So I have a new story for you to analyze… it will probably be a deleted topic in the next sixty minutes as I don’t understand how that works anyway.
Two years ago my son was playing varsity basketball as a junior (there were 2 other juniors and a sophomore on the varsity) and he worked his rear off, was playing a good game and was anticipating his senior year (last year). The team had some relative success but he did not enjoy the season. His coach had issues with playing favorites, making rash in explicable decisions regarding playing time, when certain players were on the court, etc. and he alienated many of the players on the team. It got so bad that my son refused to play as a senior. There were other underclassmen coming up who were very talented players on the freshman and JV teams who likewise refused to play on the varsity team last season.
I had been told by several others that this would happen but I chose not to believe it and encouraged my son to play. He would not do it so I eventually accepted it and hoped they would find a new coach for the sake of the program and the other boys who my son had played with over the years.
Fast forward to this season… and the varsity team has one win so far. The season has about 8 games left… they might finish with two wins. The program is in ruins…
Am I being negative? Is my perspective wrong or off base? Sometimes we just need to face reality Scott and admit there is a problem… you need an intervention or something.
