The Insane Rantings of a Sane Man who’s Tired of Being Political.
I know it’s been a long time since I have had a thought of the day, but this has been burning in my soul. What happened to I’ll get mine and you get yours and we will see who comes out in the end? Whatever happened to no matter what, I will teach my child to work hard and trust the coach and the process to be successful.
I am not sorry if I step on some toes here, I actually hope I do, because right at this very moment I DON’T CARE. You know what they say”If you throw a rock in a pack of dogs, the that holla is the one you hit.” You see there is a lot wrong with this youth sports deal. When I, as some of you, were coming up, You played for your high school and if you weren’t good enough to get on the floor, you got in the lab, worked your ass off and reaped the reward for that work. Now a days you have these kids and parents who, if they don’t like the playing time or whatever, they TRANSFER to another school, and another, school and ANOTHER SCHOOL till they run out of options. Instead of teaching their child to fight through the adversity and teach them the value of hard work. Life isn’t easy and it damn sure ain’t fair. Some parents say well “my child won’t get a scholarship from where he/she is” remember this, Many kids have received a scholarship from small high schools and have gone on to major D1 programs and then on to the NBA, NFL, MLB, etc.
Now to the other 50% of the issue. These snake ass, smile in your face ass, don’t care about the kids ass coaches that come into your backyard and and recruit your players. These coaches have no kind of ethics about themselves. and if you are taking offense to this then…. GOOD! I can understand if a kid moves into your school, or if they enter as freshmen and continue to graduate from there. But when you actively recruit kids from other programs, crippling the program’s ability to be competitive and removing the parody that youth sports is supposed to have. How bout you train your kids, and coach your kids so you can elevate their games so they can move on to the next level. Now, I must say, I have NOT been the victim of this epidemic called transferring, but I have seen how it has effected other programs, coaches, and High School Sports in general. The question we must ask ourselves is, What are the kids learning from this? Peace
