Fighting a losing battle with parents

There's a longstanding joke among members of the media regarding what it's like to deal with parents who are out of control.
It goes something like this: "The best school to cover athletics at would be at an orphanage. Why? Because there are no parents."
Unfortunately, that seems to be the case more and more each year. All Kosmo has to do and see what's going on at Troy right now.
The Colts aren't playing to their talent level and there's signs of pouting and moping all over with players.
As spy Keith D. said in Sunday's Oakland Press, the problem is not head coach Gary Fralick. He's as good as it gets as a human being, an educator and a coach. If players can't play for him, then there isn't anybody they can play for, college coaches included.
Kosmo isn't around Troy, but he has a feeling kids and parents are at the center of the conflict.
Then the K-Man read a report about how the Grosse Pointe Woods University Liggett girls basketball coach quit because of parental issues. Oh, and by the way, Liggett made the state title game in Class C this year and has a definite shot to win it all this year.
Kosmo sure feels sorry for the assistant who has to take the reigns now. He or she will probably agree soon that it'd be better to coach at an orphanage also.
