I don't know what the big deal is. It must be that new way of thinking that is going on like not keeping score in games. I guess the experts think that losing causes some sort of issue for kids. One of the most important lessons for kids playing sports is sportsmanship. Being able to win and not rub it in your opponets face or lose without whining is right up there with teamwork IMO. When I was 10, there was a left-handed pitcher who could throw a curve ball that broke about 2 ft off the plate. You didn't hear parents or players crying. What it did do is cause us to practice more.
