Bport is going the way of Rhome.
Yep, that ought to make thaT Springtown coach and all those parents swell up with pride!Sheesh, that was pathetic. Shut your hole and try for one game to not set a bad example for those kids. D-Bags!
Easy for you to say Mr. Mike D-bag Honcho, you nor your kids were effected. No one ever stated anything about being proud about this event, I beloved all they have done is defend the kids here, they were afterall the ones who were effected by this. Thanks for your commentd
10:04,Kids were "effected" by this?I think your work here is done. Goodnight.
The kids didn't need defending... they were playing the game fine. The refs were referreeing the game fine. Who ever was in the bleachers and the coach that was criticizing the referee screwed it up. It's not the NBA.... they are going to call ticky tack fouls or walks... otherwise you wouldn't have a game. Some coaches believe that their role is to yell real loud and whine at the ref for anything that doesn't go their way....The ref might have pushed the double tech.... but why should he even have had to deal with that rif raf....like I heard in the video.... It's just a game.... relax... enjoy the kids playing a competitive game and let the refs handle the refereeing. Why does this happen over and over in every town? Let the kids play and the refs ref......and the parents pull for the kids and the coaches coach the kids....because the kids and refs are doing just fine without the rest.
Glad we got video of this... shows the idiocy of the coach and fans.
I remember reading something about this a few days ago.
Springtown= nuthin' but class...
I'm wondering why B'port is being dragged into this. It was just the location of the game, Springtown wasn't playing a Bridgeport team, so how could the ref's have been biased even if they were from Bridgeport? Looks like they're playing Boyd or Paradise, looks like green lettering on the jerseys.
Bet the kids are really mad at the coach...they should be ashamed of her.
Parker County trailer trash comes to Wise County!
10:58 is exactly right. Let the kids play. Make the parents sit still and SHUT UP.
"Hayee, these are keeyids!" "These're sixth grayeeders!" I'm not ashamed of my region. I am not ashamed of my local dialect. But damn, folks. One of the most important lessons of sports is to realize that the game is not going to go your way all the time. Teaching the kids that occasionally the refs make mistakes, or the ball wasn't round, or the field wasn't precisely fair (despite attempts to make them so) is a valuable lesson that these hick peanut gallery critics are missing. What do they believe that their yelling will actually accomplish? A quick examination will show that they will fail in their goal, using this method.
That was quick. It was one right after the other. I deal with youth sports alot. I have boys that still play in them. The refs do the best they can. They miss stuff sometimes and they make bad calls and it really pisses parents and coaches off. It happens. You dont have to like the calls but you do have to respect them. Those refs dont get paid enough to put up with that. The words coming out of her mouth should have been enough to have her removed from the game. Remember they are sixth graders and you can hear her cussing on the other side of the gym.
Never lived in a trailer, and I pay taxes! You seem to know a lot about trailers, and trash!
Sorry that was not the coach cussing! The first time he made a mistake on a call he criticized the kids which because of his lack of knowledge the kids did what they were taught! The second time was when she spoke up but only an idiot with no knowledge of the game would just allow young boys to be railroaded. No sense explaining that sort of thing to someone that clearly has not dedicated a minute of their time for a youth league. Coaches don't get paid they do it because they love the kids and the game. They are taught the rules and that coach wants their mistakes to be corrected, but seriously folks you can't throw the ball in bounds to yourself and go score not in Basketball not in any league!!
I don't blame the Springtown parents one bit. They have been losers all their life and want a better life for their kids. Fortunately for the kids they are walking away with a valuable learning experience. The parents have now taught them how to lose before the game is even over. Take note Springtown youth, if you want a chance to win, don't act like your parents.
This is going to get good. White trash at it's best. Off topic:All you retards in Wise co that drive 380.....the left lane is for PASSING!!!!!! Move the F' over you idiots.
As a sixth grade girls coach myself, you have to understand that if the refs have to let little "travels", or little ticky tack fouls go, or else the game would last 9 days. Every trip up the court has a violation of some kind, but as a referee, you have to pick your battles. The point of the kids even playing competitive basketball at such a young age is to get a grasp on the game, and to decide whether it is something they enjoy and would like to pursue in the future. The "main gain" of youth sports is not to win by whatever means necessary. Kudos to the referee for doing what he felt was appropriate and sticking by that decision. Hope the Springtown kids keep a positive attitude about the game, and will continue to play. Shame on the parents and coach (if you want to call it that). Period.
