FREEDOM of Speech is great, but it seems like you all are forgetting that the Rules were broken and when you do wrong you have to suffer the consequences. It is a shame for the others on the team, but the Coach is the blame... He has a lot of appologizing to do to those boys. Yes sports are fun and teach some very important life lessons, but you are right when you say that EDUCATION is the most important outcome here. So get over it and stop pointing fingers and anticipating starting another fight after a game because you think you know who snitched on Signal Mtn. only the person who snitched knows who he or she is, so get over it and please don't show your tail at the last game of the season with a brawl, like you SM folks did in South Pitt last year... That was and would be inappropriate.
SPORTSMANSHIP read up on the definition...... all of you!!!!!!!!!!!
I agree elleemmo.. great comment.
and they mentioned 4 players? where are the others at and what happened to their appeals?
And when you think about it the travel from Brainard to Signal every morning, how, who and why would you do such with gas prices like they are. I am sure his parents do not make that good of money, especially when you work food service.
The use of BULLYING is crap. PROVE it! It should be documented somewhere if this happened. I agree with the TSSAA that if you do no WRONG you have no reason to worry about being ivestigated.. Get over it and lets move on.
All I hear is signal mountain, Who cares about signal mtn. we all need to think about the boys here.. they are the ones who are having to suffer from the coaches and schools oversite. like I said before: " Shame on you coach, SHAME.
StrongIf you have nothing to hide and if all was legal and legit then there would be NO investigation, but as we all know something was illegal and TSSAA took care of it. I just hope money does not continue to cover up the wrong and allow it to continue to happen inother schools. Let's show our kids and our future adults here that Stronghonesty is the best policy.
Strongif you do NO wrong you don't get punished. What is importnt is that all kids and parents and those who are responsible to make he higher decisions know that if you do wrong you have to suffer the consequence. Our future is watching so doing right is key here. *Emphasis*Strong
Don't forget; Champions DO NOT get caught after the championship game with underage drinking.. Where was the admin. then? serving the youngstgers? Come on, let our kids be kids and enjoy sports in school and learn that rules are rules to be followed and if you screw up and get caught you have to pay the price. What examples will we be setting if nothing is done??? As a parent ask yourself that question..... I would rather my children to know to do the right thing and make wise decisions in life.
Not only that but I am sure there are plenty of kids who live on signal mtn and sit on the sidelines eah week that would love to play for their folks instead of those the coach has recruited.
It is a SHAME this KID has to be in the middle of this turmoil that has been created by greed and adults. Like it was posted earlier SHAME ON YOU COACH!
SHAME ON YOU SIGNAL MOUTAIN COACHES. SHAME SHAME!!!!!!!!!! U KNOW YOU DID WRONG AND THIS CHILD IS GONNA SUFFER FOR IT.
