The title of a Yahoo! article released on October 5, 2012 is “Florida Cheerleader Coach Fired for Alleged Pay-to-Play Scheme” (Web-site/URL: http://gma.yahoo.com/florida-cheerleader-coach-fired-alleged-pay-play-scheme-120435803–abc-news-topstories.html).
“Parents at a high school in Parkland, Fla., have accused an embattled substitute teacher and former cheerleader coach of implementing a pay-to-play scheme that cost them thousands of dollars, which the woman denies”.
“In a complex tangle of allegations that began last year (2011), the parents of several cheerleaders at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School say Melissa Prochila not only bullied their daughters, but MASTERMINDED A PAY-TO=PLAY SYSTEM in which a child’s spot on the team came at a price”.
“Prochila told ABC News” “”[I] feel like MY WORLD IS SHATTERING“.
“Joanne Gavin, a parent of one of the cheerleaders at the Broward County school, says there was no accounting for the $9,000 in cash that was supposedly meant for external coaches and out-of-town trips for the squad”. “I’d like to know where THE MONEY is. I’d like to have a booster club meeting. WHAT ARE WE PAYING FOR? What do we continue to pay for? I’m NOT a bully coach. The money is EASY to prove. There are RECEIPTS for everything. THAT’S THE EASIEST PART. They can say a number (and) WE CAN SHOW YOU EVERY RECEIPT FOR EVERYTHING. That’s the easy part of this. Am I SATISFIED? Am I HAPPY?IT SHOULD HAVE NEVER GOTTEN THIS FAR” obviously.
Finally, “Prochila says that she DOES NOT KNOW what she could have possibly done to make some parents so angry”. “I DON’T KNOW,”
So, perhaps we should take a page out of HONG KONG culture which suggests that people who work in HAIR SALONS as well as BEAUTY & MASSAGE PARLORS MAY BE PROSTITUTES? We can now add CHEERLEADING COACH to this list now because WE HAVE A REAL CASE NOW. The most important concern however is that THIS LADY IS STILL BEING ALLOWED TO TEACH. So we have to wonder IF Melissa Prochila will take advantage of students in that role as well. We all remember the RICHARD HOOKER/JORDAN POWERS story (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5DIObxwpRk&feature=relmfu). This is an ideal story for ABC‘s CHRIS CUOMO,“20/20” Anchor, ABC‘s TERRY MORAN, “Nightline” Anchor or ABC‘s Chief Investigative Correspondent BRIAN ROSS. This cheerleading squad is appropriately named MEAN GIRLS. This is yet another example of a woman who IS NOT sympathetic and cuddly which means, again, that we need to adjust our EXPECTATIONS of women. Again, we need to SERIOUSLY do away with the ANCIENT CHINESE belief that women should just sit around and please their husbands/boyfriends and then DEMAND to be pleased and then flip out when something goes wrong/DOESN’T go the way they want. “demanding”, of course, is a fundamental characteristic of “Difficult People” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI) and this is a way that rational people certainly WOULD NOT/DO NOT want to act.
