No one would want the likes of you to coach their kids. You obviously don't know beans about Pop Warner. It is an introduction of football to CHILDREN!!! They are not yet being scouted by the NFL. But those very children may someday be.

Half these kids won't play football past popwarner. They are out there to have fun not to be drafted. Who cares if their skills aren't up to your standards? Worry about your own children.

There are too many kids playing who donít really want to be there. They donít have the desire to excel nor the discipline needed to play. They have been cuddled by their parents and donít put in the effort needed to be good players. Parents equate football to AYSO soccer, where all players get equal playing time regardless of the effort they show or the talent they have. Everyone gets a trophy just for showing up for the game. Football requires that kids learn their positions, learn the plays and have the ability to perform. Coaches expect the players to do what is required and give their best effort on the field. Coaches give a lot of their time and have to contend with crybaby kids and whining parents who have no concept of what it takes to play the game. Pop Warner (and society in general) has changed greatly in the last 20 or 30 years.

PS: I donít know where you were watching four year olds play football in this area but last time I checked the kids needed to be at least five years old by August 1st to play.

Pop warner is the most unfair organization you can be involved in. Go to soccer. At least in that sport, like basketball and baseball and hockey, all of the children can touch and handle the ball (puck). In football only the elite few kids (as few as four to six kids per team who play offense) actually will ever score or touch the ball. Just think, all of those practices, money and time spent and your kid only gets 10 plays per game (and a rule had to impose by pop warner to get that)and will never touch the ball unless they recover a chance fumble. Just so the coaches kids can be the hero's. Not only that but when it comes time to hand out the monetary scholarship awards who's kids do you think get those. Your kid that plays on the line?? Not all working parents have the extra time to donate to the many practices that must be held plus the games.

3 words: Traumatic Brain Injury. Football players, children, youth football players, die every year from traumatic brain injuries from playing football. And Pop Warner is well aware of it. You put your kids through that mr and mrs. super football parents. Not to mention the high number of concussions that occur every year. Freaking stupid. And I don't want to hear about the rules against helmet to helmet contact. It could be helmet or head to anything contact and a traumatic injury to the brain could occur and is likely to occur in a sport like football. It's an irresponsible sport to have your children involved in . Shame on you. You're probably the kind of people that let their children ride a bicycle without a helmet even though there are laws about that.

Four words, You Are An Idiot. Most of the very few deaths that occur nation wide are as a result of pre-existing medical conditions like aortic dissection. Hundreds of thousands of kids play football every year and manasge to remain unkilled, non-concussed and otherwise uninjured. I have never heard of any Pop Warner players anywhere dying from traumatic brain injury at any point in the past seven years that I have been involved. The likelihood of a concussion is almost equally probable for soccer players. Significant injury can happen in any sport, even in non-contact sports like basketball.(See Kevin Ware/Louisville) Regarding your last sentence, it is clear that you are a liberal who needs government to provide "rules" to keep themselves and their family safe. Go ahead and teach your kids to be pussified and they can work as subordinates for my kids in the future whom are taught to lead.

I couldn't agree more! You hit the nail on the head. Just don't try to leave a Pop Warner league. They will try to hold you hostage and take all of your money and equipment. Just ask Hockomock in Massachusetts. It unreal the lengths they will go to keep taking your money
