Lesson: The Coach that Cheats…Harms the Whole Team.

Nobody Cares

Anybody that has had a kid in Little Leagues knows the scenario of cheating all too well. So, I’m sorry. The all black team that won the Little League highest honor last year, and they won it by stacking the deck with kids that were not suppose to be on that team…should lose those trophies.

Unfair you say? The adults did it? Mmmm………

According to my brother, the decision by the little league officials was right: You won the game boys…you have that honor, but you don’t get the title.

The kids won’t care he says. They won. It’s not their fault.Obama and little league

My brother has raised his son through the league, and he and I were both raised in a different America. The coaches played by the rules. But not today. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard my brother talk about five-year olds playing against kids twice their sizes by 100 pounds. Or teams with sixteen-year olds playing against 13-year olds. The kids try, but they can’t compete.

Guess what? The coaches have been doing this all over America. They go and get the best talent to make it to the top. Little league has become VERY competitive.

It’s a shame. The kids know they can’t beat the stacked team. And don’t be fooled, ALL the parents are aware of what’s going on too. The team that won the little league trophy was from Chicago.

That should tell you all you need to know.

But today, I did not hear ONE person anywhere say that the kids should forfeit the little league trophy.

The reason? It’s not the kids fault. Okay, It’s not, I agree. BUT…..

Let’s assume that the kids didn’t know that some of the kids on the team were NOT from the same place. That the coach had handpicked winners from around the area, and broke the rules.

The very fact is, rules were broken. It doesn’t matter if it’s not their fault, if everyone forgives the kids because their black or they’re just kids, than the message is:

You CAN cheat. Adults can cheat. If they get caught, nothing happens to them.

Jesse Jackson has called anyone a racist who thinks that rules were broken.

Please. How about playing another card…like the joker.

The team that lost, should receive that trophy, with an apology from the coach.

And then the kids on that team would learn a lesson about cheating. They would never forget it, and it would make better citizens of them all. They will see what happens when “leaders” who cheat hurt the people¬†they are supposed to be leading, and they hurt the citizen…by cheating.

You either have rules, or you don’t.

IN America, cheating is not only allowed, it’s admired. Obama cheats every single day. He stacks the deck. And America has suffered dearly for it.

Anyway, let’s hope the officials at Little League stick to their decision.

(Thanks to my brother for his excellent take on it, and for making me see all sides.)
