    Looks like two senior men’s saber fencers met in the 32s and were black carded at the Pomme de Terre today. Anyone know what happened?

    Cheers,

    I don't see anything like that in the live results. The closest is one bout where (as recorded) the opponent withdrew. Am I missing something? Where did you see this?

    My mistake. I searched for the live results and the 2017 tournament came up. So that was a year ago. Still curious what happened but it’s old news.

    I got this story 2nd hand: 2 fencers known for causing ruckus were fencing. One is crushing the other. The trailing fencer decides he's had enough and unhooks from the strip (before the end of the bout). The leading fencer says "Bye" [pejorative term relating to a female dog]. 2 black cards awarded.
