q- Page B-2 - Mason County Journal - Thursday, Nov. 6, 2014 FLY ON THE SIDELINE ame commen uring my six years of sports reporting, I've talked to three kinds of coaches. There's Mr. Positive, who only wants to talk about the good things his team accom- plished in a game, even if it lost most recently 80-0. Then there's Mrs. Nega- tive. This coach will, even after a victory, focus only on everything her team did wrong. No error is too small to mention. The final type of coach is the elusive Mr. Balanced. This coach will give the posi- tive highlights of games, but will also share where im- provements need to happen. They will glow with pride when their team wins, but also honestly as- sess what went wrong when it loses. I've also By EMILY spoken with HANSON parents and fans. This group falls mostly into two categories. Some fans are out for an- swers. "If we played well and improvements are happen- ing, why aren't we winning?" they'll ask. This sometimes translates to: "That coach doesn't know what he's do- ing." The other set of fans smile when the team wins, com- miserates when it loses and then asks: "Why is the coach so negative? There must be something nice to say!" It's a tough line to tread. Although I've never been a coach, I do have seven sisters. In other words, I consider myself fairly expe- rienced in how to break the truth to people. And as a person who struggles when it comes to sugar-coating the truth, I understand the coaches' dif- ficulties with it. There are some truths that some parents, fans and players might not want to accept. There are some truths that seine parents, fans aad players might not want te accept, The first is that, some- thing to say. times when your team wins, Do some coaches need to it's less because it won and be a bit more positive?
