Sore Losers

Post by DR17 » 26 Jan 2010, 01:52

Sore Losers, is it bad ? Cause i'am starting to become a sore loser. Only in important games. I told myself i motivates me to perform better and i get angry so i want the ball even more and i make more things happen. Does this happen to you ?

Yes, happens to everyone. No one likes to lose. If you are content with losing then it just shows you are complacent and do not want to go any further in your abilities.

Anything in moderation doesnt hurt. If you are using that as a drive to make you improve and perform better then by all means, use it. However, keep in mind that you must stay within the dignified depths of sportsmanship as well.

Losing should motivate you to train harder and help your teammates to train more too. You shouldn't try to take it all into your own hands, however. Try to get your team motivated as well . Work with them through the ball, while supporting them mentally.

I also don't like losing. Especially when I feel I've contributed a lot to the game , but don't get recognized for it at the end of the season.

I always tried to stray away from shaking the other teams hands after a game. It's like accepting your defeat, "hey you whooped our ass, awesome". I'm an athlete, not a sportsman. The only times I would shake hands would be if I knew someone on the other team.

Nobody likes to lose but some can handle the loss better than others. I know when my team loses, I am upset with myself and my team. I still shake hands with the other players because I am sportsmanlike and sportsmanship is personally important to me.

I'd say if losing motivates you than that is a good thing. It should motivate to play better and it also should make you want to motivate your team more.

Half the soccer players in this world are losers.

All footy players have experienced losing at one time or another, some on a larger scale then others.

I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

I hate loosing. But when ever I loose control, I remind myself that my team needs me to be a role model, it enough having a couple kids bringing us down with negative vibes. You can never have to many people being the better man, and turning a bad event into a positive one (like training harder).

If we loose, we loose as a team, everyone makes mistakes, and most likely they realize their own mistakes. But someone needs to be the person to remind them of what they CAN control, which is how much work they put in before the next game.

Alright that's good (the part about not bringing others down). And hey just find a way to channel that frustration. One of the best (and most obvious ways) is to go out and train harder for your next game. But things like friends, family, and other interests can help pull your attention from the bad game.

I think it's good if you're a sore loser. No one like to lose, if you don't get frustrated than I safely tell you that you can't go far in football. Almost all good players got temper. Look at C.Ronaldo, Rooney.
