Football is a character building sport!
Andy Towle over at the Towleroad Blog, posted this gem! Given the news with Joe Pa and now this doofus from Wyoming, though, makes one wonder whether the “character” being developed is worthwhile or just friggin’ f*&%ed up and warped.
The irony noted in the final paragraph is especially precious!
Wyoming Football Coach Quits Over Survey Asking Players if They’re ‘Queer’ or Have ‘Woman-Like Hormones’
Pat Lynch, the football coach of Buffalo High School in Wyoming resigned this week after it was revealed he had handed out an offensive “Hurt Feelings Report” to players which included boxes for them to check with attributes like “I am a pussy”, “I am a queer”, “I am a little bitch”, and “My butt is easily hurt” (see above).
LynchSaid Lynch in a resignation letter to the school board, according to the Buffalo Bulletin:
“I would like to apologize for my lack of judgment and the poor choice that I made from my position as head football coach for Buffalo High School. I know that this situation has caused you pain and discomfort, and for that I am truly sorry. As a person and a professional, I believe I will learn and grow from this experience and use it to help others. I appreciate having had the opportunity to coach in this community for the past 22 years. It has been a rewarding experience. I am eager to earn back your trust as I continue to serve in a profession that I truly love.”
Despite his resignation as football coach and weight room supervisor, Lynch is being allowed to remain on at the school as a guidance counselor, the Casper Tribune reports. (because I’m sure all the LGBTQ kids will feel comfortable talking to him)
