Neither article is very thorough. Is this "freshman" player cut from the varsity team or the junior varsity team? apparently there are 11 players who tried out and started in basketball class in their athletics period when school started in september, and 9 were replaced when the football season was over and other athletes (presumably upper classmen) were now free to also play basketball. Guess what thats 20 kids. 2 teams of 10 each 10 varsity and 10 junior varsity, sounds like the beginning of a great program. But a program (like most school athletic programs) where the younger,inexperienced,less physically mature kids have to practice,study and play hard before they can move up to the Varsity team.
I am confused as to where in the constitution it says that every child has the right to a "full and complete education" and the right to compete in sports. So by this reasoning, if the 120lb freshman wants to play football (beacause its his right) and gets concussed and a spinal injury by the 250 lb linebacker on the opposing team, who will be at fault? The parent, the coach, the school or the state who said he had to play??
It seems to me that the trend today is that everyone feels they should everything everyone else has - so get a lawyer if you feel that you don't have everything everyone else has. I think it is so sad to see the advertisements on TV which simple say - call me - I am a lawyer - we can sue someone. And now we have lawyers that specialze in sueing other lawyers.
I noticed the other day that the neighbor has a new pick up truck - better call my lawyer!
Of course someone can have what I have - but they get the payments and 12 hour days it takes to pay for it too.
