Here is a young man who is clearly better than his peers being penalised for being better.
Like Jimerson, Hill attended Wilson Intermediate School and dominated the football field so thoroughly, the league invoked what came to be known as the Madre Hill Rule. Once Hill scored three touchdowns, if his team had a 14-point lead, officials banned him from scoring any more touchdowns. Now, for the first time since, the Wilson Intermediate Football League is using the Madre Hill rule again — to tackle Demias Jimerson.
Whilst it is only an anecdotal impression it would seem to me that this sort of thing is becoming ever more prevalent – witness the outcry of our somewhat bogus trader admitting on the BBC that the job of traders was to make money.
Such an approach really is the pull of mediocre wanting everyone else to be medicore like them.
