Not sure Mag what's a "competition field"
"Agin" had me going too. At first I had supposed competition resulted in premature aging of the field, until I realized you mean "against," or "agin' " But now let's discuss punctuation. Whereas I'd expected the apostrophe at the end, in a purely technical sense it ought to be written "ag'in' "
So I consulted my Better Half, much smarter than I, who denied that usage, whereupon I confirmed her observation by Googling
….whereupon realizing the apostrophe was for emphasis not abbreviation. Still however, what's a "competition field"
Edited to remark a sudden realization that "field" might simply mean preponderance or overwhelming majority. Again however my Better Half dissents
Yet thanks Maggie for this distraction
