One of the tweets has already tried to absolve these frauds by claiming that people want to disparage an "all black coaching staff."

That's not gonna work.

Yeah, that's what caught my eye. 

I hope you're right. 

If they work that angle, and get some dumb celebrity to take up their cause and come up with an ever beloved hashtag- let's try #BS2endwhitesupremacy- it could change everything. 🤣

The desperate attempts to undermine public education in the pursuit of personal gain has created an environment where total fraud schools can pop up and not draw any scrutiny until much damage has occurred. 

This is really the bottom line of all of this.

The story is funny and shyster Joe Maimone should be tarred and feathered and ostracized.

But the constant attempts to "go it alone" or "take their ball and go home" has created a culture of nose-thumbing at public institutions.

Private schools are great. They serve a purpose. But good ones need to be protected from being lumped with these crooks and con artists looking to make a buck or get some ink.

It seems the most common argument for scheduling these teams is "well, the kids wanted to get exposure against mega recruits and see how they stack up". Make it so that such opportunities must come against real high schools that operate according to the same agreed to rules that the school in question operates by. It seems state associations must intervene here and ban the practice.

There's also a lack of respect for genuine quality.

All some shyster has to do is claim that the "school" is trying to help poor, underserved kids and somehow they get away with it.

Bishop Sycamore is not only a scam run by criminals but it's an incompetent one. Even if they had good intentions, they're not capable of delivering.

Their coaches are buffoons and street agents who can't coach a lick of football. Their appearance on ESPN was a disgrace and an embarrassment.

Even if they were trying to get genuine high school kids some exposure for scholarships purposes, they're not equipped to do it.

Leave it to the professionals and the programs that have an actual track record.

Look at this goofball.

Agreeing to lose 96-0 is not courageous especially when it's done in a fraudulent manner to seek publicity for a fake school.

They had no intention of winning or even competing. To call that courageous is stupefying.

“These boys should be lauded instead of maligned right now,” Maimone said. “They were the most courageous team in America. They wanted to take on IMG and Duncanville in three weeks’ time. Nobody else did.”

Also IMG and Duncanville are trying to get a good look out of games like this. They signed up thinking they were playing another high caliber team. Instead they got sold a bag of shit. Games like this do nobody favors. Im really stunned GSB is this emotionally invested in this. Money was literally taken under fraudulent circumstances. Somebody is going to jail when this is all said and done. Follow the money.

Both of those teams are very hard to book for the obvious reasons. In each case BS was the ONLY team out of hundreds that took advantage of the exciting oppty that was presented. It's better to book a guaranteed win than take a bye. 99.9% of the teams around America have made that same decision at one time or another. #LastChanceHigh

We couldn't as the game was part of the larger festivities occurring at the HOF in Canton last weekend. Plus, IMG is playing at LaSalle this Friday night. They're spending all of this week in the area, then busing the short distance to Cincy on Friday. #LastChanceHigh

No trolling.

No inflammatory posts. 

Only attack the message, not the messenger. 

No personal attacks.  

Complaints about you are to be communicated privately. 

Community kindness.  

Respect the privacy of others.

No disdain, or petty or vindictive conduct just because the person likes Trump.

We are a Board and Nation of laws and guidelines, right? 

Have you read the posts of the person you are defending over the years?  Racist and many with lots of hate.  I'm guessing maybe.  But since he's you're friend, you're gonna now try and bring in the rules.  Carry on.

For you to say no one gets paid, including you, is a lie. When I coached high school ball we played in several TV games. There is always a licensing fee. The bare minimum was $1k. We got anywhere from $5k to $15k, depending on the the game. We also got travel paid for travel costs if it was an out-of-state game. For the travel, we negotiated the reimbursement. We also got a % of the gate and concessions. Again, it was negotiated and put into the contract. We did not ever travel to play someone, tv or not, that wasn’t going to financially help our program. And that is where the money went. Into our program. It sounds like BS is pocketing every dime they bring in. A financial audit is in order. The word is embezzlement. That’s when you steal money for personal use that is earmarked for the organization.
