    Guys, false reports of rape are extremely rare. Somewhere from 2-10%, and the 10% is a dubious number. Most agree the number is closer to 7% max.

    COACHING IN 2019

    It's with a heavy heart that I must announce, after praying and discussing it with my family, I will not be returning as head coach of the Tiburon Landsharks for the 2019 season of offline dynasty on NCAA Football 14. I won't rule out coaching again in the future and I will certainly miss the kids and the community, but between work and personal life, I've found that adding coaching to my schedule is too taxing when considering how many important things there are in life, like Red Dead Redemption 2. Ultimately, I want to be able to take some time to go hunting, catch some fish, and maybe take a trip to Tajiti. Just have faith, stick to the plan, and eventually another opportunity will arise. Probably somewhere in Scott County.

    Really they are the favorites in Region D. Best team from Wise/Pound since Pound went to state. I’m not sure how teams are going to defend them if you put McAmis and Hayes on same side of floor.

    I don't disagree but like any uprising, "movements" have to begin somewhere. While neither example you give is socially acceptable, they do deserve a very different punishment. My issue is, like anything else in modern society (including your example), a movement intended to give voice to and empower women has been perverted for political gain. Differentiating between the two isn't terribly difficult but most people are too lazy to do so. They would rather take the silly Facebook meme and believe it as absolute truth. Groupthink is an epidemic in our society!

    The perception (steaming from the Kavanaugh hearings and other public examples) is that women "aren't believed", and nothing could be further from the truth but young women seem to be getting this idea that they shouldn't report these types of things(rape, inappropriate touching, suggestive comments, assault, etc) because they wont be believed. There is also a HUGE difference between an accuser being believed and a accused perpetrator being proven guilty. I read some of those comments on social media regarding the young lady peaking at the school board meeting the other day, "no one believes her" and "the powers that be don't believe her" when that's not necessarily whats going on. The sad truth is claims need to be investigated 100% of the time, but that doesn't mean that convictions will occur 100% of the time, and the accused cant be punished based on accusations - removal from a teaching position based on accusations is a different situation than being found criminally liable

    Heard Central has a lot of size this year. They are playing great in team camps and playing as a team. With Hayes and Isaiah both on the floor, they will be hard to stop. Also have a lot of size under the goal.. Better watch out for the Warriors this year!!

    I have a daughter in high school and another in middle school. Action would be warranted on our part as parents if they attended this school system! As a father, especially a father with daughters, how could you not?

    If the “lack of institutional control” began before b-ball season began how could he be held liable? Seemingly nobody wants to find out the answer to that. Thats the whole problem here. You can’t expect any coach to have control over kids at all times. It’s not possible, students were disciplined. Not sure what else could be done. Holding any coach responsible for this is absurd. The only people who could want Moore removed are either A) Without knowledge of what happened B) Wanting some unknown political move C) Never want the basketball program to win or D) Still holding some grudge over Pat Jervis not getting the job when the school opened. Let the man coach and move on, if something else happens handle it. One issue that possibly carried over from the fall over an entire career is not worthy of removal.

    I'm not sure about the whole transferring him from the high school down to the elementary/middle school either. As a parent who has a daughter going into middle school in August, I would be outraged by that move if that were the school she were attending. I know I said earlier in the thread that I though Jimbo was an a-hole, but not that TYPE of a-hole, it's quite hard to argue when 16 people have come forward now.

    I did. Although I was only about 10 years old at the time, I took an active interest in the NBA (along with a lot of other people) when Magic and Bird came into the league. But everybody was already aware of Moses Malone by then. He was an absolute beast in the early 1980's. Pretty much put Houston on his shoulders and carried them to the 1981 Finals. And he was the missing link that allowed the 76ers to briefly break the stranglehold that the Celtics and Lakers had on the league when he moved to Philadelphia. I will always argue that the 1983 Sixers were the very best team in the history of the NBA -- but that's only true because of Malone. And the team was never the same after his ankle injuries the following year. That's the kind of impact that I observed.

    Statistically, Malone was FAR superior and it’s not even close. The argument with championships is a bit unfair, because Malone got saddled with the bad fortune of coming up during the Celtics/Lakers era. You had a bunch of owners and GMs in that era who were bonafide idiots. There’s actually a thing called the “Ted Stepien Rule” because Cleveland’s owner/GM kept trading his 1st round pick to the Celtics every single year (not protected, and Cleveland sucked so badly that it was always a top-5 pick. Moses played for Houston (made a conference finals) and Philadelphia (made 2 conference finals) in that era. Name me 1 other player from the ‘81 Rockets without looking. Duncan came up in an era where collective bargaining pretty much ensured there’d be no “super team” like the Bulls for the next 15 years. As long as you surrounded him with decent talent, he would give you 21-11 and you’d bulldoze the s*** sandwiches of teams in the Western Conference that were around after the Lakers’ demise. Anyone have fond memories of those Detroit/San Antonio finals? History’s going to remember Duncan as the better player because of the titles, the same way some people incorrectly think John Elway was a better QB than Dan Marino.

    Just saw this on the GA HS Sports Board: https://www.independentmail.com/story/sports/2019/06/17/high-school-coach-jeff-herron-announces-retirement-t-l-hanna-football-anderson-sc/1475673001/ excerpt: Jeff Herron never knew how hard it would be to walk away – until he did. After 37 years of coaching, the last two of those years at T.L. Hanna High School, Herron announced his retirement on Monday morning. I watched Herron coach in the SC FB 5A Championship game against Dutch Fork held at University of South Carolina last year. ( I watched on the NFHS network and the broadcast of the game was night and day difference to other HS games I've previously viewed on the NFHS . I'm guessing, the broadcasting capabilities in the USC Stadium are much more sophisticated than some of the smaller venues ) (Former Gate City alum and E&H football player)

    The issue I have with the #MeToo movement is that it’s much too broad in terms of scope. I am uneasy lumping “a female had her rear smacked by a male at a club” with “a female was raped by a male”. The instances of the first will far outnumber the instances of the second, and I do not believe it is just to the victims of the more heinous offense to consider the two instances moral social equivalents. Just my $.02.

    Am I the only one surprised by this decision??? I had an idea of where I thought he would go (no, not VT) but this one kinda came out of nowhere...wonder what they are giving these kids at UNC besides a degree without classes...

    Effects 88.7% of rape victims are women on average 68% of sexual assaults go unreported 98% of rapists will not spend time in jail Juveniles accounted for 16% of forcible rape arrestees in 1995 and 17% of those arrested for other sex offenses 1 in 4 women will face sexual abuse in their lifetime Since 89% of victims of sexual abuse are female and factoring in the above information, what would you expect? This is how any "movement" begins.....to bring attention to glaring disparities in the way humans are being treated! #MeToo is not perfect but it's a start and it's not going away.

    Guys, if he was saying sexual stuff to high school girls, he deserves to be fired. End of story. This isn't about #MeToo or anything else, it's about protecting young girls from being sexually harassed or objectified by a teacher or someone in authority. It's not appropriate and it's not okay. If he didnt, then he has every right to defend himself. But the number one concern shouldn't be his job or status as a football coach, it should be keeping creeps or worse out of schools and away from young people.
