I know that micheal Jordan's love for the game would not let another team score just so the game could be closer. He would continue to play hard
Tiger woods wouldn't hit the ball in the water if he was up -20 to 0
Or in hockey to pull the goalie if your up by 8 goals
All im saying is this was a tier one game, so expect tier 1 competition[/quote]
Michael Jordan would never be in the game playing if he was up 30 in a game let alone 100.
Golf is a bad example for the point your trying to prove
I dont know much about the strategy of hockey but im sure there are ways of letting up in hockey without sacrificing hard work in a game. I know in basketball there are ways ie bench players, taking of a press, implementing a 3 pass rule before shooting at the basket, not allow fast breaking. These are all things the coach could have done during the game and form what I understand all he did was take off the press.
During a D'youville girls game this year at Mount Carmel for the Rimrocker the DY girls were hammering a team. Coach Zoff told certain girls on the starting line that they were not aloud to score a basket in the second half. He put most of his bench after the first quarter with 1 or 2 starters stayin with them. He also took his press/ trap off. DY ending up winning by maybe 40 or 50 i cant remember. He did this because he analyzed his competition and realised there was no sense in humiliating those girls.
Why couldn't the coach of the winning team take these measures? He must of known regardless who was playing from his team they were gonna win.
On the other hand,
I think this story is making major headlines because the team didnt score a basket. A few years back either Henry Carr senior boys or Pickering senior boys crushed another team by a huge amount. I think it had to of been atleast an 80 point spread. What is the difference between that blowout and this blowout?
Who the hell scheduled this game or for a second, thought that this team was good enough to play in the top tier?
