I coach kids mate, they're not idiots. They know what a proper medal is.
We had a mini tournament recently and were trying to give medals out but guess what none of them wanted the medals other than the team that actualy won their games!!
Kids are naturally competitive, even at the very young age where we dont keep score they know who win. In fact its the first thing they say when you ask them how they did.
" i'm offended" . You should watch the great Bill Hicks talking about people taking offense. Grow up Jack .
No kids are not idiots, adults like you and the other fool frequently are unfortunately.
Not only is coaching 10 year old children the way you advocate frowned upon, it is outlawed.
In fact competitions at U10 level in most team sports is almost non existent
Children frequently play challenges with visiting clubs, scores often not even kept, a draw frequently "declared", handshakes and off for crisps and drinks
Show me one GAA, Rugby or Soccer club anywhere that promotes an ethos at u10 similar to one you and the other lad claim?
There are none
Brian Cody is regarded as one of the most ruthless win at all costs managers ever, he hasn't a snowflake bone in his body
But if he saw you working at his club on a Saturday morning with u10 children and you displayed anything like what you are mouthing off here, he would boot your hole out the gate
If you or the other BS artist coached you would know all this
But like so much in both your lives, you instead live in some fantasy land where you BS people that you coach elite kids, weed out weakling and obese slobs and instill a killer instinct in those remaining to win at all costs
All part of your BS fantasy Trump hard man persona
But none of it grounded in reality
