Name calling? I said he was a bully - thats a fact. Calling 12 and 13 yr olds derogatory names that wouldnt be overlooked if he said them on a public street is being a bully and intimidating - just because it takes place on a football field doenst excuse it.

Personal attack? I just shared what I saw with my own eyes - the truth bothers some people when it paints someone in a negative light..As I said before, he was dedicated and looking at just pure football knowledge, he helped the kids get better - but at what price? Ive talked to former players of his - kids who havent played for him in 3 or 4 years - and they still have negative feelings about playing for him...

If your son wasnt afraid of him, he must have been one of his fair-haired boys that didnt receive his wrath - there were a couple of kids each season that escaped this treatment...I can see where your son could respect him because these few players who didnt get bullied by him returned the respect he gave them. But for the majority of kids who were subjected to his loud-mouth bullying tactics, I dont think they respected him because his behavior towards them certainly didnt convey that their coach respected them. If you're called a piece of crap enough times, you end up believing it when your 13 yrs old...
The thing that amazed me the most is that this old-school coaching behavior of yelling and screaming and belittling players which was so prevalent in the 1960's and 1970's was done by a 20-something coach. If he had been able to control his temper, he had a bright future as a coach.

I think it is pretty sad when you can go on a computer and talk about someone using their name and even bring in their family when that person can not even defend theirselves. That is what upsets me. BJ isn't here to defend himself or his father from what you people are saying. I find that pathetic. You have a righ to believe and feel the way you do but you do not have the right to slander BJ or Chief Tempest.

I didn't refer to or mention his father at all - please point out where you infer I said that...

Slander is the communication of a statement that makes a false claim...What I talk about are actual first hand observations of his behavior toward his players.

Enough,cry me a river...if your in the public eye as a coach a police chief a mayor or any other public figure you open yourself up to criticism and comments both negative and positive. If you want to be a private citizen then stay just that don't opt for the limelight and you can call me any name you want its no skin off my nose I don't know you and wouldn't care if I did goof ball.

So when they get to Jr high they will have a coach who knows what he is doing, or will he have a teacher who wants some extra cash pretending to know what he is doing or maybe the merrygoround Ringgold had prior to the current Coach getting there. I think it is very presumptive to think that no one has ability to coach because they are not politicaly connected to get a jr or sr high job. Gary dongilli is one of the best High School coaches in Pennsylvania yet he isn't coaching due to politics. Just a few thoughts of my own.

I think there's a lot of good coaches that aren't able or willing to coach because of the politics that exist in the Wildcat Organization!!

A big problem with youth sports are the parents networking on the field and on the sidelines in order to gain control of things so that they can coach their "own kids" the way they want. What decent coach would want involved in that?

People should coach youth sports because they know the game and they enjoy teaching children. Instead you tend to have groups of parents running around hatcheting each other to obtain a "YOUTH ORGANIZATION TITLE" that makes them feel that they are an authority on this by-law or that by-law or this technique or that technique or that "look how much I I I do" all about me attitude. Parents need to stop stroking their own egos and their kids egos by placing themselves in positions that should be filled by people that actually know what they are doing -- especially football where a child taught incorrectly can be seriously injured!!

Also, I think that people running the organization should also have some sense of business smarts so that they can actually maintain the numbers and profits and rules that are necessary to make a successful organization!!

As I thought they would -- out of touch and the majority of coaches should not be coaching.

I think that the commitment of these VOLUNTEERS should be commended. They gave up every weekday evening and every Saturday for three months to be there for the children. Imagine how many evenings they would have liked to have just gone home after work and put their feet up. But they didn't. They showed up at the field. Night after night. These people are fathers and mothers who are trying to set good examples of leadership and commitment not only to their own sons and daughters, but to the rest of the kids as well.

My message to the coaches of both the Wildcat Cheerleaders and the Wildcat Football Teams is THANK YOU!!

LOL I like the thought of you guys...i'm incendiary, nuts, and clueless. I bet you don't even know what those words mean. I was just asking!!! People have alot to say on this blog, but no one wants to speak the truth or challenge those who are "in charge". It's my understanding that there is an organizational meeting coming up in the near future...anyone know when it is??? If so, I would like to attend!!! I've got some questions/comments/concerns to address. And anonymous, I agree with your statement about the commitment of the volunteers who made this happen...whether you like them or not, they gave up alot of their spare time to make the organization fun for the kids. Yes there were some bumps and bruises during the season, but it wouldn't have happened without these people stepping up to the plate. Congrats to all the kids who put in alot of long hours and hard work, especially when school started, and held their commitments to their fellow teammates. You guys are great!

That is a very mean and hurtfull statement. Many of these coaches are over qualified to be coaching midget league football. I think that it is time for these coaches to move on and let all of the know it alls coach.
