The Frisbee Fiasco: A Battle of Inclusion vs. Excellence 🤔

In a bid to create an inclusive environment, our frisbee-loving friend found herself in a whirlwind of emotions and conflict. The arrival of a talented player, who could out-jump, out-throw, and out-play everyone else, threatened to disrupt the harmony of the game. When asked to 'play to the level of the group,' the star player was left in tears, feeling like a 'monster.' The question remains: was it wrong to ask her to dim her light for the sake of inclusion? Or could there have been a better way to handle the situation? Let's see what the internet has to say about this...

NTA. Individual sport: play to make yourself shine. Team sport: play to make everyone shine. 👏🏻

NTA. Her need to dominate everyone else and be the MVP of every game is not the objective of your league, and it's definitely not more important everyone else's enjoyment. She doesn't get to ruin the fun for everyone else and then claim to be the victim. You aren't there to be the background players for her to glorify herself.
