Tellingthem: Seriously, after after the bruises, cuts, smashed fingers, etc from football practice these kids would have been down for the count.
Fark France: This isn't really that bad. We did the same thing when I was in high school 3 years ago. I played football and threw shot. Hanging under the bleachers during three-a-days in the summer was what we did during breaks. If we threw rocks onto the track, we had to crawl around on all fours until every single pebble was picked off of it. It was a rubberized track surrounded by gravel. There were rocks everywhere. Sometimes we had to push the field house like a sled. It had stucco walls. My hands were torn up. Quit if you don't like it. Discipline is important in a sport. Stuff like this instills it. Throwing shot was a cakewalk because we could do anything we wanted. The track team lost almost every meet due to a lack of respect for the coaches.
Mimic_Octopus: no one is ever, NEVER, sick for one day
Mimic_Octopus: QT_3.14159: I think the workout is a great idea and a good punishment (though I'm not sure it should apply to someone with a Dr's appt). Next time they should just supply work gloves for those who do them.first of all, no kids really need doctors appointments. it is just some bullshiat excuse to skip something. if you are sick, you go to a doctor and miss a week. no one is ever, NEVER, sick for one day, and you dont go to doctors unless you are sick, really sick, not just flu or cold. That said, if this biatch really had a reason to go to a doctor, WHAT THE fark IS SHE EVEN DOING AT PRACTICE ? damn, western civilization is turning, has turned, intoa bunch of whining pussies.
Dear Jerk: That happened to me in gym. Coach had us play crab soccer on the basketball court. We gathered at the end and I said 'what do I do about this?" and showed him a square inch of skin hanging off my palm. He told me to tear it off, so I did. That's how I got in good with the old-school coach even though I wasn't on the football team. For all the good that did me.
JungleBoogie: They did this for half a mile. On a cinder or concrete track. Probably not those college tracks with the rubberized surface. Regardless. Totally unacceptable to f••k up someone young teenagers hands like that.
RogueLeader: You're mistaken, the blisters and dirt affected both hands.
Fano: 180IQ: So... What the hell is a "bear crawl"?That's what I wondered, then I decided their sadistic Asian coach actually meant to send them to Dunkin Donuts.
marius2: Damn kids need to toughen up their hands.

liam76: The worst part about the story is that these dumb coaches are teaching these kids that "crab walks" are bear crawls.
JungleBoogie: Hands are pretty important. For stuff like writing and typing. Building stuff. They haven't been used for walking for millenia.They did this for half a mile. On a cinder or concrete track. Probably not those college tracks with the rubberized surface. Regardless. Totally unacceptable to f••k up someone young teenagers hands like that.I can understand punishment, so make them miss a meet or run extra laps. You know, with shoes on.Half a mile of that. Young teenagers. That's extremely poor judgement on the part of the coaches.
scubamage: Track kids were once proud that their sport was other kids' punishment, and in this case it looks like the kids still are.

THESE KIDS WILL SURVIVE!ROWERS LAUGH AT YOUR WEAKNESS.
HotWingConspiracy: scubamage: Track kids were once proud that their sport was other kids' punishment, and in this case it looks like the kids still are.I've never seen a bear crawl event at a track meet.
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: When those scabs come in, I bet they could give a handjob that would scrape the warts off my shaft.
Vaneshi: I would be interested to see video evidence of how the people making "snowflake" comments reacted to being punished for failing to be in two places at once. The article clearly says at least one of them was at a meeting making arrangements for the schools prom.Because they'll be whining like the little biatches they are.
mainstreet62: In this thread: Plenty of idiots that don't have kids, and therefore don't fully understand the consequences of these actions.The coaches should be fired, and anyone telling the kids to man up should have their heads examined for brain damage.
scubamage: HotWingConspiracy: scubamage: Track kids were once proud that their sport was other kids' punishment, and in this case it looks like the kids still are.I've never seen a bear crawl event at a track meet.Making runners run 2 laps as punishment. Yeah, that'll make a difference.
Semantic Warrior: SmellsLikePoo:And if you don't show up, don't whine like a biatch to your mom & dad that you got taken out of the relay, or you are just benched. A physical punishment for missing practice, how is this something new?The biggest load of crap about sports these days is that if you bench a kid in high school, you can get sued for jeopardizing their college recruitment status. If you bench a kid in college, you can get sued for jeopardizing their pro-recruitment status. Coaches can't do anything to discipline their players these days without some risk to their jobs...
Great Janitor: And the nerfing of the next generation continues...Oh big farking deal, a couple of blisters. One day I screwed up at home and set my right hand on fire (magic trick gone wrong). My parents gave me some aspirin, then yelled at me for an hour. The next day they handed me a safety pin, told me to pop the blisters, put some band aids on my hand and not to be late for school.Blisters aren't a big deal. You made a commitment to your coach to show up to all practices on time ready to practice. It's May, even by January you should know that the coach expects you to be on the field on time ready to practice and if you aren't going to be there you should at the very least let him/her know and you should also know what to expect, punishment wise, if you are late or not ready to practice.I remember hearing a speech by a former high school football coach named Art Williams. He said that when he coached, if he heard another player say the word "can't", then that player got paddled. And he was proud of that paddle. And if a player heard another player say the word "can't", that player got to paddle the player who said "can't". He bragged about how you could not invent a word game or trick any player on his team into saying the word "can't". Now we have coddled little children who whine when their coaches punish them when they fail to live up to the commitments which they made.When I was 17, I was on a school trip one weekend. I was part of the JROTC and we were doing an orienteering meet. This one weekend in November, in the middle of the woods, I slipped down a hill and put my foot into a hornets nest. I was stung 27 times. I did not finish the course that day. It was a two day event. That night my parents offered to drive the couple hundred miles to pick me up, but I declined. Yes I hurt. Oh fark did I hurt that night. I stayed that night in the hotel with my fellow friends and cadets, and the next day, knowing that there was zero chance at placing I still ran the course. Even being in pain (not as much as the day before) I ran through the woods and completed that course. That Christmas I received plenty of shirts advertising for a team called the Hornets, a plastic model of a Hornet fighter jet, rubber hornets and some toy bees. These kids, if they complain about some blisters, if they went through what I did, probably would have called up their parents, crying and asking to come home. Me, I stuck it out and got a sympathy pass to second base that night in the hotel.
sendtodave: J. Frank Parnell: Exercise hurts.Well, OK. Sure.Then the question is "if excercise hurts, should kids have to do excercise?"Because that is advocating hurting kids.
