Soccer Coach's E-mail Ends In His Resignation

A Massachusetts youth soccer coach told parents in an e-mail his team of 6- and 7-year-old girls would be known as "Green Death," encouraged them to feed their daughters "undercooked red meat" and said "losing is for losers."

Coach Michael Kinahan has since resigned from the Scituate Youth Soccer League. He says he was joking in last week's season-opening e-mail.

League official Chris Park tells the Patriot Ledger of Quincy that Kinahan has a "wry, sarcastic" sense of humor and some parents understood the e-mail's tone. But others didn't and complained.

Kinahan also wrote he would heckle referees, expected players to "bleed a little" and wanted parents to cheer, not sit on the sidelines "sipping mocha-latte-half-caf-chinos."
