South Charleston Suspensions -- Or Lack Thereof

November 24, 2010 - Seth Staskey
It's been a while since I last blogged and I apologize to my loyal readers.

I've been following this case (from afar) involving the South Charleston football players who've been suspended by the SSAC for their roles in a fight. I've read some accounts from the Charleston media as well as the local media and I think these guys should be suspended without a doubt. The players were seemingly ejected from their game and SSAC rules call for a suspension and it should be served.

I see the parents' point of view. They want their kids to be able to play, but they should have done a better job of teaching their kids about right and wrong when they were growing up. A brawl and high school football just don't belong in the same sentence. The fact of the matter is tempers flare in sporting events at all levels, but a bench-clearing brawl is too much. These players need to serve their time.

My biggest issue with a court-issued injunction is the fact that the SSAC shouldn't even have rules. The organization's rules are basically thrown out the window in a court of law and that's not right. It's also not right for the players not involved in the fight.
