Troy Bumper update-you decide...

Troy/USA Sports just replaced 28 of our broken 25lb bumpers.  Well,, wait, they replaced 14 of them and and our vendor replaced 14 so Troy wouldn’t even replace all 28 of the VTX’s that were broken and three months into a year warranty.


The reason they decided to replace any?  I was told they were doing it so I would quit posting on the forums about them….Not to fix the problem or honor a warranty, just to shut me up(?)

QUOTE:  kid: Woods, im not getting any better at cleans and running.

Woods: Well, when you show up once every two weeks, even though you pay me every month, what do you expect?

kid: You just want me to work way to much! I mean its the summer time Woods!  Its not time to really train hard.

Woods: please go home hug your mother and kiss her on the check.  Then turn to your dad, smack him in the head and tell him "thanks for making me a Nancy!"

Kid: I dont understand?

Woods: And you never will.

Coach, shoot me an email at with your phone number when you get a chance. Really want to talk to you how you do the off season program over there and get some idea for ours. Hopefully we are still a ways away from that but still want to get the ball rolling. Give me a shout.
