The thing about competitors.
It’s one thing to want to win, or beat others at their best, in an even match where nobody has advantages over the other in the match.
It’s another thing altogether to want to win, to the point you need to talk shit, cheat, and whatever else to get an edge and win.
If a guy trains harder, smarter, has genetic gifts, those are not the advantages I’m talking about…
I’m talking about the bullshit that’s spewed about winning at all costs, fucking people over, including your own family sort of culture that seems to be praised. The sort of culture that tells you, it’s about sacrifice and that time you should be spending with your son or wife should be spent training. That money you make working the side job should be spent on gear. That if you could get an edge and have a judge on your side, you should (Arnold).
It’s bullshit. Compared to the people who follow the rules and otherwise put the same effort in… Two types of winners, both don’t deserve praise.
