A competing athlete who cheats and prevails is not a sportsman. He is just a cheater, pretending to be a winner.

So true..... Competing in any sport is about what YOU personnally achieve, not actually winning (thats what I think anyway)

Team sports offer so many lessons in life. Personal achievement is certainly near rhe top of the list. It also teaches, in the long run, that fair play is more important than trophies. HOW we win or lose will remain with us forever.

Does this have anything to do with a recent conversation?

Gordon said...

I would say.....yes.

Oh come on.... I would say that Brady was just standing his ground and letting his opponant know that he was not going to back down and take anything from anyone. Nothing wrong with aggressiveness

The post could not have been about Brady, because his team did not prevail. Hmmm....it must have been about the other guy.
