Sorry, I must of failed to see how playing up or vs older players is ever a problem for a competitive 18 yo."So what"?? Therein lies the problem today. Honesty and integrity are no longer valued. Yes, at 18 players do play against older players and even old men, in college, in pros, semi pros, pick up leagues etc etc etc. That is not the point. If you don't understand then you are part of the problem.
