We just came home from our afternoon of football. difficult child plays in a very low key league, once a week practice and then 1 hour of practice before the 1 hour game. It is supposed to be fun and instructional equal play. Well today certainly wasn't equal play for difficult child. I think he got about 10 minutes maybe 12 out of the hour. There are only 11 boys on the team and 8 on the field at a time. I did mention something the guy who runs the program. I actually asked him if the equal play should be the same as last season, since we moved up a level. He said it was and said he would send out a generic email to all the coaches. What I am most ticked about is my parents. They were putting the blame on difficult child. Saying if he was more excited about playing then he would play. Well, difficult child hardly shows any emotion. He is pretty flat most of the time. It is just who he is. I said it is the coaches responsibility to rotate the boys no matter the "excitement" level of the boy. Especially with difficult child not being in the game he won't be engaged in the game. Not certain how to go about this. It was the first game hopefully the coaches will get better. Thanks for listening.
