If the shoe was on the other foot, the schools hollering now would screw the upstate public schools without a second thought. Sucks to be you, and I'm not unsympathetic to the schools that are just caught in the crossfire. But at the end of the day, the upstate and rural public schools are doing what they think is best for them. What's best for Brother Martin or Catholic HS doesn't enter into their thinking, nor should it.
One, name me a situation where the private schools, mainly in South LA, would be going out of their way to frick over North LA public schools.
Just because McCall HS in Tallulah has beaten my alma mater multiple times in the 2A basketball playoffs doesn't mean I'm going to get them sent to a separate set of playoffs under a bull shite claim of "fairness".
Two, tell me exactly how fricking over roughly 25% of the LHSAA membership because of two specific schools is going to do anything but cause more friction between various members instead of solving the entire problem, which is the perception, rightly or wrongly, that Curtis and Evangel recruit and have undue advantages.
Winnfield et all could have pushed forward legitimate measures to force the LHSAA leadership to look into Curtis and Evangel, given that those two particular schools have been a source of friction for nearly 20 years, as 4A wanted no part of Curtis and 5A wanted no part of Evangel before both were sent down to 2A.
In short, I'm fricking PISSED that the public schools and, by extension, the LHSAA has thrown all private schools under the bus because no one wants to address the goddamn elephants in the room.
