A WA junior football association has intervened to protect the fragile psyche’s of today’s disappointment-intolerant kiddies:
Wins have become losses in a junior football league where the balance between participation and development has finally reached breaking point.
Coaches and parents are furious with the Southern Districts Junior Football Association for reversing the results of two games last month in which margins exceeded 60 points.
The SDJFA’s unprecedented actions were backed by the WA Football Commission which introduced a Statewide junior margin cap of 60 points in 2008.
Defeated teams aren’t losers, they’re victims.
