Wyoming coach resigns after forcing offensive survey on players (Hurt Feelings Report Card)
Yahoo News ^ | 14NOV2011 | Cameron Smith

Posted on 11/14/2011 11:28:37 AM PST by Jack Hydrazine

A high school football coach in Wyoming has resigned after orchestrating what may be the single least appropriate motivational tactic in recent years, handing his players a "Hurt Feelings Report" in which students were asked to select from various offensive options to describe why they were upset.

As first reported by the Buffalo Bulletin, Casper Star-Tribune and The Advocate before being circulated throughout the internet, Buffalo (Wyo.) High football coach Pat Lynch offered up a questionnaire to his players that offered the following possible reasons for their disappointment, as reported by The Advocate (beware in reading the following paragraph: Some of the choices are pretty abhorrent):

The survey, under a list of reasons for hurt feelings, includes such choices as "I am a queer," "I am a little bitch," and "I have woman like hormones." It asks for the name of the "little sissy filing report" and his "girly-man signature," plus the "real-man signature" of the person accused of causing hurt feelings.

You can see a full copy of the survey here.

I don't know if it would be okay to publish his email address (posted on the Buffalo High School website) but I did send him an email thanking him for being a winning coach that does not want the boys he coaches to grow up emasculated.

This guy is my new hero. Whoever wanted him fired because he hurt their feelings is probably a little bitch.

You did not get it either, none of this crap was in his job description. His job was to teach the game and guide the players in the development of their abilities.

Be sure to send him a supportive email. I’m sure he won’t mind a bit!

Unbelieveable that he was forced to resign over this. A sign that PC crap has filled the brains of public school “educators” even in the hinterlands. Defund their institutions NOW.

I’d guess that he got this somewhere else and passed it out as a humorous attempt to try to solve some problem on his team.

I wonder if they found out about it because one of his players actually filled out their “hurt feeling report”.

Irony kills.

I saved a copy. I would love to give it to my crews, but with the amount of tax dollars that have been wasted on training trying to make sure that I don’t hand this type of thing out... I probably shouldn’t.

As growing, young men, not women. Teaches do a lot that isn’t in their job description. Why should he be the exception? Because he offended the emasculated Leftists and the Feminist there doing it?

I’d vote for him to POTUS if it was possible! Oh, wait a minute! That’s not in his job description! I’ll settle for second best - make him principal of the school!

"The survey was clearly intended as a joke to poke fun at political correctness and to unify the team; as coach since 1998, Pat Lynch had led his team to a 96-40 record, twelve playoff appearances, six state championship games, and back-to-back 4A state titles in 2004 and 2005.

So he was a proven leader and motivator of young men. But this cut no ice with a few sissies who got their panties in a twist when they saw the survey.

So they cried to the school board and the board lowered the boom. But Superintendent Dr. Rod Kessler wasn't totally vindictive, which is why Lynch was allowed to stay on as guidance counselor. "

They shoulda filled out the form AND THEN handed it in to the school board.

He actually sounds like a masculine man with a serious but funny side! Better than anally raping his students, right?

"I am a queer," "I am a little bitch," and "I have woman like hormones." It asks for the name of the "little sissy filing report" and his "girly-man signature," plus the "real-man signature"

Jerry Sandusky gave that very same quiz. ....albeit for different reasons.

He still has his job as the guidance counselor for the school. My coaches used to do this kind of stuff all the time and it really did motivate a lot of guys to stop complaining and step up. It is a shame those days are gone. Look around you and you see how much worse we are because of the PC crap.

Yup.

Just another moron who mistakes assholery for manhood. A real man can be tough and teach discipline, while still being respectful. A lesser man resorts to be being cruel and demeaning.

You either have rules are you do not. I am for letting parents teach their own kids sex and morality. No exceptions period. Teach the subject, it is in the contract. Same thing if you have a homo coach, what do you want him to teach your son.

Yup. The coach should not be joking around with the players in this manner. He needs to keep his mind on his duties and worry a little bit less about being "Cool Mom"...

This is right up there with the addition of kids ball leagues that don’t keep score or have winners (and the necessary losers).

He taught his students to win in a masculine way. Look at his record of wins! He obviously taught the rules to help them become those winners that the sissy boys didn’t like to follow.

I’d love for him to coach/teach my sons to be winners any day!

When I was in school I had a basketball coach who would say all that and more as he turned six shades of purple before firing his whistle through a plate glass window.

We all thought that just went with the territory of being a coach.

"Naturally, the gay rights lobby is unforgiving. Equality For All sent a letter to the Casper Star-Tribune demanding Lynch's FULL resignation, meaning being stripped of employment altogether. They claim Lynch's apology isn't good enough.

And the Casper Star-Tribune is also editorially calling for the complete termination of Pat Lynch. They question whether any students who have been bullied or harassed due to their sexual orientation can now possibly look to Lynch for help or guidance on any subject. They claim that if Lynch is allowed to keep his job, it implicitly shows that the district doesn’t take such discrimination seriously.

The lack of forgiveness shown by the gay rights group, the Star-Tribune, and many commenters to the various Wyoming media stories is appalling. If this is truly representative of local Wyoming opinion on this issue, this country is in grave trouble, because it means political correctness has now infested the very heartland itself. This was clearly no more than an attempt by Lynch to weld the team closer together through humor. If we protect and cocoon students against all adversity now while under controlled and supervised conditions, how does that effectively prepare them for dealing with adversity when they become on their own as adults, away from the protective embrace of parents and other mentors? "

Do not protect either side, make rules follow them. His job was to coach, teaching the game of football and that is it, morality is the parents job.

It's not morality. It's teamwork and personal responsibility.

He should'a used the "military" one, or better yet made his own along similar lines.

Wrong, wrong, a thousand times wrong. THE most important part of any coach’s job is to make sure the players become functioning adults, able to stand on their own two feet. Winning is secondary to developing men and women.

I coached ice hockey for 30 years. I ws not a winning coach, mostly because I volunteered for the B level teams. But, the letters from players and parents thanking me are worth more than any win. I remember one player who refused to move up to an A team just so he could play on my team.

Indeed.

In fact some of the best life lessons used to come from our Coaches.

Guess that is verboten now.

Surprising that such would be an issue for a Conservative...

It was the way things used to be before the lefties got a hold of things.
