    Yes. Good point about parties. Nobody likes a liar/thief....or a hyper-competitive freak who will cheat to win.

    I told both my sons when they were just starting with foam balls that fair play leads to more ladies and lots of drinks. Priorities, people. Priorities.

    If I see the ball out, I call it, I don't hesitate even on very close balls. I have missed a few but they were honest mistakes, I've never intentionally hooked anyone. Now in dual matches and tournaments it's another story... I've seen it get really ugly, one guy makes a bad call then the other guy retaliates with a bad call and tempers catch fire.

    I'm sure calling everything as honestly as possible can put me at a disadvantage. It has everything to do with a person's character in my opinion. Honest people are going to be honest in all situations.

    When I play, I'll usually concede the close calls to my opponent, especially if I can barely get a racquet on it. I just hope that the same courtesy will be extended to me. It almost always works out. Occasionally my opponent has corrected me, or we play the point over.
