Thinking back to another coach I had in highschool bball. We beat a team by 40 points and he made us do lines (suicides) after the game. The other coach thought our coach was showing him up and a fight almost ensued. Our coach's rationale was, that we weren't sticking to our game plan. lol

We've done lines and other conditioning drills after 3 games that I can remember because the coach thought we didn't work hard enough to get better as our goal was to improve a little bit every day and i agreed with his decision. You play to win and to get better till you can say you're the best. I also remember the assistant coach putting guys that played low minutes through a workout after the game to make sure they got reps and a sweat in after almost every game.

People also seem to gloss over the fact that clearly there is an issue with their divisional breakdowns/ matchups, this match shouldn't have happened in the first place with the proper management in place

This is just ludacris, hearing a coach getting fired for a game of high school girls basketball. What kind of world are we in where a team that practices to succeed gets bashed for winning a team who clearly lacks the effort to practice and do well. Dont tell me that they dont have enough funds of budget to practice. All they need is 1 ball, a court inside or out, and time. If the team that lost didnt want to try why bother wasting peoples time having a team.

We are in a generation where we are too concern with tucking people in and making everyone comfortable with political correctness and sympathy. People dont play sports NOT to try and win. I want to know what the losing teams side of the story is. In Ice604 if you are up 5-7+ goals. they run the whole third period through without any stops regardless of time left.

Just my 2cents

When I was in High School, Victoria had a basketball tournament every year. A team from Seattle would come and beat every team by 60 to 70 points. No one complained no one cried. The score would have been higher if the team did not have a minimum 3 pass and no dunking rule.

I played on a top provincial/national level lacrosse team and I can explicitly remember my coach telling us to run up the score on certain teams to embarass them. Probabaly more of a pump up thing then a reality.

Then again, there were some games where we were dominating so bad that we would switch our offence and defense around.. Those were always entertaining.

It's another case of giving people credit, and making them feel comfortable in this world. It's like the teacher who gave "zeroes" to students and got fired for it. If the work and time isn't put in, you lose. You don't get part marks, you don't get a part victory.

I remember playing, and we got thrashed by 50 points, hell, we got laughed at and it was sad, but that just meant we had a hell of a lot of room to improve. Better yet, if the team knows they'll be thrashed, why not throw in the towel? Lose-lose situation.
We play sports to win. I'd be mad if the team started showing off how badly they won, but if they just played they're best, I don't believe the coach deserved what he got.

pathetic...if high school kids can't deal with an embarassing match score...how are they gonna handle disappointments later in life?

Then you'll have media telling the public how a prank call can push someone over the edge into suicide

When i was in high school, we played a really weak team in a tournament from Khalsa (sp?). When the lead was 40 or 50 points, our coach swapped the starters for the bench players, and that's when I got my career high of 10 points.

He called a timeout in the 3rd quarter and told us (the bench) to ease up more and that that was the only time he'd ever tell us to do so. We ended up winning 95-15 before getting destroyed in the next game by North Delta, a team of black guys and east indians who took offense to us "embarrassing" the Khalsa team.

I agree with that.

I don't think in our participation trophy age that we need to tell the team to intentionally starting playing poorly, but you can certainly tell them to not win so damned hard.

But you also shouldn't fire the guy for this. It's a fucking high school basketball game.

How is it respect to not play at 100%?
Somehow saying you suck so much I'm going to go easy on you is less awful than you suck so much I beat you 100-0?
When you're doing ANYTHING competitive, you should put in your best effort and expect your opponent to as well.
If you suck, you suck. Life isn't fair. Don't compete if you can't deal with it.

It seems like it was a David vs. Goliath thing...and Goliath won. There are some racial undertones to the story as well, and the media loves that.

Top comment from ESPN story:

Sometimes in life, you just get your backside handed to you on a silver platter. I guarantee you there isnt one girl on that team who will ever forget that game for the rest of their life, and they will remember the feeling of humiliation, amd work harder in every aspect of their life to avoid that feeling again. Thats way more valuable to personal growth than any "participation award".

Winning 107-2 is only bad if any of the following things happen:

- The coach tells his team to run up the score for the hell of it.

- The coach and team overtly celebrate every single point that's scored.

I remember the USA women's soccer coach did that when they played some tiny country with a small soccer program. The coach celebrated and high fived her team after each goal even when they were already up by 10. It was really poor.

In pro sports, yeah sure, run that score up. Sportsmanship my ass. It's less sporting to let up. That's like telling the other team that despite the fact you both do the exact same job and probably get paid the same money, you're better than them so you're taking pity on them. Grown ass men can take defeat and embarassment because getting your ass handed to you on the ice motivates you to destroy those fucks the next time.

But in kids sports...c'mon...kids don't know this shit yet and it's high school so it's probably...just for fun?

Ah, the fired coach was from another "incident".

Quote:
At a girls high school Basketball game in Texas back in January of 2009, the Covenant School embarrassed Dallas Academy handing them a 100-0 loss. The covenant school was up 59-0 at half time, but continued to shoot three-pointers well into the 4th quarter and play a press defense for the entirety of the game. Covenant girls varsity head coach, Micah Grimes, was then fired after the 100-0 victory and did not make any apologies for his actions.
The original source I read it from was in Korean and I guess they threw in some bits

Maybe they should go ahead and give the team that lost a participation trophy as well.

The pussification of society continues.


How many people who say "they should ease up, its not pro sports, its highschool sports just for fun" have never played a sport in their life? It doesn't matter if you're 33 years old in the NHL playoffs or 14 in highschool basketball or 23 in monday night co-ed indoor soccer. EVERYONE plays to win and goes out and competes. When you're in that game, it's all you think about. You don't have the luxury of sitting behind a computer saying 'its just a silly game, its not pro sports'. No one wants to lose, and equally as much, no one wants to half ass it. Sports is about doing your best, not about saving your opponents feelings. "Just have a good time, don't worry about winning" is what parents say to fat 5 year olds crying on the sidelines because they suck at sports.
