EAGLEPALOOZA post from January 27, 2012 stated: “A school that has 80 students and 20 potential football players has no sense forming a football program. This school since day one has lacked sound direction both academically and athletically. Any solid athlete will be wasting their prime high school years playing there. If you have a child that wants to become a student athlete and play in a "real" sports environment than Lely is the only choice for the Marco Island resident.” The level of discipline at MIA is zero tolerance for behavior that is disruptive in the class room. The quarterback that started for MIA against St. John Neumann game was benched for the first three quarters for not adhering to the MIA discipline code and the student athlete has a 3.5 grade point average. I applaud MIA’s football coaches, principal and teachers for instilling discipline in the classroom and question would the other high school you suggested the MIA athletes attend sit a starter on the bench for talking out in class? The new starting quarterback for the game did a phenomenal job stepping up with only a few days to prepare. The coach and principal allowed the quarterback from the St. John Neumann game to return in the fourth quarter and his first play from the line of scrimmage was a 60 yard touchdown pass. It is my understanding that the student athlete accepts he has to earn his position back as a starter by his actions in the classroom which he now realizes are more important than as his performance on the field. The fact that you misspelled several words in your previous posts served as an explanatory of why EAGLEPALOOZA has no meaning. In your glory days you must have been a boxer “The EAGLE” and obviously had one too many rope-a-dopes. You must not have been successful because you became known as a palooka which is an epithet for an easily beaten athlete. The name is used primarily towards boxers who lacked physical intelligence and coordination. The correct spelling of your name is “EAGLEPALOOKA” not “EAGLEPALOOZA”. If you need assistance updating your profile with the paper simply reach out and I will help facilitate but remember when doing so always maintain your gloves upward to protect your head from further brain damage!

EAGLEPALOOZA stated that MIA could not beat a “bad” Junior Varsity team. MIA’s played St. John Neumann’s JV team two weeks ago and St. John Neumann pulled several players from their Varsity squad down for the game against MIA. EAGLEPALOOZA must have missed the Neumann game? The final score was within a few points. MAXPREPS, which rates high school sports programs nationwide ranks St. John Neumann as number 14 in the state in division 2A. Saint John Neumann has consistently maintained a strong football program. In two years MIA will field juniors and seniors that will have the opportunity to play St. John Neumann in the “NEXT LEVEL” Varsity football game. Based on your prediction the game will not come to fruition. EAGLEPALOOZA post from November 15, 2011 stated: “This school wont even be in existence in 2 years. The principal bailed out after only 3 months and there are a lot of problems with regard to discipline. They are getting a reputation of dysfunctionality not world class as promised. I will be surprised if they have 100 kids next year. This school needs to focus on education and not football.” Our president also made a bold prediction by stating; “if I cannot turn around the economy in three years I do not deserve to be reelected”. I feel certain that like the president you too will still be around two years after your gross miscalculation. I would welcome the opportunity to sit next to you in 2014 when MIA and St. John Neumann meet for their first equally matched varsity football game.
