I was on the losing side in a match in Under 13s in about 1993 or so, where the final score was 313 to 0... League's biggest-ever winning margin. I got sent off during the 3rd quarter (bit of a hothead back then). Not proud of it, so I guess I learnt something...

Wow Richo! Must have used up all that anger early on.

Gee didn't pick that either, I always thought Aaron was the good cop to my bad cop in the early days of WFN.

We're well off topic now, but anyway, I was only sent off the once. Accidentally whacked someone high in a tackle, they attacked me, I fought back, both got sent off for 10 mins, with him threatening to kill me when we returned, I think literally. Fortunately he appeared to wander off and smoke something "medicinal" and when we came back on he was remarkably chilled out.

Haha... yep, a bit off-topic. I calmed down once I got to about 16 or 17, but got sent off quite a bit playing junior footy and (especially) hockey.

But back to the actual topic - If it happens every now and again that's life, you can deal with it. But it's crushing for kids playing in a comp where you have those kinds of scorelines on a weekly basis, and not much better for adults if you're trying to attract people to a club.

It's been nasty in the past at the IC when you have matches like NZ beating (I think) India by about 30 goals to zip, very glad they've used divisions this time around.
