The good thing about sports competition versus other areas of life is that it's more clear cut. No amount of whining or protesting will alter the outcome to favor your interest. No amount of power or influence you hold can change the outcome. So you are left to just deal with it. Some people, like the sherdog member quoted above, try and make believe that "what they come to terms with" matters, but it doesn't. Whether or not you accept the outcome is completely irrelevant.
