I love how stark naked the division in this thread is. The people who HAVE been there and/or understand the situation that transpired, basically unanimously empathize with the IMPOSSIBLE situation BOTH coaches were in, and the players on the winning team were in.
there is NO WAY they could have come out of that game with a shining halo over their heads in the public eye.
If they played purposely not to score and such then they're belittling the other team. If they did what actually happened they're evil for playing to the best of your ability (as you should).
it was a lose/lose situation in a media sense no matter what course of action was taken.
