I still can't believe this. Investigation by the State Civil Rights Division???
This isn't fucking apartheid. It's not 1962 either.
Look if you want to suspend a guy for talking trash on the court then fine. I don't like it but ok, I do think high school could be a little more respectful, especially if we're still trying to maintain a "student/athlete" ideal and attempting to teach young people some respect for others in general. Besides, that is the essence of team sports--one guy makes a mistake the team pays for it. Same with team penalties for trash talk--I view that as far more reasonable than say suspension, but on the lame and slightly ridiculous ala the NCAA's rule against "excessive TD celebration", which has been miscalled and abused over and over. But I get it. I can accept that as a natural if kinda lame evolution of sports.
But what the fuck chuck?? "find themselves under investigation by the state Civil Rights Division"! That little gem there is outrageous to me. Does no one here think this is a ridiculous and dangerous abridgment of free speech??
