Unbelievable, 3 game suspension? Should have been fired a long time ago

I had a coach like him once. not nearly as bad though. no homophobic slurs or racial slurs. he was equally tough on every player. we were kids at the time, and he swore at a rapid rate. was very tough on us. but to this day I thank him. without him my game wouldn't any where near where it is today. i'm not athletic enough to keep up with the dudes that weigh 220, are 6-2, at like 10 percent BF. BUT. the fundamentals that my coach forced onto us enables me to keep up with them. I frustrate them moreso than any other player because of a mix of determination and fundamentals, both of which our coach instilled into us.


everyone needs a badass coach at one point, but this one took it too far. he wasn't being badass for the players' sake, he was being a badass cause he was a racist homophobe

he was the coach for 3 years. I don't see how this is new to them. players left the team because of this.

fair enough. but I was referring to their "hard ass approach" to coaching. so in that sense they were similar

I've had hard ass demanding coaches, but come on. This is on a whole other level. This is physical and mental abuse.

Everyone is hush hush over here. His dad works for the Blazers.

My personal opinion is, the dude has a drinkin' problem. Get him in a 12 step program. You can't huck balls at kids like that.

There are far more coaches like that then people know. I have had one in HS, and Ken Murray at Brock is very close.
