Earlier this year
Welcome to the Richard DIckel Era
From what I witnessed tonight, either Forestville have certainly made the wrong choice in their new appointment, or Richard Dickel has a lot of work to do.
Firstly, as the clock is about to wind down in a 20 point loss to Forestville, the opposition team looks to hold the ball to let the clock run down. The Forestville defender tries to steal the ball of his opposition player and fouls him. So all the parents start jeering and booing during the free throws. Where do fully grown adaults get off bullying a 14 year old.
Then in a later game with 3.8 secopnds left on the clock a different Forestville coach who is up by 7 points and has the ball in his teams possesion decides to call time out. Quickly the crowd is aware that the margin needed to finish top is 5 pionts, but rather than just inbound the ball safely to secure the win which could have easily be done because the opponent wasnt even trying, they run a 'trick' play to rub salt into the wounds. The Eastern coach was quite rightly very disappointed in this behaviour of rubbing in the win.
I hope not, but could this be the kind of leadership that our newly appointed leader is instructing on the club. Is there any leadership left at Forestville or has that been thrown out the door when Dave Laurie was not re-appointed.
