Marxism at its finest

if your team wins by more than 5 points, you lose, believe it or not, that’s what this soccer league in Canada is doing.

1. can we eliminate the last place trophies? Getting a reward for being sorry isn’t going to teach you anything.

2. Can we get rid of the mercy rule? Sometimes a good beatdown is what everyone deserves. It teaches you hey, play better or you get the snot beat out of you. One of my favourite moments in college football was when the Gators were up 60 something to 3, and they kept passing the football. If you can’t stop the other team, that’s on you. A little beatdown never hurt anyone. (And I say this as a kid who competed in recreational sports)
