1. Racket measurement not needed. 50% of players do not use illegal rackets, nor would know how to obtain them, but 50% footfault.

2. I have sometimes pointed out dampener being placed improperly (outside of a match). But putting the dampener into the right position will have very little psychological impact on the player. The impact of FF enforcement is huge, as several have testified here.

3. I myself don't call FFs in a match when I am playing. I prefer to spread the gossip from the sidelines when other people are playing, to increase the awareness level. Slowly, we will see a transformation in society by non-violent means.
