Right, you are getting annoyed, but for other reasons :lol:


You can read minds...Dad? I’m impressed.

I would not get annoyed too much. A somewhat funny reality is that for kids on youth natl team such lobbying does not make a difference as they always have good div 1 choices. For kids a notch below, this anonymous lobbying is not really anonymous- if you can see it others see it too. Many coaches, as you probably know, do not like such uberinvolved parents and infer something about kids as well. Just saying.

Rb, just remember that WPP would be far less entertaining without guys like john70. Hmmm, let's see...Rb has been around for years that has chimed-in 2,143 times on a wide variety of topics and is always measured in all of his posts. I respect that. john70 pops-up fairly recently and has 11 posts. Entertaining?...yes. Respect/credibility?...zero.

The entertainment factor is critical. Please never let that die :lol:

Oh I’m not annoyed by John70. The infrequent, random posters are just fine. I’m mostly speaking about a couple people who are not particularly objective on here and pretend to not have any ties to a team or particular kid.

Well then, just be prepared to deal with him for at least another four years (5 if he decides to re-shirt) and maybe even beyond that. Sometimes certain usernames are tough nuts to crack.
