It's a competition between two teams. The team that plays better generally wins. And when that doesn't happen, it's because one team didn't put distance between they and the other team enough to keep from coming down to unlucky bounces.
I'm not arguing to be consistent. This is, has and always will be my outlook on sports. Luck is a part of it, but talent and production is and will always be the most important aspect. Always. Regardless of sport.
If it comes down to a 50/50 ball, then a team didn't execute enough to leave it out of the hands of fate. It's that same reason I don't like to pass off blame to refs or umpires, because if you let it come down to a blown call or two by an official, then you likely are conveniently forgetting all the mistakes by your own team or players that let it come down to that.
I'm not doing anything to stay consistent. This is how I've always felt.
