Last night while watching my 6th grade son practice, I once again hear the head coach of the 7th grade team go on a yelling spree and cut their practice short. After my son called one of the 7th graders to find out what happened, I got the story & here it goes:
Apparently 1 of the "star" players had told one of the other coaches F-You, but used the actual word. Which anybody who has seen the 7th grade practice or game can hear numerous cuss words from these players. So the head coach chewed them out and was so upset he cut practice short. GOOD FOR HIM!

BUT, let's see what he does for Saturday's game. Most coaches wouldn't even let a player like that on the sidelines. I bet he still plays them. As I understand it, only a few players are actually the cussers that everyone hears, yet they always play every week, hardly ever coming off the field. When will the coach finally say enough is enough an bench these kids. I hope we find out Saturday!

I'll be blunt. Cursing is a normal part of a 7th grader's language. Surely you haven't already forgotten that. And as a former football player, cursing was very normal in practice. Not saying acceptable, but normal.

Cursing a coach is a different animal. If the coach is cursed then the kid should either sit out the game or have to run "until he pukes" aka, run a mile unless we've gotten so soft now that making a kid run as discipline is somehow abuse.

If so concerned volunteer to coach, i ripped the cussers , im right out in the open if you have concerns you should bring them to me instead of posting on a crappy web site such as this, problems should be taken care of in house. Your again setting the program up for failure due to gossip and back stabbing, those players you were refering to, also work out all year and NEVER miss practice , so i will take the drama out, they WILL play.

I like how the first post says I didn't here or know,what was said or happened. So basically your admitting you got your info 3rd party from a jr.kid. Fact of the matter is that 7th grade team is a very talented team Why do you people keep hiding behind a website or emails instead of going to the coach face to face. Mr Kirk does an outstanding job with this program and coaching. Kirk has with the help of other parents turned this program around for the better.
If the player mentioned was not a star player this post would not even have been posted, Star players will always be viewed and judged , for every little thing they do wrong. I was told by another coach an adult that the kid never cussed a coach out , he was getting impatient with one of the helpers for taking too long. Yes the player should not be disrespectful to an adult but at the same time I have all the faith in the world Coach Kirk ' took care of the problem.
Coach 'Kirk" Please tell those players to score TD's tomorrow and go wildcats , I hold the chains at high school games and my wife takes pictures for coach martin and our son played last year for the program and is a freshman QB and linebacker ,,, so go wildcats

There is nothing wrong with a young kid being disrespectful to an adult. And i agree problems should be taken care of in house and the outside world needs to but out. We need to be more like Penn State and handle things in house.

Never said it was ok to be disrespectful, all the parties involved agreed the situation was handled properly. And if handling things the way penn state handled things is the way you do it in your home, then thats on you.

Where are the parents of this child??? If that was my kid and he was disrespectful to an adult, his ass would be pulled by me and he wouldn't have to worry about if the coach was going to let him play or not. I WOULDN'T LET HIM. The kid would be lucky if he was able to sit!

If you were in junior high and you cursed at the principle, wouldn't you get suspended? I tell you what i love about america, you can disrespect an elder, your parents don't care, and our tax dollars pay for their public aide. What a country.

Truth is they are kids, it is an emotional game , true part of the game is self control, but i dont see taking a game away from the kid for a mistake.

Hey coach way to mold the youth of america. They can be distrespectful and suffer no penalty. Isn't that what coaching young kids about, molding them to be good citizens? We are talking about junior high football, even if he is the best player who gives a crap about if you lose the game. Losing the game by not playing him has a bigger impact on his life and a lesson learned then playing him just to try to win. Coach, you should resign immediately. If you continue you have no morals.
