    If I had to guess, one of the five had to have remembered that CMU/OSU ending, because it's the same issue here. My guess, not knowing these guys is that they eventually talked themselves out of the correct call.

    I'm just amazed no one pulled out the rule book. I coach U9 girls fucking soccer and I have the FIFA Laws of the Game and our association's rules on my phone. I reference that shit all of the time when there is a question.

    I don't know what their legal argument will be, but I bet Fenwick has some pretty solid lawyers in that student/alumni base....

    I bet IHSA's lawyers are just thrilled with the Mea Culpa press release.

    Well the five of them were probably not carrying their books, and I doubt the coaches were. What I'm most surprised about is there not being a clinician, assignor, IHSA rep there to intercede.

    New life lesson: if you can't stop the other team from scoring in OT, then sue!
    "playing in the state championship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and that if the emergency order is not granted, Fenwick would face irreparable harm"

    Mods, change the thread title to "Irreparable Harm Caused By Not Playing High School Football."

    There are examples of similar instances happening in other states, but what chance do you give Fenwick of winning this one?

    I think half the alumni base of Fenwick went to Notre Dame and now practice law. I know this isn't Fenwick vs. Plainfield North at this point, but even Fenwick vs. IHSA lawyers is a mismatch.

    Anyone know what the refernce is to the 1995 wrestling playoffs that got cancelled? Reading some high school sports gay gentleman website talking about Mt Carmel and some shit with wrestling.

    I don't know what their chances are, but Matt Lindland (in)famously sued his way onto an Olympic wrestling team.

    Agreed. Maybe, you know, make a new thread with that title, and leave the old one the way it was.

    Why did the other team suddenly get the ball after an IG?

    That's gay though. This encourages the team to commit a penalty and avoid making a football play.

    I see that the wrong calm was made but if an incorrect call makes more sense than the correct call then fuck it those are the breaks

    The officiating sucked but taking this to court is a whiny limp dick thing to do. Plenty of pro games are decided by shitty officiating and they have to live with the result.

    I feel like the some shithead tag is basically for when you have nothing to say, but still feel the need to remind people that you have nothing meaningful to add to the thread.

    Real Sports did a good piece on youth football tonight. Made some coach from San Antonio that has 6 year olds banging skulls for 90 minutes a night look like a fucking idiot.

    Kids simply shouldn't play tackle football until high school.

    The thing people don't realize is that football literally takes no actual skills. Catching and throwing a football isn't skill, compare to shooting/dribbling a basketball, hitting a baseball, and skating & handling/shooting a puck. The whole game is speed and strength. Nothing you can't figure out fast once you've learned the strategy from years of watching.

    Of course, if I had my biased wish, everyone would only play soccer and we'd rule the world. But I'll be dead long before then.

    Bernstein's talking about how football and maybe hockey won't exist as we know them in 10 years once the concussion/CTE findings are revealed where they can test the blood before and after a game and show the damage that is done. He might be spouting off tinfoil hat shit being the know it all douche that he is, but football I bet will change.

    Difference is that you can play hockey without banging skulls.

    So piss play is a common thing in high school football? That's an odd life lesson.

    In my years of HS football, there was no pissing on dudes or anyone. A couple of freshman would fall for the atomic situp, but fuck all this shit now.

    I'm not sure dude on dude facesitting is that much better than piss play.

    But whatever you need to do to prove your heterosexuality.

    The fact that two different sports were also named, plus if Boers and Bernstein texters are to be believed, a couple other of sports, I see no reason why the IHSA couldn't bar them from post season activities.

    With the situp, dude's face in there for miliseconds, pissing can take a while, both are fucking gross though. But, I guess most high school students are dumb as fuck.
