  1. I do agree with him, kids nowadays get a lot more slack and are pampered a lot more. They try to make everything about them, it is their way or no way at all and it is annoying.

  2. I don’t like the handshake line because things like fights happen and it’s best just to go to the locker room and go home.

  3. I agree with the coach. They should handle this situation but not eliminate the hand shakes for people who don’t have a good sportsmanship.
