A Goalie is a Goalie is a Goalie...

Found out today that in an attempt to keep Matt's 6-7 year old soccer league from KEEPING SCORE, they have RENAMED the Goalie position.

If you are defending the goal (which you cannot count) then you are the PRIMARY DEFENDER.

I can't imagine why they don't just run around in circles (on teams of course) kicking the ball at each other. Now, wouldn't that be fun?

No sarcasm here, folks! Really! (ahem)

And really. If you have a PRIMARY defender position, what about the poor SECONDARY defender? Aren't his/her feelings going to be hurt over being SECOND?

The whole thing just leaves me feeling somewhat flabbergasted.

Oh, and in the next league up, they MOST DEFINITELY keep score!!!
