    Sounds more like the kid should sue his dad for poor genetics.

      must be a liberal. they always whine because in life there are some losers and that's just not fair.

      maybe he should tell officials not to keep score as well...that may damage the psyche of this poor youth should they lose a game.

      and what is this kid doing playing on a "team" anyway? not every kid can make "the team" which once again could hurt the fragile mindset of a young mind because they weren't chosen to participate.

      we will gladly send representatives from the ACLU to canada to investigate this travesty. something like this could have worldwide ramifications if it is not nipped in the bud, and soon!!!!!

      I'll post, You argue.

        Guess he's not being considered for the Sportsmanship Award either, huh? You know, if parents would act right, kids' sports would be so much better.

        I had to explain to my oldest son about life not being fair one time. He was on a Little League baseball team as the starting leftfielder & back-up 3rd baseman. His 1st game we were late getting to the field in time for warmups & the coach benched him & wouldn't let him start. It was our fault for being late, the kid didn't drive. I appealed the decision with the coach but he said it was a long standing rule of his & he put him in the game in the 3rd inning. Then, two games later, the 3rd baseman was running late so my son warmed up at 3rd. Just before the game started the 3rd baseman arrived & was promptly put in at his position & my son moved back out to left field. My son was crushed. At that age infield is about all that gets to play & he wanted his shot at playing 3rd. He wanted to quit but we wouldn't let him & told him that he would have to play out the season. The next year he came back under the same coach but things were not much better so he quit playing baseball after that. The really bad thing was that the coach was a fellow officer I worked with & he still treated him that way. Now, my son was not all-star quality but he did have a strong arm & fairly good bat. It was a hard lesson at an early age & he didn't understand but we certainly didn't run to a lawyer about it.

          I think Dad maybe needs to spend less time working on Steven's slapshot and more time teaching good sportsmanship. You know, an MVP award isn't necessarily awarded just for scoring the most points -- it's for being the best team-member. With the kind of stance they're taking, I wouldn't be surprised if the kid isn't much of a team player.

          Reminds me of an old joke:
          "You know, there's no 'I' in TEAM."
          "Yeah, well there sure as he11 is a 'M-E'!"

          Dad's an *** and kid's a petulant brat.
          Caution and worry never accomplished anything.

            The Most Valuable Player isn't always indictive of athletic achievements. If this kid has even a smidgeon of his dad's attitude, no wonder he didn't get it!

              They both need to grow up mentally. Disappointments happen. It's time to get over it; get a life.
