Apparently Coach Morey didn't stack the team well enough for Coudersport in the rematch tonight.

Good luck to the Austin girls who play the game the way it's supposed to be played. And nice job by the Austin coaches who understand youth athletics - unlike some of their counterparts in the area....

Calee said...

Thats true... he didnt stack it good enough... I know my Niece who plays for Coach Moreys team was told along with 2 other girls that they had lost the game the night before to Austin for them... and he made my Niece leave the field and go home... He wouldnt let her even stay and play cause she wasnt a good enough player... I'm Sorry but thats just wrong to do to a young girl... who may not be a great player but loves to play the game.. So Good for Austin they have a great team and their Coach's know what team work is all...

Is Coach Morey going to bench the whole team next game??

The guy needs to get a grip!!

Anonymous said...

Maybe they should bench Coach Morey for the rest of the season I would not allow my child to play to play for that coach. Remember this is supposed to be fun for the kids win or lose learn how to play has a team.....

The guy should not be allowed to coach at all! The league president should and better step in.

I have watched Coach Morey belittle and scream & yell at his own 2 girls for years. if hes treating his own children like that, then you know how he is treating your. Not sure what his chip is. sure we all like to win. but some of these girls are just in it cause they like to play and he seems to think that no one should be in it just for fun. I think he needs to be removed as their coach so they can just enjoy win or lose the rest of their Season.

You people need to get a grip! Maybe you should coach the team yourself!

You are so right! He should not be allowed to coach at all. As long as his daughter gets to play that is all that matters. To downgrade the players is wrong.

Why don't some of you parents, hiding behind your "anonymous" comments step up and help! Use the time and energy you are directing at complaints to help out with the softball program. There are currently over 60 girls participating and only a handful of parents volunteering. Coach Morey is very dedicated to making this program a success. Without him, there would be no softball program for your girls!

Sure he can be rough around the edges sometime, but who isn't! He has coached my daughter for over seven years in soccer, basketball and softball. She is an exceptional athlete at eleven years old and works hard everyday so she can improve and be the best she can be. This drive and dedication is because of good coaching.

This is a man who is committed to the youth of our community. He is not someone who should be torn apart by a few parents who are afraid to identify themselves and are hiding behind "anonymous" comments.

I have a lot of respect for Coach Morey and consider my daughter fortunate to be one of his athletes.

Shon James said...

Coach Morey needs to be removed from any academic job in all areas. 3, 11 year olds just quit the team because Morey told them it was there fault they lost the game. He also told them they could not sit in the dugout with the rest of the team for the next game. With the kids in tears, the parents simply removed them from his team. The board says he will not be coaching next year for Coudy, don't let him coach for anyone of your kids. I think that he should be removed now, and let these kids have fun. Win or lose. They are just kids.

To all the parents that feel that coach Morey needs to give up coaching, take a look at yourself. My daughter has played for coach Morey for three years and yes there are days she comes home crying, but she picks her chin up and goes back and uses it to benefit her and better her. I have never heard coach Morey ever call anyone a bad player, I believe some of the girls stretch what is said at times, my daughter is no exception to this, he is very dedicated and I feel my daughter is very lucky to have Tim as a coach and I will sign my name to this as I feel coach Morey should be commended for everything he does for our children, if you have an issue then you need to get your butts out there and help, I don't see anyone there to help but Joey Dubots and my husband.

As a mother of a player in a neighboring town, I am shocked by the comments about Mr. Morey being rough around the edges and children coming home crying but picking their heads up. A child should never be made to feel like they lost a game or are not good enough to be on a team especially when he was the one who initially picked the team. He would NOT be a coach if it wasn't for the kids. It isn't the other way around because if he didn't coach, another parent would step up. And as parents, we can't allow our children to be treated poorly by anyone including a coach. My daughter played for the same coaches for 4 years. She never came home from a practice or game crying because they mistreated her or any of her teammates. She wasn't one of the strongest players but she played in every game and got better every year. Win or lose, they let the girls have fun while teaching them the game. I strongly believe that is why their team was as good as they were. They enjoyed the sport as a team. The main complaint that all of the parents should be aware of is what Mr. Morey did was against Little League policy. He sent 3 girls home that were on his roster when they were there to play. If he has coached for as many years as you say he has, he knows the rules. With that being said, do the same parents who commend him want their children to think it is okay to try to cheat the game when it suits them? This blog has cast a poor shadow and a lot of questions on the Coudersport Sports program even though there are many good coaches over there who know how to play fair. It's sad if the Coudersport softball/baseball president chooses to let him play out the season and not remove him so the 3 girls that he did that to could come back and play a game that is for them and not about him.

