I agree i dont see what the OHSAA could of done, really suspend the whole team or put them on probation for something like this. When they really didn't do anything wrong!! I went to windham in high school graduated in 06. I was at the game, i can see why the JFK coaches were mad. Windham got every call their way, it all started in the JV game when the JFK coach was yelling timeout and the official ran right by him. I was sitting behind the JFK bench both games, but yea i agree with the OHSAA in not doing anything. If you go by the rules it says they cant leave the court and enter where the fans are they didnt do that.

I agree on the sensationalism. Hopefully, Dana and the Trib will view this as a teachable moment.

I also think JFK and their Asst. Coach treats this the same. The last thing you should teach your players is giving up and not playing from start to finish. I understand if players are getting harassed, but I've also heard and read past comments about the treatment that JFK students give to opponents at home games.

But in the end, I'd give JFK a pass, considering any 'assumed' and perceived moniker they now have held over them because of the past actions of Brother Baker. But, especially, after watching the cruel treatment of a NC State basketball player this week by the Cameron Crazies at Duke. That was sick.

The words "sensationalism" and "witch hunt" come to mind. I read the articles and I get the feeling that there is disappointment that this particular news story might come to an end. My JFK student has been told to keep his head high, remember what Blue Pride means, continue to conduct yourself in a manner of which we can be proud, and don't believe everything you read in the Trib.

Agree! Do they realize how the young men felt reading the article and not knowing what the outcome will be? It's a shame we only have the "Warren Tribune" as a local newspaper to keep people updated on the news.

How sad that the Tribune knew this information yesterday and chose to run the headline that they did yesterday. Definitely a lesson to used in teaching our young men and women the creativity headlines and reporting to sell newspapers. These discussions have talked about accountability and oversight well perhaps we should ask the same thing concerning the Tribune.

I wish the JFK players the best. The kids shouldn't be punished for the stupid actions of others. And really, what does a two game suspension mean. This isn't the NBA, he's not getting paid 7 figures a year, this isn't going to hurt him.
