Coaching a School Football Team in Queensland

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 06:22:01 -0500

Why An Annual NFL V College All-Stars Game Would Work

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 06:45:35 -0600

Using Interchange in Junior Australian Football Games

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 06:17:54 -0600

The interchange rule was the greatest change in Australian football for coaches of young teams. It meant that the coach could give every player in every position maximum 'on-ground' experience. This helped to develop all players more quickly and lessened the dropout rate of the initially less able boys.

I recently found myself in a conversation on this topic with a few prominent college and professional football coaches. To be clear before continuing on, I used jerk in my title to keep it as clean as possible, but much more colorful language was used in our conversation.

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 06:16:12 -0500

Today, in modern Australian Football, these "Little Things of Australian Football" are called the "one percenters".

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 06:24:26 -0500

As with all sport, there are cardinal sins made by players that give their opponents in the game a chance to score. Australian football is no different. Today, in modern football, they are called "clangers" and appear in the statistics compiled during the game. This article was originally written as part of a coaching plan for the Queensland Schoolboys team as part of their preparation for the 1973 Australian National Championships against the might of Victoria, Western Australia and South Australia where these ideas were ingrained in the players' psyche. In Queensland, as a minor sport, there was much less passing on of these ideas to young players by their coaches.

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 07:06:18 -0600

Managing Youth Athlete Sports Pressure

Sat, 14 Feb 2015 10:09:45 -0600

In my opinion managing youth athlete sports pressure is one of the most mismanaged and neglected aspects in a young athlete's development and a disservice to their best interest. Some pressure can be beneficial to an athlete's development. An example of this is when a young player may need some encouragement. Telling him or her that they can do it... get out there... go do it and then praising them for their progress is positive pressure. This pressure can go a long ways in developing a players self - confidence and can even lead to a player that can develop into a better player.

That Moment In The Sun

Mon, 19 Jan 2015 05:40:43 -0600

At what a better time of the year with the NFL Championship and this year's Super Bowl on the line to relate that athletes in all levels in any sport do at some point experience euphoria, a high as you will, of a fleeting moment of sheer excellence unmatched by teammates, opponents, or even themselves.

Just Say No to the Preseason Poll

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 14:14:52 -0500

The annual release of the preseason coaches poll or "USA Today Poll" ignites the excitement of the college football fan. Immediate optimism or disrespect is felt based upon the opinions of coaches who spend every waking hour focused on improving their team, and certainly don't have the time to become experts on 120+ other FBS programs. Nonetheless, because of tradition, and perhaps to give the media something to talk about in the agonizing weeks leading up to the start of the season, we continue to allow this to happen year after year.

Week 4 College Football Picks 2014

The NFL League Office Has a Culture Problem

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 05:30:28 -0500

Any organization that works in isolation tends to become disconnected from their customers, which in turn, leaves them out of touch with what is considered repugnant behavior.

Rather than being forward looking and innovative, they often choose to be closed minded and push their problems under the rug until events force them to be dealt with.

How Safe Is Your Player Off the Field?

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 13:19:55 -0500

In just the first EIGHT months of 2014, 34 NFL players have been arrested! That would average one arrest per week. One of the reasons why? Professional athletes are coached on every level of being an athlete, but they have very little understanding or education on what it takes to be a responsible professional off the field! As one athlete recently told me, "We are told what to do right from the start. When we are left alone to figure out our personal lives, of course we are not very good at it!"

Why Professional Football Should Be Banned From Network TV

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 09:03:49 -0500

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that professional sports being shown on network TV, football in particular, have absolutely no redeeming value and do not provide any benefit to anybody. Even though they are loosely defined as entertainment, there is nothing entertaining about watching football on television and therefore, it should be banned from network TV. There is much more quality programming that could easily take up the slots that are wasted by professional sport programming. For example, there are many great programs on PBS that are not only educational, many of them also raise money for worthy causes. The only thing advertising on football programming does is perpetuate the unhealthy lifestyles that are destroying American families and American Youth both mentally and physically. The only thing that is worse than sports programming is "reality TV," which is rarely based on anything real. Please, take a stand, and when NFL football comes to a TV screen near year, turn it off and do something fun and educational with your family. Someday they will thank you for it.
