A youth coach in Philadelphia is facing a $500 fine for running up the score and beating a team 30-0. Per nbcphiladelphia.com...
quote:

Kyle Williams told NBC10 he knew he was dangerously close to breaking the rules Saturday morning when his youth football team, the Conshohocken Golden Bears, went up 30 to 0. The rules of the Keystone Sports League, which features kids no older than 7 years of age, prevent a team from going up by more than 30 points.

"Less than two minutes left I called a timeout because I wanted to pull the starters off the field," Williams said. "I put kids in there who normally never played."

When one of the second stringers, a 5-year-old boy, got the ball he ran toward the end zone as Williams ran along the sideline and repeatedly yelled for him to fall down. The boy still scored however, putting the team up 36 to 0.

Now Williams is facing a possible $500 fine and a 2-game suspension.

"I have three sons," Williams said. "I'm not gonna tell my son, especially if he's running the ball, 'Don't go out there and give it your all.'"
Williams’ brother-in-law, former Eagle WR Torrey Smith, jumped on Twitter with his thoughts...

In the middle of blowing a team out the red cane over to our huddle during a timeout and said “DO NOT give the ball to 28 again!” Fair enough. He already had seven TDs. No fine. No quitting. They just had to stop someone else. We were up like 63-6 at that point.

He should start a Gofundme account. Guaranteed to make minimum 5k.The $4,500 is his bonus for a shutout...

I'm walking away before I pay that fine. And the League Commissioners should write a new book titled "How to Not Get Volunteer Youth Football Coaches".

And the kids hit the snack bar after the game with kids from the other team and didn't give a crap. Parents suck these days.

I once coached a JV team to a 70-0 score against Newman! Loved every minute of it!

Sportsmanship has its place; that seems all too easily forgotten these days. And it works both ways - being a good sport in victory keeps the opponent a good sport in defeat.

36-0 is not a "blowout".

This is what happens when we live in a world, where everyone gets a trophy.

You are correct. Kids need to learn how to lose as well. While I don't agree with some teams that run up the score, this is ridiculous. People are way to soft. Suck it up and move on.

Yea last thing Im going to do is pay someone a portion of my paycheck that I earn to support my family, because some 5 year old kids scored too many points and made the other 5 year old kids feel sad. Try and sue me for it.
