Mind numbingly… LIBERAL. And it reeks of the kind of thinking that increasingly comes out of our progressive government schools. reports on a story at the state-owned CBC/National Post News and Advertising Cooperative, this week:

Canadian Youth Soccer League: Winning by More Than Five Counts as a Loss

A Canadian youth soccer league is taking heat after introducing a new rule that says any team that wins a game by more than five points will actually lose by default.

… But some players and parents say the new rule will only keep these children from reaching their full potential as players and coddle sore losers.

“They should be saying anything is possible. If we can get five goals really fast, well, so can the other team,” player Kevin Cappon, 17, told the Post. “People grow in adversity… 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.”

Coppon’s father, Bruce Cappon, agreed.

“Heaven forbid when these kids get into the real world. They won’t be prepared to deal with the competition out there,” he told the Post.

The league has 3,000 children ranging from four to 18 years old.

According to the new rules, coaches are encouraged to take measures like making players kick with their weaker foot, moving players out of their usual positions, or taking players off the field entirely if they have a strong team, the Post reported…

And today Glenn Beck, on his radio show, talked about it.  It went something like this:

Why Canada sucks…

And why we are on the fast track to suckdom.  … A Canadian youth soccer league and the new rule they introduced. Any team that wins a game by more than 5 points will lose by default. Yes, you read that correctly. And yes, Canada sucks and because of stuff like this will continue to suck for a very long time. But we’re not far behind!  …

I couldn’t agree more.
