so your team's up by 3, 5 seconds left, and your opponent's inbounding the ball at half court after using its last timeout. You going to foul to prevent the three-point opportunity? What do your kids think?
Sadly I can't get a hold of them to make the inquiry. I could venture a good guess though: Nathaniel would foul the guy, Sarah, Matthew, and Alex just plain old don't care and they wouldn't play along.
I think fouling is the way to go but I don't think that's poor sportsmanship because each side has the same opportunity to foul. It's not one sided like The Price Is Right where each contestant is in it for themselves.
I just think that bidding a single dollar over another contestant's bid is in poor taste.
