Kentucky High Schools Told No More Postgame Handshakes

LINK

quote:

Kentucky's athletic sanctioning body has ordered high schools not to conduct postgame handshakes in all sports following more than two dozen physical confrontations the past three years.

Tuesday's directive from Kentucky High School Athletic Association Commissioner Julian Tackett posted on its web site didn't mention specific fights or conflicts but said several fall sports have had postgame incidents. The organization says it's "disappointing" to take such action but that it became necessary because of occurrences statewide and nationally.

KHSAA has also instructed game officials to immediately leave facilities after contests or risk being penalized.

Teams can choose to ignore the order. Schools that can conduct handshakes must supervise the activity and report any incidents to KHSAA.

Member schools or coaches that engage in unsportsmanlike behavior will be fined and penalized.

"It stops short of being a rule but it says that if you choose to do it, you'd better be able to manage it," Tackett said Tuesday evening. "There's no penalty for doing it, but If you don't do it right, you're going to held accountable."

The commissioner said all sports have had problems over the years but cited a fight between volleyball players this fall as one example of what's happening.

With the state football playoffs just around the corner and the possibility of players shaking hands after an emotionally-charged elimination game, the directive was implemented to make schools take responsibility for conduct or not performing a ritual of sportsmanship.

"If you have 75 players shaking hands," Tackett said, "you'd better watch what's going on."

I think post game handshakes are stupid after grade school.

I started this gangster shite. When I was 8, 27 years ago, I SLUGGED this kid right in the face during the postgame handshake because I saw that he had spit on his hand. He went down hard and all of the parents were mortified but WTF..it had to be done. My parents and his parents made us go bowling together the next night to try to get us to make up but I wouldn't say one word to him and ended up grounded. It was probably the one situation that turned me into a badass later in life!

I know when we lost and I was highly mad. I didn't shake hands. Say good game or anything. That was my way of restraint from starting a fight

Fox News.

Either it's Obama's fault or part of The Liberal Conspiracy to take Jesus out of school.

the pros at least are sincere about it. In the NFL, they go seek out the guys they really want to say good game to.

When I was at Dunham, the football team got into a huge brawl with Southeastern over one of the opposing coaches telling a player "75 (players #) you ain't shit!" at the end of the game. Escalated from a pushing match to helmets swinging at each other and ultimately the LHSAA trying to turn it into a racial issue after hearing reports of someone dropping the n-word.

Multiple players on the team also ended up with staph infections every year after playing them. It had happened for 5 seasons straight by the time I graduated
