Play to win

Re the June 8 article Don’t blame U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann for just being honest about World Cup chances: It’s ridiculous that sports columnist David Neal makes excuses for a coach who tells his team and the world they cannot win. This coach needs to be shown the door.

One does not play any game to finish second. Even the Dolphins’ hope at quarterback had every intention of winning the Miami Dolphins’ Foundation Fins Weekend Fishing Tournament. Why else compete?
