    WOW! I was just amazed when I saw this. Really makes you wonder about a few things in this world.

    I am really amazed that after 409 postings you havent learned to make a link clickable....wonder why you aint getting any responses?

    I can see why other parents want her banned. She is so tall, she "spoils" the competition for the others. It isnt her fault. They should let her play on the high school team.

    WOW. I'm amazed you found the time and energy to make such a comment. Not all of us live on the computer to make 3775 posts. Someone seems a bit full of themself. I'm gay but I know I don't like dicks.

    I'm also amazed that for your age you haven't seemed to learn the basic rule of courtesy that a good parent would've and should taught you while you growing up. "If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all."

    If it's humor you wrote then I clearly missed the punchline and FYI...I don't ever wonder why people don't respond to posts I create. For all I know it just might not be something they are interested in.

    Hey, Guy101

    I'll stay on topic and not make any rude, smart ass remarks that are unnecessary...

    The ones with the money do the talking. If a rich parent of a kid on another team threatened to stop making their annual donation or offered an annual donation, that would definitely make them "change the rules."

    That's my opinion based on my own highschool experience. When someone asked the coach of our football team why we suck, he said quite frankly, "because if little johnnie doesn't get to play, even though he sucks, his rich mommy and daddy won't donate cash to the school."

    It's sad but true.

    It is sad. To make matters even worse it was the parents of other team players on other teams that complained about it. How ridiculous is that.

    At least it seems that she isn't letting it get to her. She still has that spark. We'll see her in the pros soon enough.

    Yeah. It is a good thing that she is dealing with it so well and isn't letting it get her down. It's just really unfortunate that she has to deal with that sort thing at such a young age.

    As a mixed person myself I can completely understand where she is coming from. Also it sucks because it's easy to see the insecurities of some of the parents and in some ways how very sexist they seem. Her height had nothing to do with the outcome of the situation in my opinion. Someone's parent just didn't like seeing a girl school their son on the court. I'll bet that if it had been another male then no one would've said a thing and the guy probably would've been congratulated on his skills at such a young age.

    Sometimes a parents ego is the worst thing of all.

    TALK ABOUT RUDE!

    A simple apology for not inserting a clickable link would have done so much better. ...didnt your parents teach you better?

    Again WOW and again someone is kinda full of themself.

    Why should I have to apologize when all YOU had to do was simply comment on the original topic that I posted and leave the sarcasim out or better yet not comment at all. Instead you make a wisecrack that was clearly aimed at me and anyone who reads it would think it was an attack on my intelligence.

    I'm not gonna apologize for not making a link "click accessible" for you to use. If anything I'm sorry you were too lazy to type in the link to see what it was about. I'm sorry you couldn't resist and control your action which resulted in that comment. I give as good as I get, buddy, and in some cases I give better then what I get.

    There's your apology and at the same I'll give thanks too. Thanks for quickly ruining an innocent and simple thread in record time upon it's posting all thanks to your comment.

    I love how you fail to see your mistake in the situation and then try to make me seem like the culprit. What nerve. You are clearly a man with vision.

    Posted links are to be made clickable. To do otherwise is just simply rude to those you are inviting to view. It is better for you to make it clickable than to ask all of RJ to copy and paste.

    I submit the dearth of responses as supporting evidence to the correctness of my etiquette to your lack of responsibility and oh so predictable response.

    Sorry buddy. You don't get to be the victor of this little battle. Your comment fueled this and you can't even see that and then try to justify it with some excuse of "they are meant to be clickable" and then again try to pass me off as the rude one. Please. That's weak and childish and there's nothing worse then seeing a grown man who is incapable of realizing his mistake and then blaming others for his lack of ownership.

    C'mon now. If you had any etiquette you wouldn't have needed to make such a comment in the first place and would've just let it be. You are in no such postion to even attempt to correct anyone, especially me. Who do you think you are? Your comments are pretty predicitable too and clearly you lack the ability to take responsibility for your own actions and have an admittance problem. I notice you didn't apologize yet. Your evidence of such is in your comment which I'll use as well since it's very evident that you lack etiquette.

    Never thought you were the type to be this rude and stubborn considering that I've enjoyed a few of your threads that were pretty intelligent but I guess appearances aren't everything and a person's true nature comes out when they are figured out.

    I look forward to seeing another predictable response.

    She's taller than I! Wah. She's a she and is over 6' tall, and little Jimmy's dad got upset. Pretty lame, but it's not going to dampen her spirits!

    Caslon-grasshopper, you must master the triple click. Triple clicking will select the entire horizontal line of text, after which you may either Ctrl+c or right click copy. Ctrl+V to paste.

    And why do you always complain about non-linked addresses when it would take 1/10000th the time to simply copy|paste the address into your address bar?

    As a parent I find this pretty disgusting. A child should be encouraged to accel. And if other kids aren't as good, playing with her can do 2 things... Either teach the spoiled kids and their rotten parents that if someone is better than them, let's find a loop hole to get them out of the way, or... Let's see what we can learn from this person that is better than us and see if we can become better parents.

    Growing up, I always golfed and played tennis with people that were better than me. More talented or even better coached. Because from playing with them, I learned to push myself to become better.

    I think that it is a disgusting shame what the parents of the other players are teaching their children.

    Oh I can cut and paste with the best of them.

    But it would take no time if it were clickable ... and clickable is the polite and considerate thing to do.

    Altho the onus of this etiquette crusade is great. It is a cross that I must bear. Even if I am mocked and crowned with a crown of thorns.

    I agree with you, Polo, if it were simply a question of talent. But don't you think it really is a question of height? She is so tall for her (and the other children's) age that it takes the sport out of the game for the other kids.

    It's not her height that is the problem.
    I work with lots of kids in my spare time and she's maybe 2-3 inches taller then most. Heck at the age 12 I was 5"10 and am now 6"2.

    If you wanna talk about being considerate then that would've been you not making such a comment in the first place. You go ahead and bear that crown but know that it's not a crown of thorns but rather something else. You aren't worth copying. Don't flatter yourself.

    If she was a boy this wouldn't have made the news with such negativity.

    I'm sure the school probably does have a girls basketball team but she enjoys playing with the guys. No crime there. She says it herslef in the apparently unclickable link I posted that some seemto find rude and inconsiderate and which shows an obvious lack of politeness.

    I hade no ide it wuz sujh a big deal to soome. :-)

    I see what you're saying, but they wouldn't be able to use this loop hole if it was a boy. The parents may look for another one... but they couldn't use this one.

    Crown of thorns.... Really? Did you really have to go to Jesus there buddy? It's not really that serious.
