I think these coaches within the public leauge have to big of EGO's and need to be held more accountable for the actions of their players. I have seen Smith in the past act on the immaturity of his players and has held them accountable. But more then anything I always see him stirring the pot when it comes to playing Morgan Park, or any other rivals within the public leauge. It's bad enough with the violence taking place within the city.
agreed. the video I watched on the chicago tribune website was pretty telling. there was a lot of emotional players and coaches running around and the 2 head coaches just fed into it, instead of taking the reigns and squashing it, imo.

I wasn't there, but that is what I saw from both sides from that video.
