Legionnaires Fire Another Coach

The "AAA" midget Legionnaires soap opera is now into season five.

This time Kent Woods is the victim of the coaching gas chamber. The announcement came down yesterday.

That's another coach in the growing list. I'll leave me personal thoughts on the problems out of this one... draw your own conclusions.

I'm heading back into work this morning to get the 411 from Donovan Fehr who has been filling in my absense at the radio station. If I wrangle up some info I'll post something.

I'd be interested in your opinion on the problems with this program. Maybe that is what is needed, for more people to speak up and try to find some solutions.

You would think that after all these years of problems, the finger pointing would go to management instead of the coaches.

I agree, as well it would be nice to see some positive stuff written instead of negative.Lots of people are working hard to make sure this team represents it self well in Westerns, including the kids and the 17 year olds that had solid spots on their SJHL teams this year and decided to come back to help out. So how about everyone jumping on the positive bandwagon and help this team meet thier goals!!!!!

Bottom line - when you have a Tim Tisdale committed to grow the program for years and you fire him for NO legitimate reason other than the fact that he doesn't kiss ass and he tells the truth, you are gonna have problems. Having said that, Regan Darby is a guy with good knowledge who connests well with the kids and hopefully he will be able to make it work.

Like i said before get Mr phoney out of there....Bottom line. Jon you better post this because the people in swift current have to start to relize if your going to play with the big boys you have to get outside help. Its sad some of the coaches Phoney has let go because we have to play the local boys. Oh by the way is there a goaltender who is starting for the world jrs who got cut by the legion. That pretty well sums it up.

Who the hell are you refering to in your comment? Oh, by the way, Dustin Takarski was released by 4 other teams in this league as well, but you don't mention that. Ever heard of a late bloomer?
