How? Because its good ol van wert Ohio that's why! One reason is because kids don't want to play football here and the other reason is because u have parents with their nose in everything and telling the kids "its all about having fun. It's not about winning"! Things will never change around this sorry ass town!

Totally disagree. "Good ole Van Wert"...whatever that means. Maybe it means their are a lot of unhappy adults around here who can't wait to take it out on kids for losing a GAME. The same adults who probably love OSU football, and look at them. Let's look at what a 'win at all cost' attitude has done for good ole OSU. The most hated team in the nation!!

As far as the reason kids don't want to play is the opposite reason your stating. Let's don't forget the Van Wert has only ever had a few good teams, and it wasn't the coaching, it was the caliber of athletes.

Let's also not forget the Coach Noftz situation in VW basketball about 20 years ago. There was a lot of hate going around this town, because he wasn't rehired. He coached some very good athletes who made him look good. The same coach who married a cheerleader, and pushed players into lockers. What a wonderful mentor he was.

It's time to grow up and give these kids a chance. One game doesn't define a season, but bad attitudes from adults do define their character.

So let's talk about teachers and coaches marrying students! One of them still teaches there! So why is that? Because Chris longstreth started over a mengerink so then the mengerinks dad got a petition up to get rid of knofts. Once again, "good ole van wert"! The coach we have now has had great talent too but he can't win with what he has but he kisses all the peoples rear ends that think they re "someone" in this town so he gets to stay! Now once again winning isnt everything its the only thing. As far as only having a few good teams, go look at the wall at the stadium from the 50's and 60's, they had good coaches and that's when kids weren't made to be SOFT!

Ok, VW hasn't had many good football teams in the last 40 years, how is that? Excuse me. Lets also not forget VW plays in a league with bigger schools than we are. This has always made it rough for us to win.

As far as Noftz, nice how you left out the pushing players into lockers and the verbal abuse he gave to the players, and condoning a teacher marrying a student. But winning is everything isn't it. Let's also not forget how the class of '93 basketball team could have been the best basketball team VW has ever seen and most the kids quit or went to other schools to get away from the good ole VW athletics. Noftz was also one of the worst teachers VW has ever seen, but I guess he was here to win a stupid game. Because that is everything, right?

The class of 93? 92 is when they were good. Nice how u left out the teacher that is still teaching here that married a student of his too! Like I said ur one of the people that make kids soft! They need to have respect and be disciplined to good at sports and if yelling or grabbing ahold of them is what it takes, so be it! Van wert has never won state in any sport! Take a look around this town at the other schools! Guess what, THEY WIN!!!!

Yes they were good in 92, and 93 could have been better, but Noftz pushed they away for being a jerk. I NEVER said it was ok that VW has a teacher who married a student. I don't feel it's right for any teacher to marry a 18 yr old GIRL.

You know nothing about me, or if I making my kids soft. I do know from what you write that you feel that verbal or physical abuse is a good way to get KIDS to win. Who cares that VW has never one a state championship. I would rather have kids have fun playing sports, and getting good grades. If I wanted my kids to be abused, I guess I can send them to you, or send them to the Marines.

I guarantee ur a democrat just by listening to this sh!t! Nofts wasn't even here in 93 so that shows how much u know! And there were the key words, just have fun playing! That's the problem with why we don't win! Who the Hell wants to put all the hard work and time into a sport to go get ur asses kicked but say at the end, boy that was a lot of funny getting beat down again in that game tonight. Get real!

Your right Noftz wasn't here in 93 because thankfully the school board made the ruling not to rehire this abusive coach, but it was too late for that class. One good player had already quit, and 2 others played at other local schools, who ended up beating the team that VW was left with.

I'm not a democrat, but I guarantee you are a close minded, right wing republican. I bet you think George W was a great president too!! Please take the time to reread what you have written in this forum , you should be ashamed. This forum is ripping on KIDS playing a game. Blame the coach, blame the kids, and blame the parents. Good ole Van Wert is right!

I wish the best for the VW football team. Please remember to have fun, and play hard.

Do you all feel better now because you have disparaged young men? For what? Of course one tries their best to win, but a football game has nothing to do with life or death; it is not the most important thing in the world. I doubt that those making all of these negative comments did, could or would play any better than what they are complaining about. In the end, the game is for the players, not for all of the quarterbacks sitting on their cans in this stands.

You ought to be supporting these young men with your presence and encouragement, but all you can do is to bitch.

Go mind your own business. Football teaches character, mental toughness and self discipline which is necessary for life in this world, not how to be crybabies like many on this site.

Shut the Hell up! I'm not down grading any kid I'm talking about coaches and parents! Coaches that aren't any good and play the name game in this worthless town and parents that tell their kids how the only thing that matters is having fun! That has nothing to do or is nothing against any kid!

Because you decide to bring down children and their parents for trying to play sports. thats all it is - sports. when you say that no one wants to play then you are doing that. no one wants to hear from your negative heart on this or any other site . this is not what your father had intended for you . when you pass , if you are confronted by your maker will you still feel your comments are worthy of saying. why keep hurting people.

You are pretty vile. You can't stand it when someone points the truth out to you. Do you read what you write? Maybe you should or you should have somebody read it out loud to you so you can actually hear what you are saying. It is insane!

The players are young men not professionals. High school sports may be the only time in their lives that they play organized sports. You want to know why there may be some who won't play? Who would want to play knowing some Saturday morning quarterback was going to condemn and second guess you in public for the way you play.

I suggest that you and people like you need to shut up. It is not your game, but theirs. I wonder how perfect you are in the game of life? Do you ever lose? Quit being a spoiled little brat like some on this site. Start showing your support and encouragement to these young men instead of being a complete jackass.

Your children must be very proud of you.
