The training/effort/focus/discipline that goes into "winning" can mean a lot.

But it's not everything.

How you play effects the outcome .

Obviously, winning is important...otherwise there is no reason for a scoreboard or practicing. The object of a contest is to win. But sportsmanship is JUST as important, especially to a quality coach.

Depends on the competition. Generally, and as long as you win, I'd definitely agree! :)

Used to be. Not anymore. It's too serious now.

That's how it should be unfortunately you get overzealous moms and dads who feel their children are all superstars & will get a scholarship or play pro something. That's the travesty of it all. Sportsmanship, sadly is often overlooked.

Apparently, the conservative core of the country pretty strictly disagrees with this statement, at least as regards the lower classes. If you've lost, you obviously didn't play the game correctly. Because somehow everyone who plays "right" wins.

Even if it's not true, it's better than telling people they can get by without trying.

And apparently the liberal core believes that the end justifies the means so it's ok to lie steal and cheat for the cause.

I'd rather try my hardest and lose than to not try at all and win. Democrats would be wise to learn that lesson.

Sort of, but mostly disagree. I don't think it matters if you win or lose OR how you play the game. It's called a game for a reason. It only matters that you have fun. If it isn't fun, it isn't much of a game - or you aren't doing it right.

Can't have fun without the glory of winning (;

Both. Good sportsmanship is very important, but winning is awesome! I do not condone winning at all costs, but I do think one should try to win. BTW, good sportsmanship is just as important for the winners to have.

We keep up with the score for a reason

Agree. Unless you're the Chicago Blackhawks playing a Game 7 in the Stanley Cup Western Conference Finals...

Have you looked at the list of recommended users lately. Take a look at number four :-)

I'm sorry, Miss Em. But, if ANY team had to take the Western Conference from the Champs, I'm glad it was the Kings. Now, I take Kings over Rangers. Are ya with me?...

Depends on the stakes of the game. Chess with my son.... sure. Blackhawks!

I agree as long as how I play the game results in winning. ????

Winning by cheating or using underhanded tactics isn't as satisfying as winning with skill and experience

One of the greatest axioms of all time, to comfort all those who've ever lost. :)
