Yet it's not...only in football with the big dumb meathead coaches does it work this way. In EVERY other girls and boys sport in grade school, kids have the opportunity to play, whether through playing time rules or playing against kids of their skill level. It's the direct opposite of how life works in grade school sports. I'm not surprised this forum would say the exception is the rule. These kids are in grade school - there is zero reason for kids not to be playing. None.Yeah,kinda how life works.
Yeah, I know, "safety concerns" - BS.
Varsity IHM beat the Volunteers 48-0 this past weekend. I would venture to bet $100 that the coaches spent most of their time whining and complaining to IHM about running up the score than actually spending time getting the whole roster playing time. Hey kids, not only do you get to lose 48-0, you don't get to play either! How exciting!!!
Would love to hear the Vol parents take on this one - I know you're out there.
