: : : I would like to chime in--I am not as angry at the refs as I am at the tournament organizers---the new going rate is $12.00 as an entrance fee. TWELVE DOLLARS PEOPLE!! This is insane, then they want to charge from seven to twenty dollars to park. This is each day. Games are now over in under 30 minutes. Its as if games got shorter and they started charging parents more to get in. The refs do a pretty good job overall, no complaints from me, but the fees are becoming out of control in my opinion for these tournaments.

: : Again, you parents have the ability to change it!

: Greedy organizers and coaches who rely solely on AAU ball as a source of income are what is ruining this game. How can you tell kids to work hard if you donít even have an AA degree?

No vetting process to become a AAU coach. The above is very true although having an A.A doesn't necessarily mean you "worked hard" but the point is valid. You got men and women out here coaching "teaching" kids who have no business in doing so. I am not saying they are bad people but they can barely run their own lives or have zero clue on child development, let alone what it truly means to teach. You have adults that dress and talk like kids , sometimes its difficult trying to tell difference between the athlete and the adult. Do your homework on whom ever you put your child in front of , be diligent and never be afraid to have honest conversations if you are concerned.
