While I agree there is bad behavior, my post was about the right amount of intensity in a match. My son's opponent did not behave badly. He was just so intense on every point, that I felt when he needed to reach for some emotional reserve, it wasn't there. No where to go but down. I think it's a strategic mistake.
I actually have to coach my son to let some emotions out to help him at critical points. If his opponent was my son, I'd coach him to tone it down so he would have some emotional reserves in a long, tough match.