I agree with Coach Pizza. At that age, the point of the organized play is to learn the game. When I was a kid, I was not good at sports, but tried to play little leage baseball. Since I was not great, I sat on the bench. Coach never worked with me, never helped me, never even talked to me. I can remember batting in two games in two years. What a waste of my time. As an adult, I can throw a 75 mph fastball with out ever being taught a thing by coaches. If worked with, I could have been the next Nolan Ryan. Coaching is for the kids, not the coach.
The goal is to prepare boys and girls to have the confidence and fundamentals to go onto to school ball and be prepared to make the team! I am a coach and I am also a mother of a 12 year old boy that got cheated along with 8 of my other boys. They cried not because of me or their parents because of a ref that woke up still fat that day and was mad at the world. He took it out on the boys not me Believe me none of you people would dare call me everything but a white woman to my face. Fact is all my teams over the 7 years I've coached have been taught to ignore the fans except the fact that the refs won't and can't see everything and just keep playing. That ref made more than that mistake but that was the most obvious and he ignored it because he didn't know or just was gonna get paid anyway. That was my first and second T in all these years and I doubt many of you can say that. My boys still respect me and know I will go to battle for them anytime anywhere. See in all this I still have the smile on the boys face that made a basket in practice and in the game had the confidence to take a shot. I was not going to win in scores I had victory in that the boys have grown and gained confidence!
Not excusing the coach's behavior, but if the kid did inbound the ball too himself it shouldhave been made right. Plus, the kid obviously needed to learn that rule, and that would have been a good time to teach him. I bet the ref just missed it by not looking, for whatever reason. If he did see it and didn't call it then he was wrong, regardless of what was on his mind. Again, though, there's no excuse for the language by the coach regardless of how wrong the ref was.gern blansten
The coach said you can't pass the ball to yourself then go score! T'd then said well in all these years that's my first T'd twice! Not one cuss word on the court from the coach!
Ref cussed in the other gym!!
The ref did not cuss in the other gym. The ref gave the Springtown coach in the other gym warnings before both technical fouls that were necessary due to the coaches behavior. The ref showed great restraint; can't say the same for either Springtown coach.
The prior week this same Springtown team was playing in Bridgeport and this same coach was yelling at the refs then too! No technical was given, but it sure was warranted! On the league website the coaches and fans were reminded about their reponsibility to their players/children and warned about their behaviour towards the refs. Some people just don't get it, nor will they ever!
10:34am, I don't care how much you have coached, how much dedication you have given, etc. You yell like that at refs because of a bad call and that would be last you coach my kids.I hate seeing bad calls. I hate seeing a rec league coach screeching at a Ref even more. Teach the kids respect. Even in the face of adversity.
Refs cannot see everything that happens on the court. Coaches need to teach their players that refs will make bad call and even miss calls all together. I'm not being harsh to this coach, but I am speaking to all coaches. The example you set on the sidelines stick with these kids as much, if not more, than the confidence that's built in practice. I didn't see what happened throughout the whole game, but I am sure there was more than just one or two comments made before the ref called the T's. Word of advice, if you think you can do better, become a ref. There's always a need!!
gern blanstenJust so you know, not once did the coach cuss or get out of line. You really need to listen to the video again. That's why I posted it, so you & the rest of the crowd on here running their mouth's could see what really happened to our boys. That was not the only bad call by that Ref & we got the same treatment the weekend before. The coach has really taught our son so much about basketball & he has made massive improvements over the past two years. All the other towns we went to called the games fairly. At this one the boys were beaten before the game even started & I found myself trying to explain to my kids why an adult in a position of respect such as the Ref would do this sort of thing. I had no explaination, could only tell them it was very WRONG.Remember: This is not about the parents, the coach, the people of Bridgeport, calling people name (white trash or trailer trash). It's about the boys that worked hard to get to the playoff's & then had their chance pulled out from under them for no good reason and fault of their own.Carol
B-port+athletics=many generated comment.You remember the Lori lammers post???Haha.....hilarious.
By the way our boys were not the only ones expelled that day. There was another Springtown team the Refs chose to expell as well.Tell me that doesn't sound odd????
The ref is tasked with keeping order in the game. A crowd harassing and embarassing a ref for a missed call not seen warrants the coach for being penalized. I'm pretty sure that is why she came over to the crowd and said "shutup".
just so you know...white people can be niggers too. I am.
You are correct that it wasn't the kids fault. The fault lies squarely on the shoulders of the coach. It was both Springtown coach's actions that led to their technical fouls. The kids are the ones that had to suffer because of it and are now probably being told it's the refs fault without any responsibility being placed on their coach. I heard more complaining from this coach to the refs about the calls than instructions to her team during a game earlier this season. From what I've seen, this was not an isolated event on this coach's part. This is the norm. I am shocked that these are the only technical fouls she has received in 7 years.
