I knew an old high school football coach who would never run trick plays (half back pass, double reverse, fake punts).
He felt that this wasn't the way the game was meant to be played.
He went 0-10 in has last season before he was forced into retirement.
I think this relates to what Gallan is saying.
It's like the motto of the TV show Survivor - "Out Wit, Out Play, Out Last".
If you're physically not the better wrestler, I don't have a problem trying to win by being the smarter wrestler... as long as it is within the rules.
