: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : When did girls fall league become so expensive???
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : $35 - $40 dollars a game. Donít say ref fees because they only making $25 a game.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : $10-$15 goes to the girls program. Most all city school donít help pay for tournaments, equipment, uniforms. So these fall league help profit to raise funds for these things.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : Right??? And they won't even take the time to post results the following day or 2.

: : : : : : : : : : : : Looks like you are a upset parent . Donít be mad Burroughs didnít post result. You could of always drove your happy self to Burbank and watch the games.

: : : : : : : : : : : Not everyone has the time to spend their entire Saturday at Burroughs. May daughter had the earlier game but would be nice to know how the other games went not to mention those that played at different site.

: : : : : : : : : : : Is it really to much to ask to post results from other games? Even just to note winners and not the scores. If am hosting an event posting results is a no brainer. But that's just me, not everyone is willing to do the extra work. It's all about the $$$ now a days, sad.

: : : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : : I have been a coach for almost 20 years now and there is one thing I absolutely hate and that is parents that think they are entitled to everything. Just shut the F up. I could care less about you and wanting to know everything or that you think your opinion matters. If us coaches don't want to post fall league results than don't get your panties in a bunch. I am sure the Burroughs coach is busy being a TEACHER first than worrying about posting her fall league results. You think because the Burroughs coach didn't post results that she is all about the money now? Really, you arrogant ass!! Get over yourself. People like you make me sick of coaching because you try to make everything about you. Or if its not about you, you try to make it about your spoiled rotten, I can't dribble a basketball but I am on the 6th Cal Storm team and I should be Taurasi kid of yours. So please how about you do this, just shut the F up. Make sure your benchwarmer of a kid gets to the games and practice on time. Don't forget to cheer for the team and also talk trash behind everyone's back because it makes you feel better.

: : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : All these just for a fan requesting for info on how the games went??? WTF, this is exactly what's wrong with youth sports now a days. Back then, even coordinators gladly will go the extra to provide their fans/viewers results.

: : : : : : : : : This is the norm from folks that know how to run events like Palisades tournament, Troy, Redondo Unions just to name a few.

: : : : : : : : : They don't jump on you and call you jerk and demean your daughter. What's wrong with some of you coaches. Why do you get so worked out when someone shows interest to your events and ask a simple question, "who won the game?".

: : : : : : : : : I wasn't going to comment on this but it's starting to go really bad.

: : : : : : : : The bottom line is that some teams don't want the event director to post results. It's that simple, otherwise they will not sign up or go somewhere else next time.

: : : : : : : : Burroughs is a well eun and have been great on providing results from previous years. But alot of coaches don't want for results to go out, go figure.

: : : : : : :
: : : : : : : All this talk of results. It's fall league. It doesn't count. If you just see a score, you aren't getting the full picture. Was everyone for both teams there and playing? Were both coaches trying to win? Or just get everyone some run? Results are meaningless in a vacuum. You cannot put these scores and games into context without watching them live.

: : : : : : Post results from a Fall League?!? Are you serious? What's next, you want them to keep track of standings too? Maybe vote an MVP for each game? Give out participation trophies at the end?

: : : : : This must be someone from Santa Monica fall league who started this LOL!!! I like burroughs league and I think it's a great league.

: : : : I am not sure why people have to get so ugly on this board. I do not think its a big deal to post scores from the fall league. Everyone knows that teams are not at their best. Nobody is going to think it means a team will not be good moving forward. Many teams have girls on visits and what not. Just interesting to see how the games are going. Next weekend I'll swing by and post some scores.

: : : Exactly right??? Who cares and yes everyone knows it's fall league and it doesn't count. Folks are just curious to find out who won and what the score. I just don't understand why some coaches are getting so stressed over it. Don't worry you won't lose your job over fall league. Chill, this is the same case every season. Fans want to know who's doing well during pre season. Is that so wrong???

: : : Coach, please stop the madness and post the results please. We know you have it and you've done it every year.

: I can't believe this thread has generated so many responses from opinionated entitled posters, makes no sense to me. As a former coach posting scores never made sense to me. Most of the teams are not playing at full strength during fall. Cross Country and Volleyball are in season therefore those players are not participating in fall league. Fall is not about winning or losing but rather developing and giving everyone playing time. The scores are irrelevant at this point and time. Players don't care about the scores, majority of coaches certainly don't care about the scores and Little Johnny bagging groceries at Vons doesn't care about the scores. The only ones who do care are the ones trying to live their failed sports careers through their daughters. Contrary to what some may think, again fall league is not about winning and losing, but what do I know, I guess my league championships and CIF rings just appeared out of nowhere.

This is what I love, oh post scores. Sure, let's post scores showing let's say Saugus beating Harvard-Westlake or Sierra Canyon. What is everyone's opinion? Oh those coaches don't coach to win the game. Saugus had everyone. But there is always that one parent or fan that will try to show how great their kid's team is. Oh look we knocked off one of the top teams in a fall league. Then when someone states that Harvard-Westlake or Sierra Canyon were missing players then it's oh don't give us that excuse. It always happens. All these parents want is to have their egos stroked. They want to go to work and talk about how Little Suzy's team did this and did that. I have co-worker that does for his son's football team. All he talks about is how they are the top team in Division 9 and that they just beat a team that went 0-10 last year. BFD!! I understand you are proud of your kid but come on, when your kid is on a Division 3A or worse team and you want to talk about this is your year. Okay sure, it could be your year but you went 0-8 in a league and you are 15-13 overall in a division where there is no clear cut dominate team, sure it could be your year but who did you beat. Then I hear that they beat a team like Harvard-Westlake in the fall. LOL!! Just like everyone else on here it is fall league. You want to know what happens at a fall league then go to one and stay there the whole day. Oh but I have better things to do than to stay at a high school all day. Well it doesn't look like it especially since you are on here every day. Besides fall leagues are horrible now, the parents are always yelling at the score table for having something wrong. Or the kids running the table don't care about what is going on anyways. It is a fall league more or less a glorified scrimmage. The only reason you want to see the scores is so you all can talk crap about the teams you hate. That is plain and simple.
