Akers Out at GC?

Recommended Posts

This needs to stop in my opinion. What is seemingly a crack or knock on Gste City fans is actually hurtful and mean spirited towards Akers. That man doesn't deserve this. And yes, it is mean spirited and hurtful towards Akers even though the jab is towards GC fans. I get that, but the more time that passes by from Akers no longer being the coach at GC, the joke or jabs by keeping this thread alive become more hurtful to Akers than it does to the GC fans on this board. Only my take and I know not popular, but since he's gone from GC, the jabs or joke of keeping this thread alive shift more to Akers expense, and away from GC fans.

I feel like the overwhelming majority of this thread is actually NOT about Akers at all. It took a life of it's own. No one at this point is taking shots at Akers, we are just continuing a thread that is possibly in contention for the longest of all time.

And I doubt if Akers reads this board.

 

Akers & his assistants read the board daily. One of the assistants wrote me on here directly asking me to fight him 1. At his job & 2. I’m front of school children.

If Akers or his staff read message boards that is all the reason I will ever need for them being terrible coaches. I agree with the premise of not a lot of talent on the team, but if you are going around butt hurt from a message board the is a "you" problem. If you don't wear your feelings on your sleeve you won't get them hurt...

You’re fooling yourself if you think that coaches from ALL the area schools aren’t reading this board

I am pretty sure Gate City has used forum posts and newspaper quotes as locker room material during the Colobro days. 

 

It can be a motivational technique.

 

I am certain they are not the first or the last to do so. 

 

Coaches, teachers, professors, and bosses read social media quite frequently.

I have seen gate city play off and on the last thirty years, one of the last times was a playoff loss to glenvar. Gate played them tight even though their was a definite talent gap. Over the last 3-4 years is it a cycle or kids not wanting to play football like at other high schools.

Just wondering how do you guys know that a bunch of head coaches read this board? Do you ask each individual coach? Or just go off the word that a person's team's head coach said they read it?

Not trying to upset you...just curious

I know that but I would think most head coaches wouldn't be stupid enough to use real names when signing up...but guess some do

Not sure why anybody would use a fake name when signing up.
