Are you suggesting that 7 year olds shouldn't be pushed to do their best? If you get a F in class shouldn't you study your tail off to get better? If your going to participate in something such as football hockey, school, green egg cooking you got to busy your tail to get better.1) the article is about kids as young as 7. Very diff from collegiate athletes. You propose 7-10 year olds go thru brutal practices? They have not even hit puberty yet.
O this angers me!
If anyone should be punished its the kids on the team that got their tails kicked and the coach that is coaching them! Maybe if they weren't such wimps they wouldn't get beat by 50 points.
In college if we got whooped our coaches certainty didn't feel sorry for us. The next week of practice was worse that getting stomped by another team.
We all know this rule started from some parent who was bullied as a kid and her kid is bullied now. He/she never stood up for them selfs and their kid is a coward now as well.
All of us have been bullied, or got our tails whooped before. We got to teach our kids not to take any crap from people and stand up. My dad taught me to always respect everyone and never start trouble but if someone started trouble with me I was not to back down. Punch trouble in the face! In this case these kids need to suck it up and play harder.
I'm going to stop my rant now! Sorry!2) article nor thread has anything to do with fighting.