shon why don't you step up get off your ass and coach.All of you who think you are so good at coaching step up.Lets see since tim has been involved with the softball program was has he and the other coaches past and present accomplish? Just look at the high school team undefeated this year.why becuase everything that is done at the little league level prepares them for the high school level.Most of those girls started in the little league level.And don't any of you eople act like its not all about winning because to most of you people here it is.You can't stand when you lose. so you need to blame someone. As far as Tim bein hard on his girls. well most coaches are harder on their kids then other peoples.Hats off to you Tim for being dedicated and all the years you have put in to the program.And as far as people not liking you well your in good company there .they all hated me last year.

Anonymous said...

Coach Morey knows the rules of the game. As a coach you certainly do not send girls home from a game or tell them they are the reason for losing a game. He also knows that a pitcher can not pitch two games in a row. It is okay to want to win and it is okay to discipline the girls to a point but do not break the rules in hopes of a win. Coudy girls deserve better than that.

Anonymous said...

Coach Morey thank you for all your time and dedication. I know I see you out there with the high school team at 3 and then for little league practice and babe ruth practice. I don't know anyone as dedicated as you when helping with Youth sports. I know you also coach the 5&6 grade basketball teams. Again another contribution to this community. I know you also took 16 girls for this little league team. MOre than any other team so that they could all play. What some of you bloggers don't understand is that by making a "a" and "B" team your girls are going to get to play more innings as there will only be 9 girls playing per game rather than 16!!! Do the math yourself. Coach Morey again thank you for all the count less volunteer hours you spend with our children. I appreciate you.

Anonymous said...

A few people on here think it's ok for Tim to act the way he does because he's "dedicated"!! Being dedicated and down right an idiot are two different things!

No matter what level of play, MLB right down to T-ball, the most important thing for players is confidence and the feeling the coach has your back no matter what the outcome of a game!

You can have your dedication...

Anonymous said...

I am aware many of you might not know the Little League rules. At this level of play only 15 girls can be on the roster at one time. 10 girls can be on the field at one time. So it isn't that much of an inconvenience to give each girl playing time. But you do have to play every child that is there on your roster. I think that what is getting lost on here isn't his dedication but how he made those girls feel when he decided to make up his own rules. Makes you question how often Coudy lets this happen in their league.

To the poster in caps that I did not post. Your post had merit, however the extraneous allegations, said anonymously,prevented it's posting.

Anonymous said...

Shon you need to get your head on straight...doesn't your earlier comment state "dont let him coach for anyone of your kids"! Funny thing, he was coaching your daughter last night! Is she an exception to your rule? Or maybe there was a misundertanding in communication and you have blown this entire thing way out of proportion. Maybe you should step up and admit when you are wrong.

Anonymous said...

To post 7:33....You are right, he did choose the number of girls he kept on the team, but he was breaking the rules doing so. If he had too many girls try out then cuts should have been made. If he wanted to make up his own rules, then he needed to follow the proper channels to do so, make sure this was okay, then make the girls aware that this was how it was going to be from the start. Don't play a few games, then decide to put this rule into affect and tell these girls right before a game for which they showed up ready to play!

To the 2:03 poster, why don't you admit when YOU are wrong and get YOUR facts straight! Shon's earlier post was made when he was told that his step-daughter did not want to play for a coach who treats his players the way Mr. Morey treats them. She was extremely hurt and humiliated by him. However, she ended up playing again because she was standing up for herself and realized that playing softball is what she loves to do. If she had quit, then Mr. Morey would have gotten what he probably wanted....to not have to worry about having extra players. It was her choice to play again....not anyone else's. Therefore, how is Shon wrong? Just because a parent wants their child to do a certain thing doesn't mean they are wrong for allowing that child to make decisions for themselves. It isn't Shon's life here...it's her's. So, again, why don't YOU admit when YOU are wrong?!

as for stepping up i think i need to clear somethings up. one i do not condone swearing at kids . i also think no kid should be humiliated in front of others. as a past coach i have been told i wasn't hard enough on the kids i coached that may or may not be true.i have also seen umpires in other towns absolutely be one sided.i know first hand what its like to see a little girl cry becuase of an umpire.the sport system here in coudy has its good points and its bad just like everywhere.we all including myself should let the parents and the coaches clear it up themselves. its between them not us. i apologize if i offended anyone i certainly did not intend too. i was trying to make a point and it wasn't a very good attempt.

