Really? Well, that explains it then. You know nothing about Michigan High School football. Flint Powers has a winning percentage of 0.694 which presently ranks 26th in the State. 6-7 district championships, 2-3 regional championships, and a state championship. Look it up.

Wow! I can't even respond to that! Apparently it means just as much to lose to Algonac as it does to the Wisconsin Div. I State Champion. Can't argue with that flawed logic.

I made my case for their opponents. I feel the arguement was strong enough that I won't rehash it.

A very biased Marine City fan replied by saying:
<quoted text>
I fully agree with what you are saying...Entering into a Long-Term Rivalry is not done so by signing one contract; it is the result of CONTINUOUSLY SIGNING short-term contracts. For example, Jackson Lumen Christi had lost to Marysville TEN years in a row, but they CONTINUOUSLY kept on signing those short-term contracts!...As a result, Jackson Lumen Christi EARNED RESPECT!
Marine City CHOOSES NOT TO "CONTINUOUSLY" sign short-term contracts against local teams like Anchor Bay because Anchor Bay won 50% of the matches!
<quoted text>
Two points to make:
1. Marysville was NOT the original team that Marine City had scheduled for 2008. Marine City cancelled their other game, just to get the 0-9 wimp team from Marysville on the schedule. Marine City likes the idea of playing worthless opponents like Algonac or an 0-9 Marysville team, but those Marine City coaches ran from the Marysville teams coached by Walt Braun when Marine City would go on 11-game losing streaks!
2. Local Teams: If Local Teams are "given priority," it means that Marine City should be scheduling local teams like Anchor Bay (10 minutes away) rather than Marysville (20 minutes away)...especially since Anchor Bay was ALREADY on the Marine City schedule!...
[QUOTE who="MC no long term rivalries"]But Marine City's pussy coaches were NOT willing to renew the short-term contract, because of the FACT that Anchor Bay had BEATEN Marine City, and Marine City does NOT like the idea of entering into a long term rivalry against a tough local team that plays in the MAC Red or MAC White...Marine City only is willing to play second-rate leagues like MAC Blue and MAC Silver.
Actually...there are NO teams....ZERO teams...in the MAC Gold, Silver, or Bronze that schedule games against MAC Red or even MAC White schools. You're asking MC to do something ZERO other schools in the Class B divisions do...and for no other reason than MC is sooooo good that you're "bored" with them beating on MAC Gold and MAC Blue teams. Get over it.

Sterling Heights and Fraser played Marine City and Clintondale.
Gross Point South and Port Huron Northern played L'Anse Creuse and St. Clair
Port Huron and Roseville played Eastpointe and Warren Woods Tower

See a trend? See how a MAC Blue school AUTOMATICALLY gets scheduled to play 2 MAC Gold schools??? I actually wish Clintondale and MC WOULD get moved up to MAC Blue...so that they'd each finish 7-2 in a Class A division. And instead of finishing as 1 and 2 seeds in Division 4, they'd be 2 and 3 seeds. But then...then Mr. "No respect for MC" will start saying how it's not fair that MC plays schools twice their size...they need to play schools TRIPLE their size to get "real respect".

Just go cheer for Marysville and shut up already!

You're right, Marine City's coaches would NEVER have the guts to continuously re-schedule teams enough times to form what would be a "long-term" rivalry.

I have called ALL the Scarcelli's names like "feminine" and "pussy" to their face! I've said it directly in front of Scarcelli from about three feet away!...

Here is something you need to know: Tony Scarcelli thinks he is the "big man on campus" when he is picking on 13-year old freshman boys and girls. There is no risk of a kid standing up to him, since he has the ability to kick kids off the team.

But experience has proven that when Scarcelli is speaking to another adult, especially off of school grounds, Scarcelli is a PUSSY who runs with his tail between his legs and shoved up inside his mangina canal!

