“All is fair in love and war.”
I’m sure you heard the saying countless times. Go to the Big G search and you’ll see it’s apparently been around for a very long time.
So… as the topic at the moment is sport I can’t help but wonder how relevant the saying is at the moment. It seems to me as if some nations instil a warlike attitude in their competitors. Doping, cheating and the general lack sportsmanship is nothing short of astounding. And… that goes for non Olympic sport as well!
I’m not going to dwell on the topic too much longer, apart from saying there needs to be a rethink on the old saying… maybe it will be more apt if it was tweaked just a little…
“All is fair in love, sport and war!”
