I am the daughter of a retired HS football coach (& history teacher) and you are absoultey correct on this! My dad was fired from a school for “being too hard” on his players (and we are talking about the 70’s here-when kids did have backbone)! He of course went on to coach and teach at another HS with an extremely successful team for 20+ years. My dad was not a “nice” coach, but he led these kids to WIN. The problem with kids these days, they are taught there are no winners or losers, it’s pathetic.

However, I do not condone any adult calling a kid names like fa**ot or retard (of course, I am sure these kids would never ever call any of their peers by those names) but nothing wrong with a little razzing to get these kids kick some ass! Look at their record, these coaches are doing something right!

When I played I only wished for a cursing out, we had face masks twist,shin kicks and the dreaded command assume the position and the paddle came out. We are turning out a generation of cry babies– boo hoo he yelled at me and I’m going to tell my mommy. IMHO one of the reasons for the rash of teenagers cutting their lives short is that they are emotional infants and when the going gets tough they just bail out.

As the parent of a Hoboken High School football player, I have kept my mouth shut for far too long in regards to the unprofessional and despicable behavior displayed toward my son (along with other players) by these so called “coaches” (Peluso and Shannon to be particular). Between the stories my son tells me, and what I have witnessed from actually sitting in the bleachers during his practices, it is clear to me that the situation at this field should be looked at more closely by the Hoboken Board of Education. Referring to kids in words such as “retarded” and “fagett” along with MANY other words I cant write on this message board (but they start with the letters “f” and “c” among others) is not something a teacher of children should be doing.

wait, wait, wait… a football coach disciplined a football player and in so doing, used foul language?? Stop the presses!!!

I apologize for the sarcasm, but maybe I would have an easier time understanding if this was 7th or 8th grade, or even a high school activity other than football. I guess it would be inappropriate if a teen were to get cussed out for forgetting a line in the school play or something, but a high school football field is not a place that should require manners.[quote comment=”198917″]As the parent of a Hoboken High School football player, I have kept my mouth shut for far too long in regards to the unprofessional and despicable behavior displayed toward my son (along with other players) by these so called “coaches” (Peluso and Shannon to be particular).

Sorry to take this so lightly, but your so-called child of 13 or 14 and growing up in this city, has probably used these words on the street more than their couch has. If ya ask me, it keeps the spunk in them, and they always seem to be proud and holding their heads up when their championships roll around.[quote comment=”198917″]As the parent of a Hoboken High School football player, I have kept my mouth shut for far too long in regards to the unprofessional and despicable behavior displayed toward my son (along with other players) by these so called “coaches” (Peluso and Shannon to be particular).

It’s dangerous to make excuses for the people who instruct our kids, and affect their outlook, especially with the morals of our society rapidly degenerating. I haven’t witnessed these coaches in action, but if they are foul-mouthed and abusive, can we really consider them assets to our childrens’ education?

If we were talking about grammar schools, I would definitely have a different opinion. These guys are 3 and 4 years away from leaving school and dealing in the outside world. In my high school years, our entire gym classes were marched to the selective service to register for the draft. Age 18 you were at war defending yourself and buddies. Kids today are too damned sheltered with their bactine ointment moms. Let them give up 2 or 4 of the teenage years (if only to defend OUR boarders, OUR airports, and OUR shipping ports) and they all might have a different attitude and not rely on their parents in later years. To toughen up an individual (especially a boy) will never make him less of a man. I’m talking “words” here from a couch, not physical abuse.[quote comment=”198982″]It’s dangerous to make excuses for the people who instruct our kids, and affect their outlook, especially with the morals of our society rapidly degenerating.

We’re talking about two different things. I’m talking about the eroding culture we live in, and you are talking about exposing teenagers to the real world so they do some growing up. I agree with you that kids are way too sheltered these days (parents are over-attentive). But I do think our society has moved away from appropriate boundaries when it comes to how people treat one another. To me that’s not about kids “growing up,” as much as things just generally regressing. I’m probably just being a little old fashioned, though.[quote comment=”198988″]If we were talking about grammar schools, I would definitely have a different opinion.

You want to talk about an eroding culture, then maybe you should check out what your child is posting on the internet while he’s in YOUR care. Courtesy and caring start at home, not on the football field. Many more lives are being lossed and tossed while children destroy the lives of other childern with their vicious words and actions right under your nose. Read the papers lady. If this football business is so upsetting, take him out, and enroll him in the same drama classes you evidently took.[quote comment=”199003″]We’re talking about two different things.

What’s ironic here is that the biggest expense of the country right now is old people. They are living off young people.

Somewhere between 40 and 60% of the taxes being paid by young people are going straight to the elderly, who put in effectively nothing.

I’m not saying elderly people don’t deserve some help, but to say that young people are living off old people is simply incorrect.[quote comment=”198988″]If we were talking about grammar schools, I would definitely have a different opinion.

There’s nothing ironic about it. I’ve worked all my life and never collected a dime in unemployment or other benefits. It was ME at one time who supported the elderly, (probably YOUR parents) when they retired, and now it’s YOU who’ll be supporting me, and the beat goes on. Like the saying goes for young partygoers like you, “don’t cry over spilt milk, it could have been booze”.[quote comment=”198995″]What’s ironic here is that the biggest expense of the country right now is old people.

Reason number 6,543,814 that I will not send my children to this prison, school – ghetto coaching![quote comment=”198917″]As the parent of a Hoboken High School football player, I have kept my mouth shut for far too long in regards to the unprofessional and despicable behavior displayed toward my son (along with other players) by these so called “coaches” (Peluso and Shannon to be particular).

I agree with you, it is ghetto. In order for these kids to act like civilized human beings, the coaches have to BEHAVE like civilized human beings. My kid is going to private school when it’s time for high school. I’d rather spend $15,000 dollars a year than have my kid exposed to that bulls#%t.

Private school coaches yell more and probably use more insulting words when motivating their players to not suck. They tend to get fired when they lose so they don’t coddle their players and treat them like girl scouts out on a picnic. It is football for crying out loud. If the kids can’t take it then tell them to take up basket weaving and leave the football to kids w/ some backbone.[quote comment=”198964″]I agree with you, it is ghetto.

I have not witnessed this with private schools in this area. Also, verbal abuse does not create a “big man”. Football does not justify inappropriate behavior on the part of coaches.
