    Just look to tennis. How often do you see tennis players get all ticked off about the electronic fault calls?

    I once saw John McEnroe get ticked off at a little girl holding a puppy.

    I have seen tennis players continue to gripe several times even after the replay shows they were wrong.

    To be fair, tennis was more fun with personalities like McEnroe, Connors, Becker, Agassi and so on. Men's tennis today=sterile...

    True, but the players, outside of Nadal (on the men's side), don't have personalities either...either way, in or out on serves or shots in tennis is different from calling balls and strikes. The lines don't change in tennis.

    What would be funnier is seeing PInella throw the computer when he got a call he didn't like.