- And stop with Anchor Bay already! If Marine City took your advice and made Anchor Bay a "long term rivalry back in the late 90s, you'd be crying your little vagina out NOW because Anchor Bay is a BAD MAC White team.
FACT:

ANY team in the MAC White is still a "MAC White" level team. This AUTOMATICALLY makes the MAC White team SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER than the MAC Blue teamS (plural) that Marine City insists on playing!

For example, Anchor Bay is MUCH BETTER than a team like Fraser!...Do you realize that the MAC Blue is the Class-A enrollment version of the Class-B league called the MAC Bronze.

...And it is YOU who would be crying his Marine Shity Mangina out now if Marine City would have KEPT Anchor Bay on the schedule over the last 10 years!

Just consider that the Marine Shity Manginas have managed to lose to local teams like St. Clair, Richmond, and come incredibly close to losing to teams that play in weak leagues. For example, in 2007 Marine City came within two points of losing to a 5-4 Warren Fitzgerald team...

With stats like that in mind, it's VERY REASONABLE to look at things logically and conclude that Marine City would have CONTINUED to lose to Anchor Bay at a rate of at least 50%. This is the ENTIRE REASON why the Marine Shity Manginas decided NOT to keep the local neighbor from the MAC White on the schedule.

Coach Bob, at least when I played, NEVER would have gave St. Clair that kind of credit. The coaches never would have given St. Clair that kind of credit.
The fact of the matter is, it doesn't matter when you played, or when I played. The fact of the matter is, it doesn't matter who the Marine City kids believed was their number one rival. And the fact of the matter is, it doesn't matter who Marine City's coaches actually believed their number one rival is.

The ONLY FACT THAT MATTERS is the FACT that when coach Bob Staskiewicz spoke with the Times Herald newspaper, he SPECIFICALLY SAID that "The St. Clair Saints are our biggest rival every year."

Go to a local public library and "look it up" for yourself...They keep newspapers on file.

When my friends and I would read that, we would say "What about Marysville." EVERYONE on the team knew that Marysville was "the target," because they were the team we looked up to and had respect for, since they beat us over 90% of the time. St. Clair was a worthless team that only beat Marine City about 10% of the time.

The FACT is, coach Bob was NOT WILLING to PUBLICLY acknowledge that he cared about beating Marysville...and that was WHY so many Marine City kids and so many coaches in the area lost respect for coach Bob.

We need to be realistic. Ever since Marysville's legendary coach Walt Braun retired in 1998, Marine City has been able to win an "outright," league championship almost every year. Winning an "outright" league championship was something that took Marine City's coach Bob Staskiewicz THIRTEEN YEARS to accomplish when Braun was at Marysville!...

OBVIOUSLY, the clear reason why Marine City has enjoyed so much more success in the league they play in is because Marysville is no longer coached by Braun...either that or because Daryn Letson joined the Marine City staff at about the same time...but the decision is up to you in regards to what was more important.

...And we need to be realistic, the ONLY REASON you "respect" guys like Mark Caza is because they are so good at LOSING, and starting new traditions, such as three-year losing streaks, and LOSING to Cros-Lex for the first time in school history...

With Mark Caza as coach at Marysville, it means Marine City is guaranteed of a win each year...And that is what Pussy Scarcelli likes! "Scoring" against easy bitches is what Tony Scarcelli has based his life on. That's why people have recently realized that he DESERVES NO RESPECT, now that Marine City has been placed under a larger microscope.

...And by the way, you are correct about the 1991 Marine City vs Cros-Lex score. I was thinking of the 1989 game when Cros-Lex beat Marine City. In 1991 it was Imlay City that Marine City had lost to.

It is YOU who NEEDS (I mean NEEDS) to "look it up," because you OBVIOUSLY have NO IDEA what you are talking about!

When you talk about Flint Powers and say "6-7 disctrict championship,"...and "2-3 regional championships" it makes you look like a JACKASS!

"2-3 regional championships" is a difference of 50%! So get your story straight before you write crap like that!

I don't doubt that Flint Powers is one of the top-50 programs in the state, but they are NOT one of the top-25.

