Is playing sick an excuse for losing?

My uncle has been really tearing into me about these losses to crappy teams.  I include ND is my list of crappy teams, and that is why I was wondering if it makes sense to cut Austin Freeman slack because of his illness. The conversation went like this:

Uncle: Where's the "We Lost to RU" banner

Me: next to the "we beat nova" banner

Uncle: Is that above or below the "We lost to the Irish without Luke" one?

Me: next to the "we lost to the irish when austin freeman was sick as anything and was getting IV's" sign

Uncle: If you lace them up there are no excuses

I also talked with my friend who said that football players play through all kinds of shit to win each game.  He said players will play hard and well no matter what the conditions.  I don't think the case can be made that he was trying to rest up for future games, because he suited up and went in the game.

Do we give Austin a freebie for playing sick? or does that not matter?

Stay Casual, my friends.
