Is this from the research institute "No Sh*t, Sherlock"?

Why do people have a hard time understanding this?

I never played D-1 athletics, but I did my time in the Army. I've worked for hotheaded screamers, and I've worked for calm, level-headed professionals. One of the two groups are the people for whom I would have walked through Hell in a gasoline suit. The others are the ones who got me to do the bare minimum required to keep them from biatching at me.

Guess which is which.

Given the number of people white-knighting the Rutgers asshole when he resigned, this thread ought to be interesting.

This. Somehow all of Bob Knight's post-1987 record at IU has been expunged. Otherwise, people would remember that come tournament time, Bob Knight's the original "one-and-done" coach.

I bet if you asked a bunch of people "who would you rather date - the asshole/biatch or the quiet nice person?", they would all pick the 2nd.  But if you put them in the bar, they'll go for the first.

I believe there are good "yelling coaches" and good "nice coaches".  There are also a lot of crappy coaches who go with the yelling because they can't get any effort otherwise.  They should just quit.

Personally, the nice ones who knew when to let me hear it once in awhile were the best for me.  It was good to be reminded they wanted my best, not to be my friend.

I'm related to someone who recently played Division I basketball.  Through AAU and whatnot he knows at least a player or two on like half the teams in the country, they all talk.  Here's what he told me: every single Division I basketball coach is a screaming slave-driver, no exceptions.  Even the ones who look calm and mild-mannered on the bench.  (That said, he still tells me that Mike Rice was beyond the pale.  Rice had attempted to recruit the aforesaid relative and he stayed away because of things he had heard.)

You'd think that just ONE good coach could make a great recruiting pitch with "I'm not like the rest of them," but that coach presently does not exist.

My scariest Tae Know Do instructor was the quietest one.  He didn't need to yell, just indicate disapproval (or, worse, disappointment) and I knew I had farked up.

/plus -- punk as I was -- I had no response.  What could I do, disapprove back?

You think?  If you're dealing with a team of elite practitioners of anything...  (basketball, tradesmen, accountants... whatever) you yelling at them for fark-ups isn't going to make them feel their mistake anymore than they do.  People who are good at stuff know when they fark up and will attempt to minimize it in the future.  On the other hand if you yell at someone and they didn't fark up, they just didn't pull off some superhuman trick, then you lose their respect for your ability to lead them.

As a soccer referee at club, high school and D2 college level...

Almost without exception, the coaches who sit back and let the players PLAY THEIR GAME on the field have the better teams. They only do in game coaching when their players come off the field as substitutes or if they must call over someone nearby to relay a message regarding game strategy to the captain.

Coaches who yell and scream and biatch and moan haven't done their job BEFORE the game.
