Spitting

Reading AM's tweet about spitting reminded me of how things have changed since my father's days of playing and refereeing football, and playing cricket.  He used to carry a handkerchief in his pocket, as did many players in those olden days.  I dare say pitches are now plagued with phlegm and mucous, or gob and snot, depending what era you're from.  Personally, I find the sight of anybody displaying these disgusting habits, in and outside sport, makes me cringe.  YUCK.

I agree totally! There's no need for it, as it's a proven fact that excercise does 'not' make you salivate! It's just a filthy habit. If a footballer falls and skins his knee, he's in danger of getting a really nasty infection! I read about it a year or two ago. They should be fined for spitting I think!

After the final yesterday, Djokovic blew his nose into his towel.  I do hope he didn't throw it into the crowd as a souvenir.  Yuk again.  I don't want to appear sexist, but it does seem to be a man thing.

At one of the tournies he wiped his nose on his t-shirt.

Spitting in public is a revolting habit, along with snorting snot out of one side of the nose.  But it's nothing new.  I can remember when all railway carriages displayed a sign in their compartments requesting passengers not to spit on the floor, and when pubs, in Scotland anyway, were referred to as "spit and sawdust joints".
