Well I have some information that will probably NOT shock you Smith. I have talked to two players from Volunteer. One from the team last year and one from the team this year. And both said that Coach Whittemore of Volunteer told them to take a certain players legs out on a layup or shot if they got one. I will not reveal the names of the players cause they said not to. Now.... they said that it only happened a few of times, but still............... ONCE is WAY more than enough. There is a difference between playing hard, with heart, physicality, than playing dirty. Just think about that and you will know what I am talking about.

 

Hmmm Interesting.

Thats not something you'd want to believe, stepping in the shoes of an opposing player, or Coach.

If this is True, what i dont understand is why tell Teenagers to do that?

This is Highschool Ball, its not the Olympics USA vs Germany team. Its not the end of the world if you get a Layup or Jumper scored on you.... holy cow. What that kind of action could mean is Destroying a kids Dreams, Permanent Injury, ect. This is Highschool Basketball, Lets Get Real. /mad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":angry:" border="0" alt="mad.gif" />

If thats the truth, its sad. and i FOR 1, am Hoping that Garbage style of Play is stopped.

Makes Us as East Tennesse look bad, and Individual schools who do it also.

BUT that is, if thats Truth.

And From watching Volunteer ever since they joined up in our Conference, I'd Believe it too..... /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />

FanoFall you sir, are an idiot. You actually want people to believe that, but without revealing their names. I know for a fact Whitt has never said that crap. I DO, however, know that you now could very well get yourself into some hot water. I'm sure you've read the forum and seen all of the lawsuit stuff. You are specifically citing references, and claiming to have directly heard these Accusations on coach whitt. IF you are going to make these direct quotes you received from former volunteer players public, then you better be 100% sure they're true. Also, these so-called former players could very have not been on good terms with Coach Whitt, and saw this as an opportunity to get him back. If thats the case then they will be in serious trouble, as could you for taking their false information and making it public. My greatest suggestion to both you, and FloorGeneral22, is to stop posting information you have no way of ever proving or knowing is true about Coach Whitt.

 

 

 

If you think I'm just spinning you're wheels, and have no legal experience, think again. If you're around any of the judicial sites, usually Kingsport, Greeneville, or Rogersille, then you very well may know me. Good Luck on guessing /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />

Let me clear the air since I have not posted on here in a while and many may not remember who I am. I am one of the assistant coaches of Volunteer. I attend many practices, games, and trips taken to play the games. I can honestly say that I have NEVER witnessed or heard at ANYTIME where Coach Whittemore has given players instructions to take out ANY player. Many people who know me, know that I would not stand for such actions and would walk out of a game or practice and never return. I do not condone or allow such things to happen. So to all of you who do not like Coach Whittemore or the Volunteer program, your comments are just comments of opinion. I have the facts. If you read my previous posts or my quotes at the end of any post I make, then you would know how I am and what I stand for. This site is a powerful tool, if used the right way. Some posts on here such as Fanofall and FloorGenreal22 show that it is also dangerous to throw accusations around without merit. If there are concerns for any misconduct by a coach or player, this is NOT the place to do it. Put your requests to the TSSAA website. Oh yeah, you have to use your real name there. I truly beleive that all kids that play this game love it and do so because they love their particular program. Some fans on here should support their teams and leave it at that. You don't realize how dangerous any accusation is against a coach, or maybe you do and do not care to damage someone's reputation. Whatever you believe know this....... I will not stand for ANY cheating or "dirty" play by a player or a coach. I do not have to coach; I do it because I want to give back to the game what it has given me over my career as a player and a coach. I have coached just about every big name player from this area from 1993-2003 in AAU. You will not find ONE player that will say that I have ever stood for cheating or "dirty" play, and I will not stand for it now. Again... Good luck to ALL Big Nine teams, players, and coaches. GOD BLESS!!!!!

Now back to our regularly scheduled thread, the Big 9 Conference......

I have not had time to review the Big Nine teams, but I have to assume the Big three (Science Hill, DB, and TN High) will make a push for the top three spots again this year. Central also has a good program year in and year out. There was a correct post by FloorGeneral a couple of weeks ago, we (Volunteer) will upset some teams this year and will probably lose to some we should have won. That's what you get with a young team as we have. As for the other teams, I do not know how they stack up this year due to my busy schedule so I can not predict where they will end up. If anyone sees Dionte Grey, tell him to come see me at the LC. I haven't seen him since before school started. Anyway, can anyone predict where the nine teams will stack up this year. I love to see predictions and how they unfold by the end of the year. GOD BLESS!!!!

I would love to know who told you that cause I personally know everyone on last years team (I was part of it) and i know everyone on this years team minus the upcoming freshmen so if they can tell you these crazy lies then why can't they stand up behind them with their name?

Excuse me Matlock, but I believe you are incorrect. Might want to check your lawbooks again. Slander and Libel both fall under the catagory of defamation. Slander being oral defamation (meaning speaking it to someone) and libel being published defamation (which includes writing or broadcasting). Can you show me where I have stated such opinions as absolute facts? Anyways, I'm done with this subject. It is time to start talking about meaningful basketball topics asothers have stated. The season is here and whether or not my opinions have merit or not can be judged by others. Once again, congrats on the big win. I'll be rooting for you to get another one next Friday.

 

As it turns out we both are correct on this. Since this can be considered a 'chat room' it can be construed as both libel and slander. Kind of a gray area the internet created. But anyway, I just wanted to move the conversation on to basketball on the court.
