Profanity Pays

I am the DAMN law

I am the DAMN law

In an effort to create a more Singapore type atmosphere, Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer is implementing the no potty-mouth rule while on the job. This means coaches and staff cannot say any vulgar or profane words in front of other coaches, staff, and especially players during meetings, practices, workouts, etc.

It’s not enough for his staff to say, “yes sir, I accept your dumba$$ rule,” rather he is going to levy fines. The fines can range anywhere from $10, $20, and $50 dollars.

When asked about it, Coach Beamer stated, “It’s just simply trying to do things the right way,” “We’re supposed to be setting the example for our players here at Virginia Tech and if we, as coaches, make a conscious effort to try and always conduct ourselves professionally, I hope our players will see that and follow along. Also, we have accountability in this program. I personally don’t like to hear profanity and since we’re all college graduates on this staff, I’m confident we can come up with more suitable terms to communicate with. Bottom line, the football field is our workplace, our job, and just like at any other working environment, you want that to be as professional as possible. It’s something that happens rarely (profanity), but I’ve drawn attention to it because I’d like for it not to happen at all.”

The Matador thinks this is a brilliant f&%#ing idea.

    Maybe this policy would have straightened Vick out … Reckon?

    Vick was a basket case, he needed more than just soap in his mouth.

    Sh*t is only worth $20. if he used multiple curse words in the same sentence, then it would jump up to $50.

    Looks like Beamer is cursing in the picture. “Ref!!! he was roughing the Sh*t out of the kicker!!!!”

    That would be $50 please.

    Is the invisible hand of Jerry Falwell somewhere in this? I though this was Va. Tech, not Liberty Univ.

    Ever read Bud Foster’s lips on the sideline? He’ll owe Beamer plenty after the Bama game!

    Where do all the proceeds go? I can see a lot of cash building up throughout the season. I also want to see how Beamer handles himself when the ref makes a bad call or Taylor throws a bad INT.

    Good for Frank Beamer and VaTech.

    Very often coaches and staffs talk about instilling discipline and character in their players without setting an example. This is how coach Beamer wants to encourage discipline (and I agree players shouldn’t have to be subjected to cursing if that’s not part of their personal code)–and congrats to him and his staff for walking the talk.

    Beamer runs a good program. These kids need direction and a father figure. Good move coach!
