What a joke. I'd be in jail if this was around a couple of years ago. Anyone who's played a sport knows trash talk is such a huge part of the game.

*sigh*....but "we're all winners when we play...."

 

I guess the next step is to stop keeping score right??

 

Maybe a public apology for being better then the other guy too......

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease


CRASHER's official list of high stick victims from this forum:
gionta182, devilsfan26 .... WHO'S NEXT??

2005 Fantasy Football League Champion... Bow to my Football knowledge !!!!!!

2003-04 NJDevs.com winner of the Masterton Award for Dedication to the Devils(still proud of that one !)

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

2008 NJDevs Stanley Cup Winner for best overall poster... where's my damn ring?

I hate what we're becoming (we've become).

 

No dodgeball, no trash talk, participation trophies for everyone. Whatever happened to "stick and stones..." I can't wait to raise a child in this nanny atmosphere.

110% agree with you...I have taught my kids to question everything and stay true to your convictions. This "PC" atmosphere is a joke.

I need to stop before I go on and on about this!

Just another example of people needing to stop themselves when they say "there ought to be a law."

perfect example with whats wrong with us as Americans.  Raising kids who aim to achieve a participation trophy has brought us to this point.

 

people consider themselves, and their kids, as self-entitled... what a shame man

That's not the point, whatsoever. Being a student-athlete is an extention of the classroom and a representation of your school. One of the main codes of conduct of being a student/athlete is sportsmanship. As a matter of fact, sportsmanship is spelled out right in the NJSIAA handbook, so this really shouldn't be news. The problem is that coaches and schools have let these smart mouth kids get out of hand with behavior and it's created a newsworthy event that shouldn't be. IMO, there are too many coaches who aren't preaching discipline and conduct and too many arrogant smart mouthed kids with parents who are just as bad encouraging it and acting with the "sense of entitlement" you speak of.

I wouldn't AT ALL be surprised if this was fueled by hurting kids' feelings just as much as it is with what you stated

That's absurd. Trash talking is not some time-honored tradition. It is completely frivolous to the competition of sports. It's the realm of a bunch of self-indulgent jerks with ego problems.

I do agree though with whoever said that this will be hell to officiate. Games could get bogged down with finger-pointing.

Does this law even have any teeth or was it just passed so they can say they tried to do something?  What is the punishment for trash talking and how is this going to be enforced?

Ref: Did I just hear you hurl a derogation towards a member of the opposing team?

Player 1: No, I said that to my teammate who totally missed that wide open net!

Player 2: No way! He said that to me! He also said this, that and the other thing!

Ref: Oh he did, did he?! You! Box!! 2 minutes unsportsmanlike! And an automatic suspension hearing with the insult and profanity police!!

 

That how I picture it going  :rolleyes:

Looks like it's time for all H.S.'s to break out the participation trophies/medals as well.

I don't see the no-trashtalking rule as a symptom of the wussification of America; I see it as a symptom of growing coarseness and indecency, and increased permissiveness from coaches and parents for allowing it. High school kids shouldn't be trashtalking, and we shouldn't need a rule to realize that.

 

The participation trophy bugs me, by the way. I detest it.

i dont know how you can try to enforce something ridiculous like this..

Completely Bullsh!t calls will be made, that's how, like getting "flagged" for pointing to God, or putting your hands up in celebration as you run into the endzone for "taunting"

 

 

 The problem is that coaches and schools have let these smart mouth kids get out of hand with behavior and it's created a newsworthy event that shouldn't be. IMO, there are too many coaches who aren't preaching discipline and conduct and too many arrogant smart mouthed kids with parents who are just as bad encouraging it and acting with the "sense of entitlement" you speak of.

You don't penalize trash talking in the game. It is the coaches place to punish it with benchings and such, not a refs job to penalize a team. sh!tty attitudes invoke Karma, and she's a real bitch. It's what makes getting over on a loud mouthed taunting prick ALL the better and satisfying. So if the "law" is punished outside the actual game, I'm all for it. But if it leads to penalties during a game, then that is horsesh!t.

 

 

That's absurd. Trash talking is not some time-honored tradition. It is completely frivolous to the competition of sports. It's the realm of a bunch of self-indulgent jerks with ego problems.

Finger pointing is a violation mister!!!

I highly doubt the punishment is an in-game penalty.  It would be ridiculous for them to write up a new rule for every single sport, and in something like baseball or tennis where there are no powerplays or free throws how can you create such a penalty?
