I agree, that does sound similar (the dogging part in particular).

But it sounds like that's actually the social contract arrangement of GM and player role. The GM tries to hold the dream together and the players try to win over it and find further challenge in the GM dogging them. This time you were in the GM role and he the player role. When he GM's, he fills the Mr McGrumpy role.

It's kind of like kids going to Mr McGrumpies house and throwing rocks at his roof until he comes out, swishing his walking stick from side to side and threatening to call the cops, at which point the children run off in gleeful terror. This, instead of going to Mr McGrumpies after school soccer training, where he sets a bunch of challenges/training courses to raise the kids skills and growls at them when they slack off.
