Didn't mean to make it sound like there aren't good things about team sports or good people playing and coaching them. Some of my best friends....etc. Just that there doesn't seem to be the same scrutiny from either those engaged in team sports or outsiders observing, as there is say for Catholic priests.
Or as much support and approval in many communities (like mine) for kids who prefer skateboarding and other non team sports. Not that skateboarding can't be competitive, but in general everyone skates at the level of their ability and/or courage, interest and commitment, and most of the time no one gets any flack for what that turns out to be whether impressive or not.
