Re: Top 10 Boys' High School Water Polo Programs

While he was at Bellarmine it wasn’t uncommon to see Pablo sprint butterfly (and win) against lesser ranked opponents.

Re: Water polo score updates

SHP was up 2-1 after the first quarter and 3-2 at the half. Aside from a tie score, it doesn't get any closer than that. SHP pulled away in the third quarter. Jeff, I was being sarcastic but you were correct on the scores at the end of the respective quarters. You’d have to agree it was close in sc...

Re: Water polo score updates

Final
Sacred Heart Prep 10 Miramonte 4

Pretty well played game that was never close in score (except at the start of course :D ).
Miramonte couldn’t solve SHP’s drop and split.

Re: USWP Failed US All.

No, the jails would be full of the coaches that teach that type of play Nut grabbing could end tomorrow, if coaches didn't teach it or condone it. Imagine a coach expelling his own kid for being a nut grabber, then the kid goes to another club, grabs nuts and gets expelled again by a different coac...

Re: Ball under penalty foul on field player

Your “spirit of the rules” Interpretation is correct. Most of the times it happens extremely quickly on a block or rebound and yes, technically he/she is an offensive player if deemed to be in possession when applying the rule. But everything they are doing is defensive in nature and exclusively to ...

Re: 2019 NCAA Championships

Have you been to Stockton? I found it dark and dreary, and I would not be comfortable walking in downtown after dark. Well, one would understandably find it dark and dreary when it was overcast or pouring rain almost the entire weekend. Good comeback WPF. I should clarify, I wasn't there this weeke...

There are still plenty of coaches/players and hopefully, referees for Steve to continue his podcast in NorCal. We even have running water and everything up here! :lol: In Marin County? I know swanky Belvedere/Tiburon have running water, I wasn't aware that the rest of Marin County "has running...

Re: 2019 GCC Men's Championship Tournament

Not to sound snarky at all, although it may read as such, but having James and Gavin showing “visible frustration” has nothing to do with anything as they both often look that way for any number of reasons. They’re both passionate coaches that will do anything, within the rules, to gain an edge for ...

Re: Jovan Vavic Arrested

Couldn’t agree more. Total fail. I like to think WPP holds themselves to a higher standard but I guess it no longer does. I guess not being as bad as Twitter is how low the bar has been set.

+1 to @fanofpolo on this. This is a message board. We can ask, speculate, inquire on anything we want. We don't need moral authority commentary on what is or isn't our business. To quote the moderator of the WaterPoloPlanet message board on the primary Jovan thread: "Have you been on Twitter r...

Re: Where is Jovan?

Yes, he was arrested as evidenced by him holding his personal effects in a clear plastic bag when he was released. The video clearly showed him trying to shield his face from the cameras after his release. As for your other questions; those are personal in nature and although I too would love to kno...

Re: Spectator discipline

I wouldn’t have done it, as there are more problems that can arise as a result than would be solved, but it looks like the coach was able to make it work that time. I wouldn’t want to put a player in the position of “educating” his/her parent as some parents could be highly offended and resent the c...
