Calling the Highlands baseball team "Dirty Birds" is a GROSS understatement

    Some of the tweets I saw the profile pics were football and baseball players in game action. Come on Birds the blue ribbon school shows you are smarter than that. Being a NewCath grad I grew up hating HHS and loved playing vs them. With all the dislike always had respect for their accomplishments but I am definitely losing some respect.

    I will say it again, the administration at Highlands is not worried about pleasing those that read BluegrassPreps or any other website for that matter. Never have and never will. There will be no lawsuit, charges or whatever other crazy thing that some on here want to come up with.
    This is a public forum where people discuss and formulate opinions on issues based on the facts set forth. BGP is serving the purpose it is suppose to serve. Some think the admin should get out in front and some don't. Everyone is entitled to an opinion in a public forum and it will never be agreed upon by everyone. I respect where you stand but don't have to agree.

    Sounds like the perfect defense.
    Not correct. I haven't heard that there were any seniors involved.

    But, I do give you points for trying to take the whole thing to an entirely new level. Maybe USAToday will do another story using this new "fact."

    Isn't the question here what is opinion, what is fact, and what is just made up? You can make up your own opinions, but you can make up your own facts.

    Just for good measure (and I am not releasing any names to anyone for any reason) I do know there were seniors involved.

    So it is correct.

    So I guess you're an old timey guy sitting there with a stick?

    I agree. No one seems to know the full story and if they do it is being muddied by hearsay and false facts. The fact I am speaking of is admin getting out in front or staying silent. Its obvious the choice they have made is to stay silent. I don't necessarily agree with that choice.

    Please state everything that you have said so far that is "Correct" and is "Fact" Obviously without naming names. I would like to hear everything that you "know" and have it out there for everyone to see in black and white. Perhaps then we can sift through some things and really get down to the true facts and the hearsay.

    Nobody knows what is fact except the Perps/Victim....Period.

    Everything else is hearsay.

    Staying silent would not be my choice. Addressing it matter of factly and taking the stance that the school district does not condone the behavior would be how I would handle it if I were on the Administration. Only because there is speculation out there regarding hazing/bullying. It appears though they are not going to make a comment or a stance and hope this goes away.

    The most important part of this thread is to ensure that no child is bullied.
    But it is ok to call kids names and place labels on them, on this message board and thread?

    Its just another poor decision is all I was pointing out. I believe we can all agree on that
