Maybe your team should have scored another goal. Maybe a missed pass or a fanned shot or a lazy forecheck or a hit post. If ands and buts where candy and nuts we'd all have a merry Christmas. People have to get past the blaim game mentality.
When I coach I teach my players that we all make mistakes. As- coaches- as players, as officials. I teach the kids and my own children that we have to rise above things that dont go right. Whiners are losers and will continue to be losers in sport and in life. In my experience the teams that forget about the officials are the teams that are the most successful.
Some of the best lessons in the world can be taught by crushing defeats. But to blaim an official or external force for a defeat to me sends the wrong message.
