tnassociationguy's comment history

First, I really feel sorry for this young man, because he's been put in the middle of all this. That being said, SMMH has put themselves in this "glass house" which they now occupy. It's not just this situation, but a conglomerate of incidents that have transpired in the past; such as fights on sidelines involving parents, underage drinking issues, and other unsportsman related mishaps. In reference to comments made about this young man's education; he can get an "quality education" anywhere. It depends on the individual student, not the school!! I have two daughters myself; one attends University of Notre Dame, and the other is at Vandy. Both are on merit scholarship,and graduated from Soddy Daisy High, so SMMH doesn't have some "magic status" that gets students into great colleges. Way too many Signal parents and students seem to be spewing this rubbish. TSSAA sanctions prep athletics for a reason, and if the rules are broken they take action. Aside from that, school athletics are supposed to be fun; however, it just takes a handful of people to take that away.

First of all, Signal Mtn has earned a nasty reputation, that has unfortunately tarnished the football team, and yes the school itself. All the incidents of fighting, parent issues on the sidelines, and other unsportsman mishaps have placed you in the "glass house" in which the school now resides. I've read too many comments from parents and students alike, on how Signal students receive this opportunity, or that merit, or how their school is better than other county schools. I have two daughters; one attends Notre Dame University, and the other is in her first year at Vanderbuilt, both on academic scholarship. No, neither of them went to Signal Mtn, so shut up with the brags!! Kids have the same opportunities in schools other than Signal, they just don't gloat about it. I'm affiliated with a local county school; as well, I'm also affiliated with the TSSAA. I personally voiced my opinion to strip Signal's wins for the first six games. What some don't understand is they can acutally go into next season as well. It's unfortunate because there are good kids at Signal who don't need this; however, if Signal keeps stirring the pot, just wait and see what happens!! Too many Signal folks like to blame everyone else for these problems,kinda like blaming pens and pencils for misspelled words.
