There is a price for channeling your team pride that way instead of towards the next pancake Jordan. The price is a 15-yard penalty, and if a professional a fine, and if grievous enough a disqualification. Is it worth it if your team is behind? If your team is ahead, think it is better to walk off with the victory and say a few words after the game than to jeopardise your position and give into the other sore losers right? I know I know, we all have limits and easier said than done, but think about it eh?
In my opinion the league should institute in between those penalties a suspension, or "sin-bin" penalty, for players to sit out the rest of a half, or for the next half or next game's half if such conduct is overly heated within 5:00 of the end of a half, in lieu of disqualification as an additional disincentive that is more effective that a fine after the game is over. No kid likes to be told to go to the corner and not be able to play right now right?
Now Jordan did you hear Dunigan's description of the smell within the trenches on X and short by the second half? It sounds like a more terrible place to be than I had thought! :lol: Even his colleague wanted to run away right then and there! Dunigan stated those were not fond memories he had. Anyway please elabourate sometime?
