I want to say Congratulations to the Straw Plains Raiders Little League Grasscutter Football Team.

The Raiders fell an extra point short of tying the game up with about 3 minutes left and we couldn't get the ball back before time ran out 14-13.

No PEE WEE team in the area can compete with White Pine this year. This includes Morristown and any other local leagues. The 2nd and 3rd strings were brought in no later than the middle of the second quarter in each of these games. Go Cyclones!
New Center- 48-6
Sevier County- 48-12
Dandridge- 48-16

well that doesn't tell me anything about Talbott,ya'll. They have some new coaches and I was just wondering if anyone knows if they are any good? I don't want my kid to be on a crappy team with coaches who don't know football!

Children in these counties don't ever stand a chance! This is supposed to be for the kids!!!! A bunch of adults living vicariously through their children! Really people, really??? Who cares what team wins or loses? It is supposed to be for the kids!!! If everyone got to play, and all these stupid men were not so worried about a stupid children's super bowl, think how much you could actually teach these kids! English Mountain and all the leagues in it are absolutely PATHETIC!!

Are "these men" doing the kids any favors by teaching them that mediocrity is good??? Or telling them winning is not part of the game? Thats whats wrong with sports now days! When I was a kid if you didn't make the team or didn't get to play, you went back and worked harder and tried to do better! Now its all "just do the best you can sweetie" and we wonder why kids aren't as tuff as they were when we were growing up! And the kids don't want to stink either. Do you think it makes them proud or feel good to get their butt kicked every week? UH, NO... They want to do well and bust their little butts trying to get better and win the "stupid childrens super bowl" because they want to have something to be proud of... to accomplish something besides simply showing up! Some kids don't get to play as much, because EVERYONE isn't a football player! If they were then EVERYONE would play high school, then college, then NFL. I just love hhow people who DON'T KNOW THE COACHES or FOOTBALL, DON'T actually DO ANYTHING TO HELP are the one's who talk junk and are the EXPERTS about HOW THINGS SHOULD BE. If people want to help kids, get ur butt off the bench and get involved in the game!
ARE YOU SERIOUS

lucy, then you mustve been one of the kids on the sidelines, who never felt the sense of being part of a "team"...The kids care about who wins or who loses!its about being the best you can be, and there ALOT of coaches who dont even have kids that coach, but are out there in it day after day after day because of their knowledge and passion for the game, they are passing it on to others who will benefit and succeed once given the opportunity. Do u seriously think these kids want to be part of a losing team?? Duhhhhhhh.wake up!you either obviously dont have children, dont know much or very little about sports, or are just that simple minded.They have practice to "teach the kids" thats what the word prcatice means, to teach,the games are for competition,to learn, to gain knowledge, and the word WIN is in everyones vocabulary, if your not first, your 2nd, or 3rd..LOSER, and no one wants to be a LUCY... There is NOTHING stupid about a "stupid childrens super bowl" the reason its played is "FOR THE KIDS", so Lucy, go back to whatever it is you were doing before posting your "stupid" blog about something YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT! and quit being a Lucy
