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

    • And if the leftists get lucky at the convention?     You aren't against human rights, like income, health care, equality, LBGTQ rights, and stuff like that, right?  
    • You scale them, no?
    •   So, why bother with locks?  Honest people won't take your stuff even if the door is unlocked.   I am in the camp that I want to make it at least a little difficult for the crooks.   Especially since three people in our family have had their houses burgled and stuff taken.
    • The result right now is not good. One way or the other the toilet needs flushing
    • Mostly I talk about this with respect to the nonsense about multiple parties or no parties some on here seem so fond of.      It is all a fantasy.   Some new party could possibly take over an existing party, like Trumpism did, or even replace it like happened back in the day but in the end there will be two parties.     Perhaps a parlimentary system with multiple parties would be better than what we have, but, in my opinion, you can't get there from here.  It's like the calls for a Constitutional Convention.   Do you guys seriously think that could happen, and that the result would be good?  
    • I haven't gone up the old Grade, but do head to Outing via Emily and NE from there, and it is really nice. Hardly any roads to go across and little to no ditch riding. I have got to try the Old Grade, as I would think it is like that. We grouse and duck hunt up there now and then, but haven't lately. Great place with lots of public land and opportunity.
    •   But yet I countered with an actual study but you think your own speculative based opinion is better. OK then.     How very hypocritical.      I would end the discussion after that last statement too.
    •     I can guess it is not for humanitarian reasons.   Mexico has about had their fill of fighting the drug war for us, and are moving towards decriminalization.  If California legalizes weed, this would be enough to tip the scales in favor of decriminalization for Mexico.       For years now, Mexico has paid an extraordinarily high price in lives and social disruption for Washington’s insistence that North America’s drug problem be tackled south of the border, where the drugs are grown and transported, rather than primarily in clinics and halfway houses at home to treat the medical and psychological issues of users. Mexican President Pena Nieto.   Successive administrations, starting with President Nixon, have demanded ever-tougher border controls, aerial-spraying programs, and DEA-backed anti-“cartel” operations in Mexico. All those efforts and sacrifices have been for naught. U.S. residents currently export up to $29 billion in cash to Mexican traffickers each year to buy marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and heroin.   Forcing that trade underground has taken a terrible toll on Mexico in terms of violence, corruption and social upheaval. Since 2006, when President Felipe Calderón ordered his military to join the “war” on drug traffickers, Mexico has lost about 200,000 lives and 30,000 more have disappeared,dwarfing the civilian death toll in Afghanistan and Iraq over that period.   The majority of those killed and disappeared were victims of criminal organizations, but human rights organizations also report soaring rates of human rights violations, including torture and killing, committed by security forces.   The 2016 Global Peace Index, prepared by the Institute for Economics and Peace, estimates the total cost of violence in Mexico at $273 billion, or 14 percent of GDP, with no end in sight. Direct fiscal costs of fighting the war on crime were about $32 billion in 2015 alone. Yet the United States has contributed only about $2.5 billion since fiscal 2008 to Mexico’s drug war, under the so-called “Merida Initiative.” Mexico’s pain shows no signs of easing. The New York Times reported in December that Mexico suffered more than 17,000 homicides in the first 10 months of last year, the highest total since 2012. “The relapse in security has unnerved Mexico and led many to wonder whether the country is on the brink of a bloody, all-out war between criminal groups,” it said.    
    •   But In Del's defense, he only does this on things he would like to stay as is. When you are talking about legislation he is in favor of then it is the law of the land and can't be changed. When it is something that he dislikes, it can and should be changed.
