Parents ruin sports..

Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.

sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

This is so ridiculous. This rival has been going on for years and I am a graduate of University CityRead More in the 80's. If it was a rival back then why is it still going on? They don't know why it is still going on. U. City and Normandy need to be removed from the same league and move on!!!!

Remembering the wrestling match between U. City and Normandy in 1965. U.City's Bobby Blitz, now aRead More prominent attorney, was wrestling a tough Normandy opponent. Bobby had had problems with shoulder dislocations...during the match Blitz's shoulder went out several times. Bobby's father, the late Morris Blitz would come down from the stands and replace Bobby's shoulder...tape him up. Bobby's father had been a professional wrestler after WW2...but was the Superinent of Normandy High School at the time. But, that was many years ago...
