Thread: Wil Everidge--This is not Sambo
1/10/2012 6:41pm, #81
So what we've discovered so far is that Coach Wil has a felony on his record involving lack of payment for child support. Not sure if that's relevant to our investigations except to show a lack of integrity. This coupled by a lack of skill in coaching, teaching, ability to properly give the history of the art he's teaching.
Anybody want to get a hold of his coach?
I also found something interesting about the tournaments he's been attending.
How much of this is truly relevant?

As an outsider looking in...and an instigator...please post more about the tournaments.

If I recall from past investigations at this point in time all information is relevant. Anything dirty is worth posting. Omega has anyone got contact information for Wil's coach? When I tried to find information the only source I found was Coach Wil.

No, that is not the case. Investigations have been narrowed until some things can be confirmed. At this point I say post what you found. I know I've been looking at the tournaments and something seems off.
Goes back to the claim of who and what org runs SOmbo.

Plus, you do not know the circumstances of his failure to pay child support, so the question of his integrity regarding that charge/conviction is speculation on your part. Unless you have run a detailed criminal history with the disposition of the charges (which you can't get online as far as I know.
I run full criminal histories (NCIC and state)as part of my job, and it's a crime for me to disclose ANY of that information publicly, period.
So I say go all out on the guys MA history and claims, but leave the personal stuff out.

I agree with Ben that failure to pay child support is not necessarily indicative of a poor character. There's a myriad of economic, legal and personal issues that could be behind it.
A drink driving conviction or sex offence would be relevant, but missed payment of child support is, in my book, like a missed credit card payment. Not fantastic for your credit record, but not indicative of a moral failure.
Stick to the absence of Sambo contest achievements and utter lack of skill in the videos. That alone should be enough rope to hang with.

Gentleman, on a personal note, I refrain from doing anything in which it could turn into wild speculative accusations. Coach Wil works with children who are, for lack of a better term, special needs. Could this child support thing be relevant? My opinion is yes, but I need more details. If it's just a case of hard luck then I say let it go. That is my opinion. I do agree that if it's nothing more than that then we need to keep it out. So I'm on the fence right now until we know for sure.

In a martial bubble, failure to pay child support would be irrelevant. However, if a person is trying to take the moral high ground regarding the relationship of martial arts to the world outside its bubble, I believe whether a person still is or is not a deadbeat dad does become relevant to the discussion.
