i get tired of equating the score of a game to sportsmanship. I don't think running up the score is bad if the coach is putting in players that haven't had much playing time or trying different positions. This was a little over the top but I am not sure that i would call it poor sportsmanship. I think it is more embarrassing to the other team when you just tell them to play down to the opponent and not try. The kids probably do not care about the score as much as the parents and coaches. When you tell kids to not do their best that is poor coaching. If the objective is to score and when you tell kids to stop playing to score, the other coach should forfeit. I fail to see why the opposing coach didn't forfeit if he felt that his team was getting mistreated.

The winner and second place of every Stage are automatically tested. Others are tested randomly. Worth noting in this context that he'd never won a stage before. True but he did finish second in the first long time trial so he should have been tested on stage 7.
