Go Mustangs

I have a son that plays on the Mustangs Jr Team and he LOVES it. Football has been over for several weeks and I STILL hear parents whinning about the coaches....GET OVER IT!!! I almost got wrapped up in the controversy when the season got started, but I then discovered that the handful of parents starting all this animosity where'nt doing anything but run their mouths to whoever would listen. Not one person approached the board with any of their concerns. Their kids weren't really there to learn to play seriously and have fun. They did nothing but complain and goof around at the practices. I as a parent would not waste my time if I had that much of a problem with the organization.
I hear today that several of these parents are taking their kids to play for Wayland next season. Well I guess they need to do what they feel is best at least it will be much quieter in Dansville next year. I'll be able to cheer my son(who only gets his 8 plays)from the side line in peace.

I was a coach for cheerleading for a few yrs, and i know how ya feel. But as you said, no one steps up to the plate to take on the responsibilites so they have no idea what is actually at hand. Its always the coaches fault, not the kids. I had alot of parents who i believed signed their daughters up for cheerleading because it was a glorified babysitting service, and believe me they took full advantage. The whining will never stop, but the nuts on these parents will never get big enough to like you said confront the board about their issues. Its been that way for yrs.

I've heard a few versions of the footbal folies from different friends who have kids that play. I too don't understand why some of these parents sign thier kids up either. Not every kid is meant to be an athlete and their are other ways of getting your kids to be active.
I also think the board needs to maintain the zero tolerance policy with some of these parents. They should not be allowed on the field around other kids with some of the language they are using. The board & the coaches are all volunteers. They don't need to hear that crap from parents who are looking to just unload their kids for two hrs.

i agree with you totally miggie. I coached for three yrs, and the board changed hands all three yrs i was involved. And your right some kids arent cut out for this kind of stuff.

I agree with all of these Postes. My sons is done as of last year with the Junior Mustangs however I loved the time we spent there. He did nothing but advance and enjoyed every bit of it. I think if parents are going to complain they should absolutely go to the board or do as I did when I had a issue I talked it over with the coaches and always had positive feed back...I thank you to all who support and give their time to these kids. Thank you....I will be back to watch even if my son is not playing... Good Luck Mustangs...

From what I have heard the 2012 season has had quite a few kids quit on the A team after the season started. I wonder why this is? Does anyone know? As a parent I can not imagine doing all that fundraising and paying so much just to have my son quit. I am quite interested to hear the reasoning behind this.
