    No doubt there some dad/coaches who have no business coaching little kids. I do think there are many life lessons to be learned in organized sports that can benefit men and women later on in life. Back to the mercy rule I just think it teaches kids that it is alright to quit. When things look bad don't worry just quit. I would much rather lose than be a quitter

    a totally different point from the one made by the poster who said that it teachs you about the consequences of not working hard enough.

    the implication that losing teaches you about the consequences of not working hard enough is crap

    As I said earlier, my post was not just about working hard. That is certainly part of it but that's not nearly all of it. This question has already been answered in this thread. I see no reason to rehash it.

    His post discussed learning the consequences of not working hard. I was not responding to your post.

    I think the point is that the stupid phrase "Learn to work harder" is just that....a stupid phrase as it pertains to winning and losing. It doesn't matter sometimes how hard you work (Not to say that you shouldn't, because you should always no matter what) the other guys are simply better.
