Default He told a kid to slide. Then he got sued.

Lawyers in this country have gone completely off the rails. When a coach is sued for coaching a game as any normal coach would do, and gets sued for it, it is time to take a serious look at Tort Reform in this country.


It's a fairly lengthy article, but a good read.

Our society has become the 'blame someone' society, which also seems to include 'where's the money?' as it's theme song.

Remind me to tell you the story of the pellet gun at one of our stores....

Somebody needs to tell those mommies and daddies of the candy ass generation that sports come with risks. Line up the bottom feeding lawyers, and judges...(figuratively speaking, for the benefit of any lurking snowflakes out there)
