Contrary to your belief, I will refer you to help rule #2109
"The TD also has the power to intervene on his/her own in matches that have clearly stalled a bracket of the tournament, whether or not a player requests such intervention. Typically this will be done when a match is one full round behind the other matches in its bracket. In other words, if you are still on round 1, say, and the rest the bracket has moved to round 3, your match may, and probably will, be called by the TD. In such a case, the match will be awarded to the leader if it cannot be determined that the slow play is the fault of either player (i.e. both players lagging, or “just one of those matches” that refuses to end).
In either case, the TD’s decision is final and irrevocable. Our primary goal is to keep tourneys moving smoothly and on schedule, anything else is unfair to the players in the tourney."
No, I can't make everyone happy, but no TD should have to take the abuse handed out by certain players who should know better, therefore, the alternative is to limit the number of hands to suicide matches. I invite you to be a TD yourself and put up with the garbage thrown at us when you wouldn't be playing at all if not for those who give freely of their time so you can play.
