Interested in Language
I am seeking help from you for some English phrases or expressions to describe a situation that when somebody lose in a game, they would admit the loss and ask for an appeal, saying that the result is unfair; but when they win the game, they would take the result, and say that the game is fair.
Any expression or idiom for that? Please advise.
Let me add some qualifiers. That is, when somebody loses in a game, he becomes a sore loser, and saying that the game is unfair, and presses on a re-match. But when he wins at the match, he would say it was a fairplay. Kind of double standard just to take the result favorable to him.
