This is not politics. Politics is playing or keeping a kid because you have an incentive too. This is reverse politics. It is cutting a player because you cant deal with the parent. I understand it and yes I have not picked certain kids because of their parents. Not the best kid in the school but a mediocre kid who MIGHT help me but not worth the parents. I was there but reading the original message you made the coach's life miserable so yes he took it out on your kid. That is life. We say on here all the time don't talk to the coach except about life and things that will hurt your kid. Your story is one of those that we will point to in years to come when parents want to go talk to a coach or criticize a coach or get involved other than when asked to get involved. I'm sorry your son has to be the result of it but it happens. There are kids who are not drafted or given a scholarship because of the parents.
