    Ferrari's No Longer @ Blair

    Why would they prevent him from transferring? He would never compete against them. That doesn't make sense. Also, I worked at an elite boarding school. Discipline cases aren't as quick to resolve as one may think. I remember being on the discipline committee and having a case take six days to reach us. I'm sure the school has to investigate and make sure all legal ducks are in a row. And Blair is only 43,400? Is that just for day students or is that boarding?

    Bo’s Gesture of Sportsmanship

    As an official, I cringe when a kid offers his hand to help a pinned opponent up, especially if it was a heated match. I usually tell the kid not to bother, just to go to the center. I have seen some ticked off kids in these situations... and that is only at the high school level.

    Pet peeve: "minor decision" or "minor"

    Hair Cut

    Yes. It was up to the coaches to prevent this humiliation. They knew the rule. They had four years to get a legal hair cover. Then the tried to pull a fast one by sending the kid to the mat improperly equipped.

    Long hair is all over the place during a match and can become gross. Why do people with long hair in other combat sports braid it and artificially restrict their long hair when not required (think UFC)? And when your hair, whether long or short is used (or potentially used) as a weapon against me... that's where your right to have a hairstyle of your choosing ends and my right begins. (ex. Members of 96 Olympic Greco talking about shaving heads so they could use the stubble to cause abrasions to opponents) Not a lot of issues in the NFL or hockey with someone rubbing their abrasive stubble or hair into your cheekbone. Or basketball for that matter.

    Good point... same with skin conditions that may become apparent during the match. Oops the designated official missed the herpes gladitorium during skin checks... now Junior is entitled to wrestle with it

    Its not an interpretation... it is the rule. Contemplate that for a moment. Buena knew they were in violation of the rule and tried to pull a fast one. And you, sir, are a troll. Good day...

    So, a real issue is with the referee that let it slide previously.

    I can deal with the constitution contemplating something; Not the NFHS rules. Actually, you are incorrect...Rule 3 section 1 article 2: "...The referee has the sole authority for ruling on infractions or irregularities not covered within the NFHS rules." Buy a rulebook Katie. And read it. Finally- it has been stated that the referee gave the kid two choices. Forfeit or cut his hair. The third choice is the easiest: wear the proper hair cover. This has been a rule for at least four years. Hair covers must be attached to the headgear. Shame on the coaches.

    The word "contemplate" is being misused repeatedly.

    Gilman quote from Worlds evaluation

    Was the original post even meant to be about some supposed slight on up and comers (whom Giman has been complimentary of) or his choice of words "... folks from Japan." (considering his past supposed gaffe) I think some of us may have missed the point of the OP.

    Because I couldn't find a video of "Bobby Knight Ranger", the Night Ranger tribute band that dresses up like Coach Knight.
