@axlrose: You mad bro? I'm not a Coach. And I was not there. If I was there, I wouldn't be commenting on here about it until I spoke with authorities about what I know.
We have been on the same page thoughout -
"I am not proud of what went on at Bogart Field and if the coach had any involvement, I want him/her away from coaching children because he obviously can not handle the job."
Now, I gotta sew some Nikes.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 19:28
[quote][b]axlrose[/b] - @zookeep: just responding to ballgame25's post of no one knew what happened on this site because they weren't there. A little sarcasm directed at ballgame25. That is all.
I'm not even sure what this means. Where did I say that? I suppose you should direct your sarcasm at ballgame25, whoever that is.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 17:22
@axlrose: I don't think the deputy lied either. Of course the coach should have apologized - he should have had a closer eye on the players and not let it happen. Far, far different from admitting the he instigated the incident.
Apparently you were there. You state "he used poor judgement" resulting in an "incident he instigated". Shouldn't you be talking to police?posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 17:16
@axlrose: So you're siding with the coach? Because, as it stands now, the coach hasn't admitted culpability.
The article gives no account from anyone other than what the victim reported to Police.
Of course, the boy would have no motivation to pin it on the Coach (other than avoiding assualt charges for the punching child, not turning on his teammates and getting them suspended from LL, etc.)
So it's clear, if the Coach did do that, he should face the consequences.
Let's see how it turns out.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 16:30
@axlrose: "The boy told the deputy in the emergency room..." Probably with is parent or parents right there. Let's see what the coaches and players who witnessed it say.
"...coach apologized to the mother for letting it happen." "It" meaning anything happen to your child. He didn't say "Yes I told him to punch a kid and I'm sorry."
When you read something, also think about what it doesn't say.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 15:28
This is all according to the police report filed by the plaintiff (one side of story). My bet is the investigation will reveal boys being boys behind the coaches back.
I hope he's ok either way.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 14:37

[quote][b]GoDawgs283[/b] - Coach Copas said, “I was recruiting him and Tiger Woods about the same time." Daly is 47, and Woods is 37. Assuming John was recruited a high school senior, how old was Tiger when Georgia was recruiting him? 8?
Tiger started college in 94, when Copas was still here. And remember, we knew who Tiger was when he was 2 and he started getting recruited much earlier than most. "About the same time" - within 10 years for a retired Coach, I'll let it slide.posted @ Thursday, May 2, 2013 - 09:15
"Rest of the year". Thats 9 months. At $400,000 salary, that's $1,667 per month (rounded to the nearest dollar, not nearest hundred dollars), or $15,000 for this year which equals 3.75% of his salary.
See how they even massage those numbers to make them look better?posted @ Wednesday, April 3, 2013 - 17:32

[quote][b]bobbidiboo[/b] - The line about police and doughnut shops is just as funny as it was the first time I heard it....zip, zilch, nada, cero. It's told as fact but is totally inaccurate. I don't think I've ever seen a police car at a doughnut shop. And I am out and about a lot.
They knew we were onto them. Now they get drive thru and hang out in a remote parking lot staring at their phones. But hey, they can spend their breaks as they like. I also see many citizens doing this. As for me, guilty from time to time as well.posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 08:25

Had to Neg ya, being as I'm from there. Not much of an argument though. Fun place, definitely some seediness. A lot of good folks live there.
Fun fact - of the three groups (Race Fans, Bikers and Spring Breakers), who spends the most money and causes the least disruption?

I was in the Navy, on a Destroyer, doing NATO drills off the coast of North Carolina. Couldn't get away from it and had to ride it out. We took 30+ degree rolls for almost 2 days including a 42 degree roll one night. You had to walk on the walls to stay upright.posted @ Wednesday, March 13, 2013 - 17:15

As a huge Backstreet Boys fan, I was little perplexed on reading Nick Carter?s book. It?s not like reading a book about Elvis Presley or The Beatles. I didn?t live through those moments. I didn?t see them in person. But as someone who has followed Nick?s career since I became a fan in 1998, not just in the Backstreet Boys, but as a solo artist, I?ve always thought we had a lot in common besides being the same age. read more
The Athens Banner-Herald sports staff combined to win 11 individual awards on Sunday at the Georgia Sports Writers Association's annual meeting in Marietta. You can get a few more details on that in this story ? "Banner-Herald sports staff wins 11 awards" ? and I thought I'd provide some links to the winning stories for the curious. The awards were for the sports staff's work in 2012. read more
