I won’t say who it is or when this happened, but it gives you insight as to the types of things that go on.
Little Johny’s father came to practice today and told me his son is leaving to your team. So I have to let you know that I believe either that this came from you or one of your staff.
At this point I have to inform you that I will not be able to have a friendship with you since this has happened too many times in the past.
I would have expected you to tell them to stay with me since I can help that kid, but it seems that he made up his mind to come to you.
Good luck with your Academy.
Some things of note:
* The player was perhaps his best.
* The player in question came to us. We did not recruit. And even if we did actively pursue a player we liked, what’s the problem? You can’t compete?
I guess we should tell players that come to us to stick with a shit product? 🙂
