Why do Players Delay Tournaments and Matches?

 I have noticed that players purposely delay tournaments and matches especially when they have lost positions. E.G. a month to get through the first five moves of an opening or down a piece then instead of a move a day they wait until there is an hour on their clock to make a move. Another problem is a player hold up a tournament bewing the only one in a grid without completing a game. Is it ego(look everyone is watching me) or do people purposely want to irritate other players.?
