Default I want to know what Gamecocks fans think.

So tonight, all Klissmann had to do was to play our 3rd team, pass the ball, let Panama score a few goals and eliminate Mexico out of the world cup, yes lose, we didnt need any point.

90 minutes in the game, Panama was winning 2-1, Mexico was losing at Costa Rica, we just had to pass the ball and let the clock run for 2 more minutes.

The Americans scored 2 goals in 2 minutes, we won, we didnt even need a tie, but we won, that win gave Mexico life.

What do you guys think? Too much class from the players? from the Coach?

As a coach I would have played my worse players, its a rivalry thing, its a mans thing

As a Carolina fan, if you didnt need to win, would you have done it knowing that you were giving Clemson a shot?

This is interesting.

I dont know if it has to be with sportmenship but rivalries are also part of the game.

Im curious to know what most of you think.

What is more important, rivalry pride or sportmanship?

I will never understand truly understand a sport where winning isn't the absolute most important thing at all times. Playing for points is stupid.

I wish we would've lost last night just so Mexico would've been knocked out of WC qualification. I get why most people take the "Win or GTHO" attitude, but in the group stage when you have the points you need locked up, winning isn't essential (blasphemous as that may sound).

It would be comparable to an NFL team not playing their starters in the late weeks of a season because they had already clinched a playoff spot. During those weeks they lose to a team on the fringe of the playoffs knocking a division rival out of contention.

with the way Mexico has been playing you never know, New Zealand could beat them.

Keeps integrity, I'm OK with it. As others have said, same thing happens in all sports.

This year, the Yankees (hate 'em) were already eliminated from the playoffs and Mariano Rivera mentioned wanting to play in the outfield. Girardi ruled it out against one team still in the playoff hunt but mentioned it as a possibility for the remaining series. He was putting his best team out there despite the game meaning nothing to his team.

what if it involves Boston out of the play off by them losing?

Rivalries are also part of the game.

Why not just play your worse players, give them some pt and enjoy watching your rival dead on the ground

I guess is just me but I take rivalries wayyyy too serious.

Im sure Madrid would have done that to see Barcelona out of the Champions League

I guess most of you would prefer to win instead of watching Clemson suffering...

Most fans think its about sportmenship and a class of act of the players and Klissmann, I think we should have let Mexico sink in their own mediocrity. We gave them life by winning, a win that we didnt need.

I see this thread getting not so pleasant resonses. You purposely title it what you did to get as many people as possible to view it ... to only bait and switch it to a sport that a LARGE percentage on this board does not care about ... enjoy.

Yea but it's gone both ways before.
A few years back the Colts pulled their starters against the Jets.
The jets won that game and made the playoffs.

its always interesting to know what other sport fans think.

It doesnt really bother me when people hate on soccer, it used to but not anymore. People have the right to have their own opinions, if they hate soccer, its their opinion, cant do nothing about it.

let me put it this way, and this is a personal question.

would you be ok with usc losing one game just so clemson didnt qualify to play off?

Im curious to know how the average usc fan feels. I know this is becoming a soccer-hate parade but I am still interested to know how far the rivalry usc-clemson goes...

I think most USC fans will have a difficult time answering this question because, for me personally, I'm having difficulty thinking of a scenario in college football where that would happen.

True, but the difference here was that the Colts were in the playoffs and had to protect the health of their players. Whereas the Yankees were eliminated and had nothing - short of a catastrophic injury - to lose.

Of the 2 Collegiate sports I follow you'd have to think of some wacky situations here this occurred.
One of them would be where We are both in the same Conference.
It's more likely to happen at the professional level and this isn't the right message board to ask that.
I bet if you asked this question to a Steelers fan about the Ravens or Redskins fan about the Cowboys the opinion would be different.

Yea but you're still not putting your best team out there giving the Jets a much easier game.
