I didn't see that game but I do know that we have an imbalance in our league (it's basically Pickering, ND, Dunbarton then the rest...although JCR and Pineridge have come along since the beginning of the season) where we play some really weak teams.
In the past we have ordered the kids to make 10 passes before they shoot, stick to a weak zone, sit the starters of course, etc. I will admit that sometimes you get a little caught up, especially when coaching by yourself, and forget what the score is...I have had one of our seniors come over and say, "Mr. Dougall you're up by 30 take your press off". I felt bad about that one. The important thing here is our kids recognize that it is unsportsmanlike to embarrass another team...especially in our gym as they are our guests.
I think this teaches or kids how to be somewhat humble, disciplined and more mature. For me, it would reflect poorly on myself, my team and my school if we were to treat other teams unkindly.
