I was plenty used to relying and being disappointed back when I'd backshoot an individual with one shot and they'd go scurrying off to some other corner of the field. It adds a bit more frustration when you just wasted $.40 on an individual. That being said, it's good to see that it's still the majority of folks who will call themselves out. It's just not as big of a margin that most people would expect.

Unfortunately, at every big game I've gone to, players are forbidden from transmitting on, or listening to the ref's channels. Also, at 100yards it can be damn hard to have clear evidence of a break on someone. Personally, I rely on the eliminated player and sometimes, their reactions make it all worthwhile.
