    In his article "Trophy Fury - What's Behind Claims that Kids
    Are Coddled and Over-celebrated?" Alfie Kohn writes:

    "The last time I checked, a web search for the phrases
    'everyone gets a trophy' and 'trophies just for showing up'
    produced more than 700,000 hits. The links mostly point to
    expressions of outrage that a thanks-for-playing token might
    be given to all the kids on the field ó in contrast to the
    good old days, when recognition was permitted only for the
    conquering heroes. Thatís a lot of hating to be directed at
    loving cups..."
