    The coach sounds like a d-bag who takes the game way to seriously. There's no problem keeping up a 100-0 loss record and still continuing to play, but chastising and refusing to make contact with the winning team afterwards is a little extreme. Also, why are the winners made out to be the bad guys in a game that is naturally competitive? A basketball court isn't the place to look for mercy or sympathy.

    I'd assume Mojo; but I haven't seen him for a while.

    Anyone else think Jakko is slowly eating his peers one at a time?


    On a related note: This is even worse than the Panthers playoffs loss this year.

    I don't really see what could've been done about it. Basketball isn't something like hockey or soccer, where you can actually let up the pressure and not score. Would the learning-challenged girls have felt better if it was obvious that the other team was going easy on them? I think not.

    Coach needs to be less srs.

    Hmmm, 100-0 is kinda taking the piss, but that's how it goes. People are too obsessed with making sure all the kids feel okay about playing and stressing crap like 'everyone is a winner'. I think this is great. The kids will have learned a valuable lesson - they aren't all special and they aren't all winners.

    You're supposed to play your best. The other team is supposed to play their best.

    When you're both playing your best and one team gets owned, well that's called LIFE. Get over it, get better, and continue on.
