Thanks to the DRAFT, if you can call it that, they got these kids spread out all over the place...why couldn't they have left the teams under their middle school and not done this North/South crap? You just got alot of kids no longer with their friends and parents having to drive longer distances for practices. Don't even get me started on the travel crap they got gong on now. How many kids have left b/c it's a joke!

Yeah that wasn't like any draft I've ever seen. It is a joke. We do need to come together as parents and fight for our kids.

In my opinion, it's not the board or the president that ruins youth football in this town. It's the handful of trashy, mouthy, immature parents you see posting here.

If you're lucky you only get one on every team, if you're unlucky you get 2-3.

You guys go ahead and band together and pull your kids from the league. The rest of us won't miss you. I guarantee it's about 12-15 of these parents with nothing better to do than to find drama where none would exist without them.

A draft IS necessary.

Without a draft, you would have one coach going out and recruiting all the best kids for his team.

You would have an all star team playing against the rest of the kids.
Then you would have a legitimate complaint.

The coaches decide what they want the kids to do in the try outs.

Shame on all of you who don't realize the huge amount of work that goes along with these UNPAID VOLUNTEER positions.
There are literally dozens of people working their tails off to make sure YOUR kids have the opportunity to play sports.
I doubt all of you complainers have a list of great excuses why you can't volunteer your time.

And FYI, I am not affiliated with vigo football, but I am very involved with baseball. I'm sure we have a lot of the same "problems" in common.

For those of you reading this who don't agree with the complainers, thank a coach, team mom, or board member for their work. Trust me, it goes a long way.

I agree a draft is necessary when done in a fair manner. In this leagues case, not so. This is the problem, no one understands unless there child is in the league. I'm greatful for the volunteers that help, there are some wonderful coaches, but there are others that are not in it for all the kids out there on the field. I have a nephew that plays in this league and has for a few years, and it just seems to be going in the wrong direction. I pray the people in charge are doing right by these children and the hard working families paying an arm and leg to be in this league. I'd like to see someone like Bobby F. that runs the Boys Club be the president. He is a wonderful man and truely loves helping the kids. He's be the type of person this league need to get it back where it needs to be...seriously!

The more you talk the more you give yourself away! Your the dad that threw a fit in front of your son's whole team and their parents. How embarrassing for him! The parents truly felt sorry for him because your kid just wants to play football. Lets get one thing straight, playing with the avenue kids is making your son look bad because they are much better players than your kid! Here's a lesson for you...your kid is on a team, he is NOT the team. Now keep living your dreams through your son, I'm sure he'll get as far as you did! LMAO

P.S. The way he's playing this year and because you are not personal friends with his coach, lets see if he makes all stars this year! LOL

Please explain how the draft wasn't fair.

I heard that from some parents on a few teams, and couldn't believe that was allowed to happen. Then teans were uneven in players and skill levels. The daft obviously didn't work, so lets go back to the old way of doing teams. Let them stay where they're at in 3rd/4th grade....you'd have the same amount of teams as now. Right? And prob. less headaches!

You can't nail down what player they're talking about b/c i can think of atleast 3 kids in that same situation...."PLaying with the Avenue Kids" comment about made me puke in my mouth...That's the problem with this league, just because you're form the avenue doesn't mean you have more skill than a kid from the outer city kids...REALLY! Prob just means you run in the right group to get some playin' time!
