re: High School Goalie scores on his own team to spite his coaches


Hard to have any sympathy for either side in this debacle.

The player didn't exactly look like he was being shut out of minutes. If he had over 490 minutes and the younger guy had like 540 (and one kid with 200 something) that is a whole lot different than saying he was just riding the pine. Plus, the guy didn't really come across that well in the quotes attributed to him.

On the other hand, a lot of coaches at the youth and even high school level are pretty clueless when it comes to actually managing, motivating and getting the most out of all of their players. This coach/coaching staff seems to have just let the team get away from him.

With a little foresight and some basic communication skills, It's not that difficult to formulate, explain and implement a coherent playing time/substitution plan which, while it might not make everyone ecstatic can maintain the morale and spirit of a team.

Sounds like a fail/fail to me.

Remember the time that Les Miles put in Jarrett Lee to take a knee in the SEC Championship game and he audibled to a pass and he intentionally threw the ball to an UGA linebacker for an easy pick 6.

Well, I guess that didn't happen, but that would have been awesome.

Amirite?



For the love of god, this. A lot of these posters have some hurt feeling from high school so they are happy somebody finally stood up for their kind. Sad

How bout, "Hey Joe, I know you're a senior and all, but this underclassman is better than you. Why don't you have a seat over there."

Depends on what you're trying to accomplish. If your goal is to have a smoothly functioning team that wins as many games as their talent allows, probably could put a little more effort into it. If the goal is to come across as a tough guy or is motivated by fear of talking to players about playing time, it might be the best some can do.

People that are saying the kid should have been playing because the stats are basically even are discounting the kids obviously shitty attitude.

Yea. I have some baseball coaches id have loved to do this to.



Ditto. When I was playing youth baseball and started to get into the upper echelon leagues, I had this coach who loved to play favorites. Never mind the fact I was one of the best hitters on the team this particular year (.432 batting average, led the team in RBIs and stolen bases), and never mind the fact I was without a doubt the best outfielder on the team and one of the best outfielders in our particular division, he would play his step-son's best friends over me all the time just to score "cool points." There were times where I wanted to take a ground ball I had fielded in the outfield and just throw it over the fence.

I was really good at baseball and stopped playing mainly because of him and the coach I would have the next year who did the EXACT same thing.

He was on a team, he had teammates, and he let them down on purpose. Worthless. End of story.

High School sports are very political these days. Sometimes it doesn't matter how good you are but who your parents are. Not saying this is the case here but could be possible. Could be a reason like this that he isn't starting this year since he started last year.

His teammates should have caved in one side of his face.

I mean it's not really the right thing to do, but if you ever had a douche coach you would relate more to his situation. I wanted to tell my basketball coach to eat a dick and do something absurd like this but it would look pretty bad for me so I just quit instead and focused on other sports.


I agree. My senior year in HS we had a first year coach and a very small Senior class and not a great junior class. When it was clear we were not making the playoffs about halfway through the season, he replaced or severely limited playing time of seniors for sophomores. Awesome reward for sticking it out through a contentious coaching change and watching from sidelines as team went winless to last 5 games. After shitting on 2 classes, we made the playoffs (16 teams made it) and that great soph class was now seniors. First round loss. I laughed, but would not have quit on my team to spite coach.

The best part is that this goal tied the game 2-2, and then the opposing team scored on the third stringer to win the game.

I don't care if it's a shot at the coach, it's a big time shot to his teammates. If my son pulled some shite like that it would be on......

The kid is a douchebag. No way around it.

If you're pissed about the situation, find another way to show it to the coaches. But to let what you do affect your teammates too is retarded.

He added: “My hockey season is over. I did it for myself. (Like my status) if you think the coaches should quit:)”

This quote says it all.

He's a selfish douchebag.
