    A lot of professional athletes and coaches among others who "play sports" have expressed the same thing that wiggen has expressed so the "you haven't played sports card" doesn't really work here.

    O conservatives and their pathologies.

    what an idiotic take. Telling every kid they are winners when they have done nothing to deserve such praise leads to kids who end up being "progressives" and thinking they don't have to work for rewards

    Uh yeah, I actually have as did every single person in my family so I'm quite familiar with it. That's irrelevant though.

    In any case, I see you're fond of the deflection defense mechanism. Again, many professional athletes and coaches have expressed the same things wiggen did and they have far more experience in "playing sports" than any of us. How do you account for that in light of your dismissal of wiggen's post?

    Which answers the "you haven't played sports" question.

    But really, there is an observable problem and it won't be solved by going to extremes. You're correct, abuse isn't the answer, but neither is coddling or raising hothouse flowers. There is a middle ground.

    No deflection, I post exactly what I intend. Any athlete at any level would not take issue with the actions taped unless they were wussies...

    Why didn't the Rutgers players just say, "**** you jack! I quit!", if they were so opposed to how they were treated? None of them were man enough to stand up to the coach. No wonder they have a losing record.

    A sum-bitch hit me with a basketball like that and he would have gotten hit back with the same ball, only harder and his is ****in face.

    I agree, abuse and treating kids like snowflakes both leave them unprepared for the world just in different ways. Adults who do either need to get their **** together.

    Now you're abandoning what you said to wiggen. You criticized his post on the assumption that he hadn't played any sports. However, many professional athletes and coaches have said the same things that wiggen said. This means that your criticism of wiggen's post was nonsensical. Do you concede this or will you continue to deflect?
