None whatsoever. I merely stated that it *seems*, from an *outside*
perspective - note those words carefully - that the timing
seems coincidental in a few cases. I did not state that ANYONE was
knighted ONLY because they won Crown, with no consideration given to

That's interesting - I did not know that. I did assume that there was

followed directly on from the end of the preceding paragraph:
	"Most people who become king do so by expending tremendous effort and
energy training themselves in the sport

That is the statement I agreed with. Your misinterpretation is, I am
sure, due to my snipping out too much of the original message in my
reply, but what you said in #3 is most certainly not what I meant.
