The same thing can happen to anyone
, anytime someone doesn't know the rules
What about the situation where one player barrel-tags another, and even says "barrel tag," only to have the tagged player spin and shoot him close-up because he
didn't read the rule stating that a barrel tag is an automatic elimination?
So, using your outlook, perhaps we should just eliminate barrel tags altogether so as to avoid misunderstandings that could result in a fight? There are others, too, like helicopters and such, that could cause confusion as well.
The "magic phrase" isn't "barrel tag." The magic phrase is "Know the rules
." Ignorance of the rules is what leads to the problem in both
of the above scenarios.
