They don't do them ever anymore...

But no, they did not back then.

Just summer... it was an outdoor facility... Exhibition Stadium, where the Blue Jays used to play.

I remember opening day there.



Was it Ernie Whitt who wore his shin pads like skis and took a trip across the field?

.
Saw this story as well. I agree that reserves should have played the whole second half.

That's what she is telling CJ. I drank way more in college because I could burn it off, and I couldn't run 20 miles.

Agree with pro vs non-pro sports and trophies for everything.

Glad you're still buying it.

Never did snow skiing. I hope it works for you. I did take dds sledding, and that was a lot of fun.

I can relate. But like Brian said, I'll bet the grandparents will warm up eventually. I've seen that happen in other people's adoptions.

I can relate. The family isn't allowed to ask serious questions or try to talk us out of it unless I'm present. Gotta protect the missus.

I think what it comes down to is common sense. The winning coach claims he only had 9 players and was playing everyone, rotating players every 4 minutes. I guess my translation of this is "fresh legs on the floor every 4 minutes and starters are still getting in the game." There's no reason that anybody other than his 4 reserves and 1 starter should have been on the floor for them in the second half. I don't agree with the idea of them just holding the ball, to keep from scoring, but at least slow it down and run some offense and let your reserves get some significant playing time. It might not have altered the final outcome much due to the definite difference in talent levels, but that's at least a little more classy way to handle it, IMO.

One time we were still scoring so I put in a rule that any shot had to be off a volley, half-volley or header.
I have coached varsity basketball at the high school level for both boys and girls. Only bringing 9 players to a game is also part of the wrong philosophy. Knowing his opponent, he should have dressed JV players and had them available. I regularly carried 10 all varsity and 4 JV/varsity players. These 4 players would play one half of JV and then be available for a half in the varsity game. He could easily have brought a larger roster to that game and allowed the younger players to gain experience and not been an @$$.

I do agree that you don't need a mercy rule. They need to terminate coaches that have no compassion or regard for the situation and hire good coaches with common sense and morals as discussed. Good coaches can find a solution to allow both sides to learn and become better players and people. It really is shameful.
