    Some good stuff there. Sports message boards are out of control.

    In suburban Cleveland, a HS football coach resigned at practice Monday and part of the reason is because the seniors were upset with him for taking many of them out with the team down 20 early in the fourth, making them think he was giving up on them. One player took his disappointment to the Cleveland.com message boards and aired the team's dirty laundry. Because of that, the coach resigned.

    When a team is down by 20, it would take a pull-a-rabbit-out-of-your-ass miracle to come from behind. In most cases with high schools, you can't comeback from a 3-TD deficit.

    The coach makes the call if to pull them out of the game to prevent being embarassed or keep in them on the field. It took the seniors to bitch and not ask him to his face.

    Good luck Eastlake North with the rest of your season. All because of a few bitchy seniors.

    And heaven forbid he gets other kids in the game than those whiny seniors.
