It is a crutch, and one which became popular around 2008 as part of the backlash against the idea of robotic approach monkey PUAs. Certain guys (often older, like ThePoolPlayer) announced that they weren't going to run around approaching lots of women, but were instead going to develop their 'sniper game'.
