Texas cop delays Texans RB Moats at hospital as mother-in-law dies

After watching the police car video, I believe Mr. Moats did exhibit a good level of self control even during what I believe was a racially motivated behavior by the Texas Cop who I believe was blinded by his lack of love for colored individuals...

I am white, and grew up in Texas...but when I decided to date a very good looking black lady, that is when I realized how the white Texas community treats blacks, specifically in Dallas, TX...I don't need to go into details, but the racial discrimination was most evident in restaurants, and night clubs...I was even approached by two white police officers inside a patrol car, when my then black girlfriend and I were in my vehicle chatting parked in front of her home, in her black community, when I rolled my window down the cops proceeded to tell me that 'if I was you, I would leave this area, it is not a safe neighborhood'...

But as far as minority or racial discrimination, Minnesota a state where I happened to live for a number of years, is even worse than Texas...and I thought Texas was bad...

It is just another fact of life for non-white, and non-native born people living in Texas, Minnesota, and such similar states in this country of ours.

I feel sorry for Mr. Moats and his family, and I can personally state that if this happened to me, I possibly might not have been able to control myself as well as Mr. Moats did, because I was just in Dallas a month ago, in a similar circumstance, my mother suffered bleeding in her brain, and was in an ICU in a local hospital in Dallas, and she was also potentially in a state where she might have lost her life, like Mr. Moats' mother-in-law, but in my case, my mother survived...and I was fortunate to not have to speed to the hospital like Mr. Moats did...

That is a great story, allow me to replace the title of this story which is "A fire-breathing dragon lives in my garage" with "The widely accepted standard kicking theory that everyone never questions", now go back and read the story again and each time it refers to the dragon, replace it with the 'standard kicking theory'...and now the story will apply beautifully.

I wish it was that simple...

Let's assume I can improve a young soccer player's touch on the ball in less than a month...

Let's assume those players on the team start winning every game in their league's schedule...

Let's assume those players then win their next scheduled tournament...

After their success, I leave that team as their hired technical trainer, because my research is done...

Now another coach comes in after me, and he sees everyone kicking the soccer ball totally different from what he is used to, and as we all know he is used to that famous old standard theory of leaning over the ball with your chest, support foot right next to the ball, he forces the kids to change back to that old standard, and by sitting the ones who do not want to change on the bench, till they conform, because who wants to sit on the bench...

This has happened to most of the players who improved with my soccer kick...they are forced by their next coach after I leave the team to conform back to the old you tell me how could they become the proud owners of a World Cup, obviously we have not won that cup yet...

So the only way I can guarantee this change to happen and to be maintained, is to create my own team that I can keep training for longer than a month or a couple of months, but up to year, and more...Without allowing anyone to interfere with their daily training using my program, this team we will blow everyone off the field by scoring goals and basically outperforming their opponents, from game to game, to after a few years of this type of performance that greed for money, power, and domination will take over my opponents, and since my opponents won't be able to defeat me on the soccer field by using their old standards, they will be forced to either accept my training program, or come up with something better than what I have, to defeat me. I hope if they do come up with something better, it will be something under the umbrella of the rules of soccer, meaning not more increase in violence on the field...

So without my own facility, I won't be able to make any sustaining changes...

For example, I gave some tips to a professional soccer player who I found training one day at an indoor facility in Dallas, TX...he was from Brazil, so I watched him for a few minutes, and I was able realize what he was trying to improve was lateral accuracy in his shooting. I decided to approach him and ask him if he would be interested in any tips to help him with his effort, and I was surprised that he said yes. So after showing and demonstrating to him my kicking process and the principals of physics of the ball that it is based on, and how to use this approach to control lateral direction and accuracy of the ball, he actually tried it, and it worked for him first try. After a year or so, we met up again, and I asked him if he was still implementing my kicking technique in his game, and he said yes, but what was interesting is that he said when he tried to explain to his professional coach in Dallas this new technique, the coach just couldn't understand it...can you guess the nationality of this coach...yes...he was from England...and as we all know, the English are staunch believers in standards, and they hate change. So even though the Brazilian player understood it and used it, he could not convey the kicking process to him, because if you don't have an open is like talking to a wall.

