Any parent who leaves their child below the age of (picking an arbitrary #) 12, with adults and minors they have not personally vetted and taken the time to oversee, is too lax to deserve that precious child.

By the age of 5, children can be taught to distinguish most appropriate from inappropriate behavior of adults. Parents are responsible for doing just that. Parents are also responsible for enabling their children to be comfortable enough to be honest with them.

The problem is... the human brain doesn't mature until post adolescence. A parent may trust their child to do the right thing but that is wishful thinking.

Watch YOUR child. Vent every organization and person YOUR child spends time with. Do it yourself if you really care.

Dare I suggest that Travel Teams and Tournaments for prepubescent children is just palin WRONG?
Dare I suggest that parents lobbying for their young children be included in adult

I see Richard is back...stop protecting your drunken buddy...Guidos was arrested for DUI and all you have to do is read the paper...yawn.
All vols should be checked once a year such as coaches, board members, umpires, etc. As "Fix It" stated, background checks once a year just like PIAA.
Like I asked before.....isn't there another coach who got a DUI?? What is the status on that man???

I have heard all about Scott Guidos. Why is QYBA even opening themselves up for this scrutiny? Guidos needs to go and if the board is protecting him and justifying why he should be involed at any level, the board needs to go, too. Someone needs to pick up the phone and call the board.

Why is it such a big deal if the man made a mistake.He wasn't coaching at the time and i'm sure noone had a problem with him before this incident.As far as the other man why bring him into this?Everyone is allowed their personal time to do what they want.Kids have not been affected so let it be.You need to look alot deeper into QYBA's coaches and you may notice the coach who prefers a special beverage over water and he is actively coaching.
As far as politics,I never thought QYBA would be up there in B.S. like QMFA.Sure fall ball registration went up but be careful spring isn't looking so good.I've heard about the winter practice team and how where the kids picked to play?Think long and hard you can volunteer,coach,give donations,and be a sponosor and nothing matters if you're not in the right seat!!!!!!!!!

NO this has not gone on for years.Like i said there is no explaination needed as to who is picked.That is why the statement was made about QYBA becoming just as political as QMFA.As far as the practice team goes it is not only 12 year olds!!!!

Really they don't travel to tournaments or to Cooperstown I guess all the fund raising is pocketed by QYBA then. So I beg to differ get your facts straight. And as stated earlier my children have been gone from the league for years and the teams were hand picked then and still are!

When will the board of directors finally put an end to Scott Guidos having any position within the organization as a coach or member?

Ignoring or defending is to condone the criminal actions of this person. Those people are just as guilty as he is.

What business, you may wonder.
Mr Guidos had the unmitigated effrontery to be elected by his neighbors to a position Patrick Murphy (the ear guy) vied for. Those who knew Murphy best and saw him at the polling place at which he hoped to continue being Judge of Elections judged him and chose Guidos instead.
Low and behold- Mr. Guidos has been the topic of repetitive negative entries on these threads ever since! Only the Gringo knows why.

Someone dug back to Jan. to restart this thread.

Whoever could be harboring enough hatred of another Richland Township volunteer?
Hmmmmm.....

Could someone be trying to take attention away from the Mike Z and Amy Z threads that have had some action today? Drawing attention to Richland volunteers, officials, employees and of course, Woldow to deflect from the Z's?

This thread is about QYBA and Scott Guidos' expulsion, not Mike and Amy Zowniriw.
