so me and my buddy were discussing running up the score in sports. saying how its embarrassing to get your ass handed to you but its more embarrassing to watch people toy with you for half of the game.
So what do you all think? Does it matter? Do you care? Is it a good way at displaying skill? Should you always try your best and play as if it were your last game? Want to see more of it? Is it ethical? Interesting topic seeing how the NHL has seen a lot of it lately.
Are you talking about pro sports or in general? In high school, it was frowned upon and our coach would never do it. In basketball, he’d sit the starters for the 4th quarter if we were up by over 20. Personally in high school, I think it’s a dick move since there’s always a bunch of bench warmers waiting for a chance to play.
In my situation, our JV scored twice on their starters. I mean, if everytime you snap the ball and no one tackles you what do you do, fall on purpose?[/quote]
my senior year of highschool we played some terrible team for our homecoming game (they were in our league but they just sucked) after 8 minutes we were up 28 to nothing and our coach pulled all of our starters. Our JV guys ended up finishing off the game and we won 56-0. our coach didnt throw the ball in the second half once… our JV team did go undefeated that year so they were pretty damn good.
