The only thing that surprises me about charges being brought against JB Suiter, is that it took this long for it to happen!!!

Did half of you even see what happened? Probably not! You say something should have happened earlier, give me an instance of something that has happened in the past? He has had no other complaints like this brought against him!

Didnt have to see what happened, I know from past experience he has a hard time keeping his temper under control. He likes to yell, cuss, and scream, and YES, he has grabbed players by their jersey,and by their face mask in softball. The verbal abuse is HORRIBLE!!! Nothing new here, just a long time coming....

He has DEFINITELY had complaints, I did some myself. He deserves to be fired, he doesn't need to work with kids.

When I was in High School, our football coach smoked.
He would get mad and blow smoke in our face literally. He didn't think twice about getting in a stance...no pads and if you were not ready you got knocked on your ass.
This is why I'm a winner not a whiner. We are raising a nation of pre madonnas and it has to stop.
Let the coaches coach. They have to respect/fear him whatever it takes to understand the word team.
Leaders are born from this, not from every body wins.

Feeling threatened is grounds for pressing charges? Still playing? Sounds like somebody needs to put on some big boy panties. The continued pussification of America, I guess.

It is against the law to make someone feel threatened BUT he actually laid hands on the kid. I don't think its your made up word at all. In fact, if the kid had defended himself he would have been in trouble.

Appropriate physical contact is a necessary part of normal human interaction. Think about it: no high-5s, no handshakes, no pats on the back, no stopping an inattentive pedestrian from stepping in front of a moving vehicle, ... . Touching/holding a child is not necessarily bad, not even if the child is a teenager. Be careful for what you ask. I have a hard time questioning putting hands on a misbehaving student if there is no injury or explicit threat thereof. Feelings should not be grounds for determining if a crime has occured.

No, sweetheart. You are changing the context of the grab. Unwanted advances, contact made out of anger or frustration, those are the discussion. NOT high fives and atta boys. The fact is, you can have a hard time understanding it, but its the law.

Could you be specific about which TN law was broken when the coach touched the face of his player?

Assault dumbass

Were any marks left on the player? Were there any bruises left? If no, then I do not believe it qualifies for pressing charges. Simply turning the player's face towards you (not slapping his face or shaking his face) so that eye contact is made does not, in my eyes, qualify as assault. So, unless you actually saw it happen, you cannot say whether it was truly assault or not. The whole thing is being taken extremely too far.

You might want to do some reading on what assault is and what assault is not...this incident was not an assault.

The key words in your post are "in my eyes". In the eyes of the law there do not have to be marks or bruises. Its not really a matter of YOUR opinion... its the law. Its a shame that you think it is acceptable to force a persons face to look at you...I bet you don't do that at your job. If you have one.

Please do tell me how he has made difference because of skin color. If anything he is racist against his own color because 90% of the guys on that team that play are African American. One maybe two white guys actually get playing time!
. That's all good, but I know what I'm talking about. You don't have to agree with it, I don't care if you do or don't.

Its called demanding respect and that lesson is not being taught to the youth today. Kids talk awful to teachers and some coaches and they know you can't do anything about it. Then, when a teacher does a lil something like: detention, licks, write offs or whatever, here comes moma and daddy saying "not my baby, he is not doing that". I was raised by a father that busted my tail when ANY ADULT said I did wrong. There was no other side to the story. I thank God for it every day too. If the parent of that child was raising a respectful and responsible MAN, he would always look people in the eye. COME ON

Former players father wrote:
My son played for Coach Suiter and recently graduated. Yes, we are an african american family. He took my son's team to a memphis grizzlies game and gave them nothing but the best. Jb has done nothing but offer my son help and assistance when needed. I have had encouraging conversations with him. He does nothing but try to prepare the players for the real world. If some of these boys talk to their boss one day like they talk to coach Suiter then they will be fired on the spot. Any child that has a good home bringin knows better than to talk to their elders the way some of these boys talk to him. I have been to most games this year as a fan now without a player on the team and I can't believe how selfish this group of players are. Getting mad at each other on the court cuz one won't pass it to the other. More worried about how many points they score instead of if the team wins. Walking off the floor when one of their teammates comes in for them instead of encouraging them. It's pathetic to watch. I know my son's team never acted like this and never had any complaints about coach Suiter! It's embarrassing when people bring race into something that has no racial value but just uses it as an excuse.
Not an excuse, don't care what you say.
