In one of the most ignorant decisions I've ever heard of, a South Carolina high school will no longer allow any attendance at both boys and girls varsity sporting events. Due to fighting in the parking lot and surrounding neighborhoods following games only players, coaches, other game personnel, school administrators, police and media will be allowed to attend the games. If there is that little control of students behavior then perhaps all extra curricular sports at the school should be indefinitely suspended. Maybe all extra curriculars should be discontinued period, at least till the kids start acting like human beings, the adults figure out how to get control of the situation, or a set of normal children move up into the high school grades. Now, I wonder why the jails are full.