And regardless of what Flint Powers "program" history is, their 2007 team was only 6-3, and doesn't come close to ranking as one of their better teams. 2007 was a disappointing season for Flint Powers.

My co-workers and I are laughing right now, because you actually were STUPID enough to say that you respect Mark Caza of Marysville. I thought of him again because I was writing about the top teams in the state. Marysville used to be arguably the #1 program in Michigan. When Braun retired, Jim Venia took it down a couple steps...But when Caza took over, the program was DESTROYED!...Marysville isn't even in the top-5 anymore, and they are plummeting more and more each year. In just a couple years, Marysville won't even be a top-10 program anymore.

A state champ might blow out a team like Kingsford by a similar score that they blow out Algonac, but the POINT is that the Point-Margin was NOT CLOSE!...The only difference is that the second-string players got more play time against a team like Algonac that they did against Kingsford.

But the FACT is that Kingsford was NOT GOOD in 2007...Kingsford's coaches specifically said that they NEVER would have expected the 2007 team to win a Regional championship. The 2007 team from Kingsford was their least-talented team in quite a while. Marine City was LUCKY to play against a team so weak in the semi-finals...Weak competition was the ONLY REASON why Marine City won a state championship. That's why Marine City earned no respect and is called a "paper champ."

You may not think the MAC Gold is much competition for the Mariners, but it's far more than they were getting with the likes of Richmond, Algonac, Cros-Lex, and St. Clair. That's actually the reason they changed the state playoff system awhile back, because many schools in weak conferences would go 8-1 and not make the playoffs simply because the teams they were beating were not competitive.
And there lies the fault in your little arguement. Marine City had a playoff score of over 100 this year. You get that type of a playoff score by playing quality schools.
First, now that the 6-3 Cros-Lex team beat the 8-1 Clintondale team in the playoffs, and the Clintdonale team had beaten the 9-0 Marine City team, it proves several things:

1. Cros-Lex's 2008 team is better than the 2008 team of either Marine City or Clintondale.

2. Marine City would NOT have won the league title if they played in the BWAC.

3. If Cros-Lex was in the MAC Gold, Marine City would NOT have won the MAC Gold.

4. The only reason why Marine City and Clintondale had such good "records" is because they played such weak competition--deliberately scheduled weak competition.

The FACT is, Marine City is NOT WILLING to keep tough teams on the schedule for over two-years!...NOT ONE non-league team over the last 25 years has been on Marine City's for more than two years!...

In fact, many times Marine City will lose get BLOWN OUT to a team like Lake Orion or Warren Cousino, and then have that team off the schedule in just ONE YEAR!...Melvindale and Lansing Sexton were the most recent examples.

The FACT is, there ARE TWO REASONS WHY Marine City has such a high-winning percentage over the last 10 years:

1. Marine City has ALWAYS DELIBERATELY SCHEDULED the WEAKEST non-league opponents possible. Weak MAC Blue teams like Sterling Heights and Fraser are worth a LOT of playoff points! Sterling Heights didn't even make the playoffs, but they were worth over 120 weighted playoff points, even though they had only 5 wins!(80+40+)...

And the ONLY REASON why Marine City ended up with so many playoff points this year was because the Class-A enrollment teams from East Detroit and Lanse Cruese are SO DEVASTATINGLY BAD that they were actually downgraded from the MAC Blue to the MAC Gold!...That's what happens when you only win ONE game in THREE YEARS!...But East Detroit was STILL worth a whopping 88+ weighted playoff points!

2. The other reason Marine City has such a high winning percentage over the last 10 years is because THEY NO LONGER FACE TOUGH LEAGUE COMPETITION!...Now that Marysville SUCKS and has 0-9 seasons, and Marine City no longer faces teams like Cros-Lex and Imlay City, there is NO RISK of losing a league game!

Overall, WEAK COMPETITION is the reason for Marine City's "statistical" success and paper championships.

This little debate is pointless. You hate MC football. You're a Marysville fan. That's cool. Sorry to hear that your program is in the dumps...but at least they made the playoffs this year...maybe they're improving.

