Sportsmanship

So as I sit here watching the Falcons dominate against the Cardnials, the comment was made about teaching the youngsters about sportsmanship. The context was this. The falcons are up 41-7, and have the ball on the Arizona 5 yard line. The guys in the booth were commenting on weather or not the Falcons would elect to just take a knee for a few plays or try to score.

Someone then says that what do you do in a situation like this, especially when trying to teach the young kids about sportsmanship.

Now the question that I have is this. Why is it unsportsmanlike to continue to play hard and score points? What about that is unsportsmanlike? To me, you play until the final whistle. So can someone please let me know what is it that makes it unsportsmanlike to continue playing hard and pounding in more points?
