ExGilbertFooballFan-Going to go after retired professor's and grandparents now? Mr. Rodgers and friends, you do like to bully wome, children, and grandparents. You say you want to face your accusers then why didn't you go to Board meeting and speak about your truth. You have kids defend you who can't cut grades and most who sat the bench themselves.
Who is a liar? Credible investigations are completed by outside unbiased entities. Men who have nothing to hide don't have to tell kids to lie, follow their own rules of accountability, and are big enough to fight their own battles. You lost your coaching position and if you do lose your teaching job it is because of what you are doing now. Your integrity or Remy? Remy 100%. You are a coward for bringing his children into this. He probably waited to quit because he realized camp was not an isolated incident but actually how this guy rolls. Can you say "nut case"! You are the only one that keeps accusing moms, kids, and other coaches. Get an attorney or call the PD if you didn't do anything. Better yet, the parents who keep getting named should get an attorney and hold Mr. Rodgers accountable for his lies and the divide he has created among the kids.. 6 months ago
Coach Rodgers went to the press and presented one side. He blamed one mom, one kid, and then set the kids up to defend him. He has pit kids against kids, coaches against parents, parents against coaches, but never takes any responsibility for his own actions. He is a snake in the grass and manipulates other other adults and kids to do his dirty work. We will teach our own kids character, discipline, values, and what is important in life. Football is an extra curricular activity but it does not define everything we are as a person. Father's should teach their son's to be real men and they should worship their Lord and not the coach. Coaches are just people. Some good and some not so good. Parents teach their children to be accountable not the coach. It is a sport and only a sport. Don't knock the band. Band takes a lot of talent, discipline, and intelligence. We are not cave men and intelligent people who make a difference in the world play instruments, play chess, play football, are on the debate team, involved in student government, and just feel good about themself!6 months ago
Hello! Areyoukiddingme? If you are going to make public accusations and listing names, then you should be brave enough to post your own name. Looks like the Coach is the one who went to press and is ruining his own reputation. You obviously are an employee who was part of the investigation, a friend of the coach, coward, or just ignorant. Responsible adults down start listing names of kids families unless they met with them or know them. Are you a friend of Mr. Cahalan or his maker to question whether he is a Christian? You are the one who should be ashamed of yourself! Are you an expert on abuse? Are you a parent? Were you with the kids all year? Do you know these parents personally to make judgements about what their mission is or is not? Are you a friend of coach? Hitler had friends. If you are going to post names then be big enough to post your own!6 months ago
District cuts are unfortunate and many of us would be the first one to say teachers/coaches should be paid better, respected, and valued. However, that isn't a reason to keep the wrong person doing an important job. There are many successful coaches "yes Hamilton" that don't resort to hazing kids. If you weren't one of the unfortunate to be coached by this type of person, then good for you! Doesn't mean that others had the same experience. The end does not justify the means! If he doesn't want to deal with parents then perhaps he should be coaching at a college level. The truth always comes out. There are many great coaches and teachers who are very disciplined, strict, and respected. 6 months ago
Stupid people make stupid comments when they don't know the facts... Ask PENN State and the people who believed in Paterno and Sandusky! Abusive people always try to blame mommy's and kids! Get a brain! Maybe it has nothing to do with being tough, competive, or apron strings (not springs), but about a culture that needs to get its priorities straight.6 months ago
