The opposite of baiting

Mentioned this in another thread, but it got buried...

My saturday game where I T'd up Coach A, we came down to the other end of the court and were shooting FTs, I'm standing near Team B's bench and Coach B is saying things like "You don't have to worry about me, ref. You and me are friends", etc, obviously trying to get on my good side.

Do you tell him to be quiet or just ignore him? I hate being treated like I can be 'bought.'

Just ignore him. If you tell him to be quiet, you just lit and put fuel on the fire.

the reason this got buried is because quite frankly its a stupid question -- it falls under common sense. god forbid a coach tries to get on your good side -- Whack him, ignore him, tickle his armpits i dont care.

All I say is:

"Appreciate it, we do the best we can, did you enjoy that gift certificate to the Outback, I'd appreciate your vote when the recommendation forms come out!"

JK!

The most that would get out of me is an "I hear ya, Coach" followed by me moving slightly away from him.

"And I think that you're the second best coach that I've ever seen."

"Sucking up does nothing for me,.... I do accept $10's and $20's though ...."

j/k - I would love to say that to a coach.

Deecee -- I know you're new, but you seem to catch on quick. I thought you knew better!!

OBITUARY: THE SAD PASSING OF COMMON SENSE

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, life isn't always fair, and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouth wash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job they failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer Panadol, sun lotion or a sticky plaster to a student, but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar can sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else is to Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended - his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

Peace

That's about what I did. I was standing near him with my back to him. As I ran back down the court, I just chuckled and shook my head.
