(So please read the article first.)
The coach accuses the athletic director of discriminating against him because she wanted him to coach three teams instead of two... he claims the lesbian boss also fired other faculty with young kids who couldn't commit the weekend time.
I wonder who gets something like this on the cover of the Post. My guess is, it's the guy who is suing, trying to make a stink because 1) He just didn't like his new boss 2) She was changing/enforcing a school policy and making him work harder.
My guess is Trinity's athletics SUCKED and they poached St. John School's athletic director with some $$ and the chance to live in NYC. According to the St. John's site, this athletic director took a losing girl's basketball squad and turned them into champions.
I think if you have kids, they need to understand that during the season, coaching comes first.... isn't that the dilemma of every professional athlete, Broadway star, etc.? It takes time on the weekends, so, goodbye weekend.
NOW, TO BE FAIR, this new athletic director lady may be breaking the school's policy, which is (according to the coach) that a coach only needs to coach two teams. She's possibly doing this by forcing the coach to teach a third team and overextend himself.
But if I were the school, I'd back her. I think the fact she hired young lesbian coaches to "replace" the fired coaches is IRRELEVANT. How about SHITTY coaches vs. GREAT coaches? Coaches who GO THE EXTRA MILE and INSPIRE THE KIDS TO TRAIN HARD AND WIN?
WHY THE HECK does their SEXUAL ORIENTATION have anything to do with it?
Let's take a look at the fired coach's record... and the athletic record of the New Athletic Director's Previous School VS. Trinity's Athletic Record Before She Arrived.
Then we can begin to judge our society on MERIT like we are SUPPOSED TO.
IF indeed she fired a great coach via reverse discrimination SHE SHOULD BE FIRED. But IF she hired a BAD coach... or a LAZY coach... or an ENTRENCHED coach who did not fit in with the school's new athletic goals... I say, FUCK HIM and his HOMOPHOBIC SLANDER.
Schools like Trinity are HIGHLY SENSITIVE to diversity issues and their HR dept. is watching all this stuff carefully.
I look forward to seeing how this story plays out and I'm curious to see if this Mary Poppins is indeed a Cruella De Ville....or if this news story is just MORE OF THE SAME HATE.
