No I don't think a team should run up a score but I also think it wrong to whine about having the score run up on you. Bad form, and whiney. The other guy’s a jerk, deal with it and get over it or sit in the mud and cry about how mean they are.
You are right, I haven't seen Sultan play. I'd like to but I only get to see Westside teams in the playoffs. In judging how good Sultan, and for that matter the rest of the Cascade publics are, is how they've faired against teams I have seen or have comparative game with. I've seen ATM, B-E, Meridian and Lynden. I thought that those were very good football teams but not a class a part from the Pullmans and Prossers and Othellos and .... If ATM is in fact as you claim that much better than Sultan and ATM is not any better than other good programs then it isn't unfair to believe they are better than Sultan simply by that fact that they are better and not that they have some unfair advantage.
You post unfair rules as the reason ATM is that much better than Sultan. Yet those unfair rules don't make ATM better than other good programs. This is aside from the rules you post only being rules in your own mind not in the handbook. All this leads me to believe with a high degree of confidence that Sultan isn't a very good football program.
Ask yourself this, if ATM went defunct and its football program ceased to exist how much better would that make Sultan's football program? And remember a program is more than coaches and players, it is the infrastructure and environment that develops players and coaches from the earliest peewee league until the last game of their senior year. And by developing coaching I mean that in good programs by the time a kid see the HS head coach he/she has already had the majority of all the coaching they ever get.
