If Mac didn't play on the senior tour, I'm not sure it would exist. Who the hell wants to see Todd Martin, Ferreira, Bruguera, Courier & Co play each other?
Mac is the only all time great on the senior tour & they should do everything they can to keep him playing.
It is a moral/ethical thing. If you keep encouraging it, the bad behavior will continue. There is NO reason to put up with that kind of behavior, except sometimes in the military or law enforcement where people go thru extreme pressure and snap and need to be cut some slack. Tennis is totally unimportant for someone with this behavior to be tolerated.
