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

    • 4"-6" sucker minnows are turning walleyes on a lot of lakes right now.  Seems to be an underutilized method lately.  
    • It would probably be more accurate for you to say you simply choose not to believe it will be a problem.   What happens to your theory if interest rates rise to 5%?  
    • All depends on the district and how many years you have been a teacher.  Although MN is looking for teacher all over.. Our current district decided on keeping befits really high and seeing an increase in pay. Where my mother in-law (down in the cities) they have great benefits but there wages haven't not increased as significantly..    Although my wife is looking to open a daycare up so we knows if she will be teaching after all? 
    • You'll be fine with the door in the V.  I heard at one point that the Lake of the Woods edition was Ice Castle's most popular layout.  I know I see tons of them, but you will have to take some precautions.  I use a Towtector on my truck, which keeps the majority of the slush down.  A piece of tape or a tennis ball over the door knob is also done frequently.  Other than that, you'll have icing and freezing of your door, regardless of where you put it.  Just the nature of the doors we use.       
    • That does happen a lot and it sucks having to play those games.  I took my contract job knowing I was going to keep looking for full time work so it was really just a stop gap to get pay checks coming in and also to gain some experience in a new area and with a different company.  I think i was there less than 2 months total including the 2 week notice I gave after accepting my full time job.  Often times its easier getting a job when you're already working somewhere as you are viewed as more employable.  If you're not working then employers start to wonder why. That where a short term contract job can pay off.
    • I'm lucky enough to have the choice when I start my day, usually head in before traffic gets bad(6:30), but today I woke up and was like..........I'll wait until after rush hour(let that carp melt). We have a guy that starts at 4:30 am, and others that roll in at 10:00 am.   35W-494-Hwy100 on the way in, but I avoid 494 like the plague in the afternoon and cut through Bloomington. Adds a few minutes time that way, but it's always the same amount of time,  I hate hate hate the accordion traffic of 494. Jump on 35W right before the MN river and I have my own lane, no merging needed.   Curious to see how shutting down Hwy 169 is gonna affect things. Might roll in even earlier if need be.   Started working from home on Friday's two weeks ago, it's nice but I don't know if I would ever enjoy working from home full time. Stir crazy and lack of interaction with other folks.   Living on the south side of the metro stinks for taking trips up north. But we live with fewer meth mullets around.   We picked where we wanted to live first and then adjusted how far we were willing to travel for a job.        
    • Ya a saw that, sounds like they have played an easy schedule but you still have to pretty good to have that kind of record.
    • One could also say Koivu has been reborn, that line has been on a tear lately. I think all of them are at or near a point per game for the last 22 games. Not to mention they are doing that while usually getting the job of shutting down the other teams top line. Crazyness!
    • most people are pretty good in the shanty towns that I frequent.  the thing that pisses me off is the guys that come out with there 50 grand fish house and there 5 dollar generator.  instead of leaving it in the back of the truck where it wont bother anyone they drag it 50ft front there house set it next to me and let it buck very annoying.
    • Maybe you can help me understand something.  He mentions his wife is a teacher.  From what I have been told and through reading doc's through the MN Dept of Education, teachers generally get paid the same.  I understand there is a little "bump" for working in the cities, but doesn't the State Teachers Union dictate what teachers make to some extent?  My daughter wants to get into teaching and I was just curious.  I highly doubt a English teacher in Shakopee makes $15,000 more than a teacher in Detroit Lakes when comparing degrees and experience.  Hopefully MJ can offer some insight as well. Thanks!
