Afternoon Line- Michael Traikos

Like it or not, the days of the iron-fisted coach have more or less run their course.

No one wants to be yelled at. They certainly don’t want to be punched, kicked or choked. What worked in the past simply does not work anymore.

The Sutters and Babcocks of the coaching world are now as antiquated as sticks with aluminum shafts.

No one wants to be yelled at..

Agreed but it is tough.  I would do more than yell at SA, outside behind the barn.

Sorry Traikos, that is used in most professional and minor leagues as a motivational tool.  I don’t see it going away.

The rest is bordering on criminal. Players hit, kicked.. take them to court.  It will be dismissed in court and Coach fired from his job with no severance
