Angry letter from lacrosse coach

This posted by Tom Ley of Deadspin and contains some off-color wording so we ordinarily wouldn’t publish this. But there is something here about the coach/player/parent dynamic that is all too common in ultra-competitive youth travel sports. This may be over the top, especially because it seems to pertain to a middle school player, but when reading it one wonders where the real truth in the situation lies.
