Is it possible that you are feeling bad that your own son can't play (because of lack of effort from your ex) that you are also swaying more towards not allowing your step son to play as well? I mean don't get me wrong, I totally understand that finances and time do play a huge role here. But I would feel, if this was me, that by raising two sons to deny one something and grant the other it would display some form of favoritism onto your step son. It seems like your husband would not want to put you in a position such as this anymore than you would want to do that to him. I think both boys should play the same forms of sports. Its tough being a parent. Sometimes you have to tell you children No, sounds like "dad" is being pushier here and needs to hear no though.
