This unfort goes against the ideas of Safe Scouting and Two Deep
Protect yourself! What is you meet with a boy named Randy... you tell
Randy that for the good of all he had better remain a bit quieter during
Closing Circle... a good idea of the face of it...
But Randy goes hone and tells Mom and Dad tha tMr. Smith pulled him aside
and told him he was a "Dumb Little Sh*t" and tha tif he did nto
straighten up he was goign to personally "Kick My Ass".....
Don't say it don't happen cause I have seen it happen...
I saw it happen with a Coach on AYSO Soccer
I believe the Coach but... we had to let him go....
