    Did you read the whole story? That guy might be a particularly big jerk, but the whole system seems to be set up to function that way. Really sad, tbh.

    I did read the whole story. I would need you to elaborate on what you mean, bc the story did not indict the system as far as I could tell.

    Most of the story isn't about that one coach. It uses him as a vehicle to discuss the way these prep schools take advantage of the rules regarding international players--or perhaps more accurately, how the rules seem designed to exploit the players. Seems like it's definitely critiquing the system.

    Well, the part of the story that was really alarming was that this wasn't a real school, but a front created by the coach so that he could manipulate players. I didn't see any reference in the story to other fake schools...? Did I miss that?
