Youth soccer coach's joke taken to heart

There are 8 comments on the Connecticut Post story from Mar 31, 2009, titled Youth soccer coach's joke taken to heart. In it, Connecticut Post reports that:

A Massachusetts youth soccer coach told parents in an e-mail his team of 6- and 7-year-old girls would be known as "Green Death," encouraged them to feed their daughters "undercooked red meat" and said "losing is for losers." Coach Michael Kinahan has since resigned from the Scituate Youth Soccer League.

Parents THAT over-sensitive should have their little girls in ballet classes instead of a field sport.

Seems like the coach had a sense of humor. Too bad that political correctness does not allow for such a thing...

lol, I like this guy. Some parents need to get over themselves. All they had to do was go talk to the man if they didnt like it....

I don't find his comments offensive..they were meant for the adults who should be able to handle a little humour. Sounds like a fun town. The girls probably would have had a blast with him as coach..and isn't that the point really? Sounds like some uptight mommies up there in Scituate.
