I've never seen such an immature argument , I participated in High School Athletics and in order to be good you much compete year around. We want to bring the name back to Franklin County of having good players and teams. For us to do that we must be in the sport at least 8 months out of the year. it seems insane (as you would say) but its what pays off. these kids have dreams, let them live it.

THERE IS A REAL STRONG GROUP OF ATHLETES COMIMG UP WHO HAVE BEEN DEDICATED TO THE OFF SEASONS AND HAVE WORKED REAL HARD. GIVE THEM A CHANCE AS WELL AS NEUMAN. ANYTIME SOMEBODY COMES INTO THIS TOWN AND TRIES TO CHANGE THINGS HE/SHE IS TALKED ABOUT AND THEIR NAME RUN INTO THE GROUND. IF WE ARE GOING TO HAVE SPORTS WE MIGHT AS WELL TRY TO COMPETE AND TRY TO COMPETE AT A HIGH LEVEL. THIS TOWN IS FULL OF GOOD ATHLETES AMD THERE ARE KIDS THAT HAVE AND ARE PLAYING COLLEGE SPORTS. IF YOUR KID ISNT ONE OF THEM THEM ACCEPT THAT AND MOVE ON THAT DOESNT MAKE THEM BAD KIDS.AND YES OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM IS FULL OF TEACHERS THAT NEED REPLACED OR NEED TO RETIRE. OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH SOME NEW. TO ACUSE A TEACHER/COACH OF SUCH AN ACT IS COWARDLY AND IF THEY ARE DOING SUCH THINGS WITH STUDENTS TURN THEM IN YOU OWE IT TO THE KID AND YOURSELF. THE PEOPLE ON THIS SIGHT AMAZE ME. GIVE HIM AND THESE ATHLETES A CHANCE, KIDS ARE BEING DEVELOPED AT A YOUNG AGE AND ARE BEING TAUGHT THE RIGHT WAY. THE YOUNGER ATHLETES ARE DOING GREAT AND DOING IT THE RIGHT WAY WITH HARD WORK AND DEDICATION. DONT SLAM PLAYERS AND COACHES BECAUSE YOUR JEALIOUS, EVERYONE IS WORKING HARD AND I HEAR WE ARE GETTING NEW COACHES IN LOWER LEVEL GRADES AND THINGS ARE FINALLY LOOKING UP. EITHER GET WITH THE PROGRAM OR SHUTUP

I'm not a parent of a player nor am I a player... I'm not sure Neuman is a good role model for our kids. He's rude to them and talks down to them. 2 more kids quit today. It isn't always about winning. It's about improving. What has Nuemann done to improve the kids AND what have the kids done to improve themselves? If you're always being belittled, how is that supposed to motivate anyone? He knew their skill level when he picked his teams to start with. So now they aren't good enough? I think the coach needs to look in the mirror before he blames all of the problems on his players.

You hit the nail on the head...Joe Neuman is a total ass,I like you do not have a direct connection, but I'm close enough to see he has lost the team.. Your the problem Joe!!!!!!!!

I totally agree also, some of the younger kids belong there but please the kid with the head band belongs on the freshman team not even jv,its not about what grade you are in the team needs to come together. I get so tired in EVERY sport that you people think the lower kids are so much better well i have not seen shit yet.

You know, I couldn't wait until the teachers have their summer vacation paid by (we the tax payers} to get on topix to make some lame comment like you. I don't know who you hate more, the kids or the parents. Sorry excuse and role model for young people! BURNOUT? Go get some help with your problems! Oh yea we pay you for lifetime benefits!! Thanks to your UNION.
First... the so called "summer vacation" teachers get is spent preparing for the next school year.
Second... Do you bring your work home with you every nigth until 10-11:00? Doubt it!!
Third... do you sacrifice spending time with your own children so you can attend to the needs of someone elses???

Bottom line... if you can do a better job trying teach some of the students we have to teach THEN DO IT!!!! Until then shut up and get onboard with your child's teacher to do what is best for your kid. BELIEVE ME... we don't teach because the pay and work schedule is great!

First of all I think Joe is a great guy, coach and teacher. I just don't understand what all of the sudden has gotten into him. The team was really coming together before he pulled up the freshman and put the sophomores on varisty. At least the JV is winning. I think he should have put all juniors and seniors on varisty and that would have helped him prepare for next year. Let the almighty sophomores play jv to get ready for next year. They need the experience. The juniors and seniors practiced all summer together. I really think that by the middle of the season the team would have been together to possibly win sectional. Now who knows it is up for grabs. Yes, I believe he has ruined the team for this year, it is sad. He has lost 3 good players and what a shame. I really wish he would go back to those 3 players and ask them back, start over, put juniors and seniors ONLY on varisty and I think in a week it would be better than ever. What does he have to loose????

Do you want to know why kids are obese! It has nothing to do with the not having a good time in athletics. I mean is it a crime to ask kids to have a little commitment to something? The reason kids are obese is because nowadays parents by their kids anything they want to keep them happy and out of their way! The reason that kids are obese is because they are lazy and would rather sit on their asses playing video games rather than work hard and committ to something that would make them sweat. Kids now don't have to earn anything for themselves. That is why kids now also have no accountability for any of their actions. I am a teacher in a high school and it pisses me off to no end when a teenager can walk around with no respect for adults and treat adults like the adults owe them something! The reason that kids are obese is because the parents allow them to get that way!
So we have mean fat kids?
