I've left with number 1 a few times never to return. I won it fair and square, fight me.

As a traveling player, there is no tag that is THAT important to me. Though, it is likely that it is THAT important to the guys playing all the time for those tags. I have heard all of the opinions that stand on principle, and most are correct, but my principles would not allow for me to take the top tag. If my ego needed to be sated, I might try to trade the tag for some club emblazoned mini or towel.

A couple of the tag leagues I play in now have gone to electronic tag assignment. DGS usually, around here. We all get generic tags without numbers and enter play and tag switches into a league page.

This is one of the best ideas I have ever heard. I'm going to try this with our club this year - maybe even get personalized tags if it doesn't cost a fortune.

I hate this idea! I currently hold the #1 tag and I want everyone to see that bad mother hanging from my Juju!

Our (very small) club did bag tags as a fund raiser and I had the #1 tag.
Without any warning, my job changed from days to rotating shifts.
What this meant, in my situation, was that I was not going to be available to play for tags with any regularity.

I gave the club the #1 tag.
They've had a blast competing for the tag and I never gave it a second thought.
It was the right thing to do.

Yeah....it became a big hassle otherwise. A bunch of us would be in tournaments and forget to change tags, or some would take off right after the tournament before swapping tags. We ended up mailing tags to one another, it was a drag.

Of course, it was an Alztimers bag tag league....a bunch of 50+ players. Could explain some of the forgetting.

Our Club orders two #1 Tags just in case someone wins it and leaves town, it gets lost, etc... Saves all the drama of this scenario and costs next to nothing in the big picture. In 14 years we’ve had to break out the reserve #1 4 times I think...

You're right. You won it fair and square.

You also won the right to have your name dragged through the mud. For people to speak ill about you. For people to come up with by-laws bc some a-hole cares more about, literally #1, than the group that put the event on, every week. Congratulation on your win. Can't wait to never play with you.

When I played in a table tennis ladder league, we could only challenge those at most 7 spots above us, and the newest person would start at the bottom

This should solve a one time drive-by obtaining a #1 tag

Long ago we had bag tags on a challenge-only system (not thrown in at tournaments). A challenger who lost paid the winner 25 cents per difference in their numbers. It certainly kept #33 from pestering #2 over and over.
