    No Balls

    Youth soccer league: No balls, scoring to halt 'negative effects of competition' - Washington Times
    New Sport? Wat?
    Lucky these were soccer balls and not bballs.

    Anyone sign their kids up for this type of sport?

    Soccer fans love it! This dramatically increases the chances for a tie!

    You mean the attempt to take away soccer goals as well and just making it a rectangular field to eliminate any chance of winning or losing is false, too?

    Yep, got me good there. The best satire always barely skirts reality. It was somewhat believable, based on other ridiculous stuff people have done to protect their kid's tender hearts My kids were in a soccer league where they removed the goal keepers so everyone could score more easily so even the crappy players could feel good about themselves. We changed to a real league instantly.

    I don't know what age you're talking about but the youngest divisions often don't have goal keepers. Anything past 8 years old is pretty ridiculous though.

    Re: No Balls

    Yeah, I'm confused. Is not playing with a ball suppose to make it less interesting? That's hard to do.

    Before opening this thread I was wondering why the thread wasn't in the In-State Rivals forum.

    Do they officially not have goal keepers, or do the kids playing goalie just wander off to where the ball is due to low attention spans?
