:According to OED, neither of these is quite on, though the boxing one is
:closer. It's a stratagem of the boxer on the ropes to entice his opponent
:into throwing tiring but ineffective  punches

Well, at least I didn't come down on the side of the goat ropers, which is
how it was used in the meeting.

Thanks to all for the help.