Just imagine coaching over 43 soccer teams which was all part of my research and each time being able to convince the team to train using my training program, believe me, this was not a simple task. Because after the kids went home that day after I introduced the new theory to them, I had to skillfully negotiate the immediate attacks from some parents who had some coaching background or were from a specific country and were hung up on the old standards, they would question what I was doing, and so they should. It was no easy task to console them so they would not hinder my team's progress by pulling their child off the team, but after they saw their child's level of improvement go up...most of them accepted the new training program, why shouldn't they, their kids were also winning every game.

Your are corrrect...this actual thread was about a guy who said soccer is running America into the ground...which in itself is an odd statment, but believe it or not this guy did have some actual valid points in the body of his article in reference to soccer, so it was a good link to a sports article to introduce a discussion on.

What is trutfully running America into the ground is greed, greed, and greed.

Just look at history of great civilizations that ended up disintergrating and always comes back to greed.

Greed for money, power, and domination.

My use of the meant to say I can keep going, but I'll stop here.

If it annoys you my apology...

Many venture capitlists never played soccer in their lives, so they wouldn't give a damn about my new discoveries.

So I try to focus my comments withn sport oriented forums, hoping a venture capitalist is a member of such a site.

There, I used two dots, or periods, just for you. This third and fourth period is just a bonus gift to you.:)

Plus I have testimonials of past soccer students who have had success with the kick, etc., but the video was shot by me, and it is not the most professional level type videos...I used a good digital camera, but I didn't have a mic boom, so the volume level compared to the noise level is not good, etc.,, but you can hear it, but still it is not what I need to walk into an office and do a truly professional presentation...

Overall, with testimonials from my past students, including my digital animation, and actual video demonstration of the kick, and with all of the documented research I have done, nothing beats bringing a video of a game with your player or team in it, where they are utilizing the skill that you are trying to say you can bring to the club...and that I believe is the only way I can really market having a team that performs the new kick in their passing and finishing, and winning a majority of their games over and over again...consistently.

I wish I had a camera crew following me during all of my past coaching of players and even during my own games after I thought myself the technique, where great performances occurred on the field in such games and many victorious tournaments using my kick...but unfortunately my research was silent and in the background, now this fact is haunting me.

But it is not just the kick that I have developed, I have also done research in what is the best way to give a player the highest level of endurance possible from a cardiovascular conditioning perspective without having to run long distance type training, which some of you might know can create havoc on the knees and ankles when training is done on bad turf, etc, and I have developed other types of athletic training which minimize injury, and maximizes on the field movement efficiency for both the field players and the goalkeeper...I have new training for the goalkeeper that will totally minimize any pain associated with constant falling to the ground, took my younger brother, and professional goalkeeper himself, years to finally accept one of my goalkeeper training he is finally utilizing it in his daily goalkeeper training program, because he sees its it is an overall new developmental training program with many facets to it, not just the kick, even though the kick in soccer is obviously the most important facet of the game.

Sorry for the long is hard to put it all into one word, like soccer.

I thought I already answered that issue...what do you thing my 30 years of research has been about...coaching and training all ages group soccer players, and both sexes...and that is how I insured my new theory works, because I was able to implement it over and over again, and it worked each time.

I have coached and/or techincally trained youth, college, and even individual professionals here in the USA, Canada, and Spain...during those 30 years...aside from playing the game itself.

After consulting with experts with PhD's in Biomechanics, Physics, etc., and doing research inside human athletic research labs, where I was able to verify data by measure, etc....which also proved my new athletic movements that I discovered...only then did I publicly try and market it, but as you can see it has been a battle up the hill all the way...

My bar is not set too high, but in order to properly market something you do need some investment capital...and that is what I have been trying to raise...and continue to do so...

I would love to party with you, but in my last visit to Dallas I was not in much of a party mood, because my mother had sudden bleeding in her brain, and no one knew if she would survive, but thanks to God she did, she is presently in a 24 hour nursing facility right now going through rehab...

In your profile you state that you follow sports in the Dalls/Ft. Worth area in North Texas...please explain this to me.

As you know there is a lot of heated soccer competition in Texas, like who has the best soccer club, who is the best soccer coach, etc., coaches and clubs have even sued in each other over soccer related issues...

