Paul Gallegos is not another Bobby Knight.

I saw Paul Gallegos coaching the Quality Body 3rd and 4th Grade girls Hoopsters basketball team with Doug Frey. He really did a good job with his team. I like his style of encouragement over yelling. He was always clapping and quietly signally his girls where to stand. They beat a bigger Tetrault team by passing better and hustling. I hope Paul and Joan took Daughter Sofia and the rest of the team out for pizza afterwards.

There is no reason, NONE, to be yelling at kids while coaching them. Maybe at the Varsity level at high school. Community sports should be fun, and not the seventh game of the NBA Finals. PG was one of the good guys. I get the felling Rose might disagree.

I bet Salzman and Dr.Ken were feeding Paul his material.

Rose is disgusting and filthy!

Anyone who has actually met with, or talked to Paul know what an wonderful human being he is.

Just because you don't agree with someone's politics, does not mean they are a bad person, but people like Rose can not separate the two.

Rose is very mean spirited, small minded and frankly, a very unhappy person. It is sad really.

I hear Paul is a great coach.

JEEZUSSS!

My comment about Rose was meant to be on the lighter side.

I am sure you all have your reasons for disliking Rose, but I was just covering my bases because she seems to respond to every blog post about Paul.

I thought I was being funny, and I did not wish to invite the venom with the nerve I hit.

I know that Paul also coaches soccer. I have coached enough years to know how thankless it can be. It is just good to see people doing good deeds and should be given kudos for contributing to their community. No one could argue that.

Paul is also not Jack McCoy

Well I have to disagree with you folks. My son plays little league and from what I have seen of Gallegos at these games, well I just wish he'd stop showing up.

A rather nasty person.

10:15am-I wrote what I have seen as a eye witness. You have slandered him anonymously. Brave.

I have had good coaches and bad. Paul looks like one of the good ones.
