Rivals High - School seeks to forfeit 100-0 win
That's the funniest thing I've ever heard.
Well they obviously didn't show up!
I have no idea if they should allow this or not???? I am sure there is some lesson to be learned but what is it?
1st.. IMHO it was wrong to do that in an obvious blowout.. show a little class in the 2nd 1/2 and put in your freshmen and bench players
2nd... the 'lesser' team did right and kept playing.. good for them
3rd.. after the fact, what good is a forfeit gonna do? It really does not teach a lesson.. no good comes of it.. and frankly, to me, it's pretty shallow and self serving... trying to respin bad press.. well guess what... it's still bad press and it does not change the past... best option, just let it go
the coach of the winning team really has a lot to learn. what purpose is served by letting his team completely wipe the floor with the other team? a good coach would have backed way off and let his kids learn something about sportsmanship. frankly, he should be horsewhipped.
"Even if you are losing, you might as well keep playing," said Shelby Hyatt, a freshman on the (losing) team. "Keep trying, and it's going to be OK."
at least somebody in the building had the right idea.
We once beat a team 41-0 in hockey. It was fun.
Lesson: don't let quadriplegics play basketball?
Ok, so I'm going to hell for that comment. But seriously, how can a basketball team not score a SINGLE basket?
20 girls in the high school, damn. I know I wouldn't be proud of winning this game, they went up and whooped a bunch of kids with "learning differences".
And actually J (going to hell for this one)
Lesson: Keep your eye on the ball.
when i coached my son's second grade team, we were 1-3 after 4 games.
in those 4 games, we scored *a* basket.
i still get a chuckle outta that many years later.
So you guys beat a team 2-0?