Marine City football is dominant. Whether you think they should play different teams is irrelevant. They play the schedule they are dealt, 2 league rivals (Marysville and St. Clair) and 2 MAC Blue teams. Just like EVERY other MAC Gold School...2 rivals...and 2 MAC Blue teams. I guess you should be mad at the MAC, not MC.

And before you become the biggest Cros-Lex fan in history...Cros Lex hasn't beaten the Mariners in 18 years. The fact that Clintondale played like GARBAGE (I was at the game) and lost by 1 point is irrelevant to what MC would do in the Blue Water league...and what would they do??? DESTROY the Blue Water teams. It wouldn't even be fair. And you also conveniently left out that MC beat Richmond in the 1st round this year EASILY...a big, bad Blue Water team...

dude nobody here is a marysville fan and it sounds like nobody here is a marine city fan either. and the only sort of hatred i see people have against marine city football is their coaches who show a shitload of bias and let players steal shit from other schools.

i think it is f-ing funny the way that you say marine city football is dominant...heres a tip for ya idiot, if a team doesn't even win a district championship, they aren't even close to being dominant.

and if you were at the first marine city vs clintondale game, you know that it was a fluke that marine city beat clintondale on the last play of the game. clintondale proved who should have won the first time when they played again and clintondale kicked marine city's a$$ across the field.

as far as cros-lex vs clintondale goes, i was at that game too. cros-lex could have beaten clintondale by more than one touchdown if it wasn't for the bad weather. maybe you remember the fact that cros-lex actually missed a field goal because of the wet field.

and just so your stupid a$$ knows, marysville isn't even in the same league as marine shity anymore. the marine shity manginas think its cool to play teams in shitty leagues like the mac silver, mac blue, and mac bronze. you don't see marine city playing teams in the mac red or mac white.

for christ's sake, marine shity only played 3 teams with a winning record in 2008...a pee wee team could have good record playing against the worst program in the country from east detroit. that team only won a single f-ing game in 3 f-ing years!

it's easier to score against a team like east detroit or lanse creuse than it is to score on an mc coaches daughter on prom night!

Do you READ? Did I not post TWICE now that every MAC Gold schools schedules TWO RIVALRY GAMES and TWO MAC BLUE GAMES. EVERY MAC GOLD school. Should Marine City drop St. Clair? No...it's a district rival and there's no way the MAC would even allow that. It's against the scheduling rules. Look it up. And should Marine City drop Marysville?

Friend, I wish to debate what you had to say to the other man in three brief areas.

First, the MAC Gold is absolutely not a tough league. In fact, I agree with all the people who point out that the MAC Gold is significantly weaker than the SCAL league ever was. If you want proof, all you need to do is look at the numbers.

For example, there are six teams in the MAC Gold football league. Of the six teams that are in the MAC Gold league, four of the teams had a losing season. The only reason why Clintondale and Marine City had win/loss records with so many wins is because they played such weak teams from the MAC Blue football league, MAC Silver football league, and MAC Bronze football league.

Second, I remember the Times Herald newspaper specifically said "Marine City should have lost to Clintondale," when picking who would win games the following weeks. Clintondale did not win on the last play of the game when they beat Marine City. In fact, Clintondale once again had a comfortable lead of over 10 points. But this time Clintondale did now allow the comeback to occur.

Third, Detroit Country Day was a much better team in 2008 than they were in 2007. Marine City's team from 2008 or 2007 would have been easily defeated by a wide margin if playing against Detroit Country Day's 2008 team.

Remember, Marine City's 2007 team was called a "Cinderella Story" because they played such weak competition in the playoffs, and won close games against teams such as a very untalented 5-4 team from Warren Fitzerald where the margin of victory was only 2 points. Obviously Detroit Country Day's 2008 team is much more talented than Warren Fitzgerald's 2007 team.

It's very obvious indeed that Marine City would have been defeated by the same wide margin or wider margin than Cros-Lex was by Detroit Country Day in 2008, especially when you consider that Cros-Lex defeated the team that defeated Marine City. In all likelihood, Marine City would have been defeated by a wider margin.

