We don't always do what's right, we sometimes have to do what it takes.
However, that doesn't make it an acceptable approach it just means we do it anyway.
My point is quite simply this - proper casting technique (the point of this section) is to find ways to keep the casting stroke on the downwind side. Period.
I think you are creating an argument where there is none, I also do what it takes fully knowing it's wrong in the heat of the moment. So when I hit myself, I say to myself "self - YOU EEDIOTT!!!".
