    This would be good to see as a poll.
    I personally would vote to have coaching banned. My main reason is because of how much it slows down matches and is very painful and boring experience as a spectator. Even 1 minute of coaching between each game can add up to an extra hour or two of tournament length.
    I suppose if it were only allowed during a grand finals or losers finals, then 45 seconds between games might be acceptable.

    I skipped this whole threa except the OP so I am not going to comment on anything said.
    I honestly thought it was already banned at bigger tournaments until recently. Coaching, if there is any, should be done before the match. I remember asking for some advice against an opponent and my friend told they always tech in place. I think that's ok. I didn't win the match because I had only been playing for like two months at the time... But I was a small step ahead from where I would have been.
    I think coaching has a place... Just not anywhere between the start and end of a set.

    To steer the discussion then into the right direction, It may be beneficial to edit the first post and include this.

    My rational came from a project management mindset. When proposing a solution to an issue, you get the most buy-in from decision makers when providing a full start-to-finish solution (or start-to-finish with some options). The discussion is a little bit all over the place so I apologize if jumped the gun and assumed the process was further along then I had thought.

    If the goal right now is to gauge where the community is at on the topic, I agree with what @AquaTech said, a poll would have been nice ;) (though I suppose it isn't possible to add one after the fact, is it?).

    I honestly think this is the best approach here. I was reading this thread a few days ago, and when I saw Doof's set against you (V115) yesterday and noticed he wasn't doing any grab release stuff I remembered you having said this, and that's why I asked you if you were okay with me giving him advice mid-set. No harm in asking and you get the best of both worlds, right?

    I am going to enforce this if it ever becomes an issue at my SSB64 tournaments!
