Re: TheCoach’sWife

This must be an e9’time that league is a joke

Re: TheCoach’sWife

Could’ve been a pretty good post if it wasn’t a book.

She is spot on but I bet this guy gases 12 beers a night just a cope...

Re: TheCoach’sWife

First of all, did anyone actually read the entire letter that this poor woman wrote? Yeah, me either... good luck coach, she's a keeper!

Hahaha, that's funny!

Communication is a two way responsibility. The communicator has to deliver the information in a consumable form. This was an awful read. At LEAST put a line between paragraphs.

.....says the white division dad. Your son has dreams of the black division. Sweet!

Leave the E9 cracks to us Fed Elite dads. You can pick on BHL.

Re: TheCoach’sWife

I'm not a coach. Although the letter is long, it is spot on. Coaches are under appreciated by a lot of parents, even in Fed elite. It's takes a lot of effort to coach, especially given the lengthy duration of the season. It's worst when you have a few parents of players on the team who never have anything good to say and are always complaining.

Re: TheCoach’sWife

Fake News!

Re: TheCoach’sWife

So your husband is Jesus friggin Christ himself in skates and a whistle. Okayyyyyy.

Put it a sock in it lady.

Your husband probably stinks as a coach and was asked a thousand times to NOT BRING THAT KID BACK. The kid probably struggled all of last season, because he's simply not good enough. What's worse, the kid probably doesn't work at practice nor try in a game.

But nooooooo, because your husband is a friggin know-it-all and refuses to account for anything other than his own ego, he decided, screw it. I'm super coach, so I'll bring him back, even though the kid is too small, struggles to skate, is scared of contact, and refuses to play D.

Because you know, your husband was a first liner at 'Beer Leaguer U' a lifetime ago, he knows better than everyone else.

Last thing, that "dad" wasn't cursing the kid who is struggling. He was cursing your husband... who's awful. Anyone else with half a brain knows he coaches for the free tuition, and so your bender can play whatever position he wants, start every period, AND get triple shifted.

Oh last thing.... those tourney weekends. Coach ain't heading to the hotel lobby bar for a late night beer with the dads.

Save your sanctimony for Sunday mass. Oh wait, you probably haven't seen a church in years due to all that hockey.

Example of why the post was written. I am sure your kid is doing great on his third team in 5 years.

Although I don't agree with the way the message is being delivered, the commentary isn't that far off.

First, if you do your research on coaches before you sign with the a team you do have far fewer issues. Even with that, the coach is probably selecting the team and there always seem to be a few kids on the team that probably don't belong there at this stage in their development, maybe friends of the family or kids with "untapped potential". On the surface there is nothing really wrong with either scenario. However, if that kid is still struggling at the end of a season, the coach should move on if there is a more suitable alternative to that player. It's not good for the development of the struggling player and it's not fair to the development of entire team but too often that kid is back, season after season.

If you want to see good players develop really bad habits, partner that "A" player with the "C or D" player for an entire season or more. A good coach not only develops players but also knows it's his job to develop the team and sometimes that means hard, uncomfortable conversations. If you don't like it, coach a town team.

As for "hockey wife" I can empathize with how uncomfortable the rink has become for you. I suggest you move to another part of the rink and surround yourself with the other parents who are more enlightened (probably the moms of the kids who don't belong) instead of ranting on the board. This is not a community of sympathetic souls.

Re: TheCoach’sWife

Thanks for that post! It was great and spot on.

Re: TheCoach’sWife

All these haters are exactly who you are talking about. Some of these clowns forget, or don't care, that the coaches wife and children can hear them. Yes, there are some coaches out there that have good intentions but should hang it up as it just isn't working. There are also coaches out there that pour what they have into this game and they deserve some respect, even more so during a losing streak.

Good luck coaches wife. It is a long and stressful road but worth the ride.

second this. and. it appears the posters forget they 'scolded' her in the stands about something her coach/husband did or did not do. or she has to listen to 9p calls from parents yelling at her husband on his phone for 'whatever'. OR that silent ride home from the rink because --- wait for it --- the coach is just as upset as you about that loss.

BTW nice to see so many 'English' majors/punctuation police on this board.

So, wait, so a parent should behave or not behave a certain way because the coach's wife may be in the stands and might hear?

Seems to me that the paremt that doesn't conduct themselves appropriately isn't going to give a rat's ass about the coach's wife.

This wing nut's diatribe is the best testimony ever for a non-Daddy coach.

Re: TheCoach’sWife

"Oh my, read this long story about how saintly my husband is." Listen Lady, maybe your husband is a nice guy and maybe he's not. I don't know him or you for that matter. Posting this book about him on here just makes him sound weak and you a bit off. Let your husband take care of his own issues and if word gets back to anyone about this post blame it on the Ambien.

This is America in 2018. Nobody takes the time to actually read anything, we need to consume news and information in 3-second bites. Women are dismissed out of hand because men have lingering mommy issues. And someone offering a different opinion is reflexively labeled fake news. Cue the cookie-cutter libtard responses. Yes I am male and yes my son will knock the $hit out of your son if he dares to go into the corner against him.

Bwahahaha!!! Your whole little rant made my day and provided me some Friday afternoon comic relief. Thanks!

PS:

1) You shouldn't be sending your son into dangerous situations & no one mentioned him except for you.

2) You have no idea of my political leanings or my views on women so don't make assumptions

Re: TheCoach’sWife

Is this the "New hockey novel for teens & tweens" I've been hearing so much about?

Re: TheCoach’sWife

This is so true and happens at every level, with the criticism and commentary usually coming in direct proportion to lack of skating ability and lack of athletic or academic and emotional success in general in the parents. My experience has been the more critical the parents, the poorer the relationship between the parent and child, and the worse the ride home probably is from the rink for everyone in the family. So don’t sweat it too much, I’m sure there are a couple of normal parents on the team.

Re: TheCoach’sWife

When did the DBoard become the Dr.Phil listserv? I thought by the title of the post this was actually gonna be something much different but clearly its like when you rented 'Dirty work' on VHS years ago and got home to find it was a crappy Norm McDonald movie.

Jesus christ bring back the guy who thinks Deck hockey should be on LiveBarn rather than this after school special
