Give yourselves the chance to be heros
- May 16, 2018
Good point but in the same vein would you still get morally outraged by other drivers not buying a ticket ? I think this debate has shown that for a lot of people (75% of voters) winning the league is all that matters and if that means committing professional fouls to do it then so be it.Those taking a moral stance on this, that's your choice and I assume you live your lives under that moral code.
Here's a question for you.....
You park in town, buy your parking ticket and go about your shopping.
You get held up and arrive back at your car 20 minutes after your ticket has expired.
Do you go and find a traffic warden, tell him you cheated the system and demand a penalty notice?
Yep, thought not.
Where it gets a bit convoluted is when some of us take the moral high ground over city doing the same thing albeit in a more systematic way. We seem to be saying it’s ok to commit professional fouls in the heat of the moment but not ok to coach your players to do it. A bit like the difference between manslaughter and murder in the criminal code, it’s the planning that causes the outrage not the actual act.
In answer to the question, I would not to win the league that way and I hope we don’t descend to city’s level out of desperation. As I said before in an earlier post, doing the wrong things for what you perceive to be the right reasons is a very slippery slope.
