Dear Editor:

I was visiting from Wilkes Barre on a recent weekend and I attended the Palmerton Booster Club's midget football game for the 5 and 6 year olds and it caused me to be compelled to write this letter.

The coaches behavior was appalling!!! I may have overlooked the fact that there were many litle kids who never even got into the game, not ever for a play; I also may have overlooked the fact that the coaches continually screamed at the officials and at their 5 and 6 year old team. What I could not overlook happened at the end of the game when the head coach stormed off the field and yelled this is f_ _ _ ing ridiculous!!

And yes, he definitly filled in the blanks loud enough for everyone including those little kids on his team to hear, these coaches need to set an example for children. Is this the example Palmerton wants set for their children? I think not.

Please parents, community do something to rectify this situation and help our children learn good sportsmanship and love for the game. Winning at this age should not be everything!!
