Need to enforce sportsmanship rules

I passed a soapbox on the street today, and I decided to climb onto it.

Every once in a while, I hear that the players of today don't do things as well as the players of yesterday. Well, today's player tends to get a bad rap. The older set seems to believe that team play and fundamentals were better in the good old days, and that the old-school "players" were more skilled and simply better than today's "athletes."
