I think it should be mandatory that all coaches & DOC get drug tested twice a year.

Top level - top flights.

I have zero interest in giving to much info on my players because they don't deserve to pay the price for my truthfulness in a sport so full of BS.

I'm a person who will say and do anything face to face with anyone as long as I'm the one paying the price for my actions. But knowing how a lot of coaches are -not stand up men- and will attack my children to get back at me for telling the truth makes no sense to expose them to that at this time.
So then I'm assuming you have already contacted your coach and your doc about the drug testing? Since you will say anything face to face. Is your child a u8 or are you just suddenly riled up about this issue?

I'm assuming you are a sharks parent so I'm really looking forward to hearing about the details of your conversation with Shannon about this. I've yet to see or hear of a sharks coach that was possibly a drug user so this will be very interesting.

Hey your the same guy that said you think it is Ok to drink a couple scotches and smoke dope every night after training ha ha so I don't think you truly care, you more like one of the trolls fishing for a argument.
 
I'm not trolling, I'm simply engaging in conversation. I don't try and start $hit with people and I literally do my best to give my opinion based on our personal experiences. I try and ad content that is worth talking about. I'm just honest and do my best to keep things non personal with others.

I think trolling is more like someone attacking people personally and fishing for arguments. I'm not into tough guy act online hiding behind the key board.
I will however tell it the way I have seen it and try to shed light on certain subjects if I have something worth a shit to ad.
I do my best not to attack other posters on this site.
If you have a personal experience with a sharks coach being under the influence I would appreciate a dm. I won't be holding my breath though.

No I don't care! And I'm not getting into my reasoning with you again. You're trying to play some moral high ground that I think is dumb.

As much as I'm refusing to fall for your baiting me for this conversation I'm going to just clear this one thing up and say NO I do not have or ever had any inclination of a SHARKS coach being under the influence of anything other than the high of winning lots and lots of games! Ha ha

But you said this is based on personal experience, so what is your personal experience

And why do you want to drug test sharks coaches if you have never had any inclination that they are ok drugs, which seems to be the general consensus on here regarding their kids coaches

I had a drunk Sharks coach about 7-8 years ago. The original head coach was in a car accident and this coach lived a couple blocks from the field. The game kicked off at 4pm and the coach was at home when he got the call that he needed to fill in. Evidently he had family at his house and had consumed about a six pack. He walked over to the field, showed his coaches card and let the team manager run the game. Without the coach the game would not have been played because there would not have been a carded coach.

Sounds like responsible adults being responsible.
 
Classic troll behavior. Starts out with a holier than thou proposition about randomly drug testing coaches, and how it's wrong to have a few drinks at night, verging on the radical religious.

Tries to continue the argument, claiming that anything, no matter the intrusiveness or cost is warranted, if his personal standards of "drug use" can be applied to "protect the kids." Gets upset when people don't flock to agree with him, ignores rational logical contrary arguments, and facts.

Now, our new moral authority starts calling people "dirty little bitches," saying "shit" and "hell", and accuses strangers posting on a board of being drunk.

Troll.

Ha ha I love this guy!
My stance is the same, I do believe it should be mandatory for anyone dealing with other peoples children to be drug tested. If you work with children then yes get tested.
And yes I do attend church, but I'm far from holier than thou. I do drink and I for sure cuss! I am just a regular guy that thinks their is a loop hole in the system that opens the door for the potential to harm children. I will still stand my ground and say it should be addressed.
I'm not looking for a fight, I'm not looking to put my self in some moral high ground as if I'm better than anyone, this is in NO WAY AT ALL about me. I'm simply using a soccer talk forum to see what others think in the soccer world about a loop hole in the system.
I'm not calling anyone names and I promise I am NOT in any way shape or form pissed or angry.
I find it very interesting that some on here are almost pissed (coaches) about this and others have tried all angles to get me to argue or fight online over this.

And YA I will say this again.. if your drinking a few scotches every night after practices topped off with a joint then you have a major problem in life! But that again wasn't the point of this, that was me responding to a person who was again trying to derail the conversation to something about what he thinks is acceptable in his own life and I responded.

Talking about dirty bitches ha ha please I was simply joining in on someone's joke. I'm not some person who pretends to be something I am not. I will joke around, cuss and drink with the best of ya! And get this I have met some lady's that are actual complete bitches and even some men ha ha do I call lady's bitches NO, but that doesn't mean they are not a BITCH!
But unlike some I do not turn a blind eye to anything when it comes to being proactive with the safety of children.
I truly enjoyed everyone's point of view, I enjoyed some of the crazies trying to bait me into a full out war and I laughed a lot at some of the jokes.
I'm totally cool with all of the input from the negaitive twisting of words to the straight up good views.
Very entertaining thread!
 
Love this....

Paragraph 3: "I'm far from holier than thou"
Paragraph 4: "not looking to put myself on any moral high ground"


Paragraph 7: "if your (sic) drinking a few scotches every night topped off with a joint than you have a major problem in life"
Paragraph 8: "what he thinks is ok in his own life" (what condescension)

Love it!!

And then saying he doesn't call women bitches, then a sentence later calls them bitches.

Comedy gold.

Since you're so nonjudgmental, why do you care so much about my current state of sobriety. It's becoming a weird obsession.

Without Sharky indenting or consistently skipping lines to start a new paragraph, your synopsis is hard to follow. How about you also provide the line number or better yet, copy and then hi-lite it . . . NOT!
