What about giving players an interview or caution for whom taking dubious MTO or BB.
Suspicious players get investigated... they might wanna avoid that after the match and stop doing it...
OR... make them pay for MTO??
That's why I suggested that, whatever restrictions you place on players requesting MTOs, the umpire should still be able to call the trainer in an emergency. Li Na falling and hitting her head today would be just such a case.
