Trophy Nation: How handing out trophies, regardless of success, may cause failure.

Commence the pussyfication of america. 

 

I believe masses are pushed to hand out trophies because of the parents, while they don't understand the fundamental and priceless value of losing.

I'm 30 years old and have never gotten a trophy in anything.  If I ever coach a kids team, I'm going to lay out all of the trophies on a bed and lay naked with them for a while.

You're 30 too?  I got a few trophies, luckily, now and back them I didn't give two shits about them.

We didn't give our flag football team trophies this past season. The little sons of bitches lost in the title game. Bling has to be earned.

In the 80's they had bigger trophies for the winning teams and that is what we wanted. We wanted to win every week and usually did.  I couldn't have cared less about the tiny participatory trophies. I wanted that BASYL (Brandon Area Youth Soccer League) championship trophy.

I'm pretty sure there needs to be a manly men Hall of Fame.  You, Derek Jeter (he gives baskets of gifts to his females after he bangs them, then sends them on the way), Luke, Ron Burgundy, and Charlie Sheen all need statues in that Hall of Fame.

oh yeah, I wanted the tall trophies.  Whenever I was given a little @ss trophy, I didn't give 2 $hits about it.

When I grew up we only got trophies for actual awards... like having the highest batting average or winning the championship... 

 

When my kids were growing up playing soccer and basketball, all the kids got some sort of trophy and I never agreed with that.

 

Teaching kids that everyone is a winner is not a great plan imo.  It's not real life and makes a for a rude awakening later on...

Tell them they are worthless and make them run sprints until they puke.
