>>> The little boy nodded in the affirmative.

>>> "Do you understand that what matters not whether

>>>
>>> The little boy nodded yes.

>>> "So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know,
>>>
>>> when a penalty is called you shouldn't
>>>
>>> argue, curse, attack the referee, or call him a
>>> pecker-head.
>>> Do you understand all that?"
>>>
>>> Again the little boy nodded
>>>
>>> The coach continued, "And when I call you off
>>> the
>>> field
>>>
>>> so that another boy gets a chance to play, it's
>>> not good
>>> sportsmanship to call your coach "a dumb
>>> ********," is it?''
>>>
>>> Again the little boy nodded.
>>>
>>> "Good," said the coach. "Now go over there
