was fired!, after allowing his team to rack up a score of 100, while their opponents had 0. What are your thoughts on this?
(I don't have a link, I just saw it on the news)

I think it's bogus. Yeah, it sucks that the other team didn't score at all. How exactly are they supposed to play the game? Are they supposed to give the least amount of effort so as to give the other team a sporting chance? What happened to aspiring to greatness?

but the coach should certainly have some level of sportsmanship as a good example and should certainly be able to control their competative selfishness as an adult!
How exacty is he supposed to teach them how to compete? If the other team isn't doing well, then is he supposed to make the girls 'let' the other team score a bunch, just to keep the crowd excited? Isn't the nature of competition to do your best? Why bother if you aren't even going to put the effort in?

This is the silliest thing ever. Just more of the dumbing down of America. We all have to be brought down to the lowest common denominator and that is sad. That coach did NOTHING wrong. The coach that should go is the other teams coach that put a team that was clearly not qualified into a position they shouldn't have been in!
