I'm nominating one of my son's coaches and one of my co-workers.
Last month DS was ill during on of the team tournaments and didn't go. This is individual sport like diving, so the only consequence of his missing is potentially reducing the overall team score. His coach is making him sit out this month's tournament because if he was really a "team player" he'd have played ill. So she'd rather he get on a bus for a 90 minute ride and expose all her players to illness during flu season rather than have him miss one tournament.
My co-worker was telling me that his two boys placed high in their state championship competition this past month in a very close contact sport, think wrestling. His youngest (around 9) "came in 4th in state and probably would have placed hire is he hadn't been competing with the flu and 103 degree fever." Yeah, it would have sucked for his kid to miss it, but we aren't talking about scholarship qualifications or even Jr. Olympics. But his kid getting to compete was more important than any concern for the 5 or 6 other competitors his son came into very close contact with during that day.
edited because an "8" next to a ")" becomes a
. so I figure around 9 is just as good.
