Chessvibes has the reason why. Talking about whether or not the 'Sofia rules' will apply during the upcoming match between Topalov and Anand, Chessvibes quotes Danailov:
If one player doesn’t offer or accept draws they will apply. Vishy [Anand] doesn’t agree but he will be forced, because Topalov will not offer him a draw and he will not speak to him. So, what to do? He will be forced. This is the best. This is the best, otherwise… I don’t know, there’s people who are absolutely conservative, they are against these rules, but this is the future of chess. This is for sure.
To which Arne Moll, writing in CV, responds with understandable shock. But the Dutchman should relax.
Danailov is simply practicing a bit of that old familiar technique: sledging. Now as I understand it, Danailov spent some time in Melbourne. Did he learn it there, I wonder.
Speaking of sledging, Anand ought to have no problems with salvos of his own. Who else to turn to for a few good ones but his compatriots the cricketers? He could take a few tips from Indian legend, Ravi Shastri.
Here's what happened between an Australian 12th man and Shashtri:
Shastri hits the ball towards the 12th man in the game and looks for a single. The Aussie guy gets the ball in and says,
Aussie: "If you leave the crease I'll break your f***ing head".
Shastri: "If you could bat as well as you can talk you wouldn't be the f***ing 12th man."
True story that. And as a matter of fact, it was Indian sledging against the old enemy Pakistan that led to the so-called "Frog Jumping Incident". That one's a hoot!
