The Sissifying Of America Continues

The Sissifying Of America Continues

The final score was 61-13 as the boys of fall in Nassau County, NY, left it all on the field.  Two undefeated teams heading toward playoffs, the Plainedge High Red Devils and the Cyclones of South Side High School, met on the grid to battle for division leader.

Then a fourth-quarter touchdown by the Red Devils violated a Nassau County sportsmanship rule designed to prevent dominant football teams from embarrassing lesser programs and sent coach Ron Shaver into a one-game suspension.

According to Nassau’s “Section 8 Lopsided Score Committee,” you can win – but not by more than 42 points.  That seems like a ridiculous, arbitrary number for an equally ridiculous policy geared to satisfy the participation-trophy crowd.

The wussification of America continues. I mean c'mon, it is just a game.

I see this as equivalent to nullifying wins as punishment in college football; you can refuse to officially recognize that a team lost by over 42 points, but it happened just the same.
