    Heck there are All Americans and a Mr Football who played at Highlands that agree with me 100% and echo the exact same things because I have personally talked to them in recent weeks.

    I will hang my hat in their crowd for the sake of this argument
    And this is another issue I've had from the beginning... Why do you or those people think your opinion should matter any more than anyone elses? I've talked to several people, with similar backgrounds, that agree with me too. Is that supposed to make you "right?"

    Absolutely their opinions count and they spoke and the administration listened to them.

    A parent sent a mass email out to every active player asking them to send in a letter of support for BW to the administration.

    Wow, talk about putting pressure on a kid. If he does as told then he either does support his coach or he writes in in fear of potential consequences. The kid that didn’t write a letter might have well just said he didn’t support his coach.

    The big question is, the reaction of the kids may have changed if the baseball coach comments would have come out first instead of later. Would these kids had participated had they known their coach threw them under the bus to the administration.

    Probably the biggest difference between your peeps and my peeps is a money thingy to the school district.

    Does this make any sense?

    So now the kids were pressured into showing support for their coach? A new conspiracy is born!

    I'm still confused as to how the baseball coach is suddenly a factor in this?

    I too have peeps that give money to that school district that share my opinions.

    So, not quite.

    But since you brought that up... Are you insinuating that people wouldn't give money to the program if they didn't like the coach? Wouldn't that make them fair-weather fans and not true supporters of the PROGRAM?

    This has more plot twists than an M. Night Shyamalan movie...

    Come on, Sweep. You know as well as I do no one is being pressured into doing anything they don’t want to do in this situation. It’s clear there are pro-BW people and anti-BW people in Ft. Thomas and lines have been drawn in the sand. IMO this will not end in BW’s favor and i hate that for him. I’m sure he’ll be fine and bounce back somewhere just fine but for a Highlands lifer I feel bad for him. This is eeerily similar to Chris Pardue’s time as head coach at Boyle County after he took over when Chuck Smith went to UK. Both are back at Boyle County now.

    As for the baseball coach I’m confused as to his role in all of this. You heard the baseball coach said something to someone about what BW said and then someone told someone else who told someone else who told someone else? Is that correct? You want people to react off of hearsay?

    It's actually pretty amusing waiting for them to keep coming up with new conspiracies.

    Equally amusing is watching them dodge questions after they've stuck their foot in their mouth.

    Baseball coach quote to AD “if BW is fired then I will resign”

    What does that mean other then Highlands would be taking applications for both a head football and baseball coach positions

    A few questions:

    1. Who told you that the baseball coach told the AD that? Are you again posting information from private conversations with absolutely nothing to validate it?

    2. How would what the baseball coach said affect what the football kids thought?

    I just don't understand how most of this is relevant.
