How pitifull, the coach yelled at me.......What will you do if you have to stand in front of a upperclassman at a military academy, or when you stand if front of a DI or Company Commander and you get dressed down. Oh boo-hoo I'm gonna tell on you.

Shenendahowa High School is not a military academy. A lacrosse coach is not a Marine drill instructor. The district did the right thing!

Are you witnesses, parents, players? How can any of us comment intelligently without knowing what went on. This article contains no details on the actions in question.

lynett and cidbil are right. We are raising a bunch of sissies who run home to mommy any time they are scolded or they don't like something someone said to them. Mommy trots right over to the school, complaining, "How dare anyone say ANYTHING to my little boy other than to tell him how WONDERFUL he is!" and of course the sissy school officials cave right in and fall all over themselves to appease mommy. God help us if this country is ever attacked because we are raising sissies who will need mommy to fight their battles for them.
