Undefeated Youth Football Team Banned From Playoffs - WDAF. This is just horrendous.
After going undefeated (6-0) and getting ready for the playoffs the coaches received a message from the league saying they weren't invited to the playoffs because the other teams thought they were too good and they couldn't compete.
This isn't teaching the kids anything. In fact, it's teaching them that if they are good, they can't go forward. It's teaching them to be mediocre.
This society needs to realize that giving everyone a medal or keeping kids out because they are too good is just wrong. People need to learn how to lose and these parents who run this league are teaching kids the wrong thing.
This kids worked their tails off during the season and should be allowed to play in the playoffs. They played by the rules and should be allowed to play. Keeping them out is just wrong.
Kudos to the other teams for inviting them to play additional games and the great attitudes of their coaches.
