A Minnesota basketball team was bounced from a league for being too good.
The coach of the Rogers Area Youth Basketball Association says his team was forced out of the Northwest Suburban Basketball League, Fox 9 reports.
“We found out Friday at lunchtime that we’re not going to be allowed because according to the league our girls were too talented,” coach Jason Hanauska told the station.
The team received a letter that stated the girls teams was too talented and other teams don’t want to play to their higher standards.
It would sort of be like telling the Carolina Panthers they aren’t allowed to play in the Super Bowl because they are too good.
The coach hopes the league will reverse their decision – but it’s unlikely.
“Are we supposed to play worse just to make them happy?” team member Tessa McCarthy told the station.
Welcome to the era of entitlement, folks. Everyone’s a winner. Everyone gets a trophy. No hurt feelings.
On the flip side – we’re quickly becoming a nation that celebrates inferiority. A nation of losers.
