I have to vent for a minute....
was at the Dumas tourney last night and the JACKS were playing Dermott.... game was pretty ugly, no flow because of so many whistles... but that is not the point of this post. One of the JACKS players, a very good football player that was catching td's and returning interceptions just a week ago missed a dunk (and was fouled on the attempt) and some idiot two rows above me starts mouthing that "that boy ain't got it in him... he ain't ready for big boy basketball".... I almost lost it.... that boy, as I told him, was playing for a state championship just last week... and that boy, would be just fine in basketball by the end of the season.
It makes my blood boil when idiot fans start criticizing the players, especially when those particular fans don't know the first thing about the sport. I couldn't help myself when I asked him "how many times has your school been playing football in mid-december.... oh, yea.... you all have been playing basketball since the first week of november."
Not sure if the guy was a dumas or mcgehee fan, but either way, it was obvious he doesn't recognize talent when he sees it, nor does he have any class when it comes to commenting on players.
