This is just sad for the kids who were supposed to play in the game, the Panther Gold.
The parents of the team that was banned from the playoffs should be ashamed of themselves. Their coach violated the rules, the team needs to abide by the rules and deal with the consequences.
What does this say to the kids? I think one of the kids said it perfectly in the piece, that it is ok to cheat.
I also blame the Arapaho Youth League. They are spineless and caved because some parents filed a lawsuit. They need to stand by their rules and their decision. It appears that they don’t because one of the kids did this has happened before.
If you can’t abide by the rules and stand by your decision, why do you have a league?
These kids are hurting, they played by the rules, and should be playing a game tomorrow. I hope that these kids don’t change because they are a bunch of great kids.
