Chamber of Commerce President Hardy announces resignation April 20, 2015
Haven't you heard? Obamacare has taken care of that problem. Everybody has access to sufficient health care now, whether you can pay for it or not. Obamacare can't make everybody stop smoking and being a lardass.
At least a thousand.
Picture ID required to buy beer, cigarettes. To prove you're old enough to get into an "R" movie. To open a checking account. To get a loan. To use a credit card. But not to vote. What in the actual hell makes sense about any of that?
I agree that the move for DWS is inevitable. Winning anything in the GISA after all of the Macon schools have jumped ship will be like winning the tallest midget award.
I'm curious as to why you think GHSA will go back to 5 classifications, though. The addition of a 6th classification has increased the amount of money that flows into Thomaston. With the economy being like it is, it's hard to unring the bell, so to speak. They like that money in the GHSA offices. If they do in fact go back to 5 classes, what would be the reasons for doing so, and do you think that the A schools would still be split into public/private, or go back to the way things used to be?
Perhaps reading comprehension ain't one of your strong points either, Mike. Don't blame the GHSA for the inability of Randoph-Clay and their athletic department to follow instructions. The following is borrowed from another source about this very topic......
Here are the GHSA's instructions to playoff teams:
Here is the quote from the document on PAGE 1:
BRACKET – The team listed on the bottom of the respective bracket will be the "Home Team" and wear white jerseys. The teams listed on the top of the respective bracket will be the "Visiting Team" and wear dark jerseys
Here's the bracket:
I don't have any kids that play. I'm not a coach. It took me 2 minutes to find this without knowing exactly where it was located. If you go to GHSA.net, click Sporting Activities, Basketball in the middle of the page is the document I linked above called "Important Team Instructions for State Basketball Tournament". Now here's the kicker: The first paragraph of this document says this:
"Please read the "General Instructions" very carefully. Each year we have problems arise because the coaches/team representatives did not follow the instructions. Pay particular attention to the State Tournament bracket regarding the issue of which uniform your team should be wearing each game. "
I know you're just pandering to the local readers, but this is lame.
This is not the fault of the GHSA. All it requires to know what uniform to wear is the ability to read. Not to mention, why would you travel without both home and away uniforms anyway, just in case something like this might have popped up? It's not like they didn't have room on the bus for the 2nd set of uniforms.
Thanks for the assist, dmyers. I tried to type slowly to help Dumbanique out with his poor reading comprehension, but apparently it didn't work.
What I'm talking about, Dumbanique, is that during summer camps, there is no GISA/GHSA. There are just teams that show up at camps to work on their games. And while they are there at camp, the teams play each other while officials work the camps and get evaluated. DWS is one of those GISA teams that goes to camp and competes against teams that compete in the GHSA. And they hold their own. They win some and lose some.
As for playing any of the 4 public high schools in Albany, they don't. The Albany schools obviously attend camp somewhere besides Macon. However, I don't see how you figure that class A schools competing against larger schools is irrelevant to the conversation, seeing as how if DWS elected to join the GHSA, they would be a class A school. Tell me again how those class A schools like Terrell, Mitchell, and Randolph do when they play up. Ask Monroe about Terrell. Check and see where Dwight Howard played HS ball. A little small class A private school. Look and see where Eagle's Landing played up until a few years ago. You've heard of Eagle's Landing, right? It's that school that came to Albany last week and curb-stomped on your public high schools in Albany.
Apparently, you are ignorant of the fact that the public schools cried about private schools until they got the split in A ball. You can call it minor leagues if you want to, but I've seen DWS at camp in the summer and they more than hold their own with the public schools. Not to mention, there are plenty of A schools that could compete with almost any school in a larger classification.
The Lee County girls already understood how to win, seeing as how they had gone to the playoffs 3 of the 5 years prior to Davis getting there. If Davis is doing such a fantastic job with the girls, explain how they actually went backwards this year in terms of wins, and the underclasssmen on the team have been coached the past 2 years by Davis.
