Two schools of thought on running up the score

By Mike Forster

 

An acquaintance of mine happens to coach a soccer team.  That's not odd; I happen to have at least a dozen such acquaintances.  A couple of times this season this particular coach has caught grief for "running up the score."

Apparently, his team violated some unwritten rule about how many times it can put the ball in the net.

This phenomenon isn't limited to the game of soccer.  It seems as though such finger-pointing takes place in baseball, softball, basketball and football.
