When does a win not feel like one?

When you hear all about how a coach chewed out both of your nephews, and made one of them cry. Yeah, some kicks were missed, but nobody's perfect. We still won by 2 touchdowns. It isn't worth psyching out your kicker. And I've never seen someone give as much as L. does on the field.

I know I'm biased, but man...in some ways I pray my boys don't play football because of situations like this. It just stinks. Have some consideration, especially with kids you know are giving it their all.

Doesn't sound like he's a very good children's coach. Hopefully your nephews will learn that some people just aren't happy no matter what and that doing their absolute best is enough!

Ugh I hate people who think bullying is the way to inspire a team. Sorry your nephews had to suffer from that.

Sounds like that coach is in the wrong age group. Our church is looking to have a sports ministry next year and I'm so excited about it! All coaches will be trained on how to coach the kids to see that everyone has a good time. We had two successful sports camps the last two summers for just a week each. A lot of kids from the neighborhood attended and some trusted in Jesus as their Savior through the devotional times.
