If he wasn't a replacement ref, that was uncalled for.
"Through the hard work of thousands of educators and volunteers nationwide, we have helped make American schools a more welcoming, inclusive and respectful place for all students," said Sharon McIntyre, president of the Stop Bullying Now Coalition. "The results have been overwhelmingly positive."
But not everyone agrees. While the outreach has reduced bullying, it has also seen youth football participation particularly among larger boys who play offensive and defensive line plummet.
"This anti-bullying push is killing football in this country," said Robb Medowski, who runs youth football camps throughout the Midwest. "We need huge, angry, hate-filled children who like inflicting pain on others, especially on the line of scrimmage. While life may be better for the nerds and pansies, we could be 10 to 15 years away from not having any linemen. I don't think America wants that to happen."
Anti-bullying programs universally stress compassion and non-violence, while football encourages players to be violent and merciless.
"People want to call them 'bullies,' well I call them the future star left tackles of the NFL," said Medowski. "Show me any good linemen in the pros today, and I'll show you someone who spent his childhood beating up dweebs. Take that intolerance and aggression away and you're left with a giant flower arranger. Flower arrangers don't make NFL money or fill stadiums with people."
if that makes any sense.
