and snowblower guy. Gotta be second cousins, right?
You do the math.
Fuck the tulips, but be careful if you're near a wind mill.
...and the state throws out the original ban, what parent in his/her right mind would agree to their kid being coached by a sociopath?
their parents has started a new club here. And it is signing up kids like gangbusters.
Never underestimate the stupidity of the general public....
However, he has been asked to provide details on his intentions on actually coaching teams in the local league. So this isn't going unnoticed.
no longer playing together!
but they grind exceedingly fine." Stay the course and here's hoping for the best.
and the lifetime ban would serve the coach well. It's been quite the trip the last year and half with soccer, hasn't it?
Application for criminal charges?
Local township ate it.
Courthouse that serves his community and fill out a private application for a criminal complaint. A hearing generally within 90 or so days. If a clerk finds probably cause an arraignment before a judge scheduled and District Attorney takes over prosecution.
I didn't want to put him through any more.
Now had the guy physically harmed my kid, we're talking a very different story.
I agree it would be optimal for your son to be able to part ways with the entire bullshit. While a good lesson, it sucks to be only 14 when forced to learn it. All the best!
The fact that he still thinks he should be allowed to coach in the next 2 years is a really bad sign.
The soccer world is nothing but a good 'ol boys network. They pay lots and lots of lip service to doing the right thing, protecting refs, stopping abusive coaches, and putting kids first, but the truth is, the big clubs have lots of power and the big time coaches have lots of friends.
I hope that this guys gamble blows up in his face, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear that the fix is in.
The club terminated him right after his suspension, which came about a week after the incident.
is he a non-parent coach for the club? If he doesn't have any younger kids, then maybe in his mind 2 years is effectively lifetime.
If he didn't realize the different punishment available and walks into a lifetime ban, that's pretty funny.
Outstanding bit of karmic justice.
I believe he coaches his kids, so yes he may have approached it that way.
And I've seen the increased ban/suspension happen with appeals since FAs and associations can impose longer bans on offenses than were originally given (think a 2 game ban for a straight red card that was REALLY bad, and the player appeals and the FA turns around and gives him 4 games instead).
