I'm very happy with the coaching changes they made this year. Hopefully they continue that change all the way down to the middle school. A first year take over is always a little rocky and I think good thing will follow.

Also in a time where many parents, family members and community members choose not to help out, I'm grateful that this Org and the parents of this team actually have people that are willing to do so. I understand many people simply don't have the time and that is fine but it's sad that there are people out there that do have the time and simply don't care to lift one finger to help out in their community or school.

On a side note I wish the president of the Lady Rams Softball Boosters would tone it down about 5 notches, at least I think she is president. While she does a lot of work for the team, me and other parents are tired of her running her mouth about just about every player and parent. She bashes almost everyone and is a total, moody, obnoxious control freak. You have no power or authority, you are simply a booster member, get over yourself. The help is great but you mouth cancels it out.

I'm confused..can you spell contradiction? BIW, try telling her outright instead of hiding behind this post.

No contradiction at all besides her. The "help" is great, her "mouth, attitude and personality" sucks. Also she probably will hear about it soon as me and others are just about running out of tolerance and patient.

If her "mouth, attitude and personality" outweigh the benefit of her "great help" as you say..maybe you should be prepared to become her replacement.

Grow Up!..You don't even know if this lady is president or not leading me to believe just how informed you are of what's going on. What makes you any better than her if you feel the need to bad mouth her... on an internet forum no less.

Not just her good help but many people's good help. I'm guessing she will be replaced and thank god, that's what some parents definitely want. There's only about a hand full of games left. She'd be fine if she'd just tone it down, not bad mouth everyone and yell at the kids for her own moody reasons and nothing legitimate. Also I couldn't be the president of that boosters club unless I would stop participation in a few other youth groups I already belong too where I hold positions. I help out many places. But if the parents get to fed up and they ask me to do it or the spot needs filled I could move somethings around. Maybe one of the other mothers could replace me in the other org and I could step up here cause Id gladly do it, if it comes to that. Anything the benefits the girls and is more positive than negative. Thanks for the advice. I should talk to the parents since they also help in some of the other groups with me and see about swapping things around.

..Don't see any other parents complaining on this forum. Sometimes, just trying to talk to the person about your displeasure helps..Ranting on and on behind someone's back doesn't seem like a good quality to hold a position in any organization.

"ranting on and on" lol that's pretty dramatic, 1 post and then just courteously answering your questions is ranting on and on? Also I'm not part of these boosters although one of the unhappy parents are. The moms want it out, not behind her back. Maybe we can all send her anonymous emails. Lastly theres no need for this in my other orgs since we meet regularly, the floor is open for discussion, have a suggestion/complaint box/email and don't have this problem with anybody else. Thanks again for the advice though, think we'll try the email next.

The only drama on this forum is the drama created by you. Yes..ranting. You have complained about this women in every single post. Are the girls' as unhappy as the parents are with this woman? You can get on a forum and bash this women for everyone to read but you can't give her the courtesy (be an adult) to tell her how you and the others' feel about her face to face? Why didn't you try sending her an anonymous email (childish way out) before you ran her into the dirt on an internet forum?

First off, I would just like to say how ridiculous you sound. You are stooping to the height of a teenage girl by hiding behind a screen. True bully material. How does that make you any better than this so called anonymous lady? To top that off, why are talking crap on a lady you don't even know. And clearly you don't or you would know if she president or not. And I don't see you making any efforts to fix anything. Nor do I see anyone else trying to fix things. So tell me, is this really a problem or a personal conflict? but you don't know her, right? So, please, act your age and confront her or send an email with your name. I mean, if you even know her name. Once again, you don't need to stoop to dirt to try to make a point. Seriously, act your gosh darn age.

Dear Ringgold Mom, Please do us a favor and DO NOT run for an office position in Lady Rams Softball Boosters. An officer requires compassion and bravery, which you obviously lack. A true leader confronts problems and doesn't hide behind internet forums or anonymous emails. And sometimes a "mouth" is needed to get things accomplished. Our Boosters President has spent much time, gas, and energy to ensure that our players' needs are met. If you had a clue you would know that very few people in this organization stepped up to help. So rather than criticize, a thank you would have been more appropriate. The next meeting is Wednesday. You are encouraged to attend and voice your opinion. But had you attended them in the past you would know all opinions and offers of help are appreciated and accepted. That being said, I personally would like to thank all officers for their time and efforts spent in such selfless, thankless positions. Great job!

Awww some internet people are upset lol, doesn't change the fact people and players are unhappy with her with mouth and attitude. No personal direct conflict at all, just a distaste for how she carries herself and bashes most of the players and parents. She can get a thanks for the physical help, that I can appreciate since I do in other orgs myself but she gets no thanks for her mouth. Doing a job most people don't want and a job that I agree is thankless doesn't give one an excuse to be a grumpy control freak and bash most of the players and parents. I don't see other officers, players or moms doing this. I don't hear other complaints about other officers, moms or players, just her. So if the shoe fits it fits.

You are certainly entitled to your opinion. Hard to respect it when you elect to display it in such a cowardly manner. And what, if anything, have you contributed to the team this year?

Some internet people are upset? Please! Just because we disagree with your method of madness doesn't mean we are upset..don't flatter yourself, you don't deserve it! Quit whining about it, grow a set of softballs and tell the lady how you feel face to face then maybe you can get on with your pathetic life!

My only hope is that you are raising your children to be honest, trustworthy adults in a world where not enough of these qualities exist..you may want to try that shoe on for size as well!

Hold up..Did you just say you are not a part of these boosters?..So you started a forum to publicly bash a lady you don't even have any connections with? Wow, you're a real piece of work!

RinggoldMom, please attend the next booster meeting and encourage the other unhappy parents to come too. I'm sure the booster president will be happy to address your concerns. I'm guessing she'll even sign you up for a committee or two. Especially if you have any bright (or even not so bright) ideas!

Or, call her. Everyone has her cell and home phone. Or email her. She's pretty easy to get in touch with. Or find her at the game.

It's so very interesting, that the ones who complain, moan and groan behind the scenes, are the ones who never show up to help and always talk about the people doing all the work for an organization.

Just wanted to thank y'all for posting all this crap and confirming that no local sports teams in the valley can exist without high levels of inane babble. I have yet to see one player/kid get involved with ur crap. Makes you wonder who the grown ups are. Keep embarrassing urselves - it's fun to watch.

Hey, SouthPark Dad from Charleroi..what's the matter? Nice to see drama somewhere else besides your own back yard? Guys usually aren't so petty! If it is "confirmation" you are seeking from an internet forum based on opinion then I'm sure you won't be disappointed. LOL!

Here's the thing - If YOU don't like how this organization is run, step up and do something. I have personally heard the President of this booster organization beg and plead for parents to help with or run a committee. The same few people are volunteering, and the President of the boosters is busting her butt, donating her time, and for what? To be bashed because she has a loud mouth? Really? At least things are getting done.

Personally I would like to thank Sharon, Kris, Paulette and Rochelle, and for every parent that has offered their help, for everything, and I mean everything, they do. They all deserve kudos for what they do for YOUR children. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
