My issue is the attempt to characterize him as a coward merely to salve bruised egos.
Kaspar is many things but he's really not a coward.
Good for you! When he played on the Island I couldn't even muster up that level of good will.
I don't view him as a coward, just as dishonerable.
The fact is that, with the instigator rule in place, Kaspar doesn't have back up his play with his fists. Infact, nobody really has to fight anymore, seeing as both players have want to fight before the fight even starts.
Even so, I think if your gonna play cheap that you should back it up. Kaspar doesn't and that drives me nuts. Still, he's a Ranger and an important one at that, so I'll have to live with it.
