: You are going to potentially call out HIGH SCHOOL KIDS for not being as good as you think they should be? Wow.
: You don't know what these kids are going through that may be a factor for them not living up to your high expectations.
: Maybe they are hurt. Maybe they are struggling academically or socially. Maybe the coach has them play a position that doesn't highlight their skills. Maybe the coach doesn't like them. Maybe they are just burned out because their crazy parents are on them all the time.
: The point is they are KIDS. You want to highlight the good things they do? Go ahead. I think it's great that you do (even if I don't agree with half of your evaluations).
: You want to come on a public forum and trash KIDS? Sorry, no. That's other people's responsibility to be taken care of in a private setting.
: Stop living on your high school team's success from decades ago. No one cares.
Agree completely with the above the poster above. Leave the polishing to the coaches, Pop. I appreciate you shining a light on these kids by providing coverage, but calling out 15-16 year olds on their flaws should not be be included in your game. I've been a fan and grateful for your work, but I beg you to re-think this very bad idea.
