Way to discourage someone who is talented. That is ridiculous to me.

Local attorney John Williams was planning to meet with Jericho's parents Monday to discuss legal options.

"You don't have to be learned in the law to know in your heart that it's wrong," he said. "Now you have to be punished because you excel at something?"

The words "bunch of wimps" come to mind right away.

Yeah, I saw this yesterday.

My first thought was that he should start pegging kids so they can find out that it doesn't hurt that bad, or for that long.

I'm completely fine with them upping him to the next age bracket or something like that but just to say he's too good and he's not allowed to play and then to reassign the team he was on??? That sounds very suspicious to me.
