(Source) – School district officials Tuesday placed longtime La Mirada High athletic director and baseball coach Kim Brooks on paid administrative leave after the release of an audiotape which captured Brooks shouting and screaming for nearly 17 minutes in a profanity-laced tirade directed at the high school ballplayers. The recording features Brooks repeatedly cursing at his players, questioning their dedication to the program and inviting players to transfer to another school. “I’ve been here a long time,” Brooks began. “I will tell you that was probably the most pathetic (expletive) baseball game I’ve ever seen a group play!” The screaming fit continued as Brooks belittled the teens and their commitment to him and their team. “I am not what we did today,” Brooks screamed. “This is not me! And you represent me!” Brooks later told the team it’s “an honor and a privilege” to play for La Mirada. “If you don’t get it, (expletive) get out. Get the (expletive) out! That’s the way it’s been, and that’s the way it’s gotta be until I (expletive) die. If you don’t like it, it’s easy to transfer.”
Here we go again with this shit. Ah, coach spoke to our boys in a slightly off color tone! He must be disciplined! Who never had a coach speak to them like that? Honestly? And I’m not even trying to make is seem like I had the roughest, toughest coaches in history. I actually think mine were pretty reserved. But if you played like shit? Fucking right you got yelled at like this. This isn’t even a “tirade” it’s just “a postgame speech after a loss.” My only problem is what player thinks it’s OK to take your cellphone out and start recording coach in the middle of the locker room? Clearly Coach Kim is right about these La Mirada being little shitheads who don’t have respect for the game, the coach or the school and who can’t make routine infield plays. Seriously imagine what goes on in the mind of someone who’s getting yelled at for playing poorly and they think to grab their cellphone, record it, and show it to school administrators? If I were on that team I would 100% snitch on that kid and get him kicked off. Can’t win with guys like that. What happens in the locker room, stays in the locker room. That goes for borderline gay rat tail fights and coach’s f-bombs.
Editors Note – Give it to me one time! Give it to me! Come on! Give it to me! DO YOU HAVE ANY PRIDE DANNY!!!! For my money still the best coach speech on the internet.
