Usually we try to celebrate great young athletes and their prodigious potential. In Arkansas, one youth football league is instituting a dramatic rule to hold back its brightest star, all in an attempt to level the playing field for other competitors.
Here we go again. The PC crap is out of control. In other words, no one can be better than anyone else. When and where will this stop?
Where is it said that nobody can be better than someone else? I noticed this asinine trend for a number of years now. There have been Little League baseball games and football games, etc. where “they” don’t allow a score, so that no one gets their little feelings hurt. As if the losing team doesn’t know that they lost!!! Of course, it’s the PC crowd, in other words, socialists, marxists, and commies, who want everybody to be alike – no one smarter, no one more athletic, or artistically inclined, or whatever. You get the drift.
What happens when the snot-nosed libs manage to squelch the little guy’s incentive, and convince him that he isn’t better at football than some of the others? Hey libs – that’s life!!! Life is a competition! That’s how you get ahead in this world. That’s how really good athletes go from high school, to a good university, to the NFL (if we’re still talking about football), although I include other sports as well AND artistic endeavors too.
I’m an Alabama Crimson Tide fan. How would we have managed to achieve 13 National Championships if we’d “held back” our best players to “level the playing field for other competitors?” Huh? That goes for other colleges and their teams as well. I’m just using what I know because it’s easier.
Meanwhile back at the ranch:
This little guy in the article is eleven years old and now “the powers that be” are trying to hold him back. What if they succeed in putting him down so that he gives up? Is that what these morons want? Probably! It’s high time that the parents get together and stop this nonsense.
