1. Has your weekend been busy or relaxing?

2. How often do you dust?

3. Are you excited for March Madness?

I'm sorry that's your experience.

Sadly, a local high school boy is paralyzed b/c of a football injury.  You know those boys start practice way before a season starts but he still got hurt, Safety my behind but let her go, It's all she's got.

<<Why would it have to be in a indoor facility to learn the sport?>>

I didn't say that you did, I was giving an example of something that I mentioned earlier in the thread.  Did you not read my comment which said exactly that?  

<<And AGAIN, I was speaking of LITTLE LEAGUE. Didn't your kids learn sports at home first before going into Little League? >>

Calm down, there isn't any need to yell here.   My kids learned how to play team sports through the YMCA when they were young.  We of course played sports of all kinds in the backyard but they learned to play on a team through the Y, that was their first experiences in many sports.

So again...how do you know it happens all the time, you didn't answer that question.

I did answer it. Go back and re-read Laughing

<<The little league in your area that your kids were involved in or other kids are if they were not when they were younger.>>

I have already answered this a couple of times, I've told you multiple times now that there are leagues that have a sign up period and a late sign up period. 

Yeah the competition ones. There are competition ones for little kids in Little League?

<<Yeah and it seems on the mother's too who are afraid their kids won't get a scholarship to college if someone else takes over their position. You are safe though, right?>>

No, that would be Jams position about mothers and competition, I've been talking about coaches and safety. 

No, you were talking about coaches and then through safety in there when I mentioned scholarships. Why is that?

My comments were about how rough it was for the coach and safety concerns for the kids, how and why you and jams get competition out of concern for the coach and the safey of the kids is anyone's guess.

Oh Jams, I'm sorry that you feel the need to resort to utter lies in your comments to participate here.

Please provide a quote.

And no, allowing late arrivals doesn't mean it works in a league, it means they are accomdating the adults in the situation who can't be bothered to figure out deadlines and most likely complain, and complain LOUDLY about deadlines.   LoL.

How many times do you want me to repost this?

<<Sounds like you are assuming the child has no prior experience? Have you had this problem in your league?>

Untrue, I asked if they had experience before playing, you asked me why it mattered, I explained why it mattered.  You still haven't answered if they had experience or not, instead moving on to asking more questions instead of answering.   Is what a problem?

<<We never said it wasn't about safety so please don't put words in our mouths.>>

I said it was about safety, you and jams have replied with it's about competition, I'm not putting words into your mouth, you said it was about competition, not me.

Exactly, you said nothing about safety and only talked about competition in this situation, how sad.
