The Moffat County High School football team played its season-opening scrimmage Friday night. The team won three games last year and opens its 10-game season Aug. 29 at Berthoud. How many games do you predict MCHS will win this season?

My question about the High School foorball season is: What does it matter how many games they win??? Yes I know that winning is a lot more fun than losing but its the losing that makes the team mature and better equiped to handle many things in life that you may or may not have any control over. Yes in my Senior year at MOCOHI we had a winning year but it was the other years that led up to a winning season. We did make it into the state playoffs that year but were defeated in the first game. That did more to illustrate to me that you don't always win at what you are doing. The more important issue was that for me to play all sports I was required to maintain a certain GPA to participate in the sports. It was because of my love for sports that I kept my grades up which later qualified me to seek further education and become better prepared for the trials that I would face in life. So in my occupations thru life, I was qualified to have many aspects in and able to persue all the things I wanted to do. I have made my living for most of the last 50 years in many different fields. Some of which are, Medicine, Computers, auto mechanics, and I am an ordained minister. I also have the skills to do almost anything that would be done to maintain a house. I.e. Electrical, plumbing, wood work, and most everything else.
It has been my experience that when I lost I learned he most. Yes winning is more exciting but losing is the greater teachers. This is especially true if you have the right coaches that assist you in learning these lessons. So I sy "Go out and play the very best you know how and don't hold back. Obey the rules and have fun. But no matter how good you are there is always someone better than you. When that is he case congratulate the winners and learn from your contact with them. Good Luck, have a great season, win every time you can, but don't be able to hold your head up and honestly say,"I did the best i knew how."

If it doesn't matter whether we win or lose but how we played the game . . . . then why do we keep score?

That's a possibility; however, it's also possible to play better than the other team and not score as many points as they do. What do we do now?

This is not a question that should be posted on this site. Those kids are planning on winning every game, that's what you do.... you practice and play to win, one game at a time (losing happens and you learn from it). To have question like this where their "fans" can give a negative response is not a very positive way to boost their self esteem. I would hope that in the future the Craig Daily Press could have some better questions and please stay away from the ones that may have a negative impact on the youth (remember these are kids and not the Broncos) of this community. Good luck this season and give it your all and have fun!

A child's self esteem may have been impacted? - - What? Can you imagine what the world would be like if kids were never exposed to "the negative"? (Or is that the way all children are being raised now days - - - shelter them from the negative and paint a picture for them of a rosy, perfect. world). Exposure to "the negative" prepares youth for the challenges of tomorrow and (hopefully) teaches them that they can not and will not win all the time.

Upon reading the comments from others about the Bulldogs kkcmsw points out the point that the kids reading this may be given a bad impression about their skills. I do not see this in any way. Then there is TJ30066 adequately points out the fact that we all have to learn from "the Negative" Exposure This is one of the best forms of learning. As I stated in my first comment many of the best and biggest lessons came from losing and learning how to accept that. Life does not always seem fair. This does not mean that we will always face only the negative. I say learn from both and be a good loser as well as a good winner. You will go much further in life if you learn to be humble. Life is not a bed of roses. Go out play hard and I wish you the best of luck and hopefully a winning season.
