    I was coaching my 12-year-old's basketball game today. For us, it was a big game. By the second quarter, we really had things rolling. We play an aggressive 1-3-1 zone that can put pressure on the ball all over the court, and we had forced several turnovers that lead to fast-break points. We had another effective trap and the other team dribbled out of bounds. Our kid, who had made a nice play, clapped in the guys face. That happened in front of the scorer's table right next to me. So I saw it, but there was not a technical called. I fought my instincts to call timeout and yank the kid out of the game because I did not think it would have been fair to the team. I completely thought about what Mike Smith did to Asante Samuel and how that turned the game around (possibly the season to a certain extent and maybe even the entire franchise when you consider what has happened since.) I believe very strongly in respecting your opponent, the officials, and the game. And I took the kid aside after the game and made it clear that such behavior cannot happen again. At practice Thursday there will be additional discussion and consequences for the entire team. But I was not going to turn around the emotion and momentum of the game at that moment. Mike Smith taught me that lesson, for better or worse.

    wfw is not a conservative. He's more socially liberal than you are. He's just also infinitely more awesome and likable. Chef is few and far between in posts these days. I did forget t-falcon.

    I guess I'm just old school. I played 12 and under basketball and football in the Atlanta Rec League at Anderson Park for a coach named Charles Rambo (RIP), a notorious as beater who would have slapped this kid up side the head in front of everybody. The kid probably wouldn't have made the same mistake twice. By the way when I played football for Rambo he was in the sixth year of what ending up being something like a thirteen year undefeated streak, Undefeated! As for the Aint game. Give me a fkn break. The game had just started. If that move killed the momentum and caused the loss then the whole team should have been fired on the plane ride home. That didn't kill the game. Try the Aints defense holding us to 50 rush yards or them running over our defense for 150 yards. The other five penalties didn't help either. We just got our as beat by Payton and Brees, which is customary. If I'm not mistaken this happened in a season that ended in a ton of mistakes and cost us a trip to a Super Bowl. From botched snaps, to stupid penalties, to slip picks, to bad reads, to tripping over a freakin hash mark. We played sloppy ball this past season too. If anything Quinn needs to buy a pen and pad and start berating these guys in film reviews like Smitty did. At one point Smitty had the least penalized teams in the league. We were far from that last year and it cost us. Especially the unforced stupid as Levitre type penalties.

    its one thing to discipline and shame him in front of a crowd... another to do it with just the team involved.

    You have to teach kids discipline, respect, sportsmanship. Mike Smith wasn't wrong for getting on to Asante for what he did four years ago. The point that was he shouldn't have done it the way that he did it. Or are you just trolling?

    I read the first half of the sentence and immediately thought, those two would be perfectly fine in gen pop at a male prison, then saw you made the same point.

    I posted the article to show people, enlighten people to what's actually going on in Europe. It isn't being reported because of political correctness or some such nonsense. Our own president thinks bringing hordes of refugee's to america is totally OK. It is not.
