What is going on with football program in New Madrid? This has become embarrassing for the whole community. New Madrid is the laughing stock of Southeast Missouri. When did it become ok to be losers? I remember when you could hold your head high when you said you were from New Madrid. Where is the pride? School officials should be ashamed of themselves for letting this go on. How can the school board just sit by and do nothing as their schoolís sports makes everyone from this community look so bad. This has gone on for too long something needs to be done. I am sick and tired of hearing there is no talent in new Madrid. Are you telling me that New Madrid is the only school in southeast Missouri that doesnít have any talent give me a break. You are saying New Madrid has less talent than Sikeston, Caruthersville, Charleston, Hayti, Portageville, MALDEN. Really when did this happen? Look what Sikeston did when they got a good coach. They went from years of losing to being state ranked the past 3 years. Oh guess they just had a bunch of talent move in and the new coach had no effect. The only distinction we have that other schools in Southeast Missouri donít is we donít care. What really bothers me is we have success at the junior high level then boom they get to high school and forget how to play? Oh yea they play a different level in high school. People they are playing the same kids and the same schools in junior high they play in high school. We are even in a lower class this year and still cannot win. There is a serious problem going on. Why does everyone turn a blind eye? Especially to a coach that does nothing but say how stupid the kids are how bad the school is and how lousy the community is. Not to mention how he talks to the kids. No coach would last a week anywhere else with the things that come out of his mouth. Oh guess thatís ok too just toughening them up because they are a bunch of soft kids. It is one thing to lose but when a majority of kids arenít even playing because of the way they are treated and talked to thatís a problem. I doubt anyone would have a problem with a coach yelling at a kid and keeping their thumb on them to make them better but degrading and calling them names is not coaching it is humiliating. If your boss called you every name in the book every day and said what a piece of $@# you were you wouldnít work there long no matter how tough you are. Thatís why so many of our kids quit playing sports in high school that have played since they were in grade school. I know a lot of tough talented kids that are not playing because they are not gonna take being talked to like they are a stupid piece of garbage. It is called pride and if we had a little more of that from school officials and the school board we wouldnít be in the shape we are in.

Need to move Coach Craft back to the high school, and McClarty needs to learn more about football.
The coach needs to learn to use the whole team instead of picking favorites. The coach also need to encourage instead of discouraging the kids, they might do a little better with some encouragement!

Maybe, when parents start parenting, the team will succeed. Students doing drugs, stealing and making grades would help!

sikeston has got not only their football players BACK they have all of their sports including golf,softball and cheerleading BACK that is why new madrid gave up bcause all they seemed to care about was the football team and maybe basketball team and i say maybe. I say if you cant be there for all dont be there at all.

That has been going on for years and continues to go on everywhere. That is an easy out.

My son used to play football here, he said he has never had a problem with Pixley, he is stern but never called him names he said if you are slow he will tell you your slow and no he wasnt one of his favorites, he was lucky if he got to play at all, lol. Coach McClarty is the line coach thats where the problem is!!!

Pixley is a great coach and is very knowledgable. I have seen him be like a father figure to a lot of kids. He is very stern, but its only to make these kids stronger! You want find another coach like him! The big problem is the parents in New Madrid county, hosting parties buying the kids alcohol and letting them do whatever!

The problem is that they let all of the goodie goodie kids play. You know the ones with big names and big money and they have no talent at all. There are several kids that can out run, jump, and have just all around more athletic ability than the money kids do. Get rid of the money kids and play the talented players and you will become a winning team.

When I played basketball there were lots of more talented kids too, but, they didn't want to come to practice, or listen to the coach or get along with teammates. You do understand that high school sports is supposed to be about character development and not who can bail their players out of jail in time for the game?

You must have been one of those kids that sucked at sports and are now resenting not getting enough playing time. That's the biggest excuse in high school sports. Having a name may help out some but you still got to be able to play. If you were more worried about making a name instead of complaining maybe your kids would have a better opportunity, whether it be in sports or life in general.

Lololol!!! You people always take things WAY out to right field! I never said that they should play he straight gangsters. Most of the kids with the names or money are NOT respectable people. As a matter of fact when I played football in school the quarterback got 2 DWI's during his senior year but did this matter to anyone that he sucked royally and couldn't throw the football over 25 yards? NO!!! He just kept on playing as we lost all but one game and that was the game that he missed while he was in the clink for drunk driving! We won that night because the 2nd string QB was way better but he wasn't big name or big money so he didn't play when the drunk got out. Some of you might remember this season. Also the big name QB money ran dry and the police got tired of his name and he is currently visiting the department of corrections for a few more years and trust me, it is not because of his "good character" peace fu ckers!
