He is a joke did you see him at practice a while back with his game plan hanging out of the front of his pants? He needs to be in the NBA.

This is one of the few times I'm not going to be a dick. When it comes to youth sports, every child should have the opportunity to play. You can't boost a child's confidence and help them develope any form of self-respect or sense of teamwork when they have to watch their peers play from the sides. It shouldn't be about who the better player is. It shouldn't even be about winning. It should be about teaching kids the fundamentals of the sport, not to mention they should be having fun; they're kids.

Isn't there a board or group of people you can express your opinion to about this person?

I don't have any personal stake in it, but whoever is coaching a youth sport to "win" and not all of the kids are playing...well that person sounds like as much of a Blow-hard as Halblob.

I agree Doug! Nothing in it for me either. I would pity the coach of PutnamBlob's son. Could you imagine? He would show up wearing the sweat pants and.... never mind.

Sweatpants, sandals, and a smug grin of false accomplishment?

So its all about you and not the kids. What a jerk!I sure hope you don't have kids of your own. Or better yet hope they don't turn out like you if you do.

Winning is more important than having fun.

Your remarks shock me. I guess it isn't about the kids in any form at all.... What is this league teaching the children exactly?

Winning is never more important you idiot. At this age you are teaching kids the wrong things if that is what you are teaching. If this is what you are teaching kids this will be it for my child. I will not pay you anymore money for your ELITE league that you ended up being the teacher of. What a waste of my families money.

No matter what the sport is at a youth level, letting the kids have a good time and feel like the athletes they see on TV is more important than winning. Winning starts with confidence and that is built at the age they are. Fire his ass.

From what I hear it sounds like a great guy. Sounds like someones son isn't getting the playing time they think they deserve. If you don't raise a kid to want to win the you are teaching them to fail at life.

My child plays in the Hurricane league. He does get playing time. I agree that the league is ran very wrong. Sad to watch some of the kids sit on the bench that deserve to play that don't get to play due to politics. You can see their confidence slide away. I also watch some kids that get way more playing time that they should....again politics. Would be nice if someone could run they league in a fair manner. Overheard a parent make a comment about how all pay the same amount of money, work, concession, door, clock, etc to see their kid get absolutely no playing time. That doesn't seem fair at all. Seems very sad. Especially when grandparents and extended family show up to watch their child play, only to watch him warm a seat and sit humiliated.

If the kid deserves to play then will in the end. I had politics against me in my life but my dad always told me that "the cream always rises to the top." what he was saying is that if you keep up the hard work that in the end if you deserve it then you'll get it. I am now a college athlete and believe the best athlete always gets what they deserve in the end and that fighting to win will help in everything in life

Maybe someone will knock out his teeth like they did last year when he shoved the kid to the bench. Yeah you really sound like you are teaching them to be winners. Far from it. You need to start with yourself first.
