I don't get all the hate for Kakashi. First, Sasuke was basically like handing someone a time bomb and telling them to defuse it while threatening to blow it up with more explosives. Second, Kakashi let Naruto be trained by others because 1. Jiraiya was a much better ninja, 2.. Yamato could limit the nine tails from taking over when it looked like Naruto might lose control completely. Third, it was Sakura. --- Official Talk No Jutsu of All Boards- The Hunter has the will to win. Do you?
- Let me just send my three students on very dangerous missions without telling them how to call me for help. - Oh I only have two students now, I guess I'll just leave them to go on another very dangerous mission without my help once again. - Only one student left? I guess I'll let him be the one that trains my son.
To be fair, Minato was off fighting in a war too. Y'know, fighting 1000 shinobis, A, and Killer Bee/Gyuki.
-Minato-senpai wants to me to train his son, but instead I'm going to train that Uchiha kid that TOTALLY not psychotic or revenge obsessed in any way. I don't care for the Pink haired one. -Oh, Sasuke-kun wants to learn about Elemental jutsu. Nothing bad is going to happen. -SWEET!! Jiraiya-Senpai is here! Now I can read more porn in front of kids instead of teaching them. -Sasuke-kun left the village for Orochimaru. Now I don't have no one else to teach...
it wouldn't be Minato-senpai or Jiraiya-senpai, if Kakashi was saying it, it would be Minato Sensei or Jiraiya Sensei. or just Minato or Jiraiya.
A good example of how half-assed a teacher Kakashi is: Remember that Five-Pronged Seal Orochimaru put on Naruto in the Forest of Death, the one that kept him from using chakra properly, and that Jiraiya picked up on almost immediately? Kakashi never even noticed it. --- I bet you were thinking how hot it would be to see Tsunade with her gates wide open, inviting you... ~DuneMan

You would have thought he would have noticed it given how much time little Naruto spent shirtless around him. Oh wait...
Ya not really sure why people are bashing kakashi so bad, he spent time on sasuke because he was the only one who could, he had the sharigan and therefore was the only person sasuke could actually learn anything from, and lets be honest the pacing of the story is to fast for him to teach them anything, what does he actually teach anybody except for the tree climbing and that one month of training for sasuke to learn the chidori? I mean they go on the land of waves mission, then right after they go to the chunin exams, then he does the one month of training with sasuke, then after that hes doing missions everyday with the other jonin. and didnt jiraya tell kakashi that he would train naruto anyway so he could focus on the others? and ok he didnt teach sakura anything....but what did you expect him to teach her the chidori? random summoning? random jutsu etc? then theres the point of people saying he failed to keep sasuke from leaving. like really? the kid became obsessed with power why would he stay with kakashi when a sanin is offering to train him? and lets not forget that hes a person with his own mind, which most people dont end up changing, so kakashi really couldnt have done a single thing for him at that point.
