Win By More Than Five Points and You Lose??

I like Canada because they have good Sno-Cones, but Canadians are apparently a bunch of knickers-in-a-bunch pantywaist sissies, and they don't know crap about raising kids. An Ottawa kids soccer league now has a rule that if you beat a team by more than five points you'll automatically forfeit the game.
(National Post) In yet another nod to the protection of fledgling self-esteem, an Ottawa children’s soccer league has introduced a rule that says any team that wins a game by more than five points will lose by default.

The Gloucester Dragons Recreational Soccer league’s newly implemented edict is intended to dissuade a runaway game in favour of sportsmanship. The rule replaces its five-point mercy regulation, whereby any points scored beyond a five-point differential would not be registered.

Kevin Cappon said he first heard about the rule on May 20 — right after he had scored his team’s last allowable goal. His team then tossed the ball around for fear of losing the game.
Gimme a frickin' break.


  1. Just another lesson for the kids, showing them that if they suck bad enough in their life, someone else can always be made to pay.

  2. I guesse in Canada, winning isn't's nothing!
