Default I lose faith in people on a daily basis

Today's example:

Co-Worker has a 14 yr old daughter (just turned literally a week ago), she has 2 friends, both 13 yrs old.

They entered a U-14 (i am to assume this means 14 and under) 3 on 3 soccer tournament. They all qualified legally for the age cutoffs.

They won their first game 11-0

They won the second game 9-0

After that the tournament organizers asked them to withdraw from the tournament. Because they were "too good".

People can be such fucking pussies.

yup, I know, cool story brah.....

One of my pet peeves in life is the whole participation trophy bullshit which leads to a society filled with Hancho's who think they are entitled to everything and reverse mortgages and shit.

On a more serious note, I do agree with you.

People can be pussies. In that situation, seems like they don't want the girls to compete because they want everybody to be on an equal level. Maybe so it's fun for everybody?

Who gives a fukc . If they are good, then they are good. Shouldn't take something away from somebody if they are good at it.

that is lame if they met the requirements for the tournament

I would refuse to let someone do that to my kids (if I had any), and wouldn't expect any less if my kids brought the suck. I'd be happy that they are doing what they love, and don't whine about having to play against someone better.

I bet it is more that the girls KS knows are ok. It's the other teams that is not good.

Well, one of the girls has played with boys her whole life (coaches daughter in this instance), she lived in Scotland until she was 10. Her dad was a pretty good soccer player, and clearly she doesn't suck either.

But why should she not be allowed to play in a tournament and have fun just because she and her friends are good at the game they signed up to play?

Beyond that I don't know any specifics.

Makes sense to me. If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. Translation; you signed up to COMPETE. If you are losing, you need to get better or quit. Don't ask the winning team to quit.

This reminds me of one of the SOD sprint car races I went to a year or two ago. One driver, Dustin Daggett, Tends to walk away with the race at that track (can't remember if it was Crystal or I96). The track and other racers bet him he couldn't win the A main from last place, something to the tune of $500. It made it one hell of a race, he ended up 2nd.

Yeah rather than have the other girls raise to their level, they have to be taken down.

This does send a message to other kids and creates a have and have nots attitude. If somebody is better than you, they should do something about it rather than you taking your own action.
