Dear Coach of the team we scrimmaged,
You may remember us from yesterday when we scrimmaged your team. We too are a Bellevue Junior Sports Association team. You called our coach a retard and a failure, then yelled at your own kids and screamed at your parents in the stands. Your language was unacceptable and out of control. You should also remember us because one of the children who played on your team, whom as you recall you called a pu$$y and cursed at his mother, now plays for our team because his mother wouldn’t put up with your verbal abuse. Everyone understands that this is a volunteer position and you don’t get paid but that doesn’t mean you can verbally abuse anyone you feel like abusing. We also don’t care what your day job is or how much power it imbues you with, frankly you’re not that important to me.
What we are concerned about is your coaching skills, or really your lack thereof. I don’t know whether you just don’t understand the concept of football and how the plays work or you are just a scumbag. I would guess you are the latter. But, these children are eight to ten years old, they are not professionals, they are not college students, they are impressionable young children. You should not be teaching them to play dirty or to attempt to hurt other people. If you want to pretend not to know what I am talking about I would be glad to remind you.
Your children engaged in the following dirty and or penalizing plays in only fifteen minutes of a scrimmage: face masking, leg whips, chop blocks, illegal low blocks, piling on after the whistle, clipping below the waist, spearing, and illegal use of the helmet. These were all only defensive penalties as well. These are not things that eight year olds do naturally. No child naturally ducks under the front of an opposing players helmet and purposefully brings the crown of their helmet up into the unprotected chin unless you have taught it to them to give concussions or whiplash on a tackle. It is just too deliberate of a move to appear natural when your children did it.
You need to clean up your act, and the football you are teaching to these kids. You are responsible for teaching good, fundamental skills to the children they can use when they play football for the rest of their childhood and beyond. If you don’t we, as responsible parents, will do something about it. We do not care that you are buddy buddy with the director of the sports association according to rumor. If you continue with your shenanigans we will simply go to the board of directors or better yet deliver video from a football game to one of the local news stations. If that doesn’t work, expect your work to get a copy of a video as well as an affidavit from the parents. If you tick your off enough of your own parents I am sure they would be willing to provide statements as well. It is time to clean up your act. If you don’t think you can or are unwilling to, then you just need to let someone else coach and watch from the sidelines, or better yet, don’t come at all.
