Time for a little ethics debate:
I'm guessing most of you saw this story about the 0-4 Michigan h.s. team whose season was cancelled -- they hadn't won a game, or even scored a point. Administrators feared for the kids' safety.
What do you think of the decision:
*Safety first or quitting?
*Which side shows more sportsmanship?
Here's my take: The school and county are within their rights to cancel the competition with the other schools in the district, but I put it absolutely back onto them to find a way for these kids to compete.
For example, they could look around the state (or even the region) for other weak schools who can't compete with the "big boys," then let them play a modified season. In college, this is called "Division 1-AA," "Division 2" and "Division 3."
The point is this: I'm all for the safety of the kids, but taking away their sport is wrong and it's on the administrators to make it right.
