If winning isn't everything then why should we keep score ?

Report as

Winning is something not everything. Keeping score is important to determine the winner and loser, nothing more.

We keep score because there has to be a winner and a loser. The winner has to be recognized and awarded for it because they put more effort. People just say that so that the people who lose don't put so much pressure on them for losing especially if it's not a big deal.

Unfortunately, it's almost like human nature to need the feeling of triumph and superiority.

The only fun is actually watching the game or playing in it. Sure, it's nice to come out on top but the thrill is usually over after the final score.

If nobody wins, there is nothing to compete for, and no reason to play the game. So there has to be a score. Winning is not everything. Otherwise it wouldn't matter if one played fair or cheated. But it's an important part of sports.
