FO---the WM coach has three committed kids at x FO, but instead puts in the all american wrestler for the last five, down a few goals...clearly, the coach hasn't changed with the times...coach-FO important now...60 -40 is better than a 50 50 ground ball, ask Syracuse, better yet, ask umass? where you played...

Coach-

Just a poorly managed game. Is it possible that you take a minute and re-evaluate? You have a chance this season to win, but not if you make the decisions you made today. review the tapes, look at the replays, make sure the best are playing...or, stick to your guns and manage based on your relationships and the kids paying your summer tuition

WM-Good luck. Watch the tape!!!!



Not sure you can blame the FO losses on the head coach. I believe one of the assistant coaches handles that responsibility.

Adjustments will be made, kids will learn and improve....life will go on. Nobody died today on that field. Have a little perspective!

Yes that was it. They were cheering for injuring a player, not the fact that he got up and walked off the field by himself. Idiot.

Another Daddy crying about his upperclass kid not getting playing time.
What a joke. Your superstar isnt getting it done on the practice field.
Coaches want to win....especially vs. WI. Great rivalry. Its a players game. Recruited FO's couldnt beat WI at the X. FO at WM has been a problem since 2013. AA wrestler made it a scrum & it worked, good coaching move. WI is WI....tough team not to be over-looked. Its a long season, keep working hard everyday. FWIW, its easy to figure out which
parents are on here bashing the coaching staff....support the team instead of bringing them down.

Ok, so what happens in practice? if 2nd line is all sophs, your senior
sonmust be 3rd/4 th line correct? they scrimmage everyday how come your senior middie doesn't beat a soph line with his extra 20 lbs.? but you expect your kid would have done better vs tough WI mids? please explain.

SN games offense looked like the old times passing the ball and not taking good shots. They would apply pressure, just not good a flow. I thought they had the ball way to much not to score, maybe new coaching staff is limited them too much or looking for 1 player to do it all.

We like the all american kid and agree he should be on the field...just not a fogo-I am not even close to saying the other fogo kids should have played because they are committed-but very much saying that the all american isn't as good at it as any of the other three.

Now, if you were losing every fo (think about that kid from sme we will face in a couple of weeks) and you put him there to battle, like a long pole-excellent coaching move, but that was not the case yesterday.

To your point about "momentum" -he didn't win possession as much as any of the former players, nor did he score nor was he given the opportunity to play defense. Having him run on the field and run off after losing possession is just foolish and poor coaching.

I completely agree the all american kid is an asset the coaches let sit on the side line when his size and strength are the exact attributes the team needed yesterday at middie. I also think he would have been a very strong fit during sachem n game and agree that the outcome could have been different if the coaches let him play yesterday (four or five or even 10 other boys in exactly the same position). Same old political nonsense in our happy little town.

I am not attacking any of the wm players.

We at WM have been watching these boys for ten years and we all know each of them, their strengths and weaknesses and when they are on and when they are not. If some kids weren't on, weren't strong enough, couldn't hit the cage, why not see if one of the other kids sitting on the bench were on, were strong enough, were hitting the cage. You and I agree that yesterday, the all american should have been playing (a lot).

the WM coaching leaves a lot to be desired and while some might say too early to pick on the coach (fair point), my opinion is that the team has an opportunity to actually compete for LI championship this year, so giving the coach a pass on a poorly managed, poorly coached game against WI is wasteful and harmful. And if we were all being honest, we would admit that sachem and commack were close games that could have gone wrong.

WM is still coaching as if the two all Americans from last year were on the field. They are gone -get over it and coach the very evenly talented 42 kids you have.

there is not a kid on that team that isn't as good as the other 41, so if fogo by committee, why not middie by committee or attack by committee or d by committee??? Unlike all the recent past years, we have a pretty even talent pool. Someone will undoubtedly say they are building team chemistry-to that I say bs-these boys have all been playing together for years, pal, travel, in house...they know each other well.

for the record, my boy was in all his normal shifts and didn't have a great day. If I were coaching, would have replaced him in that game for another kid...one of several. getting pulled for having a bad day is exactly what this team needs.

we all have to pay 200 for this stupid video service-my kid uses it-suggest that the coaches do the same...

the only people that will disagree with the above are the parents of the other 14 or 15 kids that always play no matter how poorly they are playing. the parents of all the other 26 equally talented boys watching and freezing on the side, will entirely agree-

I am with them....

One loss and you are coming a centimeter short of calling out individual kids on this site, while trying to walk the line and say "they are all great/good". Yeah, that makes it better. I would hate to be caught in a foxhole with you. Its an early season loss. WM is a young team with a lot of new starters, and admittedly came in overrated based upon a win against a Chaminade team which as it turns out, may not be as strong as usual. This WM team is scrappy and will be a tough out by the end of the season and also a dangerous team to face. It is not very difficult to narrow down who this is, so why don't you take a breath and vow to wait 2 days after a loss before you post. And I bet your kid would not appreciate you throwing his teammates under the bus. We have two home games this weekend, take the opportunity at one or both of these games, to approach the parents of the kids you are blaming the loss on (even though you are trying to hide it by pretending to blame the coaches) and let them know how you feel - or better yet, just keep your opinions to yourself. And at the end of the season when these kids who supposedly should "replaced
by committee"- which is ridiculous and not done in Lax at this level - are winning games, you better make sure you are not being a hypocrite and glad-handing everyone and telling them how their kid is "some player".