In the summer of 2007 I attended a coaching license "C" school here in s. California at the Home Depot Center, to upgrade it from my National 'D' License...during the application process I was trying to get some official proof of my soccer playing and coaching experience, so when it came time to get such documents from Texas, where I grew up playing soccer as a youth, then high school, and then at the University level...I contacted the North Texas Soccer Association, and some other local associations where I was a 'registered' coach and player for many years, to get them to send me a letter with the official letterhead stating that fact, but all of the assocations refused, without giving me a reason, accept that they would have to go to their archives, and they were in storage, so I came back and said I could send you scanned documents I have kept, like my coaching and playing registration documents with their letterhead, to verify the dates of my soccer participation, and even after sending them those documents, they never sent me one letter to me...and they knew who I was personally, and they also knew my family personally, since we had the first soccer camps in North Texas in 1970, etc...but they would not lift a finger to type something out for sad is that. Talk about rivalry...compared to one phone call I made to Madrid, Spain to their national soccer assocation, and in a 3 days I had an official letter from them that arrived in my mailbox of which teams I signed for when I played soccer there back in the 1980's...

Unlike Texas, the soccer associations here in California had no problem verifying my soccer playing and coaching activities here in this state...

Let's be honest, soccer creates a lot of heavy duty competition in all levels, and I am sure it is the same in most sports.

But if we stand back from all of that crap for just a second, the thing that shines the most is the beauty of the sport itself...

You are right, but what does it hurt once in a while to ask for funding or donations for my cause...

I was tempted to put my digital animation videos of my new kicking approach out on YouTube, etc., but my fears are that someone who has some brains will take the idea and attempt to make the instructional video or book and state that they discovered it...then I will have to get an attorney, and loose my money to defend my right to the discovery, and how do you prove you discovered a specific movement of a body part?

Any type of a professional production that I would love to do for an instructional video, which obviously requires upfront funding, that I don't have right now, and again we are talking 300-500,000 plus dollars...

I have been searching for a coach agent, but I have not been able to find one, at least one that is trustworthy...I have had three entities e-mail me stating they can get me into the national team of China, a club in India, and now recently a club in Denmark, all ended up to be scammers. I am 48 years old and I believe I still have the athletic ability to demonstrate my kick to be able to teach it properly, and as I get older, that ability will diminish I am sure, unless I have a facility where I can constantly train, and we come back to square one, how do I get my own facility...

Just a few months ago I handed Don Graber, who was one of the speakers invited to talk about sports organization and operation at a local university here is southern California, my Soccerkick, Inc. business card, telling him I have a solution in regards to develop talented soccer players here in the USA(because during his speed that evening he specifically stated that one area the MLS needs to improve, and USA soccer in general, is the development of talented soccer players)...has he or anyone from his MLS called me, of course not, why should he, I don't have a team that I can bring to the table to show him what I am talking about, but at least give me a call to discuss if we could setup some type of a test where I can take a handful of players, put them through my training program, and then he can have his MLS development staff assess the power or lack of, of my developmental training program...

I offered my services a finishing consultant to Bruce Arena, the new coach of LA Galaxy, and about a few months ago, I got an official response from him, thanking me for my interest to help out, but that he already had a full coaching staff, and wished me luck in my endeavors...

I have not had the opportunity to speak to Bob Bradley, the head coach of the US Men's National team, to see if would be interested in my finishing consulting services for his team...

But I am not giving up...there is got to be someone out there who feels that the United States should have already won a World Cup long time ago; especially, with all the great athletes and resources we have here, there is no excuse for not bringing the World Cup trophy to this country.

We just need an extra edge on the soccer field, and I have the solution for that extra edge, convincing others of that, has been my biggest challenge to date.

My main question is, why is everyone afraid of giving me a chance to prove what I say I have done, and can do for them? My training program can make a difference in a soccer players kicking abiity in just one week...but yet LA Galaxy, Chivas USA, etc., are not willing to give me that opportunity, and of all teams they need it the most.

I still believe that on one of the doors I will knock on next, will be the entity that is going to give me that opportunity.

Well tommytrump, since your profile states that you lived in Canada, I have an interesting story to share with you...

I was a trying out for Montreal Manic, a soccer pro franchise from the old NASL days located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in mid 1980's, and after a recent recovery from a soccer injury that I incurred during pre-season training there and playing in the sweeper position, I managed to organize my defense to prevent the opponent from scoring one goal, it was a game of the Manic Reserve team vs a selection team of the best players in Quebec, and we won...

Oh how about the time when I was 15 years old and my club team called the Pirates located in Dallas, TX leased an expanded van after painting houses for a summer to raise the money for the trip, and we drove up to Toronto, Canada, and entered ourselves in the Robbie Tournament there, in the senior youth division, and we managed to defeat some top teams from Canada, and the USA to bring home the trophy...

