Name calling to put an opponent of his/her game. Will it die?
Usually has maximum effect if said in a sinister way. Not always an effective way to stop you're opponent playing better than you for the rest of the game. I was never a big talker and don't have first hand accounts to share but always loved listening to a lot of players taunts used to help (what they thought), win the grand final. My impression was that people only used it when they were sure their opponent was highly strung/sensitive. The recent uproar (Ape calling......not Eddie, as he was way out of line) indicates that checky players/spectators could be in a lot of trouble if they unwittingly call their opposing player 'c... sucker'/'pill.. biter' and he/she is actually gay. The old favourite in my day (40 yrs ago) was 'your mothers a whore' and the umpire 'white maggot'.