Similar unacceptable behavior was demonstrated by a springtown parent at the bridgeport vs springtown 6th grade girls basketball game in decatur last weekend. This parent repeatedly screamed inappropriate names at the bridgeport girls as they played the game. When the parent was confronted about the matter after the game he proceeded to want to take the matter outside into the parking lot. In addition, the springtown coach received a technical foul and was asked by the Fort Worth ref crew to sit down. There apppears to be a pattern of springtown coach and parent behavior which is unacceptable.
as a referee for 29 years i have seen it all and i have refereed with both of these guys that did this game and they are both good people. they are not professionals are you would see them on television. they have refereed for many years and do not have a biased bone in their body. i was a coach in pee wee when springtown got kicked out of the league. they were totally out of control and that was the only option. i also refereed the decatur pee wee for many years and my main point of emphasis to coaches is that we will take "ZERO" from parents from any team in the league. this is a learning phase for the kids and we used to try to help as we went along teach a kid what they were doing wrong. did we call everything, heck no, but we always kept it under control. did we miss some,heck yes, but it was never one sided. by the way the only game i ever had to be escorted out of a gym was between springtown and paradise varsity boys in paradise. i will also tell you i am not proud of the way i acted when mine were playing and will tell you there will be a time you will look back and say, I WAS AN IDIOT
Right now I'm just thinking your an Idiot! Passing judgement on lies. The ref had already called 2 shots after a made basket in a foul and then criticized the boys for doing what he said! My job was to coach the parents to cheer the refs to call a fair game! If that lazy slob had done that in one of your game he would have been burned at the stake! When did Paradise and Springtown ever play High School anything? This guy may be a great guy to you but he was biased pissy and down right trigger happy! I did what any coach at any level would do! Yes I'm loud and perhaps if you knew me you would understand who and what I'm about. I still go see boys/girls I coached play per request, and believe me the best most knowledgeable coach I ever had was my pee wee coach and for the record we were certainly winners when played Bridgeport and Decatur!
That NEVER happened!!
Like your profile about applying completely naked to Playgirl, I doubt you have children not with a live woman anyway!! But I would coach your kid we take all kinds and teach them all the same!
once again>> It is about the boys being cheated. The boys could of finished the game. The ref was out of control and took the game from the boys. That wasnt the only bad call he made. Moving forward.. The springtown Coach had an assistant coach that did not say one word during this whole event. The ref kicked the coach out in which NOT one cuss word came from her mouth when she was on the court. So why not let the boys finish what they started they had an assistant coach like I stated earlier that said nothing!! Anyone that knows that coach knows she talks and speaks loud anyway. So how you people can judge because she is loud you have no idea what you are talking about... My son has played for her for 4 years and I am proud to say she does a good job and she does know the game. I know that if she would of got a warning at any time she knows her boundaries and would of respected the warning. As far as reffing a game I have done it several times before and have also played the sport all my life. I do know that you cant make every single call like a travel or call every moving screen but to throw a ball from the side line in to yourself then score is something one of the refs should of caught. I mean come on you have 2 refs there for a reason and most of you defenders are already set up on deffense how can you miss that? Having said I have ref the game I did have coaches and parents screaming at me and I blocked it out cause overall it is my decision what I call. If you are calling a game you know you are going to get screamed at thats part of it if you cant block the screamimg and or yelling out then maybe you should reconsider reffing. So everyone just needs to back off the springtown coach.
One of the boys called the ref out for missing a 3 second in the lane call he very loudly yelled at the player. Then while the other ref attempted to explain a rule that same ref yelled at my team. Not his job I take care of those issues, he was out of line!
Did they get thophies that will be thrown in a dumpster? How about cheerleader tryouts? They gonna be part of that? Come on folks, lets get nasty!!
Maam, "loud" does not equal right. There is a lot more to basketball at that level than the game itself. You can be the greatest fundamental coach alive, but if you can't help them conquer the mental game, you are of no use. Show some sportsmanship, show some class, and most of all, teach the kids how to respect each other and everyone else in the building(referees included). My 5th grade girls team played a Springtown team in Alvord last weekend, and to say the least, the parents that sat behind our bench were a disgrace. The second I hear parents taunting 5th grade kids from the stands, I no longer have any respect for you as a human. The girls on the team were cussing at my girls, IN 5TH GRADE! Something needs to be done. The coaches of the girls were genuine classy guys. I wish I could say the same for the parents.
