Basketball Team Kicked Out of League for Being Too Good

If Bernie Sanders doesn’t make it to the White House, maybe they could put him in charge of a girls’ basketball league. Looks like his principles are already being applied:

A girls’ basketball team has claimed they have been told they can no longer play in their local league because they are ‘too talented’.

The Rogers Area Youth Basketball Association (RAYBA) girls’ high school team in Minnesota say they were told by the North West Suburban Basketball League that they would be no longer welcome to play matches due to their ‘skill level’.

They say that the news came in a letter just the day before they were due to play in a showcase tournament and while the girls were on a three game winning streak.

That will teach them. Athletic skill is a form of privilege. Exploiting privilege to defeat opponents is a form of oppression.

[C]oach Jason Hanauska says he is mad that banning his team means the league will stop talent from developing.

He told Fox 9: ‘We found out on Friday they were not going to be allowed because according to the league our girls were too talented.

‘Three teams were threatening to I guess either forfeit the games against us or flat out quit the league. So for some reason they kicked us out.’

The girls may not get a chance to develop their talent, but at least they received a lesson on the futility of excellence in a country run by egalitarians.

Eventually, as moonbattery corrodes its way into everything, this same principle will be applied to professional sports. The lousy teams will finally have a chance, once progressives have eradicated outcome inequality.
