To cheat or not to cheat, that is the question.

I distinctly remember a player friend of mine holding my racquet down in the line up as I spun out…. I distinctly remember a top female player saying that you DO have to cheat to win, because others are cheating, YOU should. Take advantage of poor umpiring.

I’d like to say that I’ve spent very little energy on cheating. I’ve preferred more of a gentleman’s game and I’ve been successful at it.

Is cheating ok? When the umpires can’t see, are you cheating? I say that those who are thinking of cheating often, aren’t thinking about winning. They’re playing a defensive game.

In Chapter 6 of my new book, Champion: the Guide to Becoming a Great Polocrosse Player, I delve deeper into this topic which I feel strongly about.
