Would it be possible to make this board or at least a section of it for coaches only? another site--texasfootballcoaches.com is for coaches only--you have to use your name and school email to get on. its a pretty good deal--you don't have to deal w/ all the #### talking from kids and parents--the fans could have their section and the coaches have theirs. how about smoak?
I'd like the chance to shoot at an educated man for once in my life.

Not Smoak, but just some thoughts.

Is this an indication of how you feel about your players and their parents? If not for the kids and parents, you don't have a team.

If my kid was still playing HS sports, I'd be offended by your characterizations.

Have a nice day.

I think that is a great idea. Everybody needs a place they feel like they can go and share ideas, questions and just general BS along with others in the same profession. Not everything is meant to be public information. We all need a place to vent and share experiences especially when it comes to the workplace.
Stop and think about where you work. Would you want everyone on this forum to have an opinion and weigh-in on every move made by you and your co-workers?
I say by all means Smoak, give em a forum ... thumbsup.gif

btw: I am not a coach. I am a parent of a FB player @ a local ET HS.

If there is one of those sections there, why would you need it here?

I say no way Smoaky. Then are we going to have a "special" section for other professions as well .... doctor's section, lawyer's section, truck driver's section, law enforcement section? Give me a break. The coaching profession is no better or no worse that any other profession and should not be given their own "special" section.

You right Blue. If that website (www.texasfootballcoaches.com) already has a coaches only (limited for only coaches who don't want any who is not a coach to be on it) then they should stay with their www.texasfootballcoaches.com.

Otherwise, any topic & posting here is open to everyone.

yes i'm a coach.--and yes it gets on my nerves when people get on here and talk #### and trash talk--look at all the posts that turn bad and end up bashing on someone and has name calling etc... bleeds u r a perfect example--i said i would like a place where i could talk football w/ other coaches w/o all the h.s. kids getting on and trash talking and u try and make it out as if i am saying something about our kids???? how did it take that turn? and i'm sure Dr's do have a forum somewhere where they can go and talk--THIS IS A SPORTS FORUM--so why can't the coaches who coach these sports have a place where they can discuss issues w/o kids getting on and trash talking?

i would like it so I could talk football w/ other coaches from this area.

I'd like the chance to shoot at an educated man for once in my life.

www.texasfootballcoaches.com

It has message boards for coaches only, right?

Well, I haven't been to that site so I can't verify if it #### or not.
Just curious why it would matter to anybody on this site if there was a section that they couldn't access. There are pleanty of places in the real world a lot of us can't get into based on credentials etc. Geeeeeeeezzzz . no biggie.
As far as lawyers, doctors etc. ... man this is a sports forum bro, and coaches still fall into that catagory the last time I looked.

Maybe they need a sports forum where the ratio is better than 10 hall monitors to every 1 student. ... w00t.gif

I would agree with the others who say that there shouldn't be a dedicated site for coaches. The perfect site for that is the coaches site that was referenced.

I can, though, offer an idea for you Outlaw. Go to groups.yahoo.com and setup a coaches only group forum. You (or someone of your choosing) can be the Moderator and control who is allowed to join. Put the word out to all of your coaching friends and before long you will have the private area that you desire. Any new member who wants to join has to come through the Moderator.

I can't totally disagree with your comment regarding the trash-talking. If I were a coach, I would probably have a tough time with my players being on this site during the season. I just don't think the answer is to segregate this forum.

I can show the coach how to start his own forum just for coaches. Probably would be a hit!
