Reader's View: Let all the players play this year

Shame on all the coaches.

Reader's View.jpg

I've been to many games this year, watching my son play for Carlton. I'm very disappointed watching coaches not playing every player equally and the same amount of time. We are in a pandemic, and these coaches are concerned in wins over losses rather than having kids having fun playing.

These kids have been sitting at home for the most part — and then sitting on the bench when sports restarted. I’m sure they want to play over sitting on the bench.

This year should have been about having fun. Plus, some of these kids already played over the summer, so why not play the other ones? What would that hurt this year?

Safety reasons should have been another reason for equal playing time.

Shame on all the coaches.
