I've been searching online to find information regarding how to deal with a person I feel is being slanderous to my husband.
A brief summary:
Last fall 2 men applied to coach a midget hockey team here in our town. The executive voted unanimously 5-0 for my husband after hearing from both men.
Since then the other man has not stopped making negative comments about my husband and his coaching abilities. He is constantly bad mouthing him. Many people have told us about the comments. His wife even wrote a letter to complain about our celebration drive around town after the team's provincial win...:To me the whole problem is that her husband did not get the coach's position and so they feel free to say it was somehow done in an underhanded way.This displays a profound lack of maturity and sense of "Fair Play" from someone who was entrusted with a coaching position, and the manner by which that happened makes the event all the more disgraceful.
This has continued all winter & we have a public meeting on Sunday. I'd like any advise you may have on advising them that they are being slanderous and how we should deal with this whole thing.
Thank you for your time.
