I also am thinking that this is a good lesson in 1.) treating others how you want to be treated (not bullying and humiliating that he knows how it feels), and 2.) finishing what you start (the football season1), even if it isn't as fun as you thought it would be. I don't think he's too young for those lessons. And the latter applies to many situations in life that he may be facing soon (like in a job or volunteer position.)