Unfortunately, it's too bad that the favorite American past time of baseball and softball has fallen into the hands of selfish people. Like it or not, it's no longer about the children. Coudersport is no exception. They have been blessed with some talented athletes, but they need to keep in mind that the pendulum will swing and they have built themselves quit a wall. The pressure of losing is going to cause some to crack, as it obviously has here. This is after all summer league softball, maybe these coaches needs to pursue something collegiate or professional.

Softballparent#99 said...

People Who think Mr. Morey's a bad Coach. You guys have no idea of what your talking about. He has coached My girl for 3 years now, and now she has the best ability possible. Mr. Morey doesn't every day that it was your fault of losing the game, he just says its okay we'll get them next time. Never in a life time would he say that to a player. He only doesn't let the other girls play a points is because theres 17 girls on the team and he doesn't want to cut them. And Parents who are saying he shouldn't be a coach, you get out here and see how hard it is to coach 3 teams. The only 2 to step up is Mr. Dubots and Mr. Easton. I don't see any other parent standing up to help. He only yells because he wants these girls to have the best ability that they can have. So if you want to say thems mean nausty things about him, go ahead but without Mr. Morey there would be no Softball.

Shon said...

Ok to Clear a few comments up here. Dana, if I knew the first thing about the sport I might try to offer my assistance, and however, me not knowing anything about the sport is not the point, children involved in any sport should not be subjected to this type of treatment. And for Anonymous, what am I to do tell her that she can't play the sport that she loves so much? And she is my step daughter. Just wanted to clear up your politically correct earlier statement. I was told that she was quitting, but I was wrong (good for her). While playing she has come home on more than one occasion upset! I don't feel that I have blown anything out of proportion. And it would be great if there was a "RULE" that he was not allowed to coach again! It would be great if there was a different coach now, I posted my earlier comment for the future so if by some great chance that he no longer coaches for Coudy that he will not be able to coach anywhere else. I have had problems with several coaches in the past but never had someone talk to me or my children in that matter. Its not like these kids are going into the world series and are going to bring home a paycheck. This is suppose to be as much fun as it is competitive. Obviously I am not the only one that has these feelings. I don't personally know the man, but if I heard about him in general gossip acting this way to someone elses kids in a different town, then I would feel the same way that I do now.

Softball Parent#99, Mrs. Bertrand and Mrs. Easton - if it was one of your Daughters, it would be a different story!!

Mr. Morey should drop a couple teams if this is what it's doing to him!!

Come on...

nobody should have to listen to how "good" he is, I'm sorry but he chose the wrong path!

Anonymous said...

how can he cut players when they all paid the same amount to play. there should only be cuts when there is a tryout like in high school softball.

Anonymous said...

To post 9:16...you CAN cut players if there are too many girls going out for the team yet not enough girls to make a second team. Do I think he wanted to cut girls..no, but as a coach, sometimes you need to do things like that in order to continue to follow the rules of the game. It's better to do that than to keep them on the team and treat them as if you wish they weren't there! I think it would have been much easier on their self-esteem to be cut than to go through the crap that they've been subjected to over the course of the season. To the post who said "if it was one of your Daughters, it would be a different story!!"....I totally agree. Unless of course, you are the parent who said you basically applauded Mr. Morey for being the reason your daughter came home crying! To me, that just makes you a bad parent. And lastly to Shon....you are right on. Good for her for not allowing Mr. Morey to take her love of playing softball away from her.

i have played for coach morey for most of my softball years. he is a great coach and in the heat of the game not all comments need to be taken seriously. he doesnt use the "a' and "b" team to lower self esteem i know as a player i would much rather play every other game than not play at all. with the a and b team the kids are all still practicing and the get to play. Coach Morey has helped our softball program so much and i respect him and his coaching.

i think i'll stick with tee ball the kids all appear to have fun. the coaches do a great job. the kids don't always do what they are suppose to but they sure do get the crowd laughing. they don't keep score and when the coaches are asked who won they say everybody. they're right too even the crowd wins. yes i know this isn't the post. to rich joe and blair keep doin what your doin . in a few years you too will have a heck of a high school team.shon evry now and then i need to be put in check.

