Also regarding the video.You 2 or 3 individuals have stated:
"the video clip of a coach patting a player on the head"
"no different than tapping a kid's helmet"
"what is clearly a pat on the back"

Does this look like a pat,or a tap on a helmet.Does this look like it is to the back.You should be embarrassed to have stated this.
Again to minimize,downplay and justify actions of this nature are typical traits of an abuser.

In closing we are demanding the School District decide this month long investigation based on facts.It is not unreasonable that we
ask this.Did these several acts against our son and others happen.The 2 or 3 individuals have clearly shown they have an inside
line to district officials.They have shown how we as responsible parents may be viewed in their eyes.I can assure you it takes a
lot of courage to stand up for what is right.To speak out and call out injustices is not easy.We will not allow our children to be
hit,smacked,etc.etc.To other players,parents and adults who know these things to be true.I understand why others may not be so
forthcoming in their knowledge of the situation.It is not their son,not their problem.I get that.If you can't take a stand for
something then you will fall for anything.

I wanted to summarize comments made on this blog and the other two regarding the current situation
my family and son are dealing with at Lely High School.After reading these I think it is important that the public know who
thes individuals are.
cribguy-myself,father of student athlete
25years on marco-mother of student atlete

florida cracker,islandstyle,realityatlelyhs-Varsity basketball coachig staff.The head coach,assistant coach under investigation
and the third another possible coach or Lely administrator or 1 of the 2 coaches aforementioned using another account name.

The blogs:
Marco News-http://www.marconews.com/news/2012/ju...
Naplesnews Prepzone-http://www.naplesnews.com/news/2012/j...
Naplesnews Education- http://www.naplesnews.com/news/2012/j...

First off I want to thank these 2 or 3 individuals for speaking so freely and openly.You most certainly have revealed who you are
with your detailed knowledge of the situation.These 3 accounts were set up within 1 hour to refute the first post and have no other
comments on any other story.Details regarding basketball practices,post game confrontations,abuses beginning in October,
previous exonerations given to the coach,and most disturbingly how the district sees us as"loose cannons","Laughing stock".
As you know these are very serious acts.Smacking players in the head,throwing basketballs and backpacks to their heads,hitting
them in the face were they receive bloody noses,patterns of constant verbal and mental abuse.To minimize,downplay,justify these
actions is typical characteristics of an abuser.It is not unreasonable that we demand the School District make their decision
based on these facts.DID THESE THINGS HAPPEN.It is the investigator's job to determine this.

Secondly,regarding the video.The audio is not altered.The coach has a full,exact digital copy of the entire game.Play it back for
yourself.It is clip #106 of 192.It happens at the 19 second mark.Again see for yourself.I also appreciate you bring this to light
as I have never mention this in the blogs.As far as being embarrassed,I am not.You should be embarrassed as you allowed this type of
behavior to begin as you said in October until the final game of the year.It the assistant coach,dressed like a slob in a t-shirt
at the most important game of the year smacking a player in the head so hard it is picked up from my camera.Tell me who should be
embarrassed....really.

It looks like he was trying to give him a head shake kinda of like go get em, atta boy etc.... thats just my opinion.

Thanks for watching and I appreciate your opinion.I only wish I could show you the estimated 20-30 times this happened throughout the season,or the bloody nose my son recieved during a contact drill during practice,or the 2 day headache he had after a basketball was hurled into his head at practice,or the other players demeanor after he was hit into the head with a backpack. I look at this video and it almost brings me to tears knowing that this is my son and these thing were done to him and the effects it has had on him.He does not want this attention but I realize you don't know the whole story and it is not your son.

in response to bigfishkd:

I ALMOST FORGOT IF HE ONLY PLACED HIS HAND ON THE KIDS SHOULDER WHY WERE THE POLICE CALLED? IT WAS BAD ENOUGH TO CALL POLICE THEN IT IS BAD ENOUGH NOT TO HAVE HIM COACH NOW..

INSTANT REPLAY? LET'S REVIEW IT... I AM SURE THIS WAS CAUGHT ON TAPE UNLESS ROGER ERASED IT. THE SCHOOL HAS CAMERAS ON EVERY CORNER, THE PARENTS SUPPORTING THIS GUY ONLY WANT HIM TO COACH SO THEY CAN SAY THIER LITTLE DARLIING PLAYED FOR MIKE!! BIG FRICKING DEAL!!!!! MY KID WILL PLAY JUST FINE FOR ANDY DELGADO AND SCOTT GIBBS. AND BY THE WAY HE GOT HIS FAIR SHAKE,, HE SHOOK THE KIDS HEAD:)HE MUST GO "NO MIKE FOR MARCO MIDDLE" GO TO LELY, OOPS.. OH YOU CAN'T GO THERE EITHER....

Here is some video that you can look at.Keep in mind this is not a one time occurrence.This is to my knowledge the only time it was recorded.

Mike is a good person and an outstanding coach and mentor for the youth and children of Marco Island.It has been my opinion that he should remain the coach,as the positives he brings by far outweigh this small mistake he made to a kid who was being disrespectful.

All of the aforementioned adults in this story know my son and have knowledge of the current situation that our family is going through regarding his situation at Lely High School.Rodger Lalonde,NDN's Tom Hanson and other media professionals also know about this situation.

A decision is to be made this week by the Collier County School Board regarding this.I am hoping this will be based on the facts as to what has happened through the course of the year.
I am unsure of what will be decided as I was told in my last conversation will the investigator that everyone was entitled to their opinion as to what has happened.

As an investigator I feel that others opinions should not factor into the case,only facts.These are very serious charges and we want the facts to determine the outcome of this.This investigation has been ongoing for over a month now and we are waiting for the final decision to be announced .

Written on Marco woman crashes into two Massachusetts police cruisers :

I thought they saved their bad driving habits for down here. The worst place to drive is in Pelican Bay,in season at about 9 pm,when the philharmonic gets out.Only half the drivers have their lights on.I'm not kidding.I have seen this many times.

Written on Dog bites Marco youth in the park:

Yeah,you tell that darn SUNTAN.I'm so rigid that I
did not detect any sarcasm in his post either.

Written on Canine Cove to offer newest dog romp in Collier:

Councilman Wayne Waldack asked why there wasn’t a fee and registration required to make the park a profit center.

Is this guy for real? A profit center from a dog park.How about fiscal responsibility.All I see is this city spending more and more,constantly paying
the experts from afar to see how they can spend our money.Running low,we will just raise taxes.Pretty soon this island will be composed of the very wealthy and city employees.
