Coach House was a product of his father n law being on the school board. I think he is a good guy, just not a baseball coach. This is just another example of good ole boy politics.Taking care of family over sports and education. But, my brother in Arkansas says thats the way it is in his town also. I think people run for school boards because they have agendas for their kids and family. I believe the best school board members would be those without kids or family in school.
You do realize it's been almost 15 years since his father-in-law has been on the school board, right?

Well bulldog, I can see where shes coming from. Theres many around here in positions above most, who does think they are beyond reproach and some young people too. I know there are some good people here, but it doesn't take long to recognize a phony, money or not.Its hard to find people who you would want to pattern after, so I am not easily impressed. I don't think she or he is paranoid, probably tired of being looked down on, or seeing others looked down on.

Chance I got on here because a person I like was being attacked. I should have just let this topic die.I don't know if you know the people guest is talking about but the majority of the parents are just like me They work hard and make just enough to get by. One reason for that is because a big chunk of the money they make goes to support people who don't work.Either guest is working and making a living just like them or not working so the people she call elites are spending there tax money to support her. If that's the case she sure doesn't need to attack them.I know a lot of kids that don't have any money at all that do great things and one reason they are is because they don't sit around feeling sorry for themselves or using others as an excuse not to make it. And also a lot of the people who are being critized as being elite have helped those kids along the way With their own time and money in a lot of cases. Nobody on that team is playing because of their parents they are playing because they have worked hard to get where they are and her son can too if is willing to work hard.

Can you hurry up and respond to that with some type of psychotic meth rant? I need a good laugh before I call the school board to make sure my kid is being treated a little better than the rest.

U do realize that you folk are fighting over a game right ? I hope you people dont act like this in front of your kids. Actions like these just might turn out another gun toteing psycopath that shoots up movie houses or preschools.
Just remember its just a game and kids are there to have fun. And you adults need to quit acting like children.

It is completely irrational to think that it's nice to win but that you shouldn't win at the expense of others. If there is a winner, there will always be a loser. Therefore winning comes at the expense of the losers.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but that statement is illogical.

And the fact that I'm a junior in high school and even I am aware of this fact means that although the school hasn't been excelling in athletics, they must be doing something right academically.

I don't think you are getting it. I believe that " at the expense of others" was used to mean at the expense of others on the team,not on the opposing team, in other words, don't play only the best players but play everyone whether you win or not, play everyone on the team. Remember, IT IS JUST A GAME.

It may not matter to you but most players, coaches and communities want to win. Competing is what makes sports fun. You aren't going to get many people to agree with you about it not mattering Even sports that don't have scores have judges to decide who wins. Competing is what makes sports fun.

I disagree with you. Winning is not the most important part of sports at the grade school/high school level. What is most important is teaching the children the game whatever sport it is and allowing them to play equally no matter what their talent is. What makes it fun is seeing those children ALL get to play the game and that it is not just for the exceptional player. NO ONE likes to sit the bench, not even the talented players. Winning is secondary to teaching the children how to play the game and boosting their self esteem because they do get to participate in the sport on an equal basis.

What reason would a kid have to try at all if winning doesn't matter and working hard to become a good player doesn't let you play anymore than a kid who doesn't work hard at all to get better.It sounds kind of like what's happening in our country. Many people are doing nothing and expecting people who work hard for their money to take care of them through government handouts that come out of their paychecks.

Playing the game is suppose to be the reward for playing the sport. Learning how to play the sport, learning how to work as a group, learning how to cooperate with others, those are all examples of "what good it does to play sports and play equally". You are suggesting that some kids give their all and some don't and that the kids that give their all get to play more as a reward. You have kids that "give their all, practice every practice, do everything they are suppose to do," and still are not as talented as others in sports. You could say the untalented ones are punished for not being talented. Those kids should also get as much playing time as the talented ones. They have all met the requirements of playing sports - they have signed up to play, paid their money to play, practiced as much as the others, have the desire to play and succeed, etc. and they should get to play as much as the ones who are considered the best players. The best players in sports are very often time not the best in other categories such as academics, social skills, electronics, etc. There is more to this world than sports and let these kids have fun just playing a game. ALL OF THEM.

Do you think all kids should make the same grades. They all go to school the same amount of days. Should we take all the scholarships given out at the end of the year and divide them up evenly even though some kids have worked hard and some haven't worked at all. Should everyone make the same amount of money because their self esteem will be hurt if someone else is making more than them. None of your argument makes any sense. You are just unhappy because your son is sitting on the bench.By the way if he is playing summer ball he is getting to play because they always play 2 games and everyone is getting to play.

Evidently your kids is one of the kids setting the bench or you wouldn't be on here. If your kid was playing most of the game you would have a different view. So its really in the eyes of the beholder.

Grades and playing a game of baseball are two different things. Making money is different than playing a game of baseball also. You are assuming that some kids (maybe your kid) works harder than the other kids on the team. There are kids that are not as talented that work just as hard as the "talented" kids and they still sit the bench. In some cases the bench sitters are as good but they are not "favored" by the coach. They may be "favored" for a reason that has nothing to do with skill and baseball. They may be favored because their parents are friends with the coach or their child is friends with the coaches child or there are many reasons some kids are played when they are not any better at playing ball than the bench sitters. BTW, I am not unhappy. I do not have a child playing ball, I just can not believe that some people believe that it is okay for some of the kids to play all of the time and some of the kids sit the bench all of the time. Put yourself in the bench sitters place, just for a minute, imagine you have paid your money to play, bought your cleats and socks and glove and whatever else is required, practiced hard for every game, did everything you were suppose to do and you never get to play or only get to play center field or outfield a few minutes some games. Please tell me how you think you would feel? How do you think your child would feel? Do you think your child would sit there game after game after game warming that bench and be happy about it? Do you think your child would think it was fair to never get to play? I would like to know if you can see it from that angle. I would like to know if you think it would be okay for your child to sit the bench every game. Can't you see that it is just a game? A game that all kids should be able to play and enjoy while they are kids. Competition will be steep when they get out into the real adult world, can't you let them all play a game of baseball while they are young enough to enjoy playing it?
