The 'ole reverse T-bone
This came up in a few times in pick-up the other day-
I found myself blocking an opponent who was forced to stop, but then had room to steer around my rear wheel. Obviously not seeing this as an ideal situation, I hopped backwards into his path. The most common result is that he would catch my rear wheel and one or both of us would end up dabbing.
Obviously, this isn't the prettiest play for either of us. But, is there a foul here? It seems to me that he's t-boning me, and it seems to him that I'm reverse t-boning him.
