    There should be no tolerance of it in sports. Period.

    I don't think of what he did as trash talking. It was more gamesmanship between rivals. Those little digs and insults that make people on your side laugh and people on the rival side bristle.

    It wasn't about class (or the lack thereof), it was simple biology.
    Its ok towards the end of the game if the player has earned respect.

    It’s a symptom of today’s society...but...
    I much prefer the way that it used to be...

    ...that is..”act like you’ve been there before”

    I always felt that if my opponent had to revert to trash-talking, then I was already in his head.

    I don’t like the smack talking especially in HS sports. HS kids are not well equipped to tune it out and with the raging hormones I feel it just leads to cheap shots and dirty play. I really wish HS referees would stop the jawing and make the kids play the game. Make them show their talent (or lack of it) instead of someone goading the star player on the other team into doing something stupid to get thrown out.

    Refs in HS only care about trainwrecks and not fender benders. If you enforce every single instance then you would have a never ending game.

    Ive actually seen way more cheap shots in HS soccer games than HS football games.

    Trash talk is just like profanity, used by ignorant people to gain attention to themselves.

    Well in soccer if the ref doesn’t see it, it might as well of never happened.

    My office recently went to a soccer game here in Atlanta. We were allowed to bring kids, spouses, or friends. One of my coworkers brought her 2 young boys ( 9 and 10). They took an immediate shine to the game, they insisted on buying a soccer ball. The next day they were playing in the yard and one kind of bumped the other and then said “no you are supposed to fall down when I do that”.

    I’ve also seen more fan brawls and fights on the field happen in HS soccer boys and girls than I have ever in Hs football.

    I guess we're about to see what everyone on here thinks about trash talking. But why (especially in youth sports) do we try so hard to teach our youth respect for an opponent, sportsmanship etc. Yet, turn around and give the okay on behavior that otherwise would be disrespectful and bad sportsmanship, simply because they can "back it up"? Can someone explain that to me? LOL! It's a phrase you will hear a lot of you hang around sports long enough.
    I'm not sure what you mean by trash talk. In baseball there was usually a lot of chatter like "rag arm" and such but none of it was all that trashy.

    I never did the chatter because I was either pitching or playing right field where nobody could hear me anyway.
