The point is that the OP was asking for advice on what to do when playing longer in hotter conditions than he's used to.
The answer is not "a couple grams of BCAAs, 3 grams of sugar, electrolytes, and a multivitamin." He doesn't need "energy," he needs fuel and liquids. Gatorade and similar drinks - those that provide electrolytes and sugars - are ideally suited for his situation. He doesn't need to spend $20 on something with effectively no actual calories and a ton of vitamins and minerals.
If you play by the rules some might consider you a *. If that's a problem then, by all means, give away as many points as necessary for their approval
