You're not the only one, not by a long shot. But to be fair, if you want to play in that type of game, the rules need to be set out beforehand, so that in the end, that type of game is played. We can't blame players for playing what they want to play. Therefore it's up to the game organizers to make sure the game ends up being what it's intended to be. Just having a "pump" game will not produce the game that you and I (and many others) prefer. It will however be a little better than regular open play.
