As far as I am concerned, if there are bad tackles during the game, and:
* the player making the bad tackle apologises, and the player on the receiving end accepts the apology, the game was played in good spirits. * the player making the bad tackle does not apologise, or the player on the receiving end does not accept the apology, and the game degenerates into petulance, arguments, or further bad tackles, or ill-feeling which continues beyond the game, it is unacceptable.
I received a message from the other player, Mark Li, and we exchanged a couple more. He's over it. Hopefully, Srini is as well.
However, the point I made about bad tackles remains. I will follow up later.
Both Srini and Mark informed me that after the tackle, Srini said "Common man!". Srini said he was chiding himself for missing the ball, Mark thought he was accusing him of exaggerating the impact. It seems clear to me that it started as a misunderstanding. I know it's hard, but we should keep our heads, and not overreact to incidents during the game.
No one with anything to say about the game itself?
