Anyone following this manslaughter case against the HS football coach?
Well there are two sides to this. Parents allow their kids to play sports in the heat, and coaches push their kids too hard. If you want to keep your kids safe do not encourage them to play sports in the excessive heat, but some might think I am too protective.
It's a complicated case. It may be that the young man's death had nothing to do with the football anyway.
I am not taking sides, I am just saying some people are more heat sensitive than others. I can handle hundred degree plus weather, but many people I know swelter just walking from their car in this type of heat. However, to be on the safe side it might be a good idea not to let your kids play sports in the heat, and several kids have died here in Southern California from the same type of thing.
If the parents do decide to let their kids participate it seems a little 'off' to then arrest the coach.
I do not agree with arresting the coach on this one. Several kids died from playing sports in the heat locally, and I never remember the parents prosecuting the coach.

Is Baseball a dying sport?I think yes. World Series ratings are down by 65% in the last 25 years. Same goes for the All Star Game. Fox had its worst year in ratings for their game of the week in 2012 (averaged a 2 share for 24 games). Don't let the local TV deals or fantasy leagues fool you.
