Coach Suspended For Winning
« on: February 25, 2017, 10:58:03 AM »
Sooo, it's not about winning? :lol: :lol: :lol:      “They should feel sorry for his team, which isn’t learning the game the right way.”

SAN BERNARDINO – A Southern California high school basketball coach has been suspended and faces accusations of mercilessly running up the score after his team won a game 161-2, one of the most lopsided scores in state history.

Arroyo Valley High girls coach Michael Anderson was suspended for two games after the victory last week against Bloomington High.

Anderson said that he wasn’t trying to run up the score or embarrass the opposition. His team had won four previous games by at least 70 points, and Bloomington had already lost a game by 91.

“The game just got away from me,” Anderson told the San Bernardino Sun Friday. “I didn’t play any starters in the second half. I didn’t expect them to be that bad. I’m not trying to embarrass anybody.”

He says if he had it to do again, he’d have played only reserves after the first quarter, or “I wouldn’t play the game at all.”

But Bloomington coach Dale Chung says Arroyo Valley used a full-court press for the entire first half to lead 104-1 at halftime.

“People shouldn’t feel sorry for my team,” Chung said. “They should feel sorry for his team, which isn’t learning the game the right way.”

Anderson has served one game of the suspension, a game his team won 80-19. He’ll return after sitting out one more.

“He’s a great X’s and O’s coach,” Chung said. “Ethically? Not so much. He knows what he did was wrong.”

He should has ask if the other team would like to use his reserves team after the first quarter.    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well, the left thing to do, would have been for his team to either give half their points to the other team, or just start sinking buckets in their net.

In related news, a recently discovered missive, written by FDR, has been unearthed in the Presidential Archives:

"My fellow Americans, only now can I express my deepest regret that I found it necessary to needlessly embarrass the entire AXIS ALLIANCE. It would have been more fair, more balanced, if Imperial Japan had been allowed to maintain control over its Home Islands, and perhaps, the Philippines as well. I express the deepest regret at what was, at heart, a racist and unbalanced decision, which, as a Caucasian Male, I am prone to do."

I am sure the other team would be very happy if they only lost by 100 to 2.   :rolleyes:   

They should get a trophy for losing by only 159 points. OUCH!!
