    8 Down. A rope is that which waits for no man? No man goes under (9)
    The solution of TIMENOGUY is an expression I’ve never heard. I’m presuming guy=rope, and I’m familiar with the expression regards time & tide waiting for no man. The clue says the answer is a nine letter word: is this correct – or should it have been (4,2,3)? I’d appreciate references to the etymology of this word. Google gives no clues.
    9 Down. Batting record no good after getting 100 in game?? (8,6)
    I’m aware of C=100, and contract bridge is a card game, but I’m completely baffled ñý ‘batting record no good’. Please enlighten me!

      Hi David.

      8D: One of Kropotkin’s ridiculously obscure words 🙂 Timenoguy is a word: see https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/timenoguy#:~:text=Definition%20of%20timenoguy,rigging%20from%20chafing%20or%20fouling

      So, ‘a rope’ is the definition. And you’re right, ‘that which waits for no man’s is TIME and under that is NO + GUY (‘man’).

      9D: ‘game’ is the definition. The answer is an anagram (‘no good’) of BATTING RECORD with C included.

      I hope this helps!
