Foul play, and it taints the players guilty of it.
      I am not any SYS fan, but recognize the pressure is intense to unbearable. Fault there lies with the umpire and ITTF system. Imagine a baseball ump changing a strike to a ball because the batter threw a fit. Never. You will get ejected in baseball for arguung balls and strikes. Simple to use the same in TT. Players can ask ump for a call quickly. If they continue arguing warning/point/set/match penalty. Hey Presto! Situation like with SYS will never happen again.

      Yes. People make mistakes and can do ugly things, especially under pressure. Of this I (“of all people”) am highly aware.

      But people can also bounce back, show improvement — even if only by acknowledgement.

      I have seen no such redeeming feats from SYS. Quite the contrary. And that’s what I’m calling out.

      I agree. SYS and WMY should have been penalized immediately by the umpires. But they weren't, and though the umpires share part of the blame for that they themselves are still the prime culprits, undeniably and nonrepudiably responsible for their own misbehaviour.
