    Have it out with the other coach, but no need in taking it out on his kids.

    I wouldn't. I'd probably have put starters back in a lot sooner if it wasn't just a Jamboree today though.

    Mt main guys showed up to play though. I was pleasantly surprised.

    I did see another team run the weirdest offensive set consistently I've ever seen today. They ran a unbalanced line to one aide and then basically an offset power I to the weak side where FB and TB were behind the weak side guard. It was one of the oddest things I've ever seen on a football field.

    Honestly that’s a pretty nasty formation with the offset fullback but I don’t get having the tailback behind the guard.

    Sounds like an urban Meyer formation he would run against us for 50 plays without us stopping it

    I've seen what you are referencing. Makes total sense and can cause all kinds of confusion. The TB is what threw me off.

    Watched video of the game today. First play of the game, our left tackle pancakes a kid, helps him up, then starts blocking him again. I got a great laugh out of that one.

    Beat the shoes off a knoxville team yesterday. Was 37 to 0 at the half. Ended up 43 to 20.

    When your #3 running back breaks off a 50 yarder for a score, it's a good day.

    Saw where coaches and parents at a 9 yr old football game got into it and brother of NFL player Talib shot another coach. Baseball parents and coaches used to be the worst but in many of these youth football leagues, it’s a mess. Not yours Card, but all this talking shit and 7 v 7 YouTube stuff with players mobbing another player over a catch or stop has made it worse.

    It's awful. There's a reason I won't take my team to play in their fundraisers and it has nothing to do with on the field.

    My 8 year old is playing up in fall ball so he can see kid pitch before spring ball.

    He told his coach he's a centerfielder because he's fast and can catch "probably the best out of everybody". The ages are 9 to 12.

    The coach laughed and told everyone "here's your starting centerfielder". He's caught everything so far in practice

    There's only a handful of 11 and 12 year olds in the entire league, the majority are 9 and 10

    He's hitting kid pitch better than coach pitch

    I love your kid's attitude. Better get used to a life of inside fastballs, but I love it.

    He doesn't lack confidence and he's going to flirt with your sister and mom before and after games

    He was really good in flag football but all of his buddies are playing baseball

    Son's team plays it's first league game tonight. Play a team that's a restart of a program that folded 2 years ago. The team they beat 35-0 in jamboree last weekend has already beaten this team 47-0. This could get very, very ugly.
