Sports commentary: Too inclusive

Preps playoffs need to cut back

By Mike Forster

  Welcome to preps playoff time.

It is, in fact, the most welcoming time of the year.  That’s because everyone is welcomed.

Every single preps baseball, softball and soccer team has a shot in the post-season.  That’s because every single preps baseball, softball and soccer team is invited to the playoffs.

It is my firm conviction that this approach is not in anyone’s best interest.

Inclusiveness is nice as a concept.  In practice, however, it can often send the message that rewards come cheaply.
