    It's a harder sell for the parents than the kids. Lots of misconceptions, and of course the fact that KY is a basketball state. Some of my best wrestlers got cut from the middle school basketball team, two of which have gone on to be high school state placers. And I've seen it have an impact on performance in other sports, especially football. The good news for the sport is I've seen many new youth programs start up in my 7 years of...

    Yep. I don't think schools are charging the money to make sports a profit center. It's expensive to run sports teams. And aside from Football and Basketball, none of them generate very much money.

    Matney from Johsnon Central came close in 2017, coaching the football team to a state title, and the wrestling team to a 3rd place finish. Both teams have won region a few times now I think. Jeff Trame has won region titles in 4 different sports I think...Volleyball, Baseball, Basketball and Slow Pitch softball.

    I wish more people would give wrestling a chance in this state. This is a great event every year, and the KHSAA keeps improving this event every year. If you haven't seen wrestling, you really need to check this out. There are so many 5 ft 8 kids filling up basketball benches across the state that could do well in this sport. And there are plenty of college opportunities to do it at the next level. Congrats to Union County for another...

    Hold on.....I wasnít making an argument for Daulton at all. My only point is in 4 starts and one big game I havenít seen anything from Mcarron that makes me think heís anything special either.

    What big game has he played so well in the NFL to say he looked more poised than Daulton?? His one playoff start he was average at best. Heíll end up somewhere, but itís no sure thing he ends up the starter.

    I understand that part. I also get the the player recognitions at the end of each season. What I don’t see or hear much about is the crowning of a champion, aside from hearing about it every now and then from the smaller schools. It just doesn’t seem like the team championship generates any excitement across NKY, especially when there’s no playoff or tournament.

    We are talking about two different things. I wasn't referring to, nor did I mention the murder rate. Specifically, I used the term "kill a lot of people at once". I'm talking about the "mass shootings". Large scale shootings are occurring at an alarmingly frequent rate.

    And furthermore, the argument that "guns don't kill people" only sidesteps the issue. Clearly, guns can't spontaneously shoot someone, and that's not the issue. The issue is how efficiently they do so, and the amount of damage that can be done, with little to no training. Lots of things are used to kill people. Guns can be used to kill a lot of people at once. And they are being used to do so at ever increasing and alarming rates.

    We don't. But we don't know for certain that he is either. It's the automatic assumption that he is that is the problem, and is so damaging to those who are mentally ill. Not all mentally ill people are violent or capable of committing these types of acts. Just like those who aren't mentally ill, aren't automatically not a threat. This labeling is one of the reasons why so many who are mentally ill, and need help, don't get it.

    I hear you. The only other thing I'd add, is that these judged events are again, scored (or whatever you want to call it) on a strict standard by a panel of multiple judges, whose scores are put together to form a consensus, which I think eliminates a good degree of subjectivity. It's not just one guy watching and deciding. And I think some of our thoughts about the subjectivity of the judging come from the fact that we (at least I know I...

    No doubt. Which is why we've got to get away from this blanket "mental health" statement. It's damaging to those who truly are, and no threat to society, which is the vast majority.

    And therein lies the problem. Any policy to help identify, predict, or prevent a potentially violent (for whatever reason) person from committing this type of act, is going to infringe some on freedoms. How much freedom are we willing to let go, and how big of a window into our lives do we want to give big brother?? Those questions get mighty tough to answer.

    There's a large degree of subjectivity in officiating any sport. Rules are interpreted, and for the most part, any officials decision is a judgement call. Sure, many of those calls are clear cut, but many are not, and often times can decide outcomes of games. Replay to a certain extent has addressed some of the subjectivity involved in making calls. And while judging can be subjective, it is based on a pretty strict set of rules and...

    I don't think it's so simple. I think labeling it as a mental health issue is easy and convenient. But it also helps push forward the stigmatization of those with mental health problems. Like anything else, the vast majority of those with mental health problems, aren't any danger to society, and often that labeling and fear is one of the factors that keep people from getting help who really need it. Rather than just labeling it as mental...

    Boxing (in the case of a fight that goes the distance)? Many Olympic events are decided by judges....gymnastics, Half-pipe and other aerial skiing events, diving, etc. I think just saying "if judges decide a winner" is way to simplistic. These events all take a great deal of athletic training, have a competitive element, and ultimately keep some sort of score. Regardless of how that score is tallied, I think they have to be considered...

    I've been in NKY for 20 years, and involved in sports for most of those 20 years. And I can't remember anyone ever claiming, announcing, or celebrating an NKAC championship in any of the major sports. As far as I've ever known, the NKAC is more of a "club" of schools that ultimately only provide recognition to players and teams, rather than an actual "conference" of teams for competition purposes. There is no tournament, conference...

    I'm not trying to be flippant, but my question to you would be, why does it matter? Is there really a need to label the person as one way or the other?? People change. If she says she's straight, who am I to say she's not, regardless of what she's done in the past.

    It's an excellent reason. And for me it's not getting in shape that's the issue. It's staying in shape. It seems like I go in and out of shape every 8-12 months. Maybe two suits would be the answer.....a fat suit and a skinny suit. Now I have a reason to go suit shopping.

    I don't doubt what you're saying. I'm just not sure I can justify paying big money for a suit that I'll only wear, maybe once a year. Couple that with my ever expanding and contracting waistline, an expensive, custom suit that I'll need to get tailored every year because I can't maintain a consistent weight, just isn't in the cards for me. If I wore a suit more often, I likely would have a few really nice suits.

    I've bought all my sport coats from JCP. If you catch the timing right, you can get great deals. We got my oldest son a half dozen sport coats last spring for under $150 total. A couple were under $20 and the most we paid for one was a little over $50. Obviously, these aren't high end sport coats, but they were all around $200+ regular price. I bought a few of my coats from Dillard's outlet store in Eastgate. I got a couple name brand...

    rjs4470 replied to a thread Buying a Suit in BGP Break Room
    I probably need to get a new suit or two. I bought my last suit about 10 years ago at Men’s Wearhouse. Can’t remeber what I spent, but I think it was in the $400-$500 range. Sadly, it’s way too small as I was in the best shape of my life then, which I’m not even close to now. I’m always yo-yoing with my weight, which makes suit buying difficult. My job doesnt require a suit...I mostly rock a sport coat when I need to dress up, and I’ve got...

    You have to be enrolled in one of the parish schools that will feed to NCC in order to play for NCC if they join the NKMSAA. Nothing has changed about that rule.

    The other thing about flag, is it also teaches kids how to play in space, and move their feet. You still have to be in good position to block and "tackle" in flag, sometimes more so than in the tackle game.
