Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield totally slammed an Ohio school for putting an end to competition at the school to make life easier for its snowflake students.
Mayfield reacted to a story posted by Cincinnati’s WLWT noting that Mason High School was eliminating its valedictorian and salutatorian distinctions to “reduce competitive culture.”
Oh, those poor, poor snowflakes.

Well, Mayfield wasn’t having any of it.
“This is so dumb,” Mayfield tweeted. “You’re telling me competition doesn’t bring out the best in people? If you want something bad enough, work for it. People are too soft.”

As The Blaze reported:
It was among several changes Mason City Schools announced last week, including capping grade point averages at 5.0, the Enquirer said, adding that the latter was needed because students have been pursuing higher and higher GPAs instead of other endeavors.
“Kids were using their summers, using time during the year to stack themselves up with even more classes,” Tracey Carson, a district spokeswoman, told the paper.
Seriously? The school has totally removed any incentive for succeed.
And what will happen when these soft-spinned little snowflakes get out of school and enter the real world? Will everyone bend over backwards to make life easy for them?
Not a chance.
These kids will grow up bitter and confused as they are eaten alive by people with real ambition.