I believe I am the coach from Springtown that you are speaking of. I did not recieve a technical foul. I was told that only one coach could be standing at a time. When I was told this, my assistant and myself did not say a word and took a seat on the bench. As for the disgruntled parent, I do not have any knowledge of any conflict occuring. Please before you post on this blog, please get your facts straight.Thanks
I would have been pissed off too if I had to listen to you gripe!! It was 20-1 think I might have been trying to figure out a game plan instead of yell g at the refs!! Atleast the kids gained confidence it a butt kicking!!
It probably was a blessing, because they would have lost by 50 pts!!
ITS NOT ABOUT WINNING OR LOSING BY 20 PTS OR 50 PTS!!! IT WAS A PLAY OFF GAME IN WHICH THE BOYS WERE EXCITED ABOUT PLAYING!! COME ON NOW WHEN IS ENOUGH ENOUGH!! WHY DONT EVERYONE STOP POSTING STUFF AND LET IT GO. NO ONE IS GOING TO AGREE EVERYONE THINKS THEIR RIGHT SO WHATS THE POINT IN ALL THIS BASHING EACH OTHER AND BASHING THE TOWNS WE LIVE IN! IT WOULD REALLY BE A BLESSING IF EVERYONE WOULD KEEP THEIR COMMENTS TO THEMSELVES!!
Win or lose, as a bridgeport parent, I respect springtowns players and coach's. I don't respect parents that call the bridgeport girls unacceptable names during games.
Can't we all just get along???Come on, all together now.....Kum Ba Yah my Lord, Kum Ba Yah.
Gabby johnson is right......reverend!I'm especially glad the children were here to witness that authentic frontier gibberish.
I'm glad my kids don't play for that loud mouth coach.... the ref should've given her a third T on the way off the court! Loud mouth.... geeeez!
The fact that this coach is on this blog trying to defend her own unacceptable behavior over and over and OVER says it all. She still doesn't believe she did anything wrong, and neither do the parents. I pity those poor children in Springtown. They don't stand a chance without a single good adult role model who knows how to act with grace, dignity, and CLASS.
Why did the coach have bloody knuckles?
Strange how profanities can be screamed from the football sideline by the coaches, but it sure doesn't fly in a gym. Ever wonder why it is acceptable in one place yet not the other? Wonder too how long a teacher would remain an isd employee if he/she cursed the students in the classroom? If you're going to accept yelling and cursing the kids in one sport, you shouldn't cry about other coaches following suit. Personally, I think any adult who cusses any kid in sports should be removed immediately! We have no morals or values anymore.
Wow I can only imagine where you are from. You sound un-educated and small minded. You shouldn't comment if you were not there. This boiled over when for the third time in a row the refs made a blatant bad call. If bad calls are made on both sides there would be no issue but when they are one sided its a problem. It is also pretty bad when you have 11 year olds telling the refs what the rules are. This situation was handled poorly on both sides. Its funny how no one mentioned how the Paradise parents were cussing and yelling derogatory comments at the 11 year old boys who had no idea what was even going on. Now I know I used some big words and your small mind might not be able to proccess but this Springtown parent was actually there and can comment.
The coach, and my MOTHER. Was just doing what she loves; being involved in the sport she loves. Not once did I, or my friend see her do a thing wrong except exclaim "Can you drop the ball and throw it into your self? No sir you can not!" Then the ref, who rudly criticized the team, gave her a T! For what? Knowing the rules and making the ref aware of what happened? Then as she begins to say "Well thats the first one I've had in all my years of coaching!" he gave her another before even telling the book keeper the cause of the 1st T, which is not allowed. You have to finish telling the table before giving the 2nd T. And what was the 2nd T for? For saying that was the first one she has had? I have yet to see that as being in the rule book under the reasons why T's are called. And after my many years of playing for her, and my friends as well, we are all on the Freshman team in Springtown. Now tell me again why the kids should be ashamed of their coach!
Parker county trailer trash meets wise county meth capital.
Your right it is hard to play 7 against 5 dumb a@@.
This is actually the 6th Grade Paradise Game against S'town! My son is on the Paradise Team and the S'town coach was acting like an IDIOT!!!!!! Totally unprofessional!!!! Some of the S'town parents in the stand were just as bad yelling obscenities and yelling @ refs! It is really sad that you cannot go to a game without DRAMA!! Shame on you S'town, you just showed a group of young kids really BAD SPORTSMANSHIP!!!
That's a good movie.
