What Others Say:
“While I have played with Tad before and found him to be good guy - today he appeared to be something completely different. We had a lot of distractions from the adjacent court which had a family with a couple of very young girls playing (ages about 6-8). Their balls very constantly coming into our court. But I was disturbed by Tad's use of profanity on them along with uttering the "F" word multiple times. I then took him aside and privately told him that what he was doing was wrong and she should tone down his rhetoric. I found his behaviour especially unforgivable since I have young children of my own. Instead of settling down, Tad informed me that he was quitting after a next few games. This was despite the fact that the family with the young girls decided to leave. Tad you should be ashamed of your behaviour today. You mentioned that you have kids of your own. I do not think you would use the kind of language in front of them that you used today. I can understand why you got distracted. I was distracted too. But the courst over here are PUBLIC courts and they are used by all kinds of people - including kids who cannot control their shots. Learn to live with that. Also I question your integrity. After agreeing that we will declare this match with myself being the winner since you decided to quit, you conveniently decided to close this match as cancelled. SHAME ON YOU TAD. You mentioned in the end that I am not your father and should not comment on your behavior. Well I am indeed not your father but I will not tolerate such behaviour in my presence - regardless of who it is. I find you to be a boorish complainer. Complaining about the balls (as in the previous game), complaining about the visibility, complaining about the court, etc. I think you take this game way too seriously - and you should since you are just an average recreational player like myself and many others on one- click. We are through Tad. If you man enough to apologize for your behavior - you know who I am and how to reach me. ”
“Yesterday the balls were somewhat defective and affected Tad's power game. Normally Tad is a very tough with a very agressive game. I always enjoy playing Tad and love to play Tad again. ”
