Why do some players get so mad about doubling? It is a fun part of the game. You work into position, get an advantage, and double.

Especially at the later stages, some people think it is disrespectful, why?

Excellent question. I have often wondered the same

Other than sore losers, i cannot come up with anything on that. Its a game strategy that allows you to maximize your chance of winning. Resign if you dont like it!

And the people that double on the very first roll---- REALLY get mad when you are winning a game and then double.

Haha, yes. Doubling at the beginning gives that advantage to the other player. I don't understand this strategy.
