i just know that when the minutemen ran him off the raiders took him in, even though his incompitence is simply amazing. I dont know one person that who has worked closely with him that thinks he is qualified to be the commissioner of that league.

As a Parent, a Board Member, a President, I can say that it's not easy. Things don't always come in on time. No one's sizes are EVER right. REORDERS ALWAYS have to happen. Food items are almost impossible to deliver to everyone, so they can get them delivered to who they sold to. Those orders are NEVER right as well. The porta johns are NEVER cleaned when they tell us they will be.(lol) Schedules were SOMETIMES on time. Scheduling for our concession was ALWAYS a pain in the tail.(The same parents ended up working it every week.) Donations were always hard to come by, and we could always count on the gracious ones we did have that were faithful each year... Don't know what we would have done without you. THANKS! Refs have to be paid. Fields have to be lined, and mowed. There are so many other things I can't write because Topix won't give me any more room. Do any of you all sign up for these things? Have you asked what all needs to be done? Or, do you just show up for the practices and games and think the football fairy does all of this stuff? After the games, do you run off the field with your child and leave, or do you grab a trash bag and get under the bleachers and go around the field picking up garbage? Now, I'm now one to fuss, but please don't get on here and complain about all of these people... I was with the MM years ago. I don't know who is on the Board now, but offer your help. If they don't want it. Then you might complain, but I'm sure they probably need it. Let the kids be kids. You will run into more of this at the Middle and High School Levels, and after all is said and done... it was just a game. Let them make friends & enjoy it. Have a great season guys!

That is true the schedules were especially hard this year. Their are 8 teams (2 MM, 2 Charger, 4 Bluefield) using Mitchell Stadium so that has to be organized with field availability (especially if Graham has a Saturday home game which the usually have at least one), on top of that Hunnicutt wasn't available to the Raiders for the first couple of weeks of the season. Plus he tries to help everyone out with special requests such as can't play on Sunday because of church and things like that.

Then you had teams splitting at the last minute which caused more trouble which led to the schedule having to be gone over again. On top of all that the games have to be scheduled in a way to get referees to each game.

I think Dennis does a good job in the time that he has while dealing with all the petty bickering of some of the teams. He should actually be commended not torn down on a stupid gossip site.

What is wrong with sharing the field? From what I understand the field doesn't belong to the school! The 4-H camp owns it and allows it to be used for MM and Glenwood.

I read the Princeton Times article. She is right the field needs work and the boys do not have weight lifting etc... they do need this stuff. As long as she remembers the middle school boys would not be where they are without the pee-wee midget league setting a foundation in order to get them ready for middle school.

I think miss Robinette needs to know that the field is for all the kid's. Were does she think the future glenwood football team will come from. My child plays for the MM. But in a year when he is able to play for glenwood. I'm not sure I will let him if people like her are running things at the school.

Sadly she has a long history of keeping things stirred up. Her grandson will move to the high school next year, so until then she will probably remain a thorn in the side of many.

I heard him telling another coach that the kids on our pee wee team was just a bunch of candies, I lost a lot of respect for him then.

You couldn't be more wrong! The coaches were so upset after the peewee game they didn't even want to play the midget game without different reffs they couldn't get in contact with the person in charge of these issues in time. The peewee game was completely upsetting our boys played such a good game, they could and should have won if the reffs were fair. I don't know how they can sleep at night knowing they cheated a bunch of kids. The midget game just added fuel to the fire! So many bad calls! The coaches were upset over both games not just the midget game. Our peewee coaches have done an amazing job with our boys. They have more then half the team 1st year players. They are great coaches and the kids love and respect them.