Taras Mi Salad - Nice by the way.

This is a blog. Where thoughts and concerns can be expressed. Mr. Morey is not being railroaded. Everything stated about what happened to the 3 girls against the game with Austin on Friday, May 15th is what happened. It has been documented with the appropriate peoplein Coudersport and the Little League Association. Mr. Morey would have no chance on a lawsuit against Mr. Jones. But based on the explicitives that you chose to use in your comment, I am not surprised that you wouldn't know that. It may have no rhyme or reason to you but tell that to the 3 little girls who were made to feel that they were not good enough to play Austin after they just played against them the night before.

Anonymous said...

Well Taras I think you have other things you should be worried about then Mr Morey. I am very glad how ever that you are better & home. Jim has a great site. and its just that, his site, and he will and can put on what he sees fit. and if you dont like it stay off. I think he does a great job and I donate to him as often as I can cause I am on here more then I read the paper. I think Mr Jones works very hard and spends a lot of time on this so I think we should all donate even if its just 10 -20.00 the site is well worth it. Keep Up the great job Jim!

Post 10:41....Mr. Morey doesn't have and a and b team per se. He decides which girls to sit as he sees fit. He doesn't sit an entire "team" during a game. It's just a few girls. So, you are telling me that those few he sits are the b team? Then, the next game he picks a new b team to sit? All I know is that if you are going to tell players that you have to sit a few of them each game because you "have too many girls on the team" then why not start with your own daughter to prove to them that you really aren't being selective...you just simply can't play everyone (which is against the rules by the way). Not to mention, as a coach, you don't tell those girls or the other players that the reason they were chosen to sit was because they lost the previous game for the team and because they aren't good enough. THOSE comments do need to be taken seriously. And kudos to you for liking him...that's your opinion. And my opinion is that nobody, especially 11 and 12 year olds need to be subjected to that from their coach or any other adult. When you were 11, I'm sure your feelings got hurt many times over little things. Well, this isn't a little thing. They had to sit out a game, they had to hear those words form their own coach, then they had to listen to everyone else ask THEM why they weren't playing which humiliated them even more. Some parents didn't put up a stink about it for whatever reason. But to the ones who did, I'm assuming it's because they realize what a moron Mr. Morey is for doing that to those girls and that he wasn't following the rules of the game. Maybe those girls wouldn't have minded sitting out a game if they had been told at the beginning of the season that it would happen, not immediately before the game. Not to mention, the comments he made didn't need to be made. Those girls felt bad enough already. So, again, my opinion...Mr. Morey is an ass who shouldn't be allowed to coach if he insists on treating players like that. Good for you that he didn't treat you like that because if he had, you'd be playing a different tune right now.

I was once told you can't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see. Sometimes things aren't really what they appear to be. Children and parents can blow things WAY out of proportion. If you had an issue with Coach Morey...you should have taken it to him before bashing him on this blog. He may have been able to explain to you what the scenario was. Enabling your child to play more with the splitting of an "a" team and a "b" team. I mean seriously if they had been cut - they would not have any opportunity to practice or play to improve. As for the 3 girls that got weren't able to play....maybe they hadn't listened to the coaches instruction (these things are usually explained during practices)...I know my daughter doesn't always have her facts straight as to where she is supposed to be and when. That is part of my responsibility as a parent. Coach Morey has had my daughter for a season of both softball and basketball. I was at most practices and every game. She is NOT a "Star Athlete", she is however a very dedicated player. He never treated her any differently, or belittle her. He worked with her and encouraged her as if she were one of the best -- as he did with EVERY player on those teams. Last season she never even hit the ball in a game...NEVER did he get upset or angry with her over it...he continued to work with her. This season .. she is a much better player. I owe that to him and the current coaches for GIVING HER THE CONFIDENCE SHE NEEDED!

Anonymous said...

