that is just awful, what they dont realize is that it is hurting the progress of those who will actually have an impact in high school football and possbily even beyond that.

This is unreal! We live in an "everyone gets a ribbon for trying" society. It makes me sick!

I would be in that age group and if that was happening where I play i would quit. It is a dumb rule.

True fact, gotta know what your signing up for. If you suck and don't like then get better or don't play. Football isn't for everyone. Nut up or shut up.

If any of those coaches ever get fined they can hit me up directly and I'll pay their fine. Football is the one sport where the weak should get pushed out of the sport sooner than later for their own betterment. People need to let Darwinism run its course.

I played ODP soccer and our high school team was made up of 11 state players (all boys private school). We used to do all our scoring in the first half and play keep away in the second half which only demoralized the other team more. At least we were able to work on ball skills, how are offensive players supposed to get better if they are limited in what they can do?

All this is doing is teaching kids that failure is not a bad thing. They are being told there is no incentive for being successful. What if Steve Jobs had been rewarded for failing early on would Apple have ever come along? Failure is what drives successful people, most have failed numerous times and manged to learn and move on.

I understand that there are some coaches out there who will try to intentionally rub it in, however the way they are going about resolving the problem is way out of line. By instituting that rule they are now forcing teams to basically give up during the course of play. Are they going to now see a player run towards the endzone then kneel down before they get there cause they don't want to score? Or are they going to just hand over the football to the opposing player? I don't get how there are people that are employed who can be that stupid. The easiest solution here would just be to institute a mercy rule if they are sick of certain coaches running up the score. Once a team gets up by a certain number of points you call the game. No fines needed and no reason for the winning team to try to tank the game by a certain point.

I may be born and raised in Cali and I am pretty liberal minded, but I am 100% against the pussification of America. If you lose, you lose. Don't want to feel like a loser? Than learn how to get better and win next time. Get shut out 70 to 0? Cut some of your crap players and find better players. Not everyone can win and nobody should get a "participation award". You don't get an award for participating. You get one for winning. You know what you get for participating? The fact that you get to play a sport that others can't.

Could you kindly knock some sense into whatever those things you guys call human beings are that live out there.

It's like some creeping mold that gets into the state ideologies and then infects the rest of us with an obnoxious growth that no amount of natural or pharmaceutical chemicals can keep under control.

Perhaps too much sun exposure bakes their brains?
