Something smells fishy here

In his column Friday, while making reference to the recent resignation of Davis High School football coach Steve Smyte among other athletic coaching changes over the past three years, Bruce Gallaudet writes, “(Superintendent Winfred) Roberson is uniquely qualified as an administrator to deal with athletics. He’s a former Cal football player who was on staff at Centennial High (Corona) during state-championship football years.”

Gallaudet implies that Roberson’s experience at these high levels of high school and college football bring something positive to DHS. I view football at these high levels as out of control, over-emphasized and often corrupt. I would prefer a superintendent who is not a product of this twisted culture.

Oh, and by the way, if Julie Crawford is somehow not suitable to coach the girls volleyball team, how could she be suitable to coach the boys volleyball team? Is there something regarding the gender of the volleyball teams that would make her suitable to coach one team and not the other?

Either you are a suitable coach or you are not. Something smells very fishy here.
