Don't you just hate rejection? I sure as hell do. I just got the worst rejection of my life thus far today. And it wasn't even from a girl. I play club soccer, or football for you brits. and today i go on the website to see the postings for the tryouts, to find that i am cut. After being with this club for some 6 years, they cut me. So i call up my coach, thinking this must be some sort of mistake. He goes on to tell me that basically the majority of the games we lost were my fault.( I play goal). He also said that my team was losing more games because they were losing confidence in me. I will say that i did have to bad games, but others where i kept us in it, or won it for us. He said that he took a new kid, who was very good, however i believe i am still better than, also, my backup. Yes. He took my backup because he never really got a chance to prove himself because he got injured. So in all, today was a day of heartbreak.

Now that thats out of the way, lets discuss how rejection is a bitch, and what you guys have dealt with.

There's two instances:
1. My father rejected my mother, my brother, and I. I still deal with depression over this thing. Don't know if I'll ever get over it.

2. This one girl that said so much crap to me about loving me and stuff went out and kissed some dude at a party. At the time, I was pretty pissed, but now I found a much better girl and I'm happy.

The former being the worse, as I have dealt with it since I can remember, the latter happened in February.

Dude i know what you mean with the goalkeeping. I'm a goalkeeper, and I make the team but don't start because I don't dive every flipping chance i get. Everytime i've been beaten out, the kid makes it so dramatic and he gets scored on I hate it, but I put up with it...
#7
I think that's kinda low that he didn't even keep you but sit you on the bench to try to earn your way back into the starting role.

And for rejection, I just eliminate the fear of rejection and in turn, I eliminate the bad feeling of rejection.

That happened at my school. I tried out for basketball, but our coaches only put the football players on the team, so I never got a fair chance. Although that sounds harsh. Sorry man.

On topic, yeah, rejection sucks. But it's a part of life. So, you gotta learn not to let it put you down. Rise up and show em why they made a mistake.
#12
And now Im basically screwed. It wouldve been nice to at least know that there was a possibility of me being cut so i could try out for other teams. Now most tryouts are over and ill be hardpressed to find a decent team to play on next season.

I've had something worst then rejection

There was this one "popular" girl that i liked asked her out and she said yes...but then it turns our she only went out with me because she felt sorry. That was probably the worst feeling ever and since then i tend to not have the urge to ask anyone out cause i don't even know if they like me or they are just pitying me.
#15
dude same **** happened to me...i train for varsity keeper since 7th grade and since the other guy is a year older than me he always played above me except in a few games but when he graduated i was like "yeah finally my shot" and then the coach pulls some kid off his baseball team to play cause he thinks he's got better reflexes. every single person on the team made fun of this kid and he quit twice during the first week cause people threw **** at his car or kicked balls at him when he wasnt looking. he also skipped tryouts cause he was in florida when i saw him at the mall.

here's how i handeled it....showed up to one team held practice and showed him up, got the team to bitch at the coach, nothing happened and they went 3-15 that season, and his girlfriend cheated on him with me. safe to say i owned him.

Yeah, rejection certainly sucks. I never get invited to hang out, or go to parties at all. But when I hang out with friends at school were all cool. It seems like people just ignore me all the time. I don't get it. I'm not a very strong social person, and I'm scared to ask girls out, for fear of rejection. I hate it... but at least I have music, and that's what makes me happy.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

Hey, I play goal on a club team too, nice

But yeah, rejection sucks, and every athlete gets their fair share of it. Just train like crazy, join a new club, and kick your old teams asses. For added satisfaction, go shake your old coaches hand after the game and make some sort of snide remark.

The most important thing is to not let it get to you though, remember that you must be good if you are a club level player.

That's why you never play defense in sports. Seriously, if you win nobody says much to you and if you lose it's because it was all your fault.

Aww, I can't relate, but I have always had second thoughts about relationships for the same exact reasons.

I have only gotten rejection when asking for a second chance

I'm pretty much amazing at everything though, so it doesn't happen much

Same situation here... I had something happen when asking a girl out for the first time that made me never want to ask someone out again. It was a LOT worse than her just saying no.

I moved from Michigan to Washington. I was pretty popular, and had lots of friends in Michigan. I had a good social life at the first school I went to here in Washington, but I got sick of the people cause it was so small. So I transferred, and I'm still having trouble making real friends after 4 years. I'm glad this will be my last year.

Don't try to shoot over people too much taller than you, if you have to, pump fake first. They'll go flying and you'll have a free shot. I know this, because I have been faked out way too many times. Being block-happy isnt a good habit in basketball, unless you're 6' 6"+
#37
Hmm not the same but its sports related. I play a few sports; Football, Rugby, Baseball, Lacrosse and i have never been declined a possition on the team but i have had my possition changed on me.

In Rugby I used to be inside center i got switched last year for my friend whom is more intimidating looking but not much stronger and much slower then me. I then was bumped to fullback which i have never played and now I get the blame for any bad play my friend makes at inside center because I didn't train him....

TRO, NUGGA. Same exact thing. Except I didn't find another girl, because being single is better.

Plus, all the girls around here are ugly and un-interesting, anyway.

I've never been rejected. I'm smart enough to wait for them to ask. I've rejected a few girls though, but they shouldn't have asked in the first place.

On a more happier note, I just got offered an apprentiship and a fulltime job. I came 1st overall for the club moto-cross season and my girlfriends putting out ALOT. Lifes going great.
