    Default Online school appealing ruling

    A school without gym won state two years in a row at 1a div 2 in Idaho. They have several f1 players. That is not same as exchange students that can only play for year. Have some good players that could play at Post Falls too natives. State said can,t play in tournaments. They are appealing it, saying violates 14th amendment not letting them play. They are not citizens and have major advantage over rural Idaho High Schools that only have kids living in there district.

    So the kids are from, like, Eastern Europe or Australia?

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    Most of there international players are from Africa. Pretty tall too. Several years ago a private school in Sun Valley showcased a kid from Senegal were told to forfeit games, couldn,t play in tournament hat kid. Bitched about it after the fact. They usually don,t give a shit about basketball or any sport besides skiing of soccer. Borderline 2a and petition to be div 2 every year for volleyball and basketball.

    The northern Idaho school has an advantage.

    Now the state budge. Since that chicken shit school was going to court eight members of the board of control said we will let your f1 students come as long as they play jv one year. I gave my two cents on the Idahosports site. Talked about it in cda a couple years ago when they won there first championship. Oh no we donlt recruit and on and on. Bullshit you do. We reavaluate our what we do sometimes. Bullshit there.

    Some of those kids play soccer in public school and football too. Johnny Hillman has a brother that was post falls star. Heard he is arrogant. I donlt know him. Genesis Prep has a major advantage. What can we do for them to make a statement now?

    We played a private Christian school in Twin Falls, one of there kids played varsity at Uncle Ted and Lou Dobbs alma mater and transferred to Christian school. I guess made foind apartment in the town. But you have to vacate and change everything if y want to play. He was supposed to play jv only. However he was playing varsity probably because of what the state did for that chicken shit school. Just got eligible and they blanked us. Now for post season hopefully we can bet the sled dogs than play winner of purple Cowboys on Utah Wyming border or miners in Central Idaho, we already beat them when I made debut as pa announcer.
