Funny coming from a kid with a Kevin Durant username followed by an avatar of Kevin Durant. Yes you sure have a life over there.

Atleast you're consistent with stupid remarks. Gotta give you GOLD for that.

Well, all of them don't have to now.....

Haha, what a dumb strategy. It would be a tainted medal IMO.

Why isn't it a one game elimination tourney like tennis?

they still throw matches.

they will lose if they think it makes the path easier for a teammate to win.

they like to play the odds on stylistic matchups.

this is especially true when they hit eachother in tourneys.

The disqualification is retarded.

No one disqualified the spurs when tim duncan or parker sat on the bench for the last game of the NBA season.

No one disqualified any teams in the world cup when those teams already qualified in the group stages

Its strategy paying for seeding.

Sounds like they need to restructure the tournament to stop people from losing on purpose.
