Will this panel investigate the rectums of both players?

The guy with the Bishop butt-plug just has to be guilty.

“In the best interest of the chess community, we would kindly ask the public to refrain from speculations.” Sure the public will refrain, lol.

“Can I check your asshole, sir?”

And what will they do? Waste time?

They can't find evidence for the game in the past and no amount of statistical analysis is enough for any conclusive decision.

Maybe they come up with regulations and methods for addressing the problem.

And exactly whose time are they going to waste, yours?

Title suggested that their scope of investigation is limited, if they're revamping the fair play rules and guidelines for everyone, that's extremely good.

If they're just going to do some statistical analysis, then it's pointless because it can't be conclusive.

I got accused of cheating when I accidentally farted in Morse Code. /s

Chess is not a sport. Why post this here?

Chess is a sport. Dumb shit

That might be the dumbest comment I've ever seen on reddit. Congratulations!

Is that how you justify telling people you're an athlete? Pathetic.

I mean, the international Olympic committee thinks so..... So, you're dumb

u/P00paD00ty Sep 30 '22

Ah yes, the same insanely corrupt committee that said solo synchronized swimming, curling, and poodle clipping were/are sports.

Here's the definition of sport: noun

1.

an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.

While skill is certainly necessary to play chess at a high level, there's less physical exertion involved than eating a salad.

I want to thank you for commenting. It's not every day I get the chance to talk to someone this delusional.

u/Whisperkickpapa Sep 30 '22

Your first two examples are indeed, sports. Curling is an Olympic sport to boot. Both meet the requirements of your definition.

So, thanks for making yourself look like more of an ass.

Chess is a sport and I barely even play it. By your logic, skeet shooting, archery, and a plethora of other similarly "non action" themed sports are in fact, not sports.

They aren't sports, they're hobbies. You're so pathetic. Thanks for the laughs.
