FOX25, myfoxboston - A youth soccer coach is off the job after sending home a shocking letter to his team of 6 and 7-year-old girls.
The letter didn't go over so well with parents and the Scituate soccer board and the coach has since resigned.
This is Michael Kinahan's letter:

The letter, that is.
I’d hire him.
unsure if copyright allowed. I always excerpt to be safe
This won’t fly in feminine New England...this will make them cry. The adults, that is...
So what’s the Coach’s FR screen name?
Shocking letter? To extol winning and express a desire to not lose? He was having a little fun, but the letter sounds like it’s from the type of coach I would want.
Some people have no sense of humor. :)
...OK, here's the real deal: Team 7 will be called Green Death. We will only acknowledge "Team 7" for scheduling and disciplinary purposes. Green Death has had a long and colorful history, and I fully expect every player and parent to be on board with the team. This is not a team, but a family (some say cult), that you belong to forever. We play fair at all times, but we play tough and physical soccer. We have some returning players who know the deal; for the others, I only expect 110% at every game and practice. We do not cater to superstars, but prefer the gritty determination of journeymen who bring their lunch pail to work every week, chase every ball and dig in corners like a Michael Vick pit bull. Unless there is an issue concerning the health of my players or inside info on the opposition, you probably don't need to talk to me. Coach MacDonald has been designated "good guy" this year. ...
I don't see the controversy.....
Letter looked fine to me except for the undercooked meat AND this letter is not for little girls.
I think it would have been a great letter for junior high and above.
Not my headline.I agree with him for the most part...
send him up here, i’d send my girls to his team.
I love him. I don’t necessarily want to play for him, or have my kid play for him (it sounds like a lot of work to play for him, frankly) butI applaud his approach and his views. And his humor. Don’t people have any sense of humor anymore? Oh, I forgot, this is yuppie leftist Boston, not America.
Second although possibly bad decision on the coaches part, its obvious parts
are exagerated toungue and cheek humour about playing to win.
Scituate is beautiful people town full of limp wristed liberals......
