Default Sparing Young Soccer Players the Agony of Defeat

LONDON (Reuters) - A British soccer league wants to spare children the pain of being trounced on the field and then having to read all about it afterward.
The Sheffield and District Football League has forbidden its members from sending scores to the Derbyshire Times after the newspaper reported how an under-nine team was "trounced" 29-0 in a crucial match.

The league, believing this description could heap even more humiliation on children from the losing side, told the newspaper it could not cover any more junior league matches until it agreed not to publish results in which the score exceeds 14 goals.

Derbyshire Times editor Mike Wilson refused and thinks the league is overreacting. "The league is being a bit too politically correct," he told Reuters.

"We think the it should concentrate on why some teams seem to be so hopelessly mismatched that they lose 29-0."

Wendy McMahon, the mother of one of the league's players, has organized a petition against the gagging order.

"My son Adam is so disappointed," she said. "He loves to collect cuttings of all his match reports from the newspaper. He understands that winning isn't everything and that football involves taking the good with the bad."

PPft... what happened to true sportsmanship?

If you win, you do it gracefully. You don't grandstand. You don't be an asshole to the losing team.

If you lose, you do it equally as gracefully. You don't piss, moan, and cry. You suck it up and hope for the better. You work harder to get that "Dubya."

Now we worry that people's feelings might get hurt if they lose?

Whats the point of competing?

Lets all hold hands and pray to the god of fairness.
