Didn't See That One Coming

Tonight someone complained about a handicap, no big deal right?

Except they were complaining about their opponent being OVER ranked. That's right, this guy actually said about his opposition..."He's no 6! That guy I played really should be a 4".

Now, I'm not naive and will acknowledge there is a possibility a player may try to downplay their own performance by diluting his opponent's game, but I don't think that was the case this particular time. (And no, I don't believe they are friends or relatives.)

I simply think he was genuinely surprised by the rankings and made a non-formal complaint to help the guy out. Good sportsmanship or not, hearing it just made me laugh and want to mention it in my blog.
