BJ Foster, destructive back

Recommended Posts

Watch yourself, PLH. Don’t get personal about this. My kids, one of whom is severely autistic, would say I’m a great dad, but one who makes mistakes. Like everyone else. 

You went too far, brother.  
Quit being a pussy.

Trying to catch up, seeing "he quit the team in the 3rd quarter".  Anyone say how he did this? Like did he go to the locker room, just refuse to go in? 

Seems like a whole lot of pot stirring going on with the media right now.

If I am coach Herman, I work with my staff to determine a minimum suspension length for BJ, and then take it to the captains to work with the team to determine if the suspension should be longer and what else he needs to do to earn his way back in. What he did effected his teammates and everyone needs to understand that they are accountable for holding him accountable. If everything goes well, everyone learns a good lesson and we all move on with life.

From Grammerly: "Affect and effect are easy to mix up. Here’s the short version of how to use affect vs. effect. Affect is usually a verb, and it means to impact or change. Effect is usually a noun, an effect is the result of a change. Watch out! There are certain situations and fixed phrases that break the general usage rules for these words.

Now that the basics are out of the way, the time has come to learn the intricacies of how to use affect and effect effectively. Or is it affectively? If you’re lucky, it may well be a little bit of both. (For the curious, effective would mean successful in this context. And when it comes to grammar, success is the goal.)"

This is my initial view as well.  I think Herman could easily make the case with other coaches that "I can't take him back and look my other guys in the eye, but maybe with a change of scenery he'll flourish".  Kids do dumb things all the time, but I see this one as incompatible with wearing the burnt orange.

Yep.  He needs to learn from this somewhere else.

BJ unilaterally quit on his coaches in a moment of anger. For the coaches to react by unilaterally quitting on BJ by throwing him off the team in a moment of anger over what he did probably isn't the right way to respond. BJ is an emotional young man who appears to have a lot of growing up to do. The coaches, a group of grown men tasked with helping BJ grow up, need to be better.

They should talk to BJ, talk to his family (as I understand he has a good one), talk to the leadership council, and talk to his other teammates. If they decide that it'd be best for BJ and best for the team for BJ to leave the program, then they should help him on his way out. But if they decide that there's a path for BJ to earn back the copious amount of trust he lost this weekend, and he's committed to following that path while accepting the consequences for what he did, then I don't see what's to be gained by kicking him off the team.

She is asking for a spanking... a slow, deliberate, interval of discipline.

This is an intelligent and well thought out post. Are you sure you are in the right place?
