Deal with It is apparently not reading my comments, or Wendy's for that matter. When you state something so incredulous as "no one is berating him", you certainly aren't exhibiting intelligence or reading comprehension. "No one is berating him"? Oh really? Would you like us to prepare a summary of the personal, vile, nasty comments directed at Coach Cohen contained on this very forum? Apparently your browser isn't picking up such innocuous comments such as "that putz" from some of your fellow upstanding, upscale and highly educated Chathamites. Coach Cohen remains a NJ HS Hockey Hall of Fame, Charter Member. God, I guess you can only feel pity for these viscious, classless parents living vicariously through their kids and imagining CHS as the Don Bosco of HS Hockey! Their values and priorities are quite sick.
