There's a story that didn't make it into Linda Flanagan's book, but it's so appalling she has to tell me about it. It's about a family in her town whose son was on the "A" team at the local soccer club one year but placed on the "B" team the next. He was humiliated; his parents were livid. So livid that the father, who worked in a higher position at the same firm as the coach, had the coach transferred overseas.
