innuendo = paddlers really suck, coaches are humble and selfless, don't ever challenge the coach, their revenge is swift.

Even funnier the second time around.

Frickin funny... Sad part is I've been a part of, or seen this conversation so many times.

"You mean I'm not going to win races if I just show up to practice?"

good one tim! i think i've heard all of those. i instantly thought you must be coaching second year A's.

Replace the word "Ironman" with Molokai Hoe, Solo, Paa Eono etc.

LOL! Jeremy, yup i coach Novice B's and A's and can't figure out which is worse…. the B's that take sooo much patience to deal with but never talk back or question what you say because they literally know nothing about paddling except what you've told them… OR the A's (especially ones that went to states as B's) who have finally started to get it and don't need to be babysat so much but at the same time are over night all-star paddlers that know everything and question every crew decision you make.
@ Painteur… Love that one too!

That's why it's best to have a coach that everyone is scared to talk shit about : )

Try to talk like that to Gerard Teiva (Shell's former coach)... All you'll get is a 7 hours long paddle for next saturday !

In case there are any beach cat sailors, or maybe some steersmen can relate

Awwww come on tim! We wernt THAT bad! IMO Our crew had some major morall issues near the end of season considering we lost key paddlers, but even considered, Placing 5th in states was a Huge leap up From last year.

btw, Most of us (at least me) WERE too scared to talk to you....maybe thats why i probally spoke about one sentence all season....hmmm...

anyways, best of luck in the molokai hoe. im actually in oahu for the foreseeable future, but maybe i'll see u at states next year? we'll see.
