This is the attitude which has turned me off of fighting in the SCA more
than anything else (well maybe the White Belt force field & free knee shot
Believe it or not there are a lot of fighters who are not in it "just to win"
that attitude tends to make for rhino-hiding, questionable blows, and the
whole host of unchivalric behaivior that occurs too often in the society.

The society I joined had ppl that fought for honor, glory, and to do
curtosy to the people who's favor they held. Now, I guess winning is all
that counts.

Tripe. Egregious tripe. This is not the Society of bashing people with
rattan, it is about a hell of a lot more than just whether some stupid
stick jock bubba wants to win.
