I think you may be a bit overly sanctimonious there, Professor. I don't think I've been around a high school football team in 15 or 20 years that didn't use profanity - including yours.

I thought the venom for MD was bad before, but to point out that boys full of testosterone actually curse before a football game, "OH DEAR"!!!!!

We don't want to offend any of the junior and senior transfers for fear of them transferring out. I'm just surprised there were no N words included because at Mater Dei games those words are thrown out

BuckW wrote:Source of the post Yes there was a SM player a couple of years ago that dropped the N word during the MD game. That player was dealt with and was hating life with the number of gassers he was forced to run.

Lets not pretend like making monkey sounds at black athletes, calling them slurs, and CHANTING at multi-racial players "which one are you?" and "where is daddy?" are things that were "corrected" by an apology, a school assembly, or changing the name of the student section.
The kids who did that were raised rotten by rotten human beings, the only correction would have been to expel them immediately. We'd have to hope their eventual departure as Men of Servite changed the tenor of the underbelly at Servite, but based on some of the continuing behavior in that student section and student body, that's questionable.
