    The people on here who continue to bash Corbin do not know the Corbin that I know. Have any of you experienced it personally here in the last 10 years. Yes, there is racism here as there is everywhere, but I would say with much confidence that there are no more racists per capita here than in Knox Co., Laurel Co., Madison Co., Fayette Co. etc. If people would quit perpetuating some of these stories, maybe, just maybe, the perception would change and the racists who are here would climb under the rock where they belong and not feel as though they have a voice here.

    Sanctions for what?

    Can you link videos of players from schools of any of those spots spouting off racist statements?

    And those who think the game should
    Have been played are naive or want to see a right. By refusing to play it brought more attention to the shameful and sick video. Not playing also removed any potential for an altercation. We all know that when you have an event in these situations that racist groups or Sick people sometimes show up to make a statement.

    Not playing brought more attention on the racist video. That is a good thing.

    You’ve obviously never dealt with racism, otherwise this is the most ignorant take I’ve read in a while.

    No I haven’t ever dealt with it and hate that people have to go through it. I’m just saying that playing the game would have made a statement again racism. Let them know that they are here to take care of business and that Doss isnt going to shy away from nasty words being said.

    Would that not result in there being no consequences at all for the people that spouted off the hate?

    There was at least one thread on that when it came out and it was huge news in this area. The general feeling about that is that no one was surprised with that either.

    I have not seen the video itself, but based on things that I have heard and read, this could be a violation of KHSAA Bylaw 15 section 1a regarding sportsmanship.

    Good decision by Doss IMO.

    I don't want to paint the city of Corbin with a broad brush because of one player's actions, but there's no need to play this game. I think this is a wise decision by those who made it.

    Now this I can agree with.
