The problem is is that it's not one or two guys, it's all up and down the line-up.

20 players have taken at least one minor, 15 have taken at least 2. Those are ridiculous numbers, especially this early in the season.
I don't disagree with any of this. My point is trying to find a solution may be a pointless endeavor. The coach's remark last night that he was going to punish them in practice for the penalties is silly. That could work if was aggression or shenanigan based offenses, but are we really going to punish a D student for getting a 60 on his math test? This team is what it is.

Get better players or find a more successful system they can play within.
