When I was a boy in the 1960's it was considered disgraceful to attract attention to yourself instead of crediting the team. It was also frowned upon to taunt an opponent. Those days are gone. Even in the 80's, when you were playing, it had changed a lot. People were doing touchdown dances and trash talking. This worked its way to the HS level and even into pee-wee. This culture is damaging to the individual and, I believe, results in unhappiness. But still most of the kids playing are excellent young men
Look at everything now in our society, we have become such a myopic and rude society. For example, on this website, Facebook, etc, people say the meanest things to complete strangers. If you make a spelling mistake, voice your opinion, or anything you have people that are just so angry they will say something mean to shame someone they don't even know. If you don't have anything nice to say and someone is not attacking you than dont say anything. If you feel the need to say something at least do it respectfully. Act like you would if you were face to face with someone unless you talk to people in person like you do from the safety of your phone or computer. I have made an effort to change because I did it that stuff too, but now I'm a daddy and am trying live and act in a way I want my son to be and am trying to set a positive example. I want to leave this world with a good child, human, and man.
