I've won and I've lost. I've listened to the critics and how they could have done it too, or done it better. Usually I just answer "Then why didn't you?" and their answers are almost always the same: "I am too busy" or "You were just lucky" or "How was I to know that could be done?"
Mostly though, with the good things I "was lucky" and with the bad things, they'd "have done it better". That is pretty much the recurring theme.
And has Booth ever been in the arena? His posts for the last many years indicate not.
