More sniffles

November 24, 2010 - Mike Mathison
Times for teenagers to grow up because it is sure obvious the adults can't. I guess running onto the field in a melee means rules do not matter. "But, he started it." Yeah, no one cares. Four South Charleston football players were suspended by SSAC Executive Director Gary Ray after a fight broke out at the end of last week's 30-26 win by the Black Bears over Hurricane. A Hurricane player punched a South Charleston player and all heck broke out with 14.4 seconds left in the game. SSAC's rules are very particular when it comes to this -- you leave the bench, you get suspended. Considering about two dozen South Charleston players left the bench, only having four suspended means the Black Bears came out ahead. Save me the "he started it" routine. You aren't 6 anymore, although the adults are acting like it. Those four are eligible for Saturday's West Virginia Class AAA semifinal game against Brooke at Laidley Field because some adult lawyer thought those kids should be allowed to play and some adult judge thought the same while some adult coach and some adult principal and some adult superintendent have no problem with what has transpired. It is obvious they think everything is OK because not one of them has shown any backbone in this transaction. I feel bad for the principal when the next fight at South Charleston breaks out and he suspends the students and, rather quickly, they get an injunction to say the school rule is unconstitutional. Your bed. Lie down.
