No Cheering at Lacrosse??

12 posts in this topic

Did you hear the one about the MPLS school that is trying a "no chearing and yelling" policy for 2 lacrosse games. Apparently it puts too much stress on the kids.

God help this country in the future!!!!!! Al queda must be laughing at us daily.

Al Queda laughs at us no matter what goes on in this country. What's wrong with trying an experiment now and then?

I would agree.... Al-queda is definitely laughing at some of you. However, they are not laughing at me, so using the word "us" isnt appropriate.

I do not think Al Queda laughs at any thing we do, I think wish they could do the things we do.

If it was a positive cheer, back when I was in High School, we would have done the opposite of what they said we should do.

Now, if our team was on a loosing streak, we would have done anything to help them win, including no cheers.

Nothing new. I graduated in '95. During my high school career the "student" attendees to football games were told they were cheering too much. The parents and "old" folks in attendance couldn't enjoy the game, because of all the cheering. No complaints from the team. I guess standing, stomping your feet, and giving out loud positive cheers to our own team was not to be allowed. We were told that we had to follow a "cheer director" and only cheer when allowed. If you repeatedly broke the "cheering" rule, you could be suspended. I quit going to games.

I didn't understand it then, don't understand it now.

What's wrong with an experiment??? Well how about the experiement of not making people/kids stand for the flag (see Dilworth school district), how about the welfare experiment, imigration experiment, not parking vehicles on drivway experiment (see city of Richfield), no touching/holding hands in school experiment etc.,. Have you not learned that an experiement becomes a law in this society and only trickles down to every other "common sense" right that we enjoy. And for the notion that BID2 is not lumped in with US is baloney. I'm sure at some point in your life there was a issue that came up and you probably just threw your hands up and said "whatever" and went back to your life just like the rest of us do.

Its usually the parents that get carried away. Coaching from the sidelines, yelling at the refs, questioning the coaching staff.

It it were all positive cheers there wouldn't be a problem.

Players are there to play regardless of what goes on in the stands, or should be taught to. When they're taught to keep their mouths shut and play the game, they then start to realize all the smack talk isn't going to make them any better. In fact, if your running your mouth your level of play is most likely lacking.

Instead of addressing the bad behavior and directing that where it needs to be directed, you have a silent game. Thats weak... or is it?

Get the message to parents and students that they are not coaches and they they aren't there to question officials. Smack talk is a sign of weakness.

Encouraging your kid from the stands is one thing and a fine line to being loud mouth parent directing his or her player's every move. Don't we all love sitting next to one of those.

I agree with you all the way Surface Tension. They should be able to cheer but not yell at coaches and players that mess up. It's all part of getting protected from ourselves, just like the smoking ban, seatbelt laws, etc.

Hey, maybe this could evolve into professional sports with fans not allowed to cheer! wink Then everyone would realize how much fun it is to watch a baseball or basketball game... Next thing to go will be cheerleaders! LOL

    • 39 HERE IN THE boat on Hidden Bay, yesterday we had sleet and snow and the furnace was running when I got home, things I do not want to see hear towards the end of March. Was in the big city yesterday at the clinic, Thursdays are chemo days so I was hooked up to an IV for most of the day. However I did spend most of my day chatting up the guy who was sitting next to me. Interesting fellow he was before retiring the CEO of a hospital and spent a lot of his down time on a northern lake that is on my bucket list to fish. What better way to learn a lake then by someone who has fished it for the past forty years. I am hoping to share a chair alongside of him next Thursday. When I was getting blood drawn I sat next to yet another interesting guy. He to was retired but I was to find out that he worked at Cape Canaveral for thirty years where he was a jig and fitting’s guy. His job was to take an idea and make it real for the rockets they launched there. Another guy was sitting behind us ease dropping and he pitched in that he new a guy who lived in a small town up the shore who was also retired and his job was to fly a helicopter and pull the astronauts out of the ocean when they landed. Funny where local guys land up and what jobs they acquire. I gave all three of them Lodge business cards, would be interesting future Lodge members.   So the good and bad part of doing chemo is last week was a great week, Since I was last in the hospital I took on a huge amount of water weight. Last week I lost twenty-one pounds I was a very happy camper when I got off the scale, Hope to repeat it again this week, now the bad part is I am back on steroids and I have to take them for three days running after every treatment, the side effect is insomnia. Last night I only slept two hours and then I was wide awake, So at five this morning I made big batch of chili and took my time dicing everything by hand. Should be done here soon and I already called Elmer and Chuck to come over for late lunch.   Even though it is cloudy out you can tell the sun is up longer and higher in the sky, my seedlings in the South window are finally starting to grow and even the tobacco is becoming bigger then dots. Only a month before stuff should go out to the greenhouse and two months before we start planting in what was looking to be an early spring, now I am not so sure. I did roll a few cigars an I am getting better at it, I am surprise at how much tobacco leaf I am using up on a single cigar. I may have to plant more then I was planing this summer.   It was nice to go to the big city though, I have been locked away in the cabin most of the winter and the fresh air is good for me. The wife is none too happy as I am building a pretty good Honey Do List of my own! for her her at Lake Iwanttobethere
    • Yea....but..... that stuff is complicated.....who knew?
    • I'm sure the resident silly town neocons will respond with a meme blaming libertarians
    • So the GOP controls the house, the senate and the Whitehouse and they can't do anything with it, probably a good thing. 
    • All this winning......   Hillary in jail Wall Street reigned in Swamp drained Obamacare repealed Budget balanced Border wall built.   And it's only Friday.   Take the rest of the week off.
    •   Will that be like Wal-Mart with ENTER and EXIT gates?
    •   Their fun to run around a campground on. One of them that I got was someone in our campground who had it and just could not get it to run right and kept fouling plugs out and it ran bad with a lot of smoke. He had it sitting under a tarp for a year as he had given up on it. I asked him what he mixed his oil at? He said 50-1. I said I'll take it and got it for $200. I brought it over to my camper and drained all the gas out and mixed it 80-1 as I know that the book on them said to run them at 100-1. So, new mixed gas and a new spark plug and a hour later I'm running all over the campground with it! He was shocked to see it running so well. Lol
