    I never faced that in football, but when I was a teenager I played tournament baseball and I remember not liking the ten run rule that they had, where if one team was up by ten in the 6 or whatever inning that the game was over. Even when my team was getting beaten really bad like that I always thought "shouldn't we try to get as much practice as possible against teams like this?". The parents would always get mad if another team were trying to run up the score once they were past ten, and though I hated losing, I don't ever remember getting pissed. Learn your lesson, you're never gonna win them all, play better next time.

    You know, maybe you're on to something. We should probably have an automatic lawsuit after every game, even pro, because there must have been some kind of name-calling, trash talking, bias by the refs, or something that a lawyer could use to get it into court. I'm sure Congress, many of whom are lawyers, would be willing to pass legislation to smooth the path for this to happen.

    when I was in 9th grade, we played a team for the state championship. the score was 33-0 at the half. the opposing team had 12 yards of total offense the entire first half. Coach put all the scrubs in at the start of the second half and we still scored 20 more points (we didn't even make an attempt at the PAT the last two scores. went for 2 and the QB took a knee) We had 26 yards passing the entire game because Coach was trying not to score too quickly.

    Saw a video with the coach being interviewed this morning. It doesn't seem like bullying and he seems like a genuinely nice guy.

    ok, this accurate post promotes my rant of the day
    we are doing things backwards
    i officiate a lot of fast pitch games. and many of the coaches are not teaching ALL of the girls the fundamentals of the game. kids are not being taught to throw off of their back foot, or instructed how to position themselves for a catch, or square up for a bunt. most of the girls have no idea what they are going to do with the ball once it is hit to them; this is clearly a coaching shortcoming. the coaches tend to only focus on how the pitcher is performing. coach all of the kids damn it!

    in contrast, in public schools (at least in my state), they have abandoned ability grouping the students. the misguided theory is that the slow kids will learn more if they are mainstreamed with the bright kids. bull ****. being around a fast student does not accelerate a weak student. but having the material presented to the fast students at a slow pace to accommodate the slow students only causes the advanced students to become average

    the point is we need to mainstream the athletes and ability group the students. right now, we have it backwards

    when a coach does that, and does not take advantage of every opportunity to run up the score, then he is found to have been a 'good sport'
    Benching your starters when a win is assured makes good coaching sense but I don't think there is anything wrong in doing everything you can to win as long as you're not being a dick about it. Sportsmanship is a two way street and sometimes a losing team has to learn you occasionally get the snot beaten out of you but you still have to be a good sport about it. Regardless of how much better one team was then the other, the winning team should not have been expected to basically quit.

    i agree with you
    as a coach, you tell your kids to always play their best
    to always play hard
    to never give up on a play

    the coach would be a hypocrite to then say "take it easy, don't try your best",
    when the kids are winning by a huge margin

    when I was in 7th grade. we played the "alternative" school in JV basketball. dudes had full beards and one guy even had a little kid in the stands. score was 60+ to zip at halftime. we cried and begged the coach not to make us go back out for the 2nd half. He told us to "man up". basically what you said. sometimes you get the crap beaten out of you and learning how to lose is just as important as learning how to win. final score was somewhere around 130-5. I hit a jumper from the top of the key (this was pre 3 pointer) and a free throw and another kid hit two free throws.

    I recommend that everybody who sees this "father" in the streets give him a wedgie.
