    Your not a lone voice in this and the whole thing is hyperthetical anyway as we all acknowledge that at club level the resources aren't there to identify slow players in a fair way.

    We "draw" the majority of our comps and we "fiddle" it by putting a known slow player with two that don't hang around. It appears to work for us.

    Why not fiddle it and put the slow player out last with other slow players?

    That was my reaction when I first encountered the concept of Group Pace of Play some years ago.
    We debated it within my county but it got no support at all.

    I do however think the 'staging post' is a good idea when the organisers are short of qualified referees.
    Using 3 or 4 'unqualified' helpers to time the players through strategic holes to alert one referee with a buggy to a problem could be useful.

    Do you get involved in cards and comps. I wouldn't want to hang about waiting for know groups of slow players.

    If you're not prepared to do anything about slow play, then just put up with it - no whining about it.
    The group pace of play works, and the players appreciate that it works. (and I'm not going to enter any "moral" arguments about it; that's just arguing personal opinions.)

    Moral arguments are just personal opinions???? Wow. To hold a moral objection to a course of action is hardly "whining about it". Slow play can be, and is managed without unfairness.

    I wondered if the "it works so it it's all right" argument would emerge. That's what Donald Trump says about waterboarding.
