On Sportsmanship

In any hotly contested game, we must always learn to honour and respect our competitors. We honour them for helping to lift the quality of the game. We respect them to keep ourselves humble. Winning at any cost will lead to dishonouring the game, disrespecting the competition, and ultimately the destruction of sportsmanship. After all, we would rather see a good game between two really good teams, instead of one-sided affairs or unsporting bullies. Like some would say: "Win with style, Lose with style." The score may not favour us, but classiness will favour all.

Yes, it is important to win. However, do not let winning overwhelm us until we forget that underneath the game of sports, we are all the same. We are all human.
