My point is initially this was a good discussion that shifted it's focus to whether or not someone played at a high enough level? I've helped train guys that played in the NBA and I'd be lucky if I could dribble past my 12 year old nephew. As far as your coach having a purpose, put a world class chef in McDonald's and he'll be limited in what purpose he has for the fries and big macs. I'm not saying he can't make a decent meal, but it would be a different story if he were in a world class restaurant in Paris.
We have people out there drinking the kool-aid saying not to squat, influenced by a coach whose team has won only 50% of it's games played since his groundbreaking DVD's were released. Perhaps the comments on the BOSU indicates a battle going on there as well. When coaches perceived to be at a high level don't know how to put the meat and potatoes of a workout together, the industry has a bigger problem than what level someone played at.
Hemann, the thread got away from you and you may not have come away with anything you can sink your teeth into. Sorry if I contributed to that.
