I agree totally. For those who disagree, find me a quote from an opponent along the lines of, "Man I feel ripped off. I would have preferred to stay out there longer, risking possible injury or defeat, just so I can get the satisfaction of a real win."
Has anyone here been on the receiving end of a retirement and felt ripped off?
