humiliating I think.

This idea reminds me of the "jump to conclusions mat" from Office Space. Not good. Also, "funner" is not a word.

I think points and prize money would get confusing, and if it was me i wouldnt want to be remembered as "3rd place" in a tournament instead of semi finalist

people will always remember the winner,the one who comes first and the loser not the third player or semifinalist

Im totally against it. More matches in a heavy callendar for the players to fight for a humillating place

I think people should stop f**king around with the sport and leave it like it is

I think it would be fine for recreational tournaments, but I don't think anyone would care about the outcome at the Pro level.

Im pretty sure the pros would care if they install it as points and money are in stake.

funner isn't a word.

No it defeats the purpose of getting trophies at all, it should only go to 1st and 2nd, no 3rd or 4th like there are at the olympics.

"Funner" is a word that a 5th grader with ADD would use

Do you think it'd be cool if the losers of the eastern and western conference finals would play another 7-game series to see who gets third in NBA...ratings would be horrible.

You'd see many athletes withdrawing from this third place contest, to the point it wouldn't be worth it.

If you're not first you're last.

i wouldnt use the same words but i have the general opinion....leave the sport the way it is...i dont follow doubles much but are they still doing that stupid 5 game set thing?

the sport is fine the way it is, the tours just need to not be so strict as to mandatory tournaments/etc....
