An Ode to Footy Coaches
They Teach the game to kids of all ages Putting up with crying kids And their parents’ rages
Through all the winter weather, rain and wind and cold The coach tries out new ideas- some of them quite bold If they work, he’s a genius, brilliant and a gun If they don’t he gets shafted as just another bum
The coach cannot please everyone the player, even mum or dad But he makes important calls and often ends up sad He’s given his all for your kids as well as mine He’s knocked back just being a "gunna" and given his time
Sometimes the ball bounces for you and sometimes not Sometimes the players remember game plans but most they forgot Of Course the coach will be held to blame and cop all the flak But it’s him that will turn up next season and have another crack
So if you don’t like the coach and the way he puts the test Why don’t you have a go yourself and see if you’re the best You’ll see that it’s a game of inches deciding win or lose So instead of whining and complaining try walking in the coach’s shoes.
