"Hey, no fair. You're trying."
If you're a parent of a child in a Connecticut high school, and had been reluctant to allow your child to play on your child's lousy varsity football team for fear of the psychological effect a thorough whooping by a rival team would have upon your child, worry no more. The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference has hurried to the rescue. Starting this fall, if an opposing team has the gall to outscore little Johnny's team by more than 50 points, the coach of the victorious team will be automatically suspended for the next game. The CIAC has couched its new tax on effort as a "score management" policy.
