    So who fired the manager, not the players? Must be the owners.

    If students could fire teachers…. oh, what a wonderful world it would be…

    Caulfield is reading the sports pages? And running the risk of being exposed to the horrors of auto racing and golf? Must have been absolutely nothing else lying around for him to read.

    Actually, Frazz, it does work that way, at times. Players can and do occasionally revolt, and sometimes they succeed in getting rid of their Bligh. In mid-August of 2012, several Boston Red Sox players met with team ownership and expressed their extreme unhappiness with manager Bobby Valentine. He was fired six weeks later. Canning the skipper is always an ownership decision, but it’s usually one the players aren’t happy about, as it was their own failure that cost a man his job. As the saying goes, though, “You can’t fire all the players.”

    Students on college campuses have occasionally tried that, usually with limited success.

    Me & mine managed it once in a public HS, took a well documented accusation of malfeasance and threatening litigation, and even then we spent the rest of HS being harassed by his dishonest faculty buddies.

    Congratulations on your success, but sorry to hear about the harassment.
    Something similar happened to a friend of mine in high school when she turned in some very popular athletes for cheating on a test.
    The cheating turned out to be teacher sanctioned. The resulting scandal made it all the way to the school board. My friend suffered harassment for a very long time afterward.

    Yes, why I’d like to end such sports in schools. Let them start their own sports schools.

    They are getting ready to give college players a piece of the pie.

    Now is a good time for Frazz to explain to Caulfield the hard facts of life. But he can save the alcohol lecture for some public middle school principal. He should, however, warn Caulfield that things change from the elementary school level where everyone is pure and good. The football coach/teachers who run the public middle schools are despicable miscreants turned destructive over their lust to have every boy in a jockstrap. To that end classes will be formed that have no books or teaching in order to save money for football. Parents will fight like tigers to keep their kids out of them. Caulfield will be vulnerable if they sense his parents aren’t watching out for him. Once he’s in those classes, it will be accepted by all that he belongs, no matter his test scores or intelligence, or previous school performance. Good luck climbing out of that hole later. If you have never even seen certain academic material, you won’t know it exists. Later, he will have to study things he has no background for, and his academics will suffer for it through fault of his own.

    What’s really pathetic is they will think they are doing Caulfield a favor by shanghaing him onto the football team. Now he no longer needs academics, they will say. Football teaches a lot of life lessons, they love to think. The toughness and perseverance learned from football will now be needed to overcome the bad classes.

    If he calls her Skipper, she’ll call him Little Buddy.
