I don't like handicapping, in any sport, and never have. It's an egalitarian practice-as I see it-without any significant merit. I'm firmly committed to the view that a society in which awards are commensurate with performance, productivity, is preferable to any egalitarian system. We should avoid like the plague all efforts to harass, restrict, or handicap the talented, the efficient, the superior performer. This is just as sound a stance in economics generally as in sports.
