There is nothing wrong with a tie. But for whatever reason, that doesn’t fly in America.

It’s not the result most Americans dislike. It’s the strategy that teams will use to try and secure the tie.

In American Sports people like the underdog to win the outright. Playing with the intent to tie the game feels like deception and in our sports there is an assumption of pureness or nobleness (that’s completely manufactured and BS).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
