Stahl: Best Good Old Boy

Matt Westerhold
Mar 23, 2010

City commissioner Craig Stahl was almost breathless when he read a letter to commission Monday from Erie County Prosecutor Kevin Baxter refuting the importance of another letter Baxter sent last week to Don Icsman and Matt Kline that stated the Murman report contained factual inaccuracies.

The way Stahl embraced Baxter's denial of his earlier admission that Murman got the "details" wrong was so sweet. Kevin must have taken all weekend to figure out how to word that second letter. Baxter had just finished writing it a half-hour before the commission meeting, Craig said. And Craig was just so excited to be the chosen messenger. He read it as if it were a letter from the Pope.

"Congratulations on being Kevin's water boy," I told Stahl after the public meeting ended.

"Maybe I am being his water boy," Stahl responded after some additional chiding.

Yeah Craig, that's exactly what you were when you delivered Baxter's second "cover your (behind)" CYA letter in less that a week.

It's just too bad you didn't have any time to address the Darden report, which was actually researched and thoughtful. While you encourage and celebrate Baxter's attempts to manipulate the process for Party and power, Darden actually did the work you should be doing: Digging for the truth.

But you were too busy trying to be the best Good Old Boy you could be to actually pay attention to "details."

I dont think he is any kind of coach!

The spread is an offense in itself . It has particular running plays that go with particular passes. You just cant throw a play out and hope it works you have to know how to coach it . It might have helped if the staff went to clinics or VISITED a college that ran the spread . IF YOU DON'T MEET in the off season YOU CAN'T Expect a new offense to just happen! !

Listen i am sure they know how to run it, we are talking about a coaching staff who is smart and capable of running a different style of offense. I feel like alot of people think the pirate coaching staff is a bunch of morons, think what you will but all those guys are hard working and put their best effort into the weeks game. Its a matter of those boys doing the rest. I am beating a dead horse because right now the pirates are doing about 10% of their jobs out their and its showing.

Smart and capable come again birdman . THEY spent little time on game planing , infact I saw 2 of them the past weeks at the browns game . They dont watch film and THEY have no idea how to run the spread . End of comment !

There seems to be a consistent thread about Perkins football stories. Did one of you apply for the job and not get it? Ever heard of sour grapes? Week after week somebody out there is complaining about the Perkins coaching staff. Can you ever write something positive? And what the heck is wrong with kids going to the Browns game? Who the heck are you to tell the coach when to schedule practices?

Margaretta will never have a quality team with Wilson around. He has so much wasted talent on the side line watching the game in their uniform. Once again you see the Supers kid in while others could do the job better. Or let's just call the Polar Bears the Zahel show again this year being as Wilson thinks they should be the only ball handlers of his games for the past few years! GET RID OF WILSON

You must have forgotten the 2 interceptions deep in Blue Streak territory that led to 14 of those points. That put the "D" with their backs to the wall. It was a TEAM loss!

This is a nice article, but some of the stats are wrong. Also Sandusky did not beat the clock in the first half. As a matter of fact they would not have scored if it were not for the officials.

BRAUSCH PLAYED HIS SON FRIDAY AGAINST OAK HARBOR IN THE 2ND HALF A FRESHMAN!!!! JON SUITOR ONE OF THE BEST EVER AT PERKINS DID NOT EVEN PLAY AS A FRESHMAN. ARE THE PIRATES THIS BAD OR DOES THE COACH HAVE A HIDDEN AGENDA ?

What happen to train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they should not depart from it.
Instead of down talking them, teach them, talk to them, help them, motivate them, and lean them towards a positive attitude whether they win or lose.
But I guess thats too much like doing the right thing?
These young men are doing a wonderful job, just going to practice and coming out on the field on game day.
It hurts my soul that you can put down these young men that are trying to do the right thing.
Before you leave a comment,
Remember you all were kids yourself.
What did you do back then? Was your defense up to par, did you win at everything you did?
To the Sandusky High Football Team, many of us are proud of you.
Stay focus, and continue to give it your all! Its not about winning, its about your learning lessons to victory!

The fumble recovery in the first quarter was scooped and scored by number 26 Reckner not number 28 Spahr.

Dear coach Wilson:
Do what is best for the team and the program and step down. Hand the position over to one of your assistants.

Thank you, Perkins Lady Tennis, for making us all proud to be Pirates!

now how about modeling it for them? Coach Obergefell can't be the only one with character, integrity, and class for these young men. He's only one man...
