And another one: Garfield parents adamantly support suspended coach | KING5.com Seattle
Too bad these parents don't know what REALLY went on instead of what was said after to try and justify.

Last year, two coaches were forced to resign after playing ineligible players.

This year, the head coach throws a tantrum and refuses to play the game.

Wow. That's a quality football program.

Amen!

The biggest losers are the kids who didn't get to finish the game and have lousy examples set by the coach.

The same coach would throw a fit if there was an inadvertent whistle.

Our whistles are frequently late. Some plays "end" without a whistle, at least until we find the football.

The coach is a whiner who has found a scapegoat. End of story.

This coach is upset about slow whistles. He would be upset if the whistles were too quick. Terrible show of sportsmanship by the coach. Even worse that the parents are backing him for his tantrum. Wonderful example for the kids.

Even worse that the school hasn't dumped him.

Speaks volumes about the administration.

One of my first ejections early in my career was a PA who was upset over a slow whistle.

Run up the gut, no whistle as the pile is moving forward. All of a sudden on the PA comes, "Blow the #&#$&$ whistle, dammit!!! You're gonna get my kid hurt you @$$holes..." Ejected the announcer in my 3rd or 4th game ever.

Any relation to the M Crowder who is the AD for the other team on this game?
That would be pushing the co0-incidence level a bit!

I've got 8000 members in my family tree... so who knows? But no, I don't know that guy and I live in Texas.
