What if that persons child googles their fathers name and sees some of the personal attacks people post. I LOVE THIS BOARD!!! I have always tried to help people on this journey as well as learn from my fellow posters. I feel that i have alot to offer because i was a top junior as well as a top 15 nationally ranked collegiate player. I have coached for some of the best coaches in America(Nick B,Manny D,Craig J,and many others). All i asked TCF to do was to remove something personal he said about my daughters coach and he refused. I just dont think it is appropriate to post personal things on this site that can be seen by the whole world. If you think someone is a bad coach or a money making scheme its o.k but PLEASE dont attack someones family on here for the world to see. Remember that things you say can be seen by someones children and i just dont think its appropriate. I appreciate the moderators for removing those comments that were posted. TCF i look at you as someone i like to talk with daily about junior tennis. I hope you come back because you really do have some very good information to offer. I promise i will quit posting so much about my daughters coach its just exciting to be a part of the next wave of future WTA stars in the making. If we keep personal attacks off this board it will be a very useful tool for parents who are all going thru the same thing.I have always been someone who can forgive and forget.
GA, I would probably agree that many posters including TCF and perhaps even you can go over the top at times. That's what makes this board entertaining. Having said that, I think you have mischaracterized what TCF may have said as a personal attack on the good coach's family. I believe that particular piece of information TCF identified would have been valuable and quite pertinent to any parent searching for a new coach - and would categorically have been a deal breaker in my case if I was that parent.
