Children Win a soccer game by more than five points and they lose, Ottawa league says

In yet another nod to the protection of fledgling self-esteem, an Ottawa children’s soccer league has introduced a rule that says any team that wins a game by more than five points will lose by default.

The Gloucester Dragons Recreational Soccer league’s newly implemented edict is intended to dissuade a runaway game in favour of sportsmanship. The rule replaces its five-point mercy regulation, whereby any points scored beyond a five-point differential would not be registered.

Kevin Cappon said he first heard about the rule on May 20 — right after he had scored his team’s last allowable goal. His team then tossed the ball around for fear of losing the game.

He said if anything, the league’s new rule will coddle sore losers.

“They should be saying anything is possible. If we can get five goals really fast, well, so can the other team,” said Kevin, 17, who has played in the league for five years. “People grow in adversity, they don’t really get worse…. I think you’ll see more leadership skills being used if a losing team tries to recuperate than if they never got into that situation at all.”

Kevin’s father, Bruce Cappon, called the rule ludicrous.

“I couldn’t find anywhere in the world, even in a communist country, where that rule is enforced,” he said.

Mr. Cappon said the organization is trying to “reinvent the wheel” by fostering a non-competitive environment.

We all know, unless one is a leftist snowflake, that competition is what advances the human race. 
It starts at a young age and continues into adulthood, it makes people try harder when they do not succeed.
With this character, medicines, products, freedoms are enhanced and everyone benefits.
One does not have to shove winning in the oppositions face when they loose, we can be graceful which will promote them to try even harder the next time, but as we have seen with this snowflake policies lately, the idea of eliminating competition have produce a generation that needs, crying rooms, puppies and play-dough safe space to deal with a loss...
Not a good road to follow considering the shape of this world at the moment, actually, it makes for a weakened nation and the west in on a path to a fall that will last generations to come...
Our enemies couldn't defeat us militarily, so we will do it to ourselves from the inside.
How is that any good for democracy?

This is ridiculous. So if a team is up by 5 points what do they do? Do they let the other team get a few ponts? How does that make the other team feel, knowing that they have to be given points just to keep the game going? How is that right? And what happens if later the losing team gets a few points and wins? Technically the other team would have won if they didnt let the losing team get a few points... this is wrong on so many levels.
