Claxton has become thugs because Oak Ridge moved into Claxton. It is not the kids fault. A couple of the kids have potential to be very good players at a higher level... The coaches are promoting a thug mentality from what I can see. One of the coaches has been to jail multiple times so what can you expect but thug mentality. Saw the hoppers lost to clinton couple days ago, nice. The coach I am referring to is the JV hopper coach---Washington, I think is his last name. Most black people kick the race card out there as soon as whitey or a cracker tells the truth about a situation involving blacks. I am not racist, I tell it like I see it and I didn't whisper I tell it out load...

Oh please, racist my butt. Many black coaches and players in this leauge are great assets to the program and the community. Claxton is the exception. If I had a child in Claxton (black or white) and he or she had athletic ability they would be playing for Clinton, S. Clinton, NAGAF,or any of the others. The dance routines and music for the young cheerleaders is vulgar. The examples of leadership, ethics, sportsmanship the children in Claxton are seeing is deplorable.

My comments are in no way meant to demean the children, it's the leadership (or lack of) that is the problem. Thank goodness this season is almost over and during the off season the Claxton problems should be addressed by parents and the CFL officers. Do background checks on coaches of athletes and cheerleaders and set some rule as to what is appriopate and what is not. Many spectators Claxton and Visitors have been overheard saying they were shocked and appauled by the attitude and vulgarity at the field and would never return or let thier children participate there. Whats so hard about being civil and sportsmanlike whether your winning or losing. Leave the gang signs and vulgar talk at home. It has NO place in Youth sports.

ok first things first...stop complaining and do something about it if you don't like it....and 2nd those kids in that program have had 2 of the best years in that program. For you to say that its not about race or whatever then how come the only team you don't have a problem with is the Hopper team (all white coaching staff)....if its an issue with the program and what they do its all them not just specific individuals. For you "Common Sense"...you need to get some common sense. So what if Mr Washington has been to jail, so what...he has done his time and now is giving back to the community and everyone is appreciative. Just because you want to hate on him for it, Kids don't see that just like Kids don't see race. Its always a stupid ignorant lazy miserable adult who draws all the attention to what "they" believe to be a negative thing. And for the comments on the child named Moses....he is a child and can't really defend himself in this type of forum but I will say this, Moses is the most quiet, sweet mannarable yound men that I have come in contact with. He is a "Beast" on the field and you can't take that from him. He doesn't down play his team or his coaches. For any player his each not to show some type of emotion is pointless, just means you don't have love for the game. So before you go and call a program out or any one involved with it make sure you know what you are talking about and if you don't please keep you ignorant A$$ comments to yourself. Makes you look stupid

all u guys had nothing to say when claxton was losing. Now that they can actually compete you got something to say. Adam been coaching there but since there was no way of us actually winning on the field it was ok. The cutter coaches has had a winning team for the past few years but that is ok because the head coach is planning on going to the middle school next year so I guess you racist bigots will have to find your kids a new school. The only new coaches down there are the Hopper coaches and they do a great job just like the rest of the coaches down there. Go Blue Devils. Whose House!!!!!

BEBOP WROTE....

The coaches and parents for the very youngest group the JV Hoppers) the are all Thugs running up and down the sidelines urging the kids to rip, tear heads off, flashing gang signs and booming rap music.(Do they not do background checks on the coaches that work with kids?)

As for that comment all I have to say is.... If we were out there with an ALL WHITE coaching staff playing COUNTRY MUSIC, kicking our heels together are you saying that would be OK? As for the background checks that you say need to be done, why arent you out there volunteering YOUR time and teaching the kids the game instead of on here wanting to put down what they are trying to with these kids,(which I can assure you has no gang affiliation or cursing to the kids in any form what so ever), you must have nothing better to do with your time... maybe because of a background that you have or reputation of your own but to hide behind a computer screen name and bad mouth everyone else. Maybe you should do some further investigating if you want to throw stones at the next person before you come public with your accusations and judgemental mentality.....Assistant Coach Thump......

In reference to all the negative press about the claxton jv hoppers, first id like to say to bebop and anyone affiliated with him, youre a coward and a loser. Who are you to judge kids and fans who are there to support their kids and teammates? Its typical for ignorance to reveal itself in such a sheisty manner. My son plays for the jv hoppers and the coaches are great, they encourage positive behavior on and off the field. My son just read to a state senator in school, what has your child done?(Im guessing he was on the receiving end of one of the jv hopper blowouts, Go BLUEDEVILS!!!) As far as the racist thing goes, grow up! If you stand by what you say, I attend every game, ill be looking for the douche with the laptop!LOL

You sort of prove a point with your language and threats. Really a good example of what people are saying. Say's a lot dosen't it?

I am very proud of claxton this year and to be from claxton. These kids appreciate & respect their coaches and team mates. I think its remarkable that coaches took the time to make a song for those kids. Do u know how appreciated those kids feel to know their coach made them a song?(the song your criticizing). I cant believe an adult would say the things said above. Bringing children into this that u dont know. And a coach that is amazing with his team and has learned from his past (and ppl can change by the way.) Ive never seen any gang affiliated things at claxton so idk where u got that. And fyi my parent,that are from claxton, arent trash. And not everyone that plays there is trash. Thats just rude. This is all about kids having fun please remember that. God bless!

chances are bebop is a parent of one the players from the lake city team that our jv hoppers teams beat 24-0 last saturday giving lake city their first loss of the season..this bebop person is a prime example of taking it off of the field..our kids play and leave it on the field..it is always the parents of our opposing teams who take the losses personal..hence: going after our pee wee team in a private 2 man living room meeting causing our team to forfiet 3 games we earned on the field because their team would not make the playoffs if the wins stood..the jv hopper team just so happen to be loaded with talent across the board..and they are hard to beat hence: why they are 10-0..GO BLUE!!

The folks bad mouthing this club doesn't know this club so you should not be judging them.They help children who don't have the money to play,so that they can be in an environment where they are safe and not out doing things they shouldn't.They give love and teach love.They help even when they don't have to.I have watched them raise thousands of dollars to help people in the community,just out of love.I am not from Claxton but I am welcomed there and treated just as if I was.As for the coaches they are very fair and treat these children with love and respect and teach them respect for FREE!My son was diagnosed with brain cancer this past May and loves basketball and has made LOTS of friends who have become our family while we have played at Claxton and even though they don't have to they have welcomed him a spot on the team when most of the time he won't be able to be there--this out of love for my child and this is what kind of a club they are.LOVING,Caring people who I am proud to call my Claxton FAMILY!!
Sportsmanship

Knoxville, TN

#28 Oct 21, 2011
I think it is great that program is doing well this year...but I have witnessed POOR sportsmanship on the field and side lines from EVERY age group. I heard the Cutter Cheer Coach make horrible comments about the team that the cutters beat and towards the cheerleaders. I have seen Hopper kids, parents and coaches scream...take his legs off...referring to a player....I know every team has their moments. but this year all I have heard is negative things about Claxton. I'm not saying that it is because they are winning. I love Claxton...I love the club, but the sportsmanship that the club has shown in years past has disappeared. I wish nothing but good luck this week to ALL the teams in the palyoffs! There will be some GREAT games.
