Michigan High School Protesting Game Over 'Sportsmanship' Because Player Scored 16 Goals

A high school in Michigan is crying in thier in Sprite after an opposing player scored 16 goals on them. So now, instead of learning how to play defense, they're protesting. Smart move, coach...
quote:

Kevin Hubbell of Benzie Central, one of the best players in the state, scored 16 goals against Kingsley. The Sept. 29 game was declared over at halftime — a 17-0 wipeout of a winless team.

That’s why some people are upset.

“To go after a personal record like that at the cost of another team’s dignity was a little uncalled for,” Kingsley coach Tim VanWingerden said. “Soccer is not the right place for that. Soccer is a gentleman’s sport.”

if the team is playing competitive sports, they can't blame the other team for being too good. Stop complaining and focus on playing better. To me, it's MORE insulting for the better team to just stop trying to score. I'd get more pissed about that.

Lame... If this was 5-10 year olds there might be a point here... At the HS level, they're big enough to be responsible for the result.

It appears their protest began before the initial whistle.

It's pretty douchey for just one player to score that many for himself...they should have sent him a strong message after number 7 or so.

Oh man, I just looked it up and see he did all of that before halftime...wow, guess I can't blame the kid.

If I was on the opposing team, that dude would still not be able to walk!

why? You can't stop him within the rules of the game, so you want to hurt him? That's pathetic.

Exactly. Few hard tackles and he would stop showboating. The team whining has no pride apparently.

Soccer, the sport that introduced America to the participation trophy and now this. No wonder so many Americans call it the communist sport.
