    Link: What Do You Do If Your Kid Looses a Football Game? - Sue the winning coach for bullying, of course.

    That is ridiculous. I have been on both sides of routs in sport games. You experience relatively innocuous forms of the "thrill of victory" and the "agony of defeat", what`s wrong with that? If this were my dad, it would be worse than a 91-0 loss on my psyche.

    I guess, after it was obvious they were going to win, the coach should have told the players to hold back and not win by so much. `Cause a humiliating defeat would be bullying, right?


    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    I`m not sure who is worse: the douchebag coach for running up the score or the whiney little bitch parent for suing.

    Whatever...they deserve each other.

    I thought most kid leagues had rules about running up the score so high. Would have been a good character lesson for the winning team to show more sportsmanship.

    No, see, it`s one thing to take out the starters. The coach did that. And to quit passing the ball. The coach did that. And to not run any trick plays, just run the ball. The coach did that. And to use a running clock in the second half (in other words, the clock doesn`t stop at all). He did that, too!

    But to ask him to ask his players NOT to score? No. That`s bullpoo. He can ask them to go easy for safety. He can punish them for any showboating, any taunting, anything unsportsmanlike. But there`s nothing unsportsmanlike about second and third stringers playing a game against first stringers, with a running clocks, and still whipping their asses. That`s life. And a valuable lesson to learn. The idiot parent who filed this report ought to be called out for being an idiot.

    Can I sue my boss for making my work hard instead of making it easy for me? He`s creating an atmosphere of dread and drudgery! But then he`s german so what else can you expect.

    Sorry, but grow a pair! I have been on teams on both sides of lopsided games. In one baseball game we won 45-0. In another we lost 37-1. You learn your lessons and move on. You can`t tell a kid that poured his heart and soul into playing a game, spent all the time in practice and then some, to not play hard. That`s even worse. Besides, anything can happen. I was in one baseball game where we were winning 13-0 in ninth and lost 14-13!

    OldOllie-"douchebag coach for running up the score"

    The coach took out the first string early, and played everybody but the waterboy. You do not tell anyone to play below their best.

    lauriloo-"I thought most kid leagues had rules about running up the score so high."

    Most do, but this high-school system has no `Mercy` Rule.

    It`s understandable in Tee-ball, because you`re just learning the game and you want it to be fun.

    By the time you make it to high-school you should know life is a competition and sometimes you lose, especially if you suck at what you do.

    I`d rather you learn the reality that worry about Little Johnny`s Self-Esteem. (here`s a clue: When you get a job, you are not going to get a raise because you feel good about yourself)
