Let's say there is a person on your league. They are a good bowler no question with a 225+ average(extra easy THS and typical THS delivery). No one really cares for said bowler because of their attitude. Said bowler makes comments about other people's score, achievements etc etc I have seen said bowler leave a 4-9 split, the machine comes down and clearly knocks a pin down. This person then does a score correction and continues to spare it up. Mind you this was 2-3 lanes away from me and not the pair I'm on but I watch intently because I have seen it once before.

Two things: wouldn't you as being a good bowler and leading the league in average be fair and record an honest score? If they do this and it inflates their average in my opinion they are cheating the league and themself. The people whom they're bowling against who allows it is cheating the league as well.

Do I or any other person have the right to intervene and make them play the game fairly by scoring it appropriately even though we are not on this person's pair? I know when we do finally get to bowl this person and if they're foolish enough to try something like that they will hear in no uncertain terms how I and other feel about the actions and they'll be forced to follow rules.

Just a pet peeve of mine. I have NEVER let a score correction go or cheated the game, my opponent or myself. I don't think anyone says much due to this person's attitude but I'm not going to be one of those people.
