|Kolich will take retribution against our children|

Re: Player Coach Dispute:
There is a lot of truth to what Mr. Hamzeh says. There are
many parents that would like to say what they really feel, but
are afraid because we know Mr. Kolich will take retribution against
our children. The letter written by Cahill and Giordano was a
bunch of garbage. Sure your child is treated fairly if your name
is Cahill or Giordano, but there are plenty of kids out there
This entire soccer league is getting ridiculous. I would like
to see Ms. McPhearson send out a survey to the parents and players
on the team and anonymously get the replies. If the town council
is as concerned as she says they are, then they should dig deeper
and they will find that there are many unhappy parents and players.
We are just afraid that if we speak up and say
Soccer is becoming more and more popular every year. It would be a shame if Rutherford can't keep up with our neighboring towns with our soccer program because of people being afraid of Mr. Kolich. Rutherford needs to keep moving forward with our soccer programs and continue to progress. By allowing Mr. Kolich to continue to dictate and making himself clear that you are either with him or you don't play, will only push the soccer program back a decade.
As for Mr. Klunk, the only way I can rationalize what he is doing is to say that the more authority he gives Mr. Koilch, the less work he has to do. He can just sit back and let Mr. Kolich do all the decision making. After all, isn't he in a civil service job? Could we even fire him if we wanted to?
The Rutherford council needs to take a serious look at what is going on in the recreation department, especially with soccer.
Regarding the Rules: Look at
How can you set rules and regulations to be enforced in the middle of the season? How can you tell paents that they must sign and return by January 30th? OR WHAT?? If you don't sign, your child will not be allowed to play?
I think the town council should form a committee that is unbiased. Let them decide who should be president. There should also be a board appointed and not hand picked by Mr. Kolich. If he rules and picks the board, what is the sense of even having a board? It's obvious that certain people will do anything to guarantee their child a spot on the team, even if it means losing long time freindships.
Well Ms. McPhearson, do you still want to help??