Ok...regarding the A and B team...many teams in the area have had to cut 2 girls/boys from their team to stick to a certain number. The girls/boys that get cut can try out the following year...consider inner city....the rules are the rules people and Coudersport, Port, Roulette, Shinglehouse and Austin aren't above any of the Little League Rules! Read the book they give the coaches at the first meetings every year. The books state the rules...you must play everyone on your roster and no where in there does it say about an A and B team. He made a mistake and be it for a good reason or bad it is wrong! Plain and simple....so apoligize to the girls and do the right thing and let these girls play ball with the entire team. Maybe it isn't going to be your undefeated year so suck it up and in three years that young team will be kicking butt....every team has gone thru it..

You people need to talk to Tim he'll talk to you, If the girls did wrong Tim will tell you.I can tell you from my girl playing that if she does something wrong and she knows it she knows she is going to here it .She has also became a good player because of Tim. My hats off to Tim and all the coaches. If you think you people can do any better start showing up six days a week for seven or so years for free to coach. Look at all the varsity players that Tim had previous years that went 19-0 this season and are now playing in districts. This is from dedication from Coach Morey to put in his time to help these girls out when they were young to become what they are today. Everything's not going to be given to you in life and you need to work at everything you do to get better. Coach Morey pushes the girls but not to a excessive limit. What person wouldn't get frustrated when they are coaching 3 softball leagues from 3-8:30 every night. Thanks for everything you have done for my girls to make them be the best softball players they can be.

I think we all know that Tim is a great coach and has given his time as a volunteer....most people don't have a problem with that. The problem is...this is Little League and Little League has rules you have to follow and he didn't. You can't have a great coach or bad coach making his/her own rules no matter what town your in. This is what matters here. The rules are set to be fair for the players and all the teams that followed the rules. Many local towns have taken players that were so-so and had to put them into games. Some times when you play these so-so players they can hurt your team or can win your games for you. The point is there are rules and he broke the rules of Little League. It isn't so much about Tim it is about a coach who made their own rules.

"What person wouldn't get frustrated when they are coaching 3softball leagues from 3-8:30 every night?"

If this is the case, then he shouldn't coach. Parents, what he did was against Little League policies. I wouldn't want my daughter playing for a coach who didn't teach her the right rules, if you do then you have the mentatality of a parent who only wants to win. It is not about the coach or the parents it is about the kids. If he can't play by the rules then he shouldn't coach. His way of coaching will eventually hurt his team because as soon as a team who plays only by the rules comes against him, he will cost the girls the game and he will have no one but his own self to blame. So Roulette, Austin and Port, if he sits any of the 15 (AND IT IS 15 girls) on his roster, it is a forfiet. After a few of these, he might play fair as a TEAM. Or the league will let his assistant coach take over. There is NO such thing as an A and B team in Little League. As for the parents that support him, we all get it...your kids have had a lot of playing time. They must be great athletes. From what I have read, Austin is finally in the lead so accept it and let the girls play ball.

Anonymous said...

I'd like to say that I saw first-hand a parent try to talk to Tim about this to get some answers as to why and Tim immediately got defensive and basically yelled at the parent for even asking. They ended up walking away to discuss it so I didn't here any more, but for those of you who say "ask Tim, he'll tell you" I'm glad he will tell you, but he won't tell everyone apparently. Tim should have explained it better to those three girls and maybe a parent wouldn't have had to ask. Not to mention, it was more than one teammate who told those girls what Mr. Morey said about them basically behind their backs. So, again, this has nothing to do with the girls' dedication...they are dedicated and are there to play. It's simply about a rule that was broken and could be amended now if he chose. Yet he chooses to continue to break that rule. You say move on, yet you are also on here still trying to convince us what a wonderful person Tim is and that he'd never do such a thing. It's a FACT...he did it and that's that. And yes, he should apologize to his entire team, yet he hasn't.

He will never apologize to the team, nor to any parents, and I don't see it ever happening either! The guy definetly has a huge chip on his shoulder!

i cant believe you people are still on here complaining about mr morey and this austin game because if i remember correctly austin was up by 15 and they were still stealing home any coach with sportsmanship would have stopped stealing;; you dont rub in 11 and 12 year olds faces when your already going to win... even varsity teams stop stealing so and to the people talking about him playing his daughter she is a good player step back and take it look;; also i give mr morey major props for not gettting on here and reading all the stuff you people are saying;; give the guy a break already

to the comment at 9:17 i have had comments made about me and i do sit out games trust me i no how it feels but its going to happen in youth sports especially when they get older and you dont have to play the hole team;; i played for mr morey they first year we had a "a" b" team and ur right it sucks;; so you can think he's ass all you want but if you take a step back and look at all the progress the softball program has made since mr morey and mr andrews began coaching its amazing;; and one other question why is everyone complaining but not many people will step up and coach.

