  4. “Coach Smith is an idiot and blew the game. He needs to stop playing losers and let the stars stay in. He is too worried about pleasing parents.”
  5. “Coach Smith should have called a timeout in the last thirty seconds to draw up a play. He needed to refocus his players so they could have made the game winner.”
