"What do you think of that?" he asked.
I'll tell you what I think of that. You're a couple of f#$kers who so totally f#$ked up last year's management and are now being found out that you're trying to cover your asses.
I told him I was offended. I told him it was reprehensible how the money situation was mishandled last year. And I said no way.
So he said, "So you prefer to be the sole manager?"
And I said I wasn't saying that.
"The reason we were excited the two of you would be co-managers is we knew a lot of the tasks that weren't done last year would be done," he said.
"But your excitement has waned," I said.
And then I said, "You know what, if the coach gets to dictate who is in what position, then you've made it clear what you want."
I stood up and walked out. I stopped over to talk to one of the league pooh-bahs, and I told her what had just transpired and that I had essentially told them to "F#$k off."
My former co-manager called and said the league president wanted to talk to me and wanted us to continue to be co-managers and would I please, please, please come back.
I ranted for awhile, calling the coach and last year's manager/treasurer co-conspirers who got busted. And I said the league president was clearly complicit. And under no circumstances would I do it.
I know the real reason this happened. I was a whistleblower, going over the coach's head to get the league to intervene regarding the money from two years ago which was never spent and is now a huge bone of contention among the parents.
This? This is a group of nine-year-old boys who want to play soccer. With totally f#$ked-up parents.
I told Pete I wanted to go back and grab the registration form and not go through with this.
But I have a nearly-nine-year-old boy who wants to play soccer.