Just wanted to share a factoid with you that happened in Canada, and that is no Bullshit.

I love making my statements on the soccer field, here on the Internet you can say anything, but can you walk the talk.

What personal gain do I have in raising awareness to the lack of soccer development here in the United States, and the World's soccer development overall?

I have a non-profit soccer charitable organization called Soccerkick, in between the lines "non-profit"...for which I am asking for donations in respect to funding or land/bldg type donations for my first training what possible gain would I get from this, only the fact that I am attempting to complete the mission of this organization.

Just like you said, it is not your forum, and you don't make the rules here, or have the authority to enforce let's assume you did, what would you do?

I can only assume some of you do like the game called soccer, football, or if someone like myself after many years of conducting proper scientific research found out that many of today's soccer standards are not based on any proper scientific research, and attempts to share that on this particular forum, or any other forum, there is always going to be a backlash of attacks, that is human nature, humans hate to change after they fall into a comfort factor...I understand that extremely well, but my mission is to continue to spread the word, and I will continue to do so...regardless if you believe that I am being taken seriously or not that is just your one man opinion...I am up for the challenge, but so far no one has been able to come back with a differing view without being aggressive...what I would enjoy is to have a mutual and friendly online discussion, even though we may have differing opinions...that part of online discourse I can't control, but I am hoping I can come across a truly educated individual in sports research, who would be willing to discuss this topic in a non-aggressive format.

This game will evolve with me or without me...but I am passionate about making statements that this game can improve beyond what most people believe that it can...because I have been there and done that, so why not give soccer players out there a chance to get this information into their hands to give them the opportunity to experience the true potential passion of this game, because the standard soccer developmental academia will not give them this information, they are not aware of it as of how could they...instead most soccer players continue to battle the art of mastering the soccer ball without the proper knowledge to achieve that what is wrong with my efforts to share that with them, if I know such information exists out there to help them?

I admit that I make remarks in order to spark discussion, but my statements don't include any type of lies, or hoaxes, or bs, or self promotion...only to benefit the growth of the game itself.

I can be just as aggressive, self indulging, or as ignorant as any of the comments here or any other you know words taken too seriously can be very damaging if one allows them to...but aside from sparking discussion on a topic, I always assume I can have a friendly, and fun discussion, without resorting to such negative discourse...but if anyone of you truly do surf the Internet out there, you can see that aggressive dialogue, seems to be the is always some group, trying to isolate one individual or another group of individuals into a battle of words...till those words turn into threats and four letter words. Why that is, I don't know, I don't think even trained psychologists know...aside from maybe our cave ancestors mentality, if you weren't born in our cave, you don't belong here, so the cave people residing in a cave next to them, would be considered would think we graduated passed such limited thinking, but sometimes I truly wonder.

There are many team and individual type sports out there, that participants can enjoy playing, and fans can enjoy watching. I think that is a good thing. Each of those sports were created for a reason, and have evolved according to the efforts of the people participating in them, some put more effort into it than others, but each sport has grown and evolved on its own, and will continue to do so, as we humans do ourselves. But there have always been growing pains, and that is natural.

All I am attempting to do is to raise awareness in the reality of an improved development of the sport called soccer, and I hope to find someone out there who believes in my message to join me and my efforts to improve this game and take it to another higher level...and do this now, not in 5, 10, or 20 years.

This comment is a short summary of what I am trying to doso I am curious as to how many more aggressive comments that this comment will generate, or maybe to my surprise, there might be some intelligent non-aggressive comment responses. I do have a basic faith in the goodness of humanity, even though it might be just a small needle in a haystack, that needle is the hope to our survival

I said be gentle...

I have never read more bs(that's what boots are for)...well I take that back, most your guys comments are bs...but you already know that. I thought I would see more creative comments, but I am extremely disappointed in you guys, you let me down.

Soccer/football is the best sport in the world...and it has a lot of room to improve...

Soccer is one of the oldest team games in the world...and hopefully it will continue to be so...

Soccer gave birth to rugby, and rugby gave birth to American football...

All sports have their purpose, otherwise they would not exist, I just prefer soccer...I have played most of the team sports, and I enjoyed all of them, except I found soccer to be the most challenging...

There are no written manuals on soccer that will enlighten you to see what I see as far as the future for soccer...the only way you can envision the true potential of this game, is to stop for a second, and think...

You can attempt to attack me verbally as much as you like, but that shows you own frustrations with your own limitations...that is something you have to deal with on you own.