So happy for you, Dianne. Seriously. I'm glad you have never been treated like those three girls were. I truly hope the attention and "awareness" of his mistakes forces him to never treat a child like that ever again. And to those of you who have never seen that side of him, I pray you never do! But I'm here to say it does exist.

I think Tim's nose was just bent because he lost to Austin, and took it out on those girls instead of regrouping and working on a new strategy. The team is only as good as it's coach. Must be the Austin coach is a stronger and more level headed coach. And yes, i have coached in the past, so I know what it's like to win and lose, but I never took it out on the kids. I just came up with new strategies for the next time we played that team.

So he's still at it... Tim was screaming at our kids (and argued with the parents) when he coached T-ball in Roulette 8 years ago. I suppose that's one technique he's mastered. It's always about him and his coaching; never about the kids and the pleasure of the game. Maybe he should pick up a copy of Coaching for Dummies...

to the comment at 2:02...what is that suppose to mean the sportmanship in coudy is very high and we are not stealing when winning by more then ten coaches should not put a steal on when there up that much and run the score all the way to 32-2 just wait till next year i hope the coach takes the babe ruth team;; its poor sportsmanship... yea we all know you beat coudy and there are no excuses for losing but sportsmanship should be a big parts of the coaches strategies

Don't take away from the Austin girls by assuming that their coaches have to tell them to do what they love to do. Coudy has a great team. If you were at the game before, you would know that. If they hadn't played into the 5th inning the score wouldn't have been so high. However, if you go through each inning without getting 3 outs on your team, the score is going to add up. But if you were there, you would know that. But do not take away from those girls who have spent years together to get where they are. It's not being a bad coach by letting your girls play ball, they have always played their girls fairly. This group has taken their fair share of rough games. Don't turn the fact that your coach is a jerk on to the Austin Coaches. They are great coaches. They just let the girls do what they went to Coudy to do. Play ball!

The Austin coach was making a point to Mr. Morey that 3 girls didn't cost him the game the previous night. With those 3 girls in the game on Thursday, Coudy lost by 6. After Coach Morey benched them for "costing the team the game", his STAR players could only hold Austin to 32 runs - of course, Austin only had 5 or 6 hits. The only person with the ability to stick up for the wronged players that night was the Austin coach, and I APPLAUD him for his actions. For anyone who knows him, that is not the type of individual he is, and it was VERY difficult for him to allow that score to happen - but someone had to take a stand against Mr. Morey and his decision to ignore the rule book and humiliate 3 young ladies!!

there was no point to be made he messed up yess but you dont run the score up when we played austin a few years ago we wouldnt steal when we were up by 10 or 15 i didnt say he was a bad coach i said he didnt have good sportsmanship and i was at the game i saw it and since they played into the 5th inning then austin should have stop stealing you still would have scored without stealing dont pull your excuses and get all offensive its the truth and you people come on here and talk all the crap on mr morey well then you get all offensive when it comes back at you its a very low sportsmanship and everyone nos it

you little league parents dont no what your talking about go watch a varsity game;; maybe coudy austin and we dont do stuff like that but we still play ball;; running up the score and playing ball r completly different;; playing ball involves sportsmanship and im not saying mr morey is amazing at that part but neither are you;; yes austin has had their fair share but they werent 32-2

I think that's the whole point here...this ISN'T Varsity ball. It's Little League and what Mr. Morey did was against the rules of Little League Softball...and he degraded three players in the process....players who didn't deserve that. He was wrong, he has yet to admit it, in fact he just keeps breaking that rule by sitting girls every game.

i know it isnt varsity the point in referencing to varsity in that comment was that the varsity teams dont run up scores like that its not right and everyone knows it so you cant come one her and say that the austin coach is more level headed and has great sportsmanship how would you feel if we come over there next year when all of the girls on the austin little league team move it to baberuth and coudy gets ahead and instead of just playing ball and cutting down our stealing we just kept going and rubbed it in even more. There is no respect for a team in that so both coaches did something wrong