I hope this helps you understand things, my friend. You need to realize that for decades Marine City's primary accomplishment was making the playoffs in an era when making the playoffs was twice as easy. Obviously this was not an impressive accomplishment in the grand scheme. Each time Marine City faced a quality opponent in the playoffs, Marine City was defeated by a very wide margin that was quite embarrassing.

Clintondale was not a quality opponent. Clintondale was an opponent who had a very impressive win/loss record, simply because of the fact that the athletic director schedules very weak teams to play against. This is the exact same scheduling strategy that Marine City has used for the last 25 years. This scheduling strategy has caused Marine City to receive a lot of embarrassment, too.

Wow. You've resorted to taking on alternate personalities to re-state your arguement? That's sad.

There are teams in the MAC Bronze and MAC Silver that are not good enought to play in the MAC Gold...so I guess MC is at least better than them right? And the teams that ran away from the MAC competition to play in the Blue Water League...they can't be better.

You're wrong...you can change your name 100 times to pretend you are new people posting the same garbage...but it's still garbage.

Hating on croslex is stupid. They were losing to clintondale at the end if you were paying attention. They forced a fumble with two minutes and thirty seconds left when they couldve walked off the field, heads down, and let Clintondale when. But they didn't they played til the end. They won. Something your team wouldn't do. They got beat by a private school who sent five players to d1 football. How dare they!

Take a look at this website above.

Anthony Scarcelli is street trash, just like his dad.

And Joel Whymer is a political sellout just like his dad, Jim Whymer -- sports editor of the Times Herald newspaper. He was hired by Marine City High School thanks to references from the MC coaches (Scarcelli), at a job that will pay over $70,000 per year with just a bachelors degree!

Think about these facts:

* Joel Whymer - His dad is the Times Herald Sports Editor. Tony Scarcelli's son received an award he DID NOT DESERVE from the Times Herald because Joel Whymer was able to use references from the MC coaches to help him get hired. Everyone knows Jim Whymer was so thankful for this he proved it by giving Scarcelli's kid an award he didn't deserve as the Blue Water Player of the Year.

* Anthony Scarcelli wasn't even voted as Team MVP on Offense or Defense by his 2010 teammates! If your teammates don't even vote you as the best player on the team, WHY would you be selected by the Times Herald as the Areas Best Player!

* Anthony Scarcelli was voted only #8 in the Online Poll voting for Player of the Year. Nobody could believe it when the Times Herald allowed him to make it to the Final 5...let alone be chosen #1.

* Tony Scarcelli and the MC coaches did NOT even NOMINATE Jamel Abrams as Player of the Year! Just so you know, Abrams was selected as Team MVP by his teammates, NOT Anthony Scarcelli! Scarcelli, Glodich, and Letson were so BIASED that they did NOT NOMINATE Jamel Abrams because they knew it would take votes away from Anthony Scarcelli -- the coaches kid.

* Ryan Fabbri of Cros-Lex had BY FAR the BEST stats of ANYONE in the Blue-Water Area! When MC beat Cros-Lex by 1 point in the playoffs, we saw Fabbri was WAY BETTER than Scarcelli in EVERY WAY! Fabbri looked like a man playing against boys! The fact that the Times Herald did NOT award the honor to Ryan Fabbri CONFIRMS the bias to the point that we already know Anthony Scarcelli will be GIVEN this award in 2011, since NOBODY will have better stats in 2011 than Fabbri did in 2010!

Okay, I'm done responding to the nonsense of this person named duh. You obviously are a butt kisser of Scarcelli or ScaredSellout...whatever he is called since running away from the #3 rated MAC Blue league he was assigned to join, just so he could stay in the #4 rated MAC Gold league. That was so pathetic it dishonored me as an MC grad!

Go host a golf tournament or sponsor something, and then give the money to Scarcelli. He won't make you claim taxes on it, and it will buy your children starting positions and awards from the Times Herald.
